The Temper Trap Need Your Love Lyrics

Last updated: 05/05/2012 11:00:00 AM

The road is pulling me into her open where
And for a moment I escape and I forget
The silhouettes behind the dust clouds call me friend
But even fools know here they're far a few between
She has abandoned me on highways and desert plates
Of lonely creatures singing for the summer rain
And at the end of all your knees fall down to me
Yeah it's something in you always ask for someone real

Oh I need your love, I need your love,
I need you now, I need you
Oh I need your love, I need your love,
I need you now, I need you

She is my salvation in the dark
But at night with lips of honey calls the devil's heart
And I am a war of flesh and heart that's left undone
Between the person that I was and have become

Oh I need your love, I need your love,
I need you now, I need you
Oh I need your love, I need your love,
I need you now, I need you
I need your love

Oh I need your love, I need your love,
I need you now, I need you
Oh I need your love, I need your love,
I need you now, I need you

There's no resting in my heart
There's no resting in my heart
There's no resting now

  • Released at the end of 2008, the Temper Trap's simultaneously epic and fragile Sweet Disposition single peaked inside the UK Top 10, was covered by Ellie Goulding in the Radio 1 Live Lounge and cropped up on nearly every TV ident going (from a Sky Sports advert to Channel 4's V Festival coverage to soundtracking a montage sequence on the Big Brother 10 finale). Its ubiquity overshadowed most of the follow-up singles from their debut album, Conditions, but helped the album sell over half a million worldwide, quite an achievement for a new guitar band. Anyway, that's all in the past and with Need Your Love – the first single from their self-titled follow-up and premiered here exclusively – they've obviously decided to ditch the slow burn anthems for something more immediate, and it suits them. Over big squelchy synths and pounding drums, Need Your Love is a festival-ready anthem that seems joyful on the surface but is about the painful disintegration of singer Dougy Mandagi's relationship, it's sky high chorus sure to be fairly ubiquitous come the summer. more visiting www.guardian.co.uk
