"I Need You" as written by and Nicholas Cave....
When you're feeling like a lover
Nothing really matters anymore
I saw you standing there in the supermarket
With your red dressing falling and 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
With your eyes on one, we love the ones we can
Cause nothing really matters when you're standing, standing

I need you, 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 in, falling in
A 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
On the night we wrecked like a train
Purring cars and pouring rain
Never felt right about, 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, I need you

I need you
I need you

Just breathe, just breathe
I need you

    My InterpretationThis song is a perfect expression of the confusion, hopelessness and oppressive desperation of loss.

    You never know when it will hit you: standing in the supermarket, walking round your place, holding hands;
    And you blame yourself, you thought you knew better, so much better;
    And you tell yourself just breathe, just breathe, 'cause nothing really matters;
    And you reach out to those around you, the ones you still can;
    And you say: I need you

    Such a beautiful song, though it pains me to hear it
