Lover Lover Lover (vom Album: New Skin For The Old Ceremony)

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.

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.

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 some woman smile."

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover...

"Then let me start again," I cried,

"please let me start again,

I want a face that's fair this time,

I want a spirit that is calm."

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover...

"I never never turned aside," he said,

"I never walked away.

It was you who built the temple,

it was you who covered up my face."

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover...

And may the spirit of this song,

may it rise up pure and free.

May it be a shield for you,

a shield against the enemy.

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover...

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover...
