JI=James Iha, NG=Nina Gordon (of Veruca Salt), J+N=both)

JI: You should know that I love you
We should love like lovers do
And I can't help but fall for you
Oh honey I'm just a fool
Now you know

NG: Darling, I'll never be true
You see, for so long I was blue
JI: I'm not the lonely one
NG: And if I hurt, then you will, too
Oh honey I always lose
Now you know

J+N: Lover, when will you?
JI: I'm so afraid that noone cares
J+N: Lover, can't find you
JI: I swear to God don't leave me here
J+N: Now you know

J+N: Only you know that it can't be
When noone else here really means
JI: Anything to me
J+N: If you hurt inside
If you confide in me again

NG: Since you ran away
JI: Hold me now, tell me how
Nothing's lost

J+N: Lover, when will you?
I'm so afraid that noone cares
Lover, can't find you
And noone knows what brings us here
Lover
JI: Hold me now
NG: Hold me now
JI: Tell me how
J+N: Nothings lost

    General CommentBecause James Iha was part of the Smashing Pumpkins the entire time they were around, genius. He just recently joined A Perfect Circle.

    General Commentthis song means so much for me on two levels, I was going with this girl and this was one of her fav pumkin songs by far, she loved this song so every time i hear it i reminds me so much of her, and i guess the other level( which i am not to proud to say ) is that girl iand i are perfectly described through that song. sometimes people need to listen to premanitions to avoid bad consequences

    General CommentI think this song is about two lovers who cant seem to agree, one wants one thing and one wants the other, noone is willing change, this happens quite frequently.

    General CommentThis song is on "Aeroplane Flies High" box set. Also on the "Butterfly With Bullet Wings" single. This song is pretty good, remind me of Fleetwood Mac :-). The first time I heard it I thought it was D'arcy. lol :-D

    I downloaded it on Musicmatch Jukebox v10.0 for $.99. I didn't go thru the trouble of ordering it for an outrageous amount of money. I think u should do the same, just download from whatever music site u use. If it doesn't have it, then Musicmatch it's highly successful. ^_^

    General CommentThis is off of the "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" single. I personally think it's one of the best b-sides they've done. James Iha sings with Nina Gordon from the band "Veruca Salt." James Iha is the guitarist for the Smashing Pumpkins.
