Bonnie RaittLonging In Their Hearts

Let me tell you 'bout a friend of mine He's a short order cook Long on speed, short on spice He reads his customers like a book He's seen this, and he's done that Now he's makin' fried eggs an art But there's one thing he can't fix nohow There's a longing in his heart He's tried for years to work it out At the grill and at his home Well he talks to his friends, he talks to himself He talks the chicken right off the bone Talks to his woman and she understands You know they're always eye to eye She runs the joint, they live out back Small house under a big sky Well even the stars at night agree The sky is falling apart She knows 'cause she can feel it too There's a longing in her heart A longing in her heart Longing in her heart Well now you and me, we're just like them We never wanted to be alone, So we made a pact, sealed with desire, For a happier house and home, Only to find it doens't untie The knot where feelings die: There's a longing deep inside our hearts And no one to tell us why Our friends aren't looking for anything new They wouldn't know where to look Well her, she likes running the joint And he likes being a cook Together they're doing very well They're mighty glad they could But there's a fire burning towards them now Coming from a distant wood And even the stars at night agree That the sky is falling apart We know 'cause we can feel it too There's a longing in our hearts © 2018
