Lover you should have come over

“Broken down and hungry for your love
With no way to feed it”

  • Jeff Buckley

Completely describes my feelings right now.



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
Maybe I’m too young
To keep good love from going wrong
But tonight you’re on my mind so
You’ll 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 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 and I’ll burn
Will I ever see your sweet return,
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 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 is the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
But maybe I’m just too young,
To keep good love from going wrong
Oh lover, you should’ve come over, yeah yeah 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 I’ve waited for you
Lover, you should’ve come over
‘Cause it’s not too late

        Definitely. Me too. Have you heard music from his dad? He was a musician who died young too, weird right? He’s good. But Jeff was like, omg so brilliant, so sad. I love his music his voice – and this song. So glad you reminded me of it.

        Jeff Buckley has soul man. Real deep soul that radiates from him when he sings, and it gets deep into you. I also love his version of I know it’s over. I didn’t know that about his dad. What a shame…Sometimes I wonder if people like them simply burnt all the energy and soul faster than others
