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 
And maybe I'm too young 
To keep good love from going wrong
But tonight you're on my mind so
(you'll never know)
I'm 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
And 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 oh
Will I ever see your sweet return,
Oh/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 will never 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  Maybe I'm just too young to keep good love
From going wrong 
Oh... lover you should've come over...
'Cause it's not too late...

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'm waiting [I waited] for you
Lover, you should've come over
'Cause it's not too late
