Loverman (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

There's a devil waiting outside your door (How much longer) Bucking and braying and paywing the floor Well, 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 asking for more There's a devil waiting outside your door Lover man! Since the world began Forever, Amen Till the 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 everything 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 pryers N is for KNOWING your loverman's going to be the answer to all of yours I'll be your 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 I'm your Loverman! 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'a 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 blind and he's lame and he's dirty and he's poor 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 O 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 take a look at his eyes He wants you, darling, to be his bride There's a devil lying by your side
