Get Back The Longing

Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo

There hasn’t been thunder since I don’t when
We touch but my heart lies still
And I haven’t seen lightning the way it was then
So bright
Behind my closed eyes when you hold me tight
And that ain’t fair to you and it ain’t right

I want to get back the longing
Right all the wronging
Start making sense of this mess that we’re in
I want to get back to kissin you
Catch my breath missing you
Just like I used to when we loved before
Get back the longing
That’s what I’m longing for

How did I get from I do to I can’t
Caught in the traffic of life
And when did the distance, stop me from wishing
On that star
To find my way back here to where you are
Feels so far

I want to get back the longing
Right all the wronging
Start making sense of this mess that we’re in
I want to get back to kissin you
Catch my breath missing you
Just like I used to when we loved before
Get back the longing
That’s what I’m longing for

Slowly, kiss me, help me forget
Take me back to when I had no regrets

I want to get back the longing
The ache and the wanting
Stop the world spinning when I’m in your arms
I want to get back the feeling
Those butterflies reeling inside me
Each time that you walk through the door
Get back the longing
That’s what I’m longing for

To get back the longing
That’s what I’m longing for
