Expectation
Tame Impala Lyrics


Everything you ever told me could have been a lie
We may never have been in love
Stuck on thinking that there is always something to lose
Or a hit from above, a hit from above
I don't need what I'm holding on to, I wish I knew but meanwhile

Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking it's toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
'Cause everything you ever told me could have been a lie
We may never have been in love

And then I will escape, I'll never ever have to see
Another disappointed face, no one to please
Every now and then, it feels like, in all of the universe
There is nobody for me
I told myself I wouldn't care, no I wouldn't care
But when she said she'd come 'round
I combed my hair, yes I checked my hair
Oh, meanwhile, meanwhile, meanwhile

Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking it's toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking it's toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking it's toll
Fluctuations is making me feel old
Expectation is taking it's toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul...

Expectation - Lyrics:

Everything you ever told me could have been a lie
We may never have been in love
Stuck on thinking that there is always something to lose
Or a hit from above
Or a hit from above
I don't need what I'm holding
What I'm holding on
I wish I didn't know
But meanwhile...
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Expectation is taking its toll
'Cause everything you ever told me could have been a lie
We may never have been in love
And then I would escape
I'll never, ever have to see another disappointed face
No one to please
Every now and then, it feels like
In all of the universe, there is nobody for me
I told myself I wouldn't care, no I wouldn't care
But when she said she'd come 'round
I combed my hair, yes, I checked my hair
Oh, and meanwhile...
Meanwhile...
Meanwhile...
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuation does make me feel old
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul

Everything you ever told me could have been a lie
We may never have been in love
Stuck on thinking that there is always something to lose
Or a hit from above
Or a hit from above
I don't need what I'm holding
What I'm holding on, I wish I didn't know

But meanwhile...

Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Expectation is taking its toll
'Cause everything you ever told me could have been a lie
We may never have been in love

And then I would escape
I'll never, ever have to see another disappointed face
No one to please
Every now and then, it feels like
In all of the universe, there is nobody for me
I told myself I wouldn't care, no I wouldn't care
But when she said she'd come 'round
I combed my hair, yes I checked my hair

Oh and meanwhile, meanwhile, meanwhile...

Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuation does make me feel old
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul
Expectation is taking its toll
Fluctuations are aching my soul

@So Gloomy Oh absolutely. But I really love Lonerism or Currents the most on acid!!

Damir Zlatkic
