Like a desert needs rain
Like a town needs a name
I need your love
Like a drifter needs a room
I need your love

Like a rhythm unbroken
Like drums in the night
Like sweet soul music
Like sunlight
I need your love

Like coming home
when you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising
Needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge
Of a bitter enemy
I need your love

Like the heat needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

Like thunder needs rain
Like the preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a blindman's cane
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love

Like a fighter's rage
His dreams in a cage
Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

U2 (1988)
