“Hopes up”

By Melia Hudgin


This is a song about my never-ending tumultuous feelings about having relationships at the age I am right now (18). It’s my newest song; I feel like a lot of people can relate to unrequited love. “Hopes up” explores the feeling of being used.



baby i’m done being used

i know they never loved me back

i get that


because


i’m so fucking hard to love


but why’d you get my hopes up

hopes up


why did you lie to me


Why’d you get my hopes up

hopes up


and make me believe


that you were in love

in love with me


that you were in love

in love with me


baby i’m done being used

i know they never loved me back

i get that


because


i’m so fucking hard to love


but why’d you get my hopes up

hopes up


why did you lie to me


Why’d you get my hopes up

hopes up


and make me believe


that you were in love


in love with me



that you were in love


in love with me




baby you don’t need to pretend


cause i know exactly

how this is gonna end


you’ll just leave me


while i’m bleeding


so i beg


of you


please don’t get my hopes up

hopes up


don’t lie to me


please don’t get my hopes up

hopes up


and make me believe

that you’re in love


in love with me


that you’re in love


in love with me


That you’re in love


That you’re in love
