Top 20 Songs: Tindersticks - I Know That Loving



Absolutely love this track from tindersticks latest release Across Six Leap Years… Sultry, smokey, the sway, the groove hits on all the right notes.


She sinks inside me 
It's so beautiful
Not hear her calling 
And I would raise myself
To live up to her love 
And not look down on me
Forgiving me again
And I hear her calling
Do you wanna get out of the water
Do you wanna try and carry on 
It gets so low
I get so low 

She sinks inside me
It's so beautiful
Not hear her calling
But it's like a waterfall 
Falling down on me
Forgiving me again
And I know that loving 

Chorus:
Like feet that have never been walked on
I know that
Hands that never held no blame
Can't you see that I guess you're staying
Eyes that have never cried angry tears
It's always the same
A face that never felt that shame
Well that's my heart
It's calling out your name 

She sinks inside me 
There like chemicals
I see the birds fly
And I'd disgust myself 
To be free of that love
Pull myself from under the weight of it all
And I hear her, hear her 

Chorus
I've got to give it up 
I've got to give it up 

It's just that quality of forgiveness 
Forgiveness is what I need
If I could only get out of the water
If I could only get myself clean
I've got to give it up 
I've got to give it up 

Like feet that have never been walked on
I know that
Hands that never held no blame
I'm running on my knees again
Eyes that have never cried angry tears
It's always the same
A face that never felt that shame 

She's standing at the altar
Like feet never walked on
I know that she's waiting there
Like hands never held no blame
If I could only get out of the water
No crying angry
If I could only get out of here
but I've gotta give it up
that felt no shame
I've got to give it up
