Lover Lover Lover Lyrics

I asked my father
I said, "Father, change my name"
The one I'm using now, it's covered up
With fear and filth and cowardice and shame

Ah, but, lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me

He said, "I locked you in this body
I meant it as a kind of trial
You can use it for a weapon
Or to make a woman smile"

Ah, but, lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me

"Then let me start again," I cried
Oh, please let me start again
I want a face that's fair this time
I want a spirit that is calm

Ah, but, lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me

"I never turned aside," I said
Oh, I, I never ever walked away
It was you who built the temple
It was you who covered up my face

Ah, but, lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me

You may come to me in happiness
Or you may come to me in grief
You may come to me in your deepest faith
Or you may come in disbelief

Ah, but, lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me, oh
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me

And may the spirit of this song
May it rise up, pure and free
May it be a shield for all of you
A shield against the enemy

Ah, but, lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me, oh
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
Lover, lover, lover, come back to me
