Am    
I asked my father
                          
Em    
I said, "father change my name."
            
Am       
The one I'm using now
     
Am        
It's covered up
              
Am   
With fear and filth
                  
Em   
And cowardice and shame

        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me
        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me

            
Am                     
He said, "I locked you in this body
                         
Em  
I meant it as a kind of trial
        
Am                 
You can use it for a weapon
                       
Em        
Or to make some woman smileeeee."

        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me

              
Am                  
"then let me start again," I cried
                      
Em  
"please let me start again
         
Am                        
I want a face that's fair this time
                        
Em    
I want a spirit that is calm."

        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me
        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me

         
Am                    
"I never turned aside," he said
                 
Em 
"I never walked away
       
Am                      
It was you who built the temple
                             
Em    
It was you who covered up my face."

        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me
        
C                         
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover
                         
G         
Lover, lover, lover come back to me

             
Am                
And may the spirit of this song
               
Em           
May it rise up pure and free
       
Am                 
May it be a shield for you
                        
Em    
A shield against the enemyyyyy
