lyrics

lover, come quickly
I'm falling apart at the seams
I've seen things you just wouldn't believe
lover come, lover come, lover come

lover come quickly, I need you so badly
to bring an end to this world and its madness
oh, lover come, lover come, lover come quickly

"shut up and wait
and let this moment take effect
shut up and wait
or you may never see my face again," she said

cyanide, maybe a gun, swan dive off a parking garage
sleeping pills and alcohol, crash a car, explode a bomb
so many ways, so many ways, so many ways, so many ways,
to say I need you
so many ways, so many ways, so many ways, so many ways,
to say

"shut up and wait
and let this moment take effect
shut up and wait
or you may never see my face again," she said
