Lover, You Should've Come Over

Looking out the door I see the rain fall on 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
You 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
Much too blind to see the damage he's done
Yes sometimes a man must awake to find that really he has no-one

So I'll wait for you and I'll burn
And 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 lets the rain in
Burning in the corner is the only one who dreams he had you with him
And my body turns and yearns for a sleep that won't ever come

It's never over my kingdom for a kiss upon the shoulder
It's never over all my riches for his smile when we slept so soft together
It's never over all my blood for the sweetness of his laughter
It's never over he's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever
Oh and maybe I'm just too young
To keep good love from going wrong
Oh lover you should've come over

And 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
Love love love love love love love love love
Oooh lover you should've come over it's not late
