GARAGE INC. (1998)

(Original de Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds)

There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls
There's a devil waiting outside your door
And he's weak with evil and broken by the world
And he's shouting your name and asking for more
There's a devil waiting outside your door

Loverman! Since the world began
Forever, Amen Till the end of time Take off that
dress I'm coming down I'm your loverman
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

L is for LOVE, baby
O is for ONLY you that I do
V is for loving VIRTUALLY everything that you are
E is for loving almost EVERYTHING that you do
R is for RAPE me
M is for MURDER me
A is for ANSWERING all of my prayers
N is for KNOWING your loverman's going to
be the answer to all of yours

Loverman! Till the bitter end
While the empires burn down Forever and ever
and ever and ever Amen I'm your loverman
So help me, baby So help me
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
I'm your loverman!

There's a devil crawling along your floor
There's a devil crawling along your floor
With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door
With his straining sex in his jumping paw
There's a devil crawling along your floor
And he's old and he's stupid and
he's hungry and he's sore
And he's blind and he's lame
and he's dirty and he's poor
Give him more
There's a devil crawling along your floor

Loverman! And here I stand Forever, Amen
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
Forgive me, baby My hands are tied
And I got no choice No, I got no choice, no choise at all

I'll say it again
L is for LOVE, baby
O is for O yes I do
V is for VIRTUE, so I ain't gonna hurt you
E is for EVEN if you want me to
R is for RENDER unto me, baby
M is for that which is MINE
A is for ANY old how, darling
N is for ANY old time

Loverman! I got a masterplan
To take off your dress And be your man
Seize the throne Seize the mantle
Seize that crown Cause I am what I am
What I am what I am I'm your loverman!

There's a devil lying by your side
There's a devil lying by your side
You might think he's asleep
but look at his eyes
And he wants you, darling, to be his bride
And there's a devil lying by your side

Loverman! Loverman!

I'll be your loverman
'till the end of time

I'm your loverman

How much longer?

    General CommentI love this song,The Bad Seeds do it just as well to,but that kick ass wah effect that Kirk uses on his guitar is ace.I think this is a really good song,but it is second best to the awesome cover of Astronomy.

    General CommentThis song is pretty good, one of the better ones on disc one.

    By the way, Mercyful Fate is the best cover they do.

    General Commenti know this isnt a metallica song originally , But metallica did a sweet ass cover of it :P , i feel as if the song is emphasizing on every persons need for sexual conquest , a deep meaning but it can also be ilustrated by its association with ''Love'' hmmm a hard song to understand me thinks
