Lover Undercover
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't need anything more than I got
I'll make it simple when others may not

Whenever you need some company
Some love of a different kind
Come to your lover, undercover
And let me ease your mind
Whenever your heart beats heavy
And worry has got you down
Come to your lover, undercover
And I will turn your mood around

Why you wanna leave when it's so easy just to stay?
Lying wrapped up in my arms, until the break of day
Undercover

Why you wanna leave when it's so easy just to stay?
Lying wrapped up in my arms, until the break of day, so

Whenever you need a soft touch
Know my demands are small




Make me a lover, undercover
Or don't ever love me at all

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Melody Gardot's song "Lover Undercover" speak of the unconditional love and care a person can offer to their partner. The singer expresses their willingness to be there for their loved one in any capacity, even if it means hiding their love and being their partner's "lover undercover". The singer assures their partner that they don't need anything more than what they have and will keep it simple for them. They offer their love as a refuge for whenever their partner needs company, a different kind of love, or comfort from their worries.


The chorus of the song questions why the partner would want to leave this kind of love and comfort and suggests that they can stay together, wrapped up in each other's arms until the break of day, under the cover of their love. The final verse expresses the singer's request for a soft touch and the assurance that they don't have any grand demands from their partner; all they need is to be loved, perhaps even "lover undercover".


Overall, the song talks about a love that is willing to hide itself and be there for the other person whenever they need someone. It reflects a sense of understanding and compassion and suggests that sometimes true love doesn't need grand gestures or expectations, but just the presence of the other person.

The first time I heard this song, when she hits that last note "at all", I noticed my face full of tears.

@jeff-onedayatatime.2870

I'm borrowing from someone else, when he noticed there were a bunch of "thumbs down" on a Duane Allman/Eric Clapton thing...but there are 29 people in the world who gave this song a thumbs down...that means there's at least 29 mfers in this world.

This is the type of music you imagine yourself listening to while sitting by a fire with a blanket and glass of whiskey.

When I first heard Melody Gardot it was singing this on my car radio. I had to pull into the nearest car park until it finished. Beautiful voice and this is a great song. Recommend If The Stars Were Mine too.
