High Expectations

This song is by Alin Coen Band and appears on the album We're Not The Ones We Thought We Were (2013).

Tell me what you're waiting for
You tended your garden, you've planted
No ferns nor carnations
Just high expectations

Till they came to overgrow
All other intentions you mentioned
It's been a frustration
You're lost in stagnation

Nowhere to plant
The small seed in your hand
Though you know of its grace
If you want its growth, go and give it space

Ln the seed there is a gorgeous plan
Of a trunk, of a crown and roots
It will grow for as long as it can
Bearing blossom and bearing fruits

Take another look around
An effort deciphering the nature
Of your expectations
Though you've lost your patience

Dig a spade into the ground
And tear out what's casting a shadow
On hopes and temptations
Your savaged plantations

You're holding a seed
That might grow to exceed
All the grace in the yard
If you give it space, growth can finally start

In the seed there is a gorgeous plan
Of a trunk, of a crown and roots
It will grow for as long as it can
Bearing blossom and bearing fruits

Give the seed the protection it needs to thrive
Learn to love imperfection as a part of life

Tell me what you're waiting for
You tended your garden. You've planted
No ferns nor carnations
Just high expectations

Till they came to overgrow
All other intentions you mentioned
You'll wait for the right time
You'll wait all your lifetime
