Lyrics[edit | edit source]

JI=James Iha, NG=Nina Gordon (of Veruca Salt), J+N=both.

JI: You should know that I love you
     We should love like lovers do
     And I can't help but fall for you
     Ah honey I'm just a fool
     Now you know

NG: Darling, I'll never be true
     You see, for so long I was blue
JI: (I'm not the only one)
NG: And if I hurt, then you will, too
     Ah honey I always lose
     Now you know

J+N: Lover, when will you?
JI: I'm so afraid that no one cares
J+N: Lover, can't find you
JI: I swear to God don't leave me here
J+N: Now you know

J+N: Oh, you know that it can't be
     But no one else here really means
JI: (Anything to me)
J+N: If you hurt inside
     If you confide in me again

NG: Since you ran away
JI: Hold me now, tell me how
     Love is ours

J+N: Lover, when will you?
     I'm so afraid that noone cares
     Lover, can't find you
     And no one knows what brings us here
JI: Hold me now
NG: Hold me now
JI: Tell me how
J+N: Love is ours
