"Cover Me" as written by and Bardi David/martin Martin....
Cover me
When I walk alone
Cover me
When my stance it stumbles homes
Cover me
We'll trip on through the sands of time
And cover me
Cause I've been branded
I've lost my mind
Lost my mind
But you'll cover me yeah
Give me shelter fro the storm
Over me
You fade into the night
Over me
You melt into the light
Over me
You will fear the things I need
Over me
You will feel the hate I breed

You're under me
And you will question my authority
You're under me
You will lose almost everything
You're under me
You will feel the pain I bring you
You're under me
And you never change
You never change a fucking thing
Not a fucking thing
But you'll cover me
Yeah, give me shelter from the storm
over me
Cover me

Don't you cover me
Cover me
Won't you
Cover me
Cover me
Give me shelter from the storm
People push & shove on time
I give it to you
What I have is what is mine
I feel it for you
You've got to cover me
You've got to cover me
People take & people steal
I have it for you
What I have is what I fear
I fear it for you
You've got to cover me
Cause I've been branded a broken man
Broken man
But you'll cover me, yes
Give me shelter from the storm

    General CommentI can see both of the meanings that are posted in here. I wish these guys were still recording. I think I was only in the third grade when these guys released their first album, so I of course never knew they existed until probably my sophomore year in highschool. But anyways, I think Candlebox is great! I thought they had a unique style.

    General Commentthis song is about a relationship. The different phases of the realtionship are shown through "you're over me..." When he says "You're under me" when she questioned his authority (by not obeying or by lying) he took almost everything from her. It is one of my favorities it has alot of emotion.

    General CommentI aggree with the god theory. Very easy to perform Guitar&Vocals. Play it to a girl and they will think its a relationship song and fall in love. HAHA Studid Chicks!

    General CommentAbout the misuse of power. Like Pearl Jam's "Deep" and Stone Temple Pilots' "Sex Type Thing".

    General CommentYes, it IS about a conversation with God. That is a fact! I have Kevin Martin himself saying that on tape!
    His new band is The Hiwatts and they rock! Kevin's voice is better than ever!
