Bruce Springsteen - High Hopes Lyrics




Monday mornin' runs to Sunday night
A scream slow me down before the new year dies
Won't take much to kill a lovin' smile
And every mother with a baby cryin' in her arms, singin'
Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
Got high hopes
I got high hopes
I got high hopes
I got high hopes

Yeah comin' from the city, comin' from the wild
I see a breathless army breakin' like a cloud
They're gonna smother love, they're gonna shoot your hopes
Before the meek inherit they'll learn to hate themselves
Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
Got high hopes
I got high hopes
I got high hopes
Yeah, I got high hopes
Roy!
Got high hopes
Yeah, I got high hopes
I got high hopes
I got high hopes

Yeah so tell me someone now, what's the price
I wanna buy some time and maybe live my life
I wanna have a wife, I wanna have some kids
I wanna look in their eyes and know they'll stand a chance

Give me help, give me strength
Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
Give me love, give me peace
Don't you know these days you pay for everything
High hopes
Got high hopes
I got high hopes
Yeah, I got high hopes
Break!
High hopes
I got high hopes
Yeah, I got high hopes
I got high hopes
Yiiii, (I got) high hopes
Yeah, high hopes
Whoa, high hopes
High hopes
Yeah, well, I got high hopes
Yiiii, got high hopes
Yeah, high hopes
Yeah, (I got) high hopes
Yeah, high hopes
Yeah, I got high hopes
High hopes

    Monday morning runs to Sunday night
    Screaming slow me down before the new year dies
    It won't take much to kill a lovin' smile
    And every mother with a baby crying in her arms singin'

    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes

    Comin' from the city, comin' from the wild
    I see a breathless army
    Breaking like a cloud
    They're gonna smother love
    They're gonna shoot your hopes
    Before the meek inherit
    They'll learn to hate themselves

    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes

    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    Got high hopes
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes

    So tell me someone now, what's the price
    I wanna buy some time

    I wanna have a wife, I wanna have some kids
    I wanna look in their eyes
    And know they stand a chance

    Give me help, give me strength

  3. Lynn Rogers

    I like this because it is different

  4. Carin Urdahl-Aasen

    Brucr Springsteen, you stole this from Tim Mc O'Connor. Aka #Ledfoot
    Anyway, his vertion of his song is so much better ✌

  5. Irina Stefan

    I was searching for high hopes from panic! at the disco. Somehow I was not dissapointed.

  6. Nicholas Goodrum

    Never knew too much about the music of Springsteen, but got to say, I love this album 🎧👌🎼👏
    Down In The Hole IS awesome 🎸🥁😥

  15. Elvis Sršen NoA

    Mr Tom Morello :)

  16. Dante

    Just not as good as he used to be. The lyrics come across as something penned as a B side. I'm a longtime fan but this just isn't great 'Bruce'.

  21. Corbz273

    That godawful Panic! At the Disco song that constantly plays on the radio isn't the real High Hopes, this one by the Boss is!

  22. Valentina Foglio

    the old boss il always the best.

  23. Cristina Elena Rincon Llorca

    Wow!!!!!

  24. GoodMrDawes

    Awesome Album

  25. Otis 777

    all you "mister america"- the boss -bruce springsteen fans. you´ll have to cry. High Hopes was written by Tim Scott Mc Connell/the Havalinas in 1990. springsteen is the biggest fan of tims talent,said by himself. im not a bruce hater. i got the cds devils and dust and the pete seeger sessions and i dont know much more than this,exept the hits. without a doubt,he´s a great musican ..but i dont like to see him wearing the american flag in the most of his concerts. i got this bitter feeling its a little opportunism and not patriotism. BUT!, maybe im wrong. BUT... its a place for music here,not politic. so,even if you missunderstood or hate me...one tip : listen to the songs of Tim. he played and released it under the name LEDFOOT !!! for example the song AS I AM... HIGH HOPES...COLD LIGHT OF DAY.........enoy..

  35. ΝΙΚΟΣ ΠΑΠΑΔΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ

    its not a cover from havalinas???

  36. Vern Pascal

    Let's hope his new album is a lot more interesting than Wrecking Ball and High Hopes, most of which is mediocrity.

  37. Biblioteca Pública Casa de las Conchas Salamanca

    ¿Quién nos impide seguir teniendo grandes esperanzas? Como dice Bruce Springsteen en su disco High Hopes (Altas Esperanzas). El álbum del Boss, el decimoctavo de su carrera incluirá, junto a Springsteen, a los miembros del grupo E Street Band, y al guitarrista Tom Morello. Feliz día lleno de esperanzas!!

  38. Federico Castro

    All the things you ask, JESUS will give you!!!!! HIG HOPES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. Vern Pascal

    There are two Springsteen's the guy who was truly great till Tunnel Of Love and the guy afterward who is not even close. 3'4 of the songs on High Hopes, including this would never been released prior to TOL. Many of his unreleased songs at least 3 dozen or so at the time ,beat the hell out of High Hopes.

  40. Marko Ivančan

    KLASIK NOVIJEG VREMENA,BRUCE KRALJ PARDON BOSS!!

  41. Danny

    @Ian Friedman Still one of the best 6 or 7 Springsteen's songs.

  59. Laura Sole Luna

  60. Adam McDermott

  61. shin yama

  62. maybrittmonb

    nice :)

  63. Alberto Lucciarini

    very beautiful

  64. Shadon Pearls

    Love this song and message. You can watch our cover on this channel ;)

    NeoGeo12

    listen to the original featured in the 1980s Neo Noir slamdance.

  65. jallakk

    The original is much better

    Tim Scott McConnell wrote the song and sings it much better

    CarSVernon

    fuck yeah. though most ppl mean from Havalinas, but I heard it first from Slam Dance, one of the most underrated soundtracks of all time, I might upload it.

  66. Josh Goldsmith

    mr nolan

  67. Promised Land Radio

    This song holds up. We in Asbury Park continue to salute you!

  68. Dražen Klisurić

    I think Bruce has dementia.  His tax lawyers and accountants are writing his news songs.

    david letterman

    @Steven Campbell
    Wrecking Ball an amazing album???
    Mediocre on its best day (and that is generous)
    We Take Care of Our Own (passable at best)
    Easy Money (dreadful)
    Shackled and Drawn (even worse)
    Jack of All Trades (so bad its funny)
    Death to My Hometown (lame)
    The Depression (bad)
    Wrecking Ball (bad)
    You've Got It (no it doesn't!!!)
    Rocky Ground (so bad it's funny)
    Land of Hope and Dreams (best track but far from a gem)
    The rest... crap.

    Steven Campbell

    +david letterman Each to its own. I thought Death To My Hometown was one of his best ever. What's your favourite Springsteen album?

    david letterman

    @Steven Campbell
    All of the albums before Born in the USA
    are damn near perfect.
    In my humble opinion, the first album (Greeting from...) was his best, and each album after that is a slow march downhill.
    But the degradation is minimal enough from album to album. So The River is still an amazing album filled with gems.
    Born in the USA is still a terrific album, but it's a drop off from the others for two crucial reasons:
    1) lyrically the album doesn't have the poetry that the others have
    2) musically, Bruce stopped taking breaking ground; each song is completely cookie cutter in form (verse chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, verse, chorus).

    Sadly, the lyrical and musical blandness that began with Born in the USA would just be the beginning of Bruce's fall from brilliance to mainstream commercial recording artist. The only break in that trend would be The Rising, the only post 9/11 album that can be considered a great album.

    Bruce had no greater fan then me.
    I still love the early music, and there are one off gems like Radio Nowhere on the later day albums that recall the early days.
    But Bruce is largely spent.
    He is scraping by.
    Lyrically he is spent.
    Musically he peaked with Born to Run.
    That was the last time he took any real chances and broke a major sweat.

    I know it sounds like I am being tough on Bruce, but I am just being honest.
    I am sure there are many die hard Bruce fans who share my views.

    If you want to see quickly and in the most brazen terms how much Bruce has fallen, listen to Lost in the Flood and then Harry's Place...

    If that doesn't completely depress you, compare New York City Serenade to Rocky Ground

    All I can say is - WHAT THE FUCK!!!!

    Steven Campbell

    +david letterman I love Greetings from Asbury and Nebraska probably his two best albums but you have to admit his live shows are still better than any other artist working today and I thought Devil and Dust was great. Also his new solo album is intriguing.

    david letterman

    @Steven Campbell
    Yes, his live shows are still great. BUT COMPARE HIS LIVE SHOWS OVER THE LAST DECADE TO HAMMERSMITH ODEON, LONDON '75.
    That is one of the greatest concerts ever recorded. NO JOKE.
    Bruce and the E Street Band were on the high wire from beginning to end. They left it all out on the stage that night. They took real risks with no safety harnesses. Those early shows were unpredictable and organic. You never knew what would happen. Anything could happen.
    Now, the live shows could be produced by Disney. You get a decent formulaic show that he puts on city to city with basically no changes, no risks. What you get in San Diego in Sep. is what you largely get in Boston in May.
    Frankly, I am amazed he isn't bored out of his mind and the band doesn't read him the riot act. But they don't because he controls the purse strings. Bruce is a tough boss. And they don't want to get fired again.

    Also, do you have SPOTIFY. IF NOT DOWNLOAD THE FREE VERSION ASAP. AMAZING. LISTENING TO BRUCE, THANKS TO YOU, RIGHT NOW.

  70. david letterman

    High Hopes (song and album) is Exhibit A in the Sad Decline and Fall of Bruce Springsteen.  God rest his soul.

  71. Tomislav Duić

    Odlična stvar...tjera te da ju ponavljaš i ponavljaš .. :))

  72. Alex Corbett

    Does remind me a bit of the newest Charlie and the chocolate film.......but still a great song.

  73. Al Standridge

    Thanks Boss, they just can't take my High Hopes

  74. ahileas buk

    suuupeer 

  75. Mihir Thakur

    One of the best lines of lyrics ever written - "Give a soul a night of fearless sleep"

  76. P. Earth

     
    *Being thinking creatures is just a small difference, but it can make all the difference if we use it and learn the truth about Life & Death.* To Know It, Google: _TruthContest_
     

    Carolina Hicks

    I agree with that. I'll check it out. People need the truth, whatever it is, wherever it's hiding.

    Puff Razorblake

    Right on my brother.

  77. Little Old White Lady From Kansas

    Let's get our hopes up!

  78. Rosanna Corsi

    I love you i ,m a yout fan i love your song and i happy when i listen you

  79. 田原大地

    I hope that BOSS comes to Japan
    My hope is that BOSS comes to Japan!

  80. Itatiium Tadeu

    Looks a lot like the sound of Chico Science From Brazil... I like it

  81. RADE VUKSANOVIC

    THERE IS ONLY ONE BOSS!!!

  82. Lou Curelop

    Well I use too....hard to be hopeful when you keep getting burned.

  83. adriankoastur7

    He's really the fucking BOSS

  84. Paul Italia

    Grande Bruce, come sempre

  85. ひろぽん

    さすが
    年とっても
    相変わらず
    力強くていいですな

  86. terrapinbobby

    This song blows

  87. Maggie Und

    Happy Birthday Bruce!!! Thanx for being an inspiration 🎂 ❤️

  88. Avenarius

    Another crappy Springsteen album full of his tired cliché's. Bob Dylan "heir" hasn't put out a solid album since Magic.

    Avenarius

    True, but take a look at the last four.  I guess that's why he's going to milk the River now.

  89. ziara garcia

    i got high hopes. free palestine!

    Maxim Sokol

    It will never happen. Not until they free them self's! Not until they stop choosing ex militant terror supporting "president" and other ex-children killing figures to speak in their behalf. Not until they stop support and going blindly with the Hamas regime in Gaza that was given so many by their "enemy" and promised so much to their people and failed them time after time by engaging useless yearByYear conflict that hurt only their people, and begging money from the ignorant heads of Europe for money in the excuse for humanity and tunneling this money for war effort, rocket that hitting not army bases but civilian towns and cities, schools and beaches and tunnels underneath kindergardens.
    Not until they truly realized that than decades longing conflict only working for the goodness and behalf of their lobbyist and head's of state that living in enormous villas and driving luxuries cars.
    And please don't be CNN head titles blind believer. Check the facts your self.
    Check the CampDavid talks from 2000, check what happens in 2004 and what was given. Check 2005, 2006,2007,2008 what happens and why what was given and what came from it. Don't be a tack a side until you know al. The facts and happenings that led to what is today.

    Juliette Welch

    it might happen 1 day though

    Joseph Davis

    Just how much toilet paper did you use to pull THAT nonsense outta your sphincter?! LOL

  90. Ester Sousa

    Adorei o Bruce quando veio a Portugal foi um espectáculo memorável

  95. vjm007

    wow, nice!

  96. Emanuele Pirazzi

    thanks bruce 

  97. Sheterox

    Cool gast

  98. jazzyjaz53

    Gotta love the Boss, but he's gotten very political and depressing in some of his songs, kinda scaring me

    24556136

    I agree his music has gotten kind of political and some very religious or maybe perhaps boring but he is ansolutely right and sings from the heart and sadly many people can relate

  99. vegass04

    Nice piece of music but i would rather take the other "High hopes" and day.., Pink Floyd ofcourse.
