Come On Over About the Song

Steal your love
As the good die young
Take what's yours
Before they come

All the right moves might
Still leave you in the wrong place
The strangest beauty's in the strangest places
Strangest beauty's in the empty spaces

Come on through
Come on over
You'd better not run or they shoot you down
And they're all over this town

Take your shot
As they're far between
Nature kills and so can we
Your're walking a thin line
You're making me nervous now
Something's about to go so wrong

Come on through
Come on over
(She fills me up)
You'd better not run or they shoot you down
(She tastes of luck)
We all need satisfaction
And its all over this town

Strangest beauty's in the strangest places
Strangest beauty's in the empty spaces

Come on through
Come on over
(She fills me up)
You'd better not run or they shoot you down
(She tastes of luck)
We all need satisfaction
And its all over
As we move closer

So come on through
Come on over
(She fills me up)
Come on through
Come on over, over ,over, oh


Band Thoughts:
Were most of these songs written already, or did you flesh a lot out with the band and Page in pre-production? - liveDaily.com
It was a combination. Nothing was [around] longer than a couple of years. I didn't have any of this stuff when I was in Bush; they weren't leftover songs. What happened, when I first began to write, I was writing on bass, because I was thinking, "Well, how am I going to change this up?" Because I was thinking more Public Image, more dub, so I wrote a lot of songs on bass, and the guitar was much more sparingly used. Then, when I knew I was going to do the rest of the record with Page, I began to write again on guitar, because I felt liberated, almost. It cleared up my aesthetic. So that led to writing some heavier, riff-style songs, like "Boom Box," "Seventh Wave," "Come on Over." - Gavin
"Come on Over" feels very Helmet-esque. Sometimes the heaviest things don't have all the notes. It's the respect of space. Of rests. - liveDaily.com
That's very true. Space is everything to me. I was writing that in my studio in London. I write songs, some ideas, and then I have someone come in and flesh them out, and the process goes from there. What was weird about that song, I had a guy come to my studio one day when I really wasn't ready, and I didn't really like what was going down. So I sent him home and said, "This is totally my fault, come back tomorrow." And I said to myself, "Come on, think simple," and "Come on Over" came out really quickly. - Gavin
