You want the sun and moon, I give the galaxy
You want to call the tune, I write a symphony
You want someone to lean upon, I jump to be your crutch
Oh but baby, this time you ask too much.

You want to fan the flame, I give you oxygen
You want to play the game, I know you've already won
You want your tears to dissipate, I've got the soothing touch
Oh but baby, this time you ask too much.

If you come up with a statistic, that's realistic, a logistic, I can comply;
But the extremes of your dreams and your schemes
Beyond my limited ability to satisfy

You want me to believe you, I have full confidence
You want me to forgeeve you, I give another chance
You want a love for a lifetime, well I'm bended knee and such
Oh but baby, this time you ask too much.

If you come up with a statistic, that's realistic, a logistic, I can comply;
But the extremes of your dreams and your schemes
Beyond my limited ability to satisfy
You aim too high

You want me to believe you, I have full confidence
You want me to forgeeve you, I give just one more chance
You want a love for a lifetime, well I'm bended knee and such
Oh but baby, this time you ask too much.
Oh but baby, this time you ask too much.
Oh but baby, this time you ask too much.
