COVER ME

Live 10 May 1988 version


Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide


Cover me, oh cover me
I need your love, I need your love to cover me
Ohh
One, two, three!

The times are tough now, just getting tougher
This old world is rough, it's just getting rougher
Cover me, come on baby cover me
Yeah I'm looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me

Promise me baby you won't let them find us
Hold me in your arms, let's let our love blind us
Cover me, yeah cover me
??? I'm looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me

Outside's the rain, the driving snow
I can hear the wild wind blowing
Turn out the light, bolt the door
I ain't going out there no more

The whole world is out there just trying to score
I've seen enough, I don't wanna see no more
Cover me, oh oh oh oh cover me
I'm looking for a lover who will come on in, and please cover me

Outside's the rain, the driving snow
I can hear the wild wind blowing
Turn out the light, bolt the door
I ain't going out there no more

The whole world is out there just trying to score
I've seen enough, I don't wanna see no more
So cover me, come on baby, come on baby now
I'm looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me
???, I'm just looking, well come on in and cover me
Baby I'm just looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me
Come on baby, come, come

I just want a little shelter now
I just need a little shelter
I want a little shelter baby
Come on and wrap your arms around me
I need it now, and I need it right now
And I need your love, I want it right now
Wrap your little arms around me

It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, you're just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away

Cover me, come cover me
I need your love, I need your love to cover me
Ohh, it's just a kiss away, kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Shut out the lights, shut the door
I don't wanna go out there anymore

The above lyrics are for live 10 May 1988 performance of COVER ME at Metropolitan Sports Center in Bloomington, MN, during the Tunnel Of Love Express Tour. The song was played in a rearranged full-band version that starts with Patti Scialfa singing two lines from Martha And The Vandellas' NOWHERE TO RUN (the parts in bold) and concludes with a snippet of The Rolling Stones' GIMME SHELTER.
