ALLEN TOUSSAINT lyrics - Am I Expecting Too Much?

ALLEN TOUSSAINT
"Am I Expecting Too Much?"
(Allen Toussaint)

Am I expecting too much?
Am I expecting too much?

I felt the thrill of your warm embrace
Now I can't look into another face
You said just friends we'll always be
And yet, from time to time you make love to me

Hour after hour, night and day
I just can't tear my heart away
I'd love to go out and make a scene
But I'm hypnotized by your love machine

Am I expecting too much
When I expect to be loved by you
Am I expecting too much
When I expect to be loved by you

Crippled my soul with your hit and run
Though sometimes it was lots of fun
Taking my body and mind through the motions
Then you go to follow the sun

You had your problems, I know you do
But I'm the man that understands you
So let your arrow fly high in the sky
And give that look of love that's in your eyes

Am I expecting too much
When I expect to be loved by you
Am I expecting too much
When I expect your love to be true

Am I expecting too much
When I expect to be loved by you
Am I expecting too much
When I expect your love to be true
