I Know What You Need

key of [C]

Long before you were thirsty
I planted a tree
Beside bitter water
And it made the water sweet
It grew and made the water sweet

Before you ever knew hunger
I planted a seed
You can trust me, darling
I know what you need
I know what you need

You can rest
Your weary head
Upon my breast
I know what you need

And when you close your eyes
I hope you can see
The picture of love I’ve painted
It’s a gift to you from me
A gift to you from me

Deep Natural / Dub Natural (Mighty Sound 2002)

I had nothing to do with that album. I had nothing to do with the material selected, with the artwork on the cover, the imagery. I couldn’t even control the way that I was being presented to the media, as yet another in a long line of American curiosities, like a souvenir from some guy’s trip to America .
