Jeff Buckley - Lover, You've Should Come Over Lyrics


Looking out the door I see the rain
Fall upon the funeral mourners
Parading in a wake of sad relations
As their shoes filled up with water

Maybe I am too young
To keep good love from goin' 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 havin' 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?
Oh, will I ever learn?
Oh, lover, you should've come over, see 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's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
Oh, but maybe I'm just too young to keep good love
From going wrong
Oh, oh, oh, oh oh, oh lover you should've come over

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 well I'm waiting for you
Lover, love, lover, lover, love, lover, love, love, love, love, lover, lover
You should've come over
It's not too late
