    Hey Lover

    I’ve been asleep, since we woke yesterday
    And we started throwing, our good times away
    I could do somethin’, really I should
    But change, comes, hard

    Sometimes, oh, it moves like an ice flow
    Jagged and cold. Cruel and dead slow
    This time it hit, faster than lightning 
    And we’re too scared to open our eyes

    Love! Love! 
    Our love, is a voice in the rain sayin’
    “Lover! Hey Lover! Come on Lover 
    Come on, come on, come on …”

    We tried to talk, using, smoke and mirrors
    Tried using sounds only, dogs could hear
    What if we held close, and whispered our way
    through our next, little while

    Love! Love! 
    Our love, is a voice in the rain sayin’
    “Lover! Hey Lover! Come on Lover”

    Come on Lover
    Let’s write all our fears on rice paper
    Set ‘em on fire in the wind
    And just watch ‘em go like it’s nothing
    ‘Cuz it’s nothin’. Fear, is nothin’.
    Ahh, it’s nothin’ like Love

    Love! Love! 
    Our love, is a voice in the rain sayin’
    “Lover! Hey Lover! Come on Lover 
    Come on, Lover …”
