"Come To Me" as written by and Mark Lanegan....
Come to me
Light on my shoulder
Come to me
Burn your starry crown
My dark angel
I've tried, I can't get over
Cause when I think I'm climbing
I'm really so far down
Time takes a while, to break ya
And now, only fire can wake ya
Oh weeping willow
Coughing up my heart
Ask God to see my shadow
And kept us apart
Through my mind's every riot, or revelation
You've just now gone
You've just now gone, as I arrive
At every station
Come to me
Either early or late
I've learned this by habit
Now I know how to wait
Come to me
Come to me
Come to me

    General CommentThis is by far one of the highlights of Bubblegum. The rough gravelpit voice of Mark Lanegan contrasting the soft angelic voice of PJ Harvey in this song of desperate longing is so heartwrenchingly good. The instrumentation is so delicate; the wirey buzz that echoes each vocal delivery, the faded distant strings, the bass curtaining our artists with miserable desperation. It's a crime music like this doesn't catch more of the limelight.

    General CommentI have owned this album for about a year now, and never actually listened to this song until reading what people had to say about it on here, and they are right, it is so good!

    General CommentThis song is about two people who are both patiently waiting for the other to come to them. for one reason or another, they haven't been able to or can't be together. maybe they broke up, and neither of them can find the courage or the will to return to the other; so they'll just wait and wait and hope their lover will eventually come to them. It's a sad song but there's a quality of desperation and desire that overshadow this.

    My OpinionI don't see it as a couple who are broken up. I always took it as a couple who haven't been together yet as there's been obstacles in the way. It's got that sexual tension, but also a tenderness that I just love. To hear two such artists (who both have spent most of their careers on the darker end of the lyrical spectrum)sing so tenderly together is a revelation. Been listening to Bubblegum for 8 years now, it'll never lose its appeal to me!
