Linger Lyrics - Cranberries

Review The Song (29)

If you, if you could return, don't let it burn, don't let it fade.

I'm sure I'm not being rude, but it's just your attitude,
It's tearing me apart, It's ruining what.

I swore I would be true, and honey, so did you.
So why were you holding her hand? Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time? Was it just a game to you?

But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you.
I thought nothing could go wrong,
But I was wrong. I was wrong.
If you, if you could get by, trying not to lie,
Things wouldn't be so confused and I wouldn't feel so used,
But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

And I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

mmm.. Great, but??? | Reviewer: Maria | 4/9/13

why does the crappy songs about shitty relationships are the ones that people most relate to.. that I find kinda sad... i love her voice though, but what a load of crap to suffer for someone else! Move on.. grow some balls.

This song I dedicate to my wife, 'Y'. May our for each linger a life time. The most soothing song I have ever heard. It takes you back to a quiet place where you can reminisce and love to it's fullest

I think the song was written about a poo that wouldn't flush because it was massive. The poo stank and the smell lingered giving the title of linger. This is the most plausible meaning of this song so I giggle while singing along.

love | Reviewer: anna | 8/30/10

i remember this song way back in the 90s when it first came out when i was a teenager. i have always loved this song, it takes me back to a time when i met the love of my life. a person who was my "the one that got away", this song was so me back then and is so me today! i met up with him in recent years and became close with him again, an even though we are both married to other people, we still care for one another very much. an this is my song to him, he will never leave me my heart no matter what happens.

This song is beautiful but I guess you don't know a part of the story of this song. Cranberries at the beginning did not have the singer. She was applying in fact to be part of the group, and the other members asked her to write a song and sing it to be part of the team. And the song she wrote was this, Linger. I would have accepted her too in any band if she wrote something as beautifull as that. ^_^

Thx.. | Reviewer: Gekti | 8/27/09

i absolutly love this song i have heard it way before the movie click came out and i guess never really never payd attention but when i was watching click i started listining to it and i actually started was like she was singing my exact feelings and now i just listen to it over and over again when im felling sad it always cheers me up the most amazing time it came on me and my boyfriend were laying down he had his head on my chest and i started singing it and when it was over he looked at me his eyes were watering and he told me "wow you sound alot like her that was beautiful i love you so much"im pretty sure that made me love the song even more

?? | Reviewer: kate | 11/16/08

I really like this song..
but anyway, I'm sure you'll never see this, but lucrecia mora are you stupid?
"I just wanted be with you?" That's not even English why the hell would those be the correct lyrics??

*sigh* | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/10/08

Ah, this song pertains to me all too much.
It is beautiful.
And, sadly, it is beautiful in the way in which it relates to me.

I hope that, by playing this song on nonstop repeat, he will come back. Just thinking that someone has been through the same thing (although there is no other girl, the other lyrics pertain the same) gives me hope and doesn't make me feel so bad. Listening makes me feel better...but sad. I will never stop thinking of him.

beautiful | Reviewer: Leanne | 9/6/08

If anyone wants to hear someone who sings quite similar to the lead singer, listen to Cat Power. She was the artist of the final song in the movie Juno. I thought it was the same person for a second.. But beautiful artists and singers nonetheless.

nah... well... but ok | Reviewer: bbc | 4/17/08

i didn't care for this song way back when. i was kinda in a more dark phase i guess. prolly glued to pearl jam's "garden" type stuff and nirvana... not nirvana. but through the years, and after dreams, zombie, and much of "no need to argue", i've discovered how good the cranberries really were and still are... after all, these songs never go away. they're always there to be bought, right next to something "new" even. time should help your music collection to grow, but why move at a snail's pace? discover the past gems while moving forward... and you'll uncover the real meaning of music. and that is... whatever you feel it is. (as for letting it linger... being left to feel tortured and broken to and through many, many points of overkill... the real question becomes... why should you allow it to linger? love doesn't put love through hell. if you are being put through hell loving someone, and that someone is always giving the impression that they just don't give a damn... then you owe it to yourself, your heart, and your beautiful ability to love to give up on a stone. move on. and never allow that kinda misery and anguish to linger in you. after all, there's never enough beautiful people in the world. preserve your beauty. (and, in time, i'm sure you'll be...) hmmm... not all is for me to say. after all, i'm just one opinion.
