Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover
by Sophie B. Hawkins



That old dog has chained you up alright
Give you everything you need
To live inside a twisted cage
Sleep beside an empty rage
I had a dream I was your hero

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your Mother I will
Do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed

Open up on the inside gonna fill you up, gonna make you cry

This monkey can't stand to see you black and blue
Give you something sweet each time you
Come inside my jungle book
What is it just too good
Don't say you'll stay
cause then you go away

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your Mother I will
Do such thing to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed

Shucks, for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn, I wish I was your lover

If I was your girl believe me
I;d turn on the rolling stones
We could groove along and feel much better
I could do it forever and ever
Give me and hour to kiss you
Walk through heavens door I'm sure
We don;t need no doctor to feel much better
Let me in
Forever and ever and ever and ever

I sat on a mountainside with peace of mind
I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear
walked for days with no one near
ans I return as chained and bound to you

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your Mother I will
Do such things to ease your pain
Free you mind and you won't feel ashamed
Shucks, For me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn, I wish I was your lover

Just open up I'm gonna come inside I wanna fill you up I wanna make you cry
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Gettin' on the subway and I'm Comin' uptown
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Standing on a street corner waiting for my love to change
(Damn I wish I was your love)
Feeling like a school boy, to shy and too young
(Damn, I wish I was your lover)
Open up I wanna come inside I wanna fill you up I wanna make you cry
(Damn, I wish I was your lover)
Gettin' on my camel and I'll ride it uptown
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Hanging around this jungle, Wishing that this
