"Need To" is a song written and recorded by the American nu metal band Korn for their self-titled debut album. It was released as the album's second single in April 1995.

Music and structure[edit]

The song features elements of an older Korn song, "Alive", which was found on their demo tape, Neidermayer's Mind. "Alive" was eventually reworked and re-recorded for the band's sixth studio album, Take a Look in the Mirror.


"'Need To' is about being in a relationship with someone you love so much but you are too scared to get close to them because you're paranoid that they may stop loving you.

You pull me closer, I push you away,
You tell me it's okay, I can't help but feel the pain.

I was use to being used by people I loved and any future relationship was going to feel the same. Every time I thought I was getting too close, I would push her away." – Jonathan Davis
