Imelda May – The Longing lyrics
[Verse 1]
My heart is thumpin' inside of my chest
My temple is burnin' and drippin' with sweat
My mind is spinnin' yeah swimmin' around
My tongues dried up like I've been lickin' the ground

[Chorus]
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing

[Verse 2]
The hole in my chest it twists like a knife
Takin' over my body, takin' over my life
I can't think of nothin', no one else gonna do
I'm haunted by the living, yeah, wantin' you

[Chorus]
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you

Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you

[Verse 3]
The moon can move the ocean, could it get me to you?
I got myself the notion that you long for me too
Gonna drag every limb of my body to see
If just one wave can push me closer to thee

[Chorus]
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you

[Verse 4]
My tongue's dried up and it's hangin' down yeah
Pacin' the floor, like I'm a dog on the prowl yeah
Lookin' at the moon and I wanted to howl yeah
Under your spell, want to be under you now

[Chorus]
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing for you
It's the longing
The longing

Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you

[Outro]

Ohhhh
Ohhhhh

Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
Gotta gotta get to you
Gotta get to you
