For My Lover Lyrics - Tracy Chapman

Review The Song (5)



Two weeks in a Virginia jail
For my lover, for my lover
Twenty thousand dollar bail
For my lover, for my lover

And everybody thinks
That I'm the fool
But they don't get
Any love from you

The things we won't do for love
I'd climb a mountain if I had to
Risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you...

Everyday I'm psychoanalyzed
For my lover, for my lover
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover, for my lover

And everybody thinks
That I'm the fool
But they don't get
Any love from you

The things we won't do for love
I'd climb a mountain if I had to
Risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you...

I follow my heart
And leave my head to ponder
Deep in this love
No man can shake
I follow my heart
And leave my mind to wonder
Is this love worth
The sacrifices I make?

Two weeks in a Virginia jail
For my lover, for my lover
Twenty thousand dollar bail
For my lover, for my lover

Everyday I'm psychoanalyzed
For my lover, for my lover
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover, for my lover

And everybody thinks
That I'm the fool
But they don't get
Any love from you

The things we won't do for love
I'd climb a mountain if I had to
Risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you...

For My Lover | Reviewer: Rosslynva | 11/4/2007

This song speaks to me, it reminds me of a beautiful relationship I experienced last summer that came to an end.



Parallel meanings | Reviewer: Susan Franzblau | 9/11/2007

What most haunts me about this song is that it could equally apply to any kind of addiction, any passion that can tear your heart out.



Amazing lyrics | Reviewer: Sonu | 4/11/2007

It shows her inner beauty and how much she is filled with love in her heart. This song hints an arian dedication when it comes to true love.
