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 can set me free

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?
