Lover, You Should've Come Over

By Jeff Buckley

From the album Grace

D           Csus2  Em  

Looking out the door

                             Csus2   Em   
I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners

Parading in a wake of sad relations

                    Csus2   Em    
As their shoes fill up with water

C#m7dim5                     F#aug         F#aug/E
           And maybe I'm too young

   Bm          (Dsus4 D) D/A         G6
To keep good love from going wrong

       D                  Csus2   Em
But tonight, you're on my mind so     You'll never know

I'm broken down and hungry for your love

       Csus2    Em
With no way to feed it

Where are you tonight?

                   Csus2   Em
Child you know how much I need it.

C#m7dim5                     F#aug       F#aug/E
           Too young to hold on

        Bm  (Dsus4 D) D/A            G6      F#
And too old to just break free and run

Bm                      Em7*
   Sometimes a man gets carried away,

        Bm                                 Em7*
When he feels like he should be having his fun

             Bm                            Em7*
And much too blind to see the damage he's done

Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,

       Em        Fdim
He has    no-one...

D/F#                      Gm6
      So I'll wait for you...And I'll burn

A6                               G6
      Oh will I ever see your sweet return?

      Oh, will I ever learn?

   Cmaj7/E    D6     Aadd9/C#   Aadd9/B Aadd9 Aadd9/F#  Em  Emadd9  Em7
      Oh,     oh,     oh, lover, you should've come over

                    D           Csus2   Em
'Cause it's not too late.

Lonely is the room, the bed is made

                Csus2    Em
The open window lets the rain in

Burning in the corner is the only one 

              Csus2    Em
who dreams he had you with him

C#m7dim5            F#aug  F#aug/E      Bm   (Dsus4 D)
          My body turns and yearns for a sleep

     D/A        G6
That won't ever come

G#dim      D/A
It's never over,

                 D     Csus2    Em     [Emadd9  Em7  Em]
My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder

It's never over, all my riches for her smiles

       D        Csus2   Em        [Emadd9  Em7]
When I slept so soft against her...

Em         D/A
It's never over,

                     D         Csus2   Em      [Emadd9  Em7]
All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter

Em         D/A
It's never over, she's the tear

             D       Csus2   Em   [Emadd9  Em7]
That hangs inside my soul forever

C#m7dim5                       F#aug    F#aug/E
           Maybe I'm just too young

   Bm     (Dsus4 D)  D/A        G      Em/G 
To keep good love from going wrong 

SOLO: D/F#  Gm6  A6  G6  Aadd9/C#  

Cmaj7/E  D6  Aadd9/C# Aadd9/B Aadd9 Aadd9?F#    Em   [Emadd9  Em7]
Oh.......Oh..Oh........Lover you should've come over...

D/F#                     Gm6
(I feel too young to hold on

    A6                             G6
I'm much too hold to break free and run

Too deef, dumb and blind

                  Cmaj7/E    D6
To see the damage I've done

     Aadd9/C#  Aadd9/B Aadd9 Aadd9/F#  Em  [Emadd9  Em7  Em] 
Sweeeeet looover, you should've come over

Oh, love I'm waiting for you

Lover, you should've come over

                   D        Csus2  Emadd9
Cause it's not too late
