Don't You Need

I had a dream late last night, the water was running low
And my fields were on fire, burning my sky, my body was moving slow
And when I awoke I tasted the sweat of desire in my mouth
And I realized my heart had abducted my mind
And they were last seen headed south
Now I can’t sleep, I’m so wired, and I find myself screaming out

(CHORUS)
Don’t you need, don’t you want, can’t you taste it when you’re alone
Don’t you cry, don’t you feel, sometimes I wonder if you are real
Don’t you bleed, don’t you need

There’s no quenching the thirst there’s no relief for the hungry at heart
And as far as you’re concerned I’m just a thief entertaining in the dark
But it’s you that holds the cards now that the joker is wild

Don’t you want to lay it down and feel your skin against the ground
Don’t you want to ride the storm and then sleep inside the calm
Don’t you want to get that high, don’t you want to be satisfied
Well if you don’t want it from me, don’t you need

I had a dream late last night, the water was running low
And my fields were on fire, burning my sky
How was I to know that I burn every night in my dreams
And only morning can set me free

(CHORUS)
