Radiohead – All I Need

lyrics

i’m the next act
waiting in the wings
i’m an animal
trapped in your hot car
i’m all the days
that you choose to ignore
you are all i need
you are all i need
i’m in the middle of the picture
lying in the leaves
i am a moth
who just wants to share your light
i’m just an insect
trying to get out of the night
we only stick like glue
because there are no others
you are all i need
you are all i need
i’m in the middle of the picture
lying in the leaves
it’s all right
it’s all wrong
it’s all right
it’s all wrong
it’s all right
it’s all wrong
it’s all right

Available on: In Rainbows

Notes:

‘All I Need’ was a long-time contender for Radiohead’s seventh album ‘In Rainbows’ (2007). This song appeared on Radiohead’s studio blackboard, of which a picture was posted on September 30th 2005.

“Blackboard filling up with ideas. lots of things happening all over the studio at once.. which i always like.. although i keep having to remind myself to sit down occasionally. (…) so now we have.. lots of loose ends. or starts. two weeks sketching things. chipping away at structures. making polyphonic sweeps. mountains of words. the blackboard is filling up.”

The song debuted at Radiohead’s show at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. Check FineFineMusic.com for a video of a performance of All I Need at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, The Netherlands [August 28th 2006].
