The Longing
by Andrew Osenga

Felt it when I fall to pray
It’s a dark fear, wouldn’t go away
Felt it and I stayed awake
Because I needed you so bad.
Felt it when I saw her eyes
Wished that I could get inside
For a moment there I lost my pride
I just wanted to be known.

Oh, it’s the longing
As the night is set on fire
Oh, it’s the longing
This raging desire
As the night is set on fire

Sunday morning, the truth it stings
Tears are waiting in the wings
As I see your heart for what it is
And the pain is just too much.
Was I naming it a million times
When it caught the corner of my eye
And all my questions rounded high
I had nothing left to say.

Oh, it’s the longing
As the night is set on fire
Oh, it’s the longing
It’s raging desire
As the night is set on fire

I know that these are shadows
Of you calling me to you

Now every room just seems to shrink
Because there’s no place I want to be
I’m stuck here waiting aimlessly
A thousand miles away.
I’m a grown man now, and I don’t know why
All I want to do is cry
Something’s burning deep inside
God, I want to feel it.

Oh, it’s the longing
As the night is set on fire
Oh, it’s the longing
It’s raging desire
As the night is set on fire

"like to hear it? here it go" is from In Living Color - one of the black women - I don't remember her name, but maybe she was a Wayans sister - would sing (I think it was one of the women) and talk up her song beforehand, and then say that line before playing it. they were always deliciously and funnily horrible :) - janet

I'M GONNA UNLOAD ON YOU! - I believe that was a Carrie line, also brought to fruition at Stephanie's house :) - jab

Oh my gosh I had forgotten all about that! Was it Carrie or Melinda? I believe she was yelling, again, at Stephen.
