Don’t You Need- Melissa Etheridge

Don’t You Need- Melissa Etheridge

This song is not dedicated to anybody. I’m not longing for anybody. I just have been singing this song all week long for no reason. What I love about this song is the intensity. To me this is one of the best songs. Yeah, I’m showing my age here but that’s OK. I needed to hear it again.

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 on 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

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 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

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 could set me free
