Hopelessly Coping

Album: Single release only (2015)
Charted: 49
  • Forget about your name
    Your reputation
    Put down your occupation
    And your education
    I heard what you said
    About it being complicated
    It ain't simple either way
    Yes, a dream will make you pay

    Somebody out here counting on you
    To break through somehow
    Somebody out here counting on you
    To break through somehow

    'Cause you don't even know it
    Where are you going?
    Or haven't you noticed
    You're hopelessly coping?

    Settle, settle, settle down
    Instead of running, running 'round
    Settle, settle, settle down
    Instead of running, running 'round

    Settle, settle, settle down
    Instead of running, running 'round
    Settle, down, settle

    So why play it safe?
    What you mean, "just in case?"
    Well of course you might fail
    But that's what it takes
    Can't run from the doubts
    Either way you're gonna struggle
    Look in the mirror in awe
    Tell yourself it ain't worth the trouble

    Somebody out here counting on you
    To break through somehow

    And you don't even know it
    Where are you going?
    Or haven't you noticed
    You're hopelessly coping?

    And you don't even know it
    Where are you going?
    Or haven't you noticed
    You're hopelessly coping?

    Settle, settle, settle down
    Instead of running, running 'round
    Settle, settle, settle down
    Instead of running, running 'round

    Settle, settle, settle down
    Instead of running, running 'round
    Settle, down, settle

    'Cause you don't even know it
    Where are you going?
    Or haven't you noticed
    You're hopelessly coping? Writer/s: BRAD ELLIS, MARK WILKINSON, SETON DAUNT, THABO MKWANANZI
