High Lyrics

I hope you think of me high
I hope you think of me highly
When you're?with?someone else
I know?your friends all lie
I know your?friends don't like me
They want you for themselves

Today I've called to tell you that I'm changing
But I...

    This song, to me, talks about a relationship that ended and one party is missing the feeling that bliss and joy, or feeling 'high'. "waking up in different spaces...built to last more than a night." talking (I assume) about one night stands where there is not a real connection between the parties involved, meaning there is no feeling of that high talked so much about from the protagonist's relationship. In the chorus bringing in the reference to being High, I personally believe high is not meaning substances but meaning being in that state of mind where everything is so perfect and so happy it feels like you are under some influence. In Verse 2 it says "Ill never meet your expectations.." talking about how this partnership has created a facade of the protagonist of what isn't reality.
    In short from my perspective, this is a song about that feeling of bliss and happiness, being represented as feeling high, and this song express' the feeling of emptiness after that high is no more.

    For my interpretation I think the song high means that somebody/Person is in love with a girl and is trying to impress her, hoping she thinks of him high, Even though she is with somebody else. So I mainly think it is about this guy trying to attract a girl and date her. Oh and also this is just a guess, I dont really know what it is about.
