Lovers In A Dangerous Time Lyrics - Barenaked Ladies



Review The Song (2)


Lovers In A Dangerous Time

Don't the hours grow shorter as the days go by?
We never get to stop and open our eyes.
One minute you're waiting for the sky to fall
Next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all.

Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time

These fragile bodies of touch and taste
This fragrant skin, this hair like lace
Spirits open to thrust of grace,
Never a breath you can't afford to waste.

Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time

When you're lovers in a dangerous time,
Sometimes you're made to feel as if your loves a crime.
Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
You gotta kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight.

Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time


We were lovers in a dangerous time
We were lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers, Lovers, Lovers
Ohhhhhh
Lovers in a dangerous time

A good cover of Bruce Cockburn | Reviewer: Don Searle | 12/2/12

Certainly this Canadian band did a fabulous job of covering fellow Canadian music icon Bruce Cockburn. It has a feeling all of it’s own when performed by Bare Naked Ladies. Like so many of Cockburn’s songs, there is some controversy around the lyrics and their meaning, as the gay community seemed to adopt this song as an anthem of sorts. But the song was actually inspired by an incident that so many of today’s fathers experience: that of picking up one’s child from primary school during the painful marriage break-up that was ensuing. Many other songs came out of this chapter in Cockburn’s life. The powerfulness of intimacy that comes through in this expression of rawness of humanity is attested to by the ultimate compliment - being covered by popular artists like BNL.

Its a great song ... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/16/09

used to listen to barenakeds back in high school ... with their song ...its all been done ...

happened to listen to this one some time back ... knew what they were talkin about was true ... but didnt know i will fall in the same situation soon ... : ) ...

changed a job and met this girl during training ...

fell in love sort of with sweet anjali ... when she was about to be engaged in arranged marriage ... now i see her slipping away ... and not sure what i can do when she doesn't want to go against the families wishes ...

lovers in a dangerous time ... : ) ... lets see what life has in store for us ...

god bless all the lovers and otherwise too ...
: ) ...

namaste ...
