Video: Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - I Need You (+ Skeleton Tree Album Stream)

Monday 12th September, 2016 12:08PM

On Friday Nick Cave & The Badseeds unveiled their highly anticipated 16th studio album Skeleton Tree, a striking yet sorrow-filled offering that was completed in the wake of the sudden death of Cave's 15-year-old son Arthur last July. 

The record's release was preceded by a global screening One More Time With Feeling, a documentary created to help Cave avoid discussing the death of his son during the album's promotional run, and the clip for goosebump-inducing single 'I Need You' comes straight from the film. Watch it and then stream the record in full below...






'I Need You' lyrics:

When you're feeling like a lover
Nothing really matters anymore
I saw you standing there in the supermarket
With your red dress falling, your eyes are to the ground

Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters when the one you love is gone

You're still in me, baby
I need you
In my heart, I need you
Cause nothing really matters

I'm standing in the doorway
You're walking 'round my place in your red dress, hair hanging down
Your eyes on one, we love the ones we can
Cause nothing really matters when you're standing, standing

I need you, I need you
Cause nothing really matters

We follow the line of the palms of our hands
You're standing in the supermarket, nothing, holding hands
In your red dress, falling, falling, falling in
The long black car is waiting 'round

I will miss you when you're gone
I'll miss you when you're gone away forever
Cause nothing really matters
I thought I knew better, so much better

And I need you, I need you
Cause nothing really matters

Oh that night we wrecked like a train
The purring cars and the pouring rain
Never felt right about it, never again

Cause nothing really matters
Nothing really matters anymore, not even today
No matter how hard I try
When you're standing in the aisle, and no, baby

Nothing, nothing, nothing

I need, I need you

I need you

In my heart I need you

Just breathe, just breathe

I need you
