lyrics

WHAT’S WANTING FOR

Don’t know quite how to put this
But it’s pullin’ on me
Like hooks in my flesh pulled
By ropes that I can’t see

And we’re all pullin’ on each other
Like forces of gravity
Think we can do what we please
But we’re not free

And when you’re not here I just miss you
And when you’re here I just miss you more
If skin can’t touch
What’s wanting for

What’s wanting for
What’s wanting for
If skin can’t touch
What’s wanting for

And what I got to say now
Confessin it to you
I’m not so sure this thing
Is ever gonna be through

We talked it out shook hands
Drew the lines and smiled
Bu I think I know deep down
That lines just ain’t my style

And when you’re not here I just miss you
And when you’re here I just miss you more
If skin can’t touch
What’s wanting for

What’s wanting for
What’s wanting for
If skin can’t touch
What’s wanting for

Like magnets and nails
Like flies in a web
Like quicksand
Like an obsession in your head

Like an earworm
Like a black hole
Like a cold hand
Like hot iron in my soul

Not sure how to end this
But I can feel it comin’ out
It tries a man’s faith
I know it’s real beyond doubt

The way desire takes hold
And wears away sanity
Feel like that old preacher
Preachin’ all is vanity

And when you’re not here I just miss you
And when you’re here I just miss you more
If skin can’t touch
What’s wanting for

What’s wanting for
What’s wanting for
If skin can’t touch
What’s wanting for
