"Lovers" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Joseph Butler....
She shivers in the rain
It's the capital connected with her veins
Stepping under statues and on trains
Till we are under covers

She giggles like a child
With no sign of all the tension in her life
It's written on a t-shirt and it writes
That there is no other

Cause we are the lovers
We are the lovers
We're different colors
But we stand up as one

We are the lovers
We are the lovers
Two different colors
But we stand up as one

All the silly things we do
Just remind me of the flippancy of youth
Kissing under statues throwing food
And getting into trouble

She shivers in the cold
It's the capital connected with her bones
Jumping into taxis here we go
No other

Cause we are the lovers
We are the lovers
We're different colors
But we stand up as one

We are the lovers
We are the lovers
Two different colors
But we stand up as one

Cause we are the lovers
We are the lovers
We're different colors
But we stand up as one

We are the lovers
We are the lovers
Two different colors
But we stand up as one

Stop

    General CommentI believe that this song is about people in general, that everyone is different colors, but we should all get along. This is truly an amazing song.

    General Commentthis is about being happy and in love...in brett anderson's and bernard butler's world. i love anderson's voice when he strains on 'colours'. i really can't believe they're back together again, for years it was just an NME urban legend.

    General CommentI have no idea for sure but is it about an Inter-racial relationship 'Two different colours but we stand up as one'? Great song.

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong, the correct lyrics are:

    She shivers in the rain
    It's the capital connecting with her veins
    Stepping under statues and on trains
    'Till we are under covers
    She giggles like a child
    With no sign of all the tension in her life
    It's written on her T-shirt and in her eyes
    That there is no other

    'Cause we are the lovers, we are the lovers
    We're different colours but we stand up as one
    We are the lovers, we are the lovers
    Two different colours but we stand up as one

    All the silly things we do
    Just remind me of the flippancy of youth
    Kissing under statues, throwing food
    And getting into trouble
    She shivers in the cold
    It's the capital connecting with her bones
    Jumping into taxis, here we go
    Yes there is no other

    Cause we are the lovers, we are the lovers
    We're different colours but we stand up as one
    We are the lovers, we are the lovers
    Two different colours but we stand up as one

    General CommentHeheh this is the most corniest song ever.. at first it kind of annoyed me because I figured after Suede, Brett and Bernard back together had to be special. But I love how anthem-y it is right when it hits the chorus. you just have to sing along :)

    General CommentDamn good guitar writing by Bernard Butler. His crunchy melody exudes tons of energy in this song. The more I listen to the guitar the more I love this song. He's a damn good guitarist, I must say...
