If I can’t see you tomorrow Then I can’t see you again ‘Cause I know I could never give you up if I wanted to So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you If I can’t kiss you on Friday Then I can’t kiss you tonight ‘Cause I know if I kissed you I would always stay untrue So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you If I can’t have you forever Then I can’t see you tonight ‘Cause I know I could never let you go to someone new So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you If I can’t have you If I can’t have you If I can’t have you

Now that I know Why did I doubt you I let you go Now I'm without you Thought I was cool Imagination I was the fool Fell to temptation But you won't see me cry 'Cause its no good Since you said goodbye And now honey I gotta stop Gotta start pickin' up Gotta pull myself together Honey, I'm breakin' up Now that we ain't makin' up Just gotta pull myself together I was so sure It wouldn't upset me So I closed the door Why did you let me I lost control Out for sensation I'm in the cold Sad situation I try hard not to say It hurt so bad Since you went away Baby I want you Baby I need you But you won't see me cry 'Cause its no good Since you said goodbye

THE YEARNING’s debut full-length will be here really soon, and to whet our appetites, Joe Moore and his gang are giving us a song as an advance digital single; “If I Can’t Have You”. The song is a summary of many of the constants that have caught our attention up to now: delicious melodies with fifties tendencies, prodigious productions along the lines of the masters like Phil Spector, Jack Nietzsche and Burt Bacharach, and lyrics obsessed with the two sides of sentimental relationships. And they do it again, with that opening drum line that’s so characteristic, and those castanets adorned with heavenly choruses, evoking some of the best girl groups in history, like THE RONETTES and THE VELVELETTES. An absolute delicacy.

As a gift with this release, a version of THE NOLANS’ “Gotta Pull Myself Together”, exclusive for this digital single, in which Maddie Dobie’s voice once again dazzles us in that highly addictive chorus, while the guitar arrangement takes us to the limit. It’s a teaser that heightens, if it is even possible, our impatience to get our hands on this first album that has us so excited, and that we’ve been dreaming about so much.
