Dont You Need  Melissa Etheridge



------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Em7]I had a dream [C(9]late last night
[Em7]The water was running low[C(9]
and my [Em7]fields were on fire
[C(9]burning my sky.
[Em7]My body was moving slow [C(9]
[B7]and when I awoke I tasted the sweat
of de[A7]sire on my mouth.  [Em7]And I
realized my hear[C(9]t had abducted my mind[Em7]
and they were last seen headed[C(9] south.
Now I[B7] can't sleep, I'm so wired,
and I fin[A7]d myself screaming out
Baug Em7 D
Don't you need? Don't you want?

Can't you [C(9]taste it when you're alone?

Don't you [Em7]cry?  Don't you [D]feel?
Sometimes I [C(9]wonder if you are real.
Don't you bleed?[B7]  Don't you need?
(instrumental 3 full bars, lyrics on 4th)
[Em7]        [C(9]         [Em7]         [C(9]           
There's no [Em7]quenching of thirst

[C(9]there's no relief [Em7]for the hungry at hear[C(9]t

[Em7]And as far as you're concerned[C(9] I'm just a thief
[Em7]entertaining in the dark.[C(9]
Bu[B7]t it's you that holds the cards
Now[A7] that the joker is wild.
Baug Em7 D
Don't you need? Don't you want

Can't you [C(9]taste it when you're alone?

Don't you [Em7]cry?  Don't you [D]feel?
Sometimes I [C(9]wonder if you are real.
Don't you bleed[B7]?  [A7]Don't you need?[C(9]
[D]Don't you want to lay it down
[C(9]and feel your skin against the ground?
[D]Don't you want to ride the [C(9]storm
and then sleep inside the calm?

[D]Don't you want to get that high?

[C/E]Don't you wanna be satis[D/F#]fied?
Well, if you don't get that from [Cmaj7]me--
[B7]Don't you [Em7]need?
(instrumental 3 full bars)
[Cmaj7]         [Em7]       [Cmaj7]                     
[Em7]I had a dream [C(9]late last night

[Em7]The water was running low[C(9]

and my [Em7]fields were on fire,
[C(9]burning my sky. [Em7] How was I to kno[C(9]w
tha[B7]t I burn every night in my dreams
and only [A7]morning can set me free....
(alternate bars of Em7 and C(9) to fade)
