"Lover of Mine" is a song by 5 Seconds of Summer and appears as the ninth track on their fourth studio album, CALM.

BackgroundEdit

"I was trying to go for a Jeff Buckley vibe on this. I actually wrote this with my girlfriend [Sierra Deaton] and then I took it into the studio. We finished it there with everyone else."[1]

On a livestream which Luke was running on the band’s Instagram account, he played a snippet of this song in response to a question asking what his favourite song off CALM was.

This song is about the maturity of the protagonist and realising the past mistakes they have made with their lover.

LyricsEdit

Lover of mine, maybe we'll take some time
Kaleidoscope mind gets in the way
Hope and I pray, darling, that you will stay
Butterfly lies, chase them away, mmm

Dance around the living room
Lose me in the sight of you
I've seen the red, I've seen the blue
Take all of me
Deep to where your secrets hide
Where we've been a thousand times
Swallow every single lie
Take all of me

I'll never give you away
'Cause I already made that mistake
If my name never fell off your lips again
I know it'd be such a shame
When I take a look at my life and all of my crimes
You're the only thing that I think I got right
I'll never give you away
'Cause I already made, already made that mistake

Lover of mine, I know you're colourblind
I watched the world fall from your eyes, ooh
All my regrets and things you can't forget
Light them all up, kiss them goodbye

Dance around the living room
Lose me in the sight of you
I've seen the red, I've seen the blue
Take all of me
Deep to where your secrets hide
Where we've been a thousand times
Swallow every single lie
Take all of me

I'll never give you away
'Cause I already made that mistake
If my name never fell off your lips again
I know it'd be such a shame
When I take a look at my life and all of my crimes
You're the only thing that I think I got right
I'll never give you away
'Cause I already made, already made that mistake
