Lover, You Should've Come Over

This song is by Jeff Buckley and appears on the album Grace (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
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, love
And I'll burn
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
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've 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

Oh, but maybe I'm just too young
To keep good love from going wrong

Oh, lover, you should've come over

Yes, I feel too young to hold on
And much to 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've waited for you

Lover, you should've come over
'Cause it's not too late
