"Oh My Lover" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
Oh, my lover
Don't you know it's all right?
You can love her
And you can love me at the same time
Much to discover
I know you don't have the time but
Oh, my lover
Don't you know it's all right?

Oh, my sweet thing
Oh, my honey thighs
Give me your troubles
I'll keep them with mine
Take at your leisure
Take whatever you can find but
Oh, my sweet thing
Don't you know it's all right?

It's all right
It's all right
There's no time
So it's all right

What's that color
Forming around your eyes?
Waltz, my lover
Tell me that it's all right
Just another
Before you go, go away
Oh, my lover
Why don't you just say my name?

And it's all right
Say it's all right
There's no time

Oh
I, i, i, 'ime
La, i, i, 'ime

    General CommentWhen I hear PJ Harvey's voice it just sounds as if she is really in pain and it comes through in her lyrics and her music. The same as the song Missed.
    As far as the actual lyrics are concerned. I think it may be about a woman who at any cost is trying to maintain the relationship she has with her lover even if it means sharing him. Sister Soulja has a similar idea in her book ( just an FYI)

    Song MeaningWhat's that color
    Forming around your eyes
    Once my lover
    Tell me that it's alright
    Just another
    Before you go...go away

    Does she kill him?
