Lover, You Should've Come Over

  • 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
    Maybe I'm too young
    To keep good love from going wrong
    But tonight you're on my mind so
    You'll 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
    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,
    Or, will I ever learn?
    Lover, you should've come over
    'Cause it's not too late.

    Lonely is the room the bed is made
    The open window lets 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 won't ever 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 is the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
    But maybe I'm just too young,
    To keep good love from going wrong
    Oh lover, you should've come over, yeah yeah yes

    I feel too young to hold on
    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 I've waited for you
    Lover, you should've come over
    'Cause it's not too late Writer/s: Jeffery Scott Buckley
