"Come Cover Me" as written by and Jukka Antero Nevalainen Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen....
Come wet a widow's eye
Cover the night with your love
Dry the rain from my beaten face
Drink the wine the red sweet taste of mine

Come cover me with you
For the thrill
Till you will take me in
Come comfort me in you
Young love must
Live twice only for us

For me
For you
Time devours passion's beauty
With me
With you
In war for the love of you

For me
For you
Time devours passion's beauty
With me
With you
Tonight any dream will do

Not a world but your fine grace
Seduction in sleepwalker's land
November dressed in May on your face
Holding us now the lovecropper's hand

Come cover me with you
Come cover
Come cover me now

Come cover me with you
For the thrill
Till you will take me in
Come comfort me in you
Young love must
Live twice only for us

Come cover me with you
Come cover
Come cover me now

    General Comment'wet a widow's eye' is from shakespeare sonnet 9, which is about marriage. 'Dry the rain from my beaten face' is also from shakespeares sonnet 34 ,which is kinda about being betrayed. I do think this song is about love, but maybe thats just my naive wishful thinking :) either way, its still a great song.

    General Commenttarja or whoever this song is about fell deeply in love with someone and is asking this person to be with her, and to fall deeply in love with her, because she will be very happy with him

    General CommentI'd like to think this song is about love/lust happy stuff... But it has sinister undertones that just creep me out a little...

    General Commentits more like:

    this girl was in a relationship with this one guy and even though she really loved him and all that, it just didn't work out and the realtionship ended.

    but she never got over it and all she wants now is for him to leave the new girl that he's with now,
    ( in war for the love of you)

    and to come back to her.

    General CommentI think it's about rekindling the romance in an old relationship where all passion has died.

    General Commenti love this song! talk about sexual undertones.
    i don't know, but if you look at this part of the chorus:

    Come COVER ME WITH YOU
    for the thrill
    till you will TAKE ME IN

    though it's just a part of the song, it tells a lot especially being the chorus and
    judging that this was written by Tuomas and Emppu,who are men, hmmmm
    till you will take me in is something! or maybe it's just me being green. ^_^

    General Commenti think it's about the life staff and you can't imagine the sizes of that staff and then youre looking for help of somebody to cover you.
