Lover, You Should've Come Over

(Jeff Buckley).
Ce morceau fait partit de l'album Grace (parût en Août 1994).

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'll never know)

I'm 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, 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 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 sleep 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

Maybe I'm just too young
To keep good love from going wrong

Lover you should've come over...

I feel too young to hold on
And 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
'Cause it's not too late
