Embrace - Love Is A Basic Need Lyrics




I'm on an island water won't reach
A titanic diamond under the sea
Don't you be frightened I know we're in deep

The root of all evil has flowers it feeds
That grow through the pavement and break the concrete
Only to die there under your feet

And I know everything you want cause it's everything I'm not
And you're everything I'm never gonna be

Only love s a basic need

Like a volcano throws rocks in the sea
Your straight and narrow looks twisted to me
The fruit on its branches is out of my reach

I'm like an alien I only want peace
Drop all your weapons they're useless on me
Like air and shelter your love is a need

And I know everything you want cause it's everything I'm not
And you're everything I'm never gonna be
And I'd give everything I've got if I'd anything you want
but I've everything you're never gonna need

Only love is a basic need

Embrace Love Is A Basic Need Comments
  1. YanZZah

    Very underrated band. Never got the appreciation they deserved way back the time of their emergence onto the music podium. Lovely Track


    A U S T R A L I A

  2. Ady Ingrey

    I’ve been a fan since the beginning, in my humble opinion, they’re the most underrated English band of all time.

  3. U2film

    Masterpiece!!

  4. Rych3rInLyf3

    How is this band not bigger than Coldplay? Or Imagine Dragons the Coldplay of the 2010s?

  5. PerfectPlaylists

    Fab - love it :-)

  6. Somendra Gupta

    Good to listen this song. Iam listening to u guys since 1998. I know the good will come out...

  7. DON'T ACTUALLY BURN THE CHURCH

    I'm on an island water won't reach
    A titanic diamond under the sea
    Don't you be frightened I know we're in deep
    The root of all evil has flowers it feeds
    That grow through the pavement and break the concrete
    Only to die there under your feet
    And I know everything you want cause it's everything I'm not
    And you're everything I'm never gonna be
    Only love s a basic need
    Like a volcano throws rocks in the sea
    Your straight and narrow looks twisted to me
    The fruit on its branches is out of my reach
    I'm like an alien I only want peace
    Drop all your weapons they're useless on me
    Like air and shelter your love is a need
    And I know everything you want cause it's everything I'm not
    And you're everything I'm never gonna be
    And I'd give everything I've got if I'd anything you want
    but I've everything you're never gonna need
    Only love is a basic need

    If they get to The 02 Arena, or Wembley Arena, with this albums tour it will be a very easy yes for me.

  36. Tom Silk

    5min20 onwards.. great. Not there best crafted effort

  37. Sergo sergo

    👍👍👍

  38. Villa Rocker

    These guys always write anthems. What a beautiful song, sung by a beautiful voice. I love their music and wish they could get more recognition for their brilliant songs.

  39. Jill Hayling

    Just amazing 🎶

  40. Deyan Delchev

    And what are you guys doing to obtain this raw basic need since the only one source of that is Jesus Christ?

    DeadShrew

    Deyan Delchev Welcome to the church of Embrace

  41. Marcelo B

    Great!!

  42. BlankTV

    Embrace is already a band...a better band. These guys should change their name before they become the "bad Embrace."

    RKUK Media

    The UK Embrace have been active since 1990, so it's a bit late to make such an irrelevant point, and they sure ain't the only band with the same name as an other, regardless of how irrelevant the other are

  43. marty gibbo

    Epic...

  44. king bear

    Seems a step back from the last album which sounded fresh.this is a bit dull.

    king bear

    Jeff McNamara doubt i'l buy the album.

    Marcus Holley

    Jeff McNamara, if you're so disappointed in their new material why do you keep watching the videos and flooding every comments section with your opinions. You're entitled to your opinion but you don't have to keep banging on about it. Yes, the new album certainly won't be their best album but I still think it will be good, and although their last album was pretty good it wasn't in the same league as The Good Will Out!

    Colin Lynch

    Well I like it ....sounds great guys.

    CaptainOatwright

    Marcus Holley Maybe coz he wants to give the feedback, hoping that the band will rediscover their innovative streak that was evident on 'Embrace'. I tend to agree this sounds good but it's a retread (excuse the pun) and you got to wonder where do they go from here?

  45. nigel richardson

    BRIGHOUSE LADS AT THERE BEST

  46. John Williams

    Embrace, Embrace.

  47. Carl lowndes

    This band are unbeatable. Alot different from last album but still amazing just get better and better.
    Can't wait to see them live again!!🎸🎹🎶🎤

  48. Rodolfo Espinosa

    La estaba esperando desde hace mucho , va a hacer una de mis preferidas de este disco

    Jav Ag

    Me encantó este disco, paracticamente todas me gustaron y es raro hoy dia, si me gustan 2 canciones de los discos que sacan los grupos hoy, ya es mucho. Y estos es como que volvieron al clasico estilo de finales de lo 90s que fue su mejor epoca y retornaron a esa escencia. Muy bueno !

  49. Christopher sykes

    Great track

  50. Natalia Zygadlo

    I LOVE THIS!!! Heard on the radio on October and was waiting so long time for it!!!

  51. Paul Castledine
