  • I used to shout
    Across the room to you
    And you'd come dancin'
    Like a fool
    Shuffle step
    You funky mother
    Come to me
    All warm as covers

    Rest with me
    My lovely brother
    For you see
    There is no other
    Memory so sad and sweet
    I'll see you soon
    Save me a seat

    Well I'm cryin'
    Now my lovely man
    Yes I'm cryin'
    Now and no one can
    Ever fill the
    The hole you left my man
    I'll see you later
    My lovely man if I can

    In my room
    I'm all alone
    Waiting for you
    To get home

    Listen to Roberta Flack
    But I know you won't come back

    Well I'm cryin'
    Now my lovely man
    I'll see you later
    My lovely man if I can

    Just in case
    You never knew
    I miss you slim
    I love you too
    See my heart
    It's black and blue
    When I die
    I will find you

    Well I'm cryin'
    Now my lovely man
    Yes I'm cryin'
    Now and no one can
    Ever fill the
    The hole you left my man
    I'll see you later
    My lovely man if I can Writer/s: Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, John Anthony Frusciante, Michael Balzary

  • Jeff from Austin, TxAlways one of my favorite songs on BSSM.
  • Nick from Ellicott City, MdAnthony seems to speak about the irreplaceable attitude and friend of Slovak. He also calls him by one of his many nicknames, slim.
  • Guy from Tel Aviv, IsraelHillel Slovak was born in israel and moved to United States at the age of 3.
  • John from Perth, AustraliaThis is my one of favorite songs of an excelent album. The guitar and bass riffs just have so much feeling and intensity, the vocals are so strong and full of passion, all complimented by some awsome fills by Chad Smith. But all that is put in the background by one of the best guitar solos ever. And it also fits so well into the building momentum of the song
  • Mash from Melbourne, AustraliaI love this song. It's one of my favourites
