Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover Lyrics

 

 

Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover - Sophie B. Hawkins

 

That old dog has chained you up, alright

 

Give you everything you need to live

Inside a twisted cage

Sleep beside an empty rage

 

I had a dream I was your hero

Damn, I wish I was your lover

I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes

Made sure you are smiling and warm

I am everything, tonight, I'll be your mother

I'll do such things to ease your pain

Free your mind, and you won't feel ashamed

 

This monkey can't stand to see you black and blue

 

I give you something sweet each time

You come inside my jungle book

 

Or is it just too good?

 

Don't say you'll stay, 'cause then you go away

 

Damn, I wish I was your lover

I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes

Made sure you are smiling and warm

 

I am everything, tonight, I'll be your mother

I'll do such things to ease your pain

Free your mind, and you won't feel ashamed

 

Shucks, for me there is no other

 

You're the only shoe that fits

I can't imagine I'll grow out of it

 

Damn, I wish I was your lover (oh, yeah)

 

If I was your girl, believe me

 

I'd turn on the Rolling Stones

We could groove along

And feel much better

 

Come, let me in, mm

I could do it forever and ever and ever and ever

 

Give me an hour to kiss you

Walk through Heaven's door I'm sure

We don't need no doctor to feel much better

 

Let me in, oh

 

Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever

 

I sat on a mountainside with peace of mind

 

And I lay by the ocean making love to

Her with visions clear

Walked for days with no one near

 

And I return as chained and bound to you

Damn, I wish I was your lover

I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes

Made sure you are smiling and warm

 

I am everything, tonight, I'll be your mother

 

I'll do such things to ease your pain

 

Free your mind, and you won't feel ashamed

Shucks, for me there is no other

 

You're the only shoe that fits

I can't imagine I'll grow out of it

 

Damn, I wish I was your lover

 

I wanna open up, I'm gonna come inside

I wanna fill you up, I wanna make you cry

 

Damn, I wish I was your lover

 

Gettin' on a subway, and I'm comin' uptown

Damn, I wish I was your lover

 

Standing on the street corner,

 

Waiting for my love to change

 

Damn, I wish I was your lover

And I'm feelin' like a school boy,

Too shy and too young, oh

Damn, I wish I was your lover

 

I wanna open up, I'm gonna come inside

I wanna fill you up, I wanna make you cry

Damn, I wish I was your lover

 

I'm gettin' on my camel, and I'll ride it uptown, oo

Damn, I wish I was your lover

Hanging around this jungle
