Take what you want do you want it
All that you want, do you want it
It's what you say that you've got nothing to hide
With all these expectations
Hey I dunno, would you ever
Thought you could change no whenever
I'm so afraid I've got nothing to hide
It's not a new sensation

Oh, these expectations keep on pulling at me
Oh, I just can't hold on

Hey, I never thought you could ever
Become asway, no I never
If you could change would it still be the same
With all these expectations
But hey if I'm wrong I'll admit it
At least I'll hope I'd admit it
I'm still afraid I've got nothing to prove
It's not a new sensation

Oh these expectations keep on pulling at me
Oh, I just can't hold on
Oh these expectations keep on pulling at me
Oh, I just can't hold on

I'll try if I want
Not coz you say
It would be better
I'll try walking away
If that's what you say and you mean it

Oh these expectations keep on pulling at me
Oh, I just can't hold on
Oh these expectations keep on pulling at me
Oh, I just can't hold on

    General Comment"If you could change would it still be the same, With all these expectations"
    Those are my favoutire lyrics in the song, saying how if he reached the expectations he was suppose to meet, for his bird, would she just make new expectations thus leading him to never be what she wanted him to be. They always stil out in the song.

    I don't know if I'm right but I think "Oh these expectations keep on pulling at me. Oh, I just can't hold on" Means that he might break up with her because he can't hold on to what she wants him to be because it's all too much. But I don't know.
