Oui 3 - Great Expectation lyrics

Desperation scars her face
Pushing herself to stay with the pace
Kidding herself that any day now
Luck is gonna help her keep the vow
Somewhere down the line she got side tracked
And she's far too proud
To take the ride back home
Till she can do it in style
So for now she's the Queen in Exile

Great expectations
Oh Mother aren't you proud of me now?
The girl ain't ready to throw in the towel
She wouldn't change even if she did know how
Great expectations
Oh Father aren't you proud of me now?

How can she tell if she's sinking or swimming
If she's forgotten how it was in the beginning
But once she gets her mind in the right frame
She'll streak ahead in this game of bluff
That she's playing with fate
She's a woman you should never underestimate
Because of the fact that when all else fails
The passage of time is gonna tip the scales

Great expectations
Oh Mother aren't you proud of me now?
She ain't about to throw in th towel
She wouldn't change if she did know how

She's got the faith, trust in a power unknown
Sticking to the job like a dog to a bone
Bone, is what this song gets close to
She's not living it the way that she's supposed to
She is supposed to be living by the blue print
Pa Pa's on standby dropping hints
And questions that defy response
Try to be the daughter that your Mother wants

CONGRATULATIONS
CONGRATULATIONS
Great expectations
Oh Mother aren't you proud of me now?
Great expectations
Oh Father aren't you proud of me now?

WE LOVE YOU
WE LOVE YOU (OF COURSE WE DO!)
WE LOVE YOU

Great expectations
Oh Mother aren't you proud of me now?

WE LOVE YOU
I'TS ONLY BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU MY DEAR!
