I Need You

from Bonfire to Ash


  • I Need You
I’ve been dreaming and the dream never lets me down
The air feels heavy when I awake like the angel won’t come around
Where should I go?
With this heart that won’t keep time on its own
This kick drum needs a bass line
I need you
There’s a river that flows from everywhere
If I listen I can see it electric on the air
You see it all
To you it all makes sense trust is the only option
The one true covenant
I Need You
Need your smile to look forward to bridge the miles, to pull me through
When all is lost in the weeds you have all the light that I need
