"What were your expecting" as written by Howard Benson and Writers Unknown....
I know what you must be thinking
You're not right
You should know I'm not your baby
Not tonight
(I never was)

The kinda girl to trip and fall in love
(I never was)
The kinda sayin enough is not enough
(I never was)
The touchy feely co-dependent kind
I like the feeling but I'm not on cloud 9

You love it
You hate it
You think it
You say it
You want it
You need it
I tell ya but you don't believe it

What were you expecting
Another lullaby
Are you kidding
You must be high
You must be high
It was just one kiss

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

I don't need your flowers
They'll just go to waste
I don't want your candy
'Cause I don't

Like the taste
(I never was)
The possibility that I'd stick around
(I never was)

My intention just to let you down
(I never was)
The kind girl that's good at playin' house

You want it
You need it
I tell ya but you don't believe it

What were you expecting
Another lullaby
Are you kidding
You must be high
You must be high
Cause it was just one kiss

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

Everything about you
Makes me scream
Be a man
And get up off your knees
Trying to say this in the nicest way

What were you expecting
Another lullaby
Are you kidding
You must be high

What were you expecting
Another lullaby
Are you kidding
You must be high
You must be high
Cause it was just one kiss

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

(Hey)
(Hey)
(Hey)

    General Commentok what I'm getting from this guy is that she's being approached by this one guy who keeps thinking that they're a thing and she's trying to get him the message that they're not together. The line 'you must be high' is her way of saying, dude your still in your fantasy, it was just one kiss-one mistake. Nothing more

    General CommentI've always thought that this was basically the hard rock F-U version of I'm Not An Angel. It comes right after that song and the lyrics go: "What were you expecting, another lullaby are you kidding," and Im not an angel is the slowest song on the album. Also, in INAA (weird abbreviation) she says "You're had to resist when you're on your knees beggin me" and in this one she says: "Be a man and get up off your knee."
    Thats my guess about this really awesome song.

    My OpinionIn my opinion, this song is about a girl who isn't looking for love. She had a hook-up with a guy one night, and he thought they had something going on. He's all goo-goo for her (buying her flowers and candy, saying he loves her, etc), but she thinks the slightest of him. "You must be high/ 'cause it was just one kiss." She's saying that he's gotta be living in a fantasy world if he thinks they ever had anything going on. But that's just my opinion.
