Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover
Sophie B. Hawkins Lyrics


That old dog has chained you up alright
Give you everything you need to live inside a twisted cage
Sleep beside an empty rage
I had a dream I was your hero

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed
Oh, oh
Open up, I'm gonna get inside
I'm gonna fill you up, gonna make you cry

This monkey can't stand to see you black and blue
I give you something sweet each time you
Come inside my jungle book
What is it just too good?
Don't say you'll stay
'Cause then you'll go away

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed
Shucks, for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn, I wish I was your lover
(Yeah)

If I was your girl, believe me
I'd turn on the Rolling Stones
We could groove along and feel much better
Let me in
I could do it forever and ever and ever and ever
Give me an hour to kiss you
Walk through heaven's door I'm sure
We don't need no doctor to feel much better
Let me in, oh
Forever and ever and ever and ever

I sat on the mountainside with peace of mind
And I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear
Walked for days with no one near
And I return as chained and bound to you

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed
Shucks, for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn, I wish I was your lover

I wanna open up, I wanna come inside
I wanna fill you up, I wanna make you cry
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Getting on a subway
And I'm coming uptown
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Standing on the street corner
Waiting for my luck to change
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Feeling like a schoolboy
Too shy and too young, oh
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Tryna open up, I wanna come inside
I wanna fill you up, I wanna make you cry
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Getting on my camel
Gonna ride it uptown, ooh
Damn, I wish I was your lover

[Verse 1]
That old dog has chained you up alright.
Give you everything you need,
to live inside a twisted cage.
Sleep beside an empty rage.
•••
I had a dream, I was your hero!!!
Damn!!
I wish I was your lover.
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smilin' and warm.
I am everything,
tonight I'll be your mother.
I'll do such things to ease your pain,
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed.
••• •••
oh. - oh, oh.
“Open up on the inside, gonna fill you up, gonna make you cry (cry, cry)”

[Verse 2]
This monkey can't stand to see you
black and blue.
I give you somethin' sweet each time
You come inside my jungle book.
What is it just too good?
•••
Don't say you'll stay,
‘cause then you go away!
Damn!!
I wish I was your lover.
I'll rock you till the daylight comes.
Make sure you are smilin' and warm.
I am everything,
tonight I'll be your mother.
I'll do such things to ease your pain.
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed…
Shucks,
for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits.
I can't imagine, I'll grow out of it
Damn,
….I wish I was your lover

Makin' love to her, with visions clear
Walked the days with no one near.

And I return
as chained and bound to you!
Damn!!
I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smilin' and warm
Damn, I wish I was your lover

Just open up I'm gonna come inside
I wanna fill you up I wanna make you cry
Gettin' on the subway and I'm comin' uptown
(Damn, I wish I was your lover)
Standin' on a street corner waitin' for my love to change
(Damn, I wish I was your lover)
Feelin' like a school boy, too shy and too young

Once upon a time, I recorded this song on a blank cassette tape and mailed it to my love, with no name. He guessed it was me and said that he hoped it was. For 30 years now he is and always will be my sweetest love, my best friend, my husband and soulmate and of course my lover.

Your cool! My gf's don't like me and I'm single. They don't deserve me jumping off a two story building for a beer 🍻 unscathed. They hate me cause i am the demon. Girls offf

Michelle love will never die like rock 💪like a message in the bottle

aww the sweetest!
I'd always dreamed of such a hookup.
E.G. My grandmother was a switchboard operator and my grandfather apparently chatted her up on the phonelines.
I can't imagine that could be possible today; if it wasn't on it's face harassment I'd be too petrified of harassment that I'd ever consider it.
Probably for the best, right? I mean, no CS agent needs a caller hitting on them?
OTOH I was a CS agent myself and did have some female callers who were... overly enthusiastic about my voice.

Malena Tully

Casset days!!! Dang you found your soulmate, beautiful.

It does me too. First heard it when I was on holiday in Florida in the 1990's. Takes me right back to that time whenever I hear this song. It's still a favourite.
