Too Much to Ask

  • Waiting here for someone
    Only yesterday we were on the run
    You smile back at me and your face lit up the sun
    Now I'm waiting here for someone

    And oh, love, do you feel this rough?
    Why's it only you I'm thinking of

    My shadow's dancing
    Without you for the first time
    My heart is hoping
    You'll walk right in tonight
    Tell me there are things that you regret
    'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet
    That's all I'm asking
    Is it too much to ask?
    Is it too much to ask?

    Someone's moving outside
    The lights come on down the drive
    I forget you're not here when I close my eyes
    Do you still think of me sometimes?

    And oh, love, watch the sun coming up
    Don't it feel fucked up we're not in love

    My shadow's dancing
    Without you for the first time
    My heart is hoping
    You'll walk right in tonight
    And tell me there are things that you regret
    'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet
    That's all I'm asking
    Is it too much to ask?

    My shadow's dancing
    Without you for the first time
    My heart is hoping
    You'll walk right in tonight
    And tell me there are things that you regret
    'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet

    My shadow's dancing
    Without you for the first time
    My heart is hoping
    You'll walk right in tonight
    And tell me there are things that you regret
    'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet
    That's all I'm asking
    Is it too much to ask?

    That's all I'm asking
    Is it too much to ask?
    That's all I'm asking
    Is it too much to ask? Writer/s: Jamie Scott, Niall Horan
