Basic Needs

Album: Black Labyrinth (2018)
  • I may not act like I'm torn apart
    But blood don't look deep red when the dark
    Surrounds me
    I may be frozen, numb from the fight
    The pain belongs to me
    But your love surrounds me
    Surrounds me, surrounds me

    I don't feel hunger, I don't need air
    There's blood in my veins 'cause I know you are there
    I don't need shelter, nothing at all
    The reason I'm here
    Don't you know that you're all of my basic needs

    I may be crippled by my mind
    Your silence haunts my head
    And they always find me
    I may be used to feeling this way
    Almost forgot remembering too
    Remind me, remind me, remind me

    I don't feel hunger, I don't need air
    There's blood in my veins 'cause I know you are there
    I don't need shelter, nothing at all
    The reason I'm here
    Don't you know that you're all of my basic needs

    I don't feel hunger, I don't need air
    There's blood in my veins 'cause I know you are there
    I don't need shelter, nothing at all
    The reason I'm here
    Don't you know that you're all of my basic needs
    My basic needs
