Lover You Should've Come Over - Jeff Buckley

 

Looking out the door I see the rain

Fall upon the funeral mourners

 

Parading in a wake of sad relations

As their shoes fill up with water

 

And maybe I'm too young to

Keep good love from going wrong

 

But tonight you're on my mind so you never know

 

Broken down and hungry for your love

With no way to feed it

 

Where are you tonight

Child you know how much I need it

 

Too young to hold on

And too old to just break free and run

 

Sometimes a man gets carried away

 

When he feels like he should be having his fun

 

And much too blind to see the damage he's done

 

Sometimes a man must awake to find that really

He has no-one

So I'll wait for you and I'll burn

 

Will I ever see your sweet return

Oh will I ever learn

Oh lover you should've come over

 

Cause it's not too late

 

Lonely is the room the bed is made

The open window let's the rain in

 

Burning in the corner is

The only one who dreams he had you with him

 

My body turns and yearns

For a sleep that will never come

It's never over

My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder

 

It's never over

All my riches for her smiles

When I slept so soft against her

 

It's never over

All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter

 

It's never over

She's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever

 

Well maybe I'm just too young

 

To keep good love from going wrong

 

Oh lover you should've come over

 

Cause it's not too late

 

Well I feel too young to hold on

 

And I'm much too old to break free and run

 

Too deaf dumb and blind to see the damage I've done

Sweet lover you should've come over

 

Oh love well I'm waiting for you

 

Lover you should've come over

 

Cause it's not too late
