"Too Long" as written by Anthony Wayne Moore, Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel De Homem-christo....
It's been much too long, I feel it coming on
The feeling is getting strong
It's been much too long, I feel it coming on
The feeling is in my bones

Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it
Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it

At last the long wait is over
the weight is off my shoulder
I'm taking all control
My mind is set so free

I'm where I want to be
To get the best of me

Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it
Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it

I see, you feel the way I do, the feeling all so true
the good feelings coming through
My mind is set so free
I'm where I want to be, to get the best of me

Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it
Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it

It's been much too long, I feel it coming on
The feeling is getting strong
It's been much too long, I feel it coming on
The feeling is in my bones

Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it
Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it

At last the long wait is over
the weight is off my shoulder
I'm taking all control yeah
My mind is set so free
I'm where I want to be
To get the best of me

Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it
Too long, can you feel it, too long, oh can you feel it

You know you need it, I need it too
you know you need it, it's good for you
We're gonna move
You know you need it, I need it too
you know you need it

It's good for you

    General CommentThe song can also be interpreted as 'it's been too long since you/i/we had a chance to let go and release all that energy and relax and party (which is what ecstasy is all about anyway) and in doing so mirrors the first song on the albumn "One More Time"

    It's about coming up on ecstasy and how we don't get to do it often enough and when we finally get to do it it's totally awesome.

    In the background you can hear the female voice saying 'come on up'. "up" meaning high.

    It's good to see a few other people realised the song was about this. If you've never taken pills you wouldn't know.

    General CommentThe title of this song is a pun.

    It's 10 minutes long, so it really is too long.

    General CommentI'll admit, most daft punk songs do not have any underlying meaning, but I don't care about that. They're great fun to listen to.

    However, I do believe this song has a meaning. This song reminds me of myself, at the moment. For ages I've had this great huge to do list about various habits and problems I have, and things I want to have. I've just got out of school for the biggest holiday EVER, and I am finally free to do what I want to do without having to worry about exams and/or studying - I can finally let myself worry about my own problems and put my life in order (eg. FINALLY losing some weight, getting a good wardrobe, choosing and getting a decent haircut for the first time, etc). It might not be this songs meaning, but that's what this song reminds me of.

    Also, yes - the name is a sort of pun on the song itself, as this song is the longest on the album.

    General Comment90% sure this is about getting laid after a long dry spell. plus the reference to both "it" being too long, and the song itself being 10min.

    General CommentUp until now, I thought Bohemian Rhap. by Queen (real long, not sure exact time) and Konstantine by Something Corporate(9:35) was about as long as they come.
    Funny song.

    General CommentFor me it's the moments when you'r with your girlfriend, if you pay attention it's like that, like the moment you hate.

    General CommentI love how much people over analyze Daft Punk, People just don't want to believe that Daft Punk is that simple of a group, but they are, which to me is a good thing, I don't think any Daft PUnk songs have a meaning, they just are, kinda like jesus,

    Daft Punk = French Techno Jesus
