Gimme Love
Joji Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love when I'm gone
When I'm gone
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love when I'm gone
When I'm gone

Swinging out front, let me inside
Playing my song into my sides
It hurts, I can't lie, remember those times
I fought to get out? I want to get out
Those pictures so clear, they fade in my mind
You leavin' me here with ashes and fire
These people don't heal, these people don't feel
These people aren't real so make me this deal

Won't you gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love when I'm gone
When I'm gone
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love
Gimme, gimme love when I'm gone
When I'm gone

Look into your heart and let me know
Do things turn black and grey as they go?
When I'm far too gone, can you show me love?
Give me love
(Ooh)
(Ooh)
(Ooh)
(Ooh)

Caught in a river of records and dreams
Oh, will you keep up with me?
Everyone's looking for someone to hold
But I can't let you go
(Ooh)
(Ooh)




(Ooh)
(Ooh)
