don't get your hopes up

those days when things go well
make it feel like you're one step closer
to the place you start to dwell
on better things to come
the way you do
when you're young
and have your whole life
ahead of you
when nothing can get you down
when no matter how many times
they say no
you've got no doubt
the next time is going to be
a resounding yes
seems to me
the moment they start telling you
not to get your hopes up
it's all downhill from there
that bittersweet moment
the arduous uphill climb begins
