Lover, You Should Have Come Over (7:46)

Cover of Grace

From Grace and 3 other releases

“Lover, You Should’ve Come Over” is the seventh track on Jeff Buckley’s album Grace. Inspired by the ending of the relationship between Buckley and Rebecca Moore it describes the endless confusion of growing up but not growing old, this song is one long, beautiful, awe inspiring contradiction but this in itself adds to the magic and mystery of this song.

The song was covered by the English jazz pianist songwriter Jamie Cullum on his 2003 Album Twentysomething, and has also been covered live by American singer-songwriter John Mayer. Although no cover could ever match the beauty and raw honesty of Jeff’s performances.
