Principle on mortgage payment question?

Just bought a house and a little confused on the breakdown of the mortgage payment every month. Say your monthly payment is 1500 and 655 goes to interest and 622 goes to taxes and 223 goes to the principle. (This is somewhat to what is says on my breakdown online) Anyways, I notice that very little goes to the principle which is the actual loan?
Yes, I was just wondering why does so little go to the actual principle.
