Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Loverman

rate me

There's a devil waiting outside your door (How much longer?)

There's a devil waiting outside your door

It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor

And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls

There's a devil waiting outside your door

He's weak with evil and broken by the world

He's shouting your name and he's asking for more

There's a devil waiting outside your door

Loverman!

Since the world began

Forever, amen

Till end of time

Take off that dress

I'm coming down

I'm your loverman

Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

L is for LOVE, baby

O is for ONLY you that I do

V is for loving VIRTUALLY all that you are

E is for loving almost EVERYTHING that you do

R is for RAPE me

M is for MURDER me

A is for ANSWERING all of my prayers

N is for KNOWING your loverman's going to

be the answer to all of yours

Loverman!

Till the bitter end

While empires burn down

Forever and ever and ever and ever amen

I'm your loverman

So help me, baby

So help me

Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

I'll be your loverman!

There's a devil crawling along your floor

There's a devil crawling along your floor

With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door

With his straining sex in his jumping paw

There's a devil crawling along your floor

And he's old and he's stupid and

he's hungry and he's sore

And he's lame and he's blind

and he's dirty and he's poor

Give him more

There's a devil crawling along your floor

Loverman!

Here I stand

Forever, amen

Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

Forgive me, baby

My hands are tied

And I got no choice

No, I got no choice at all

I'll say it again

L is for LOVE, baby

O is for OH yes I do

V is for VIRTUE, so I ain't gonna hurt you

E is for EVEN if you want me to

R is for RENDER unto me, baby

M is for that which is MINE

A is for ANY old how, darling

N is for ANY old time

I'll be your loverman!

I got a masterplan

To take off your dress

And be your man

Seize the throne

Seize the mantle

Seize the crown

Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

I'm your loverman!

There's a devil lying by your side

You might think he's asleep

but look at his eyes

He wants you, baby, to be his bride

There's a devil lying by your side

Loverman! Loverman!
