So beautiful
julia | europe | 02/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This song is so beautiful, I have no words to describe how truly charming it is. The piano notes add a certain romantic quality to it and the drum beat is so chilled, yet so extravagant. Add that to Peter Doherty's sexy "bedroom-voice" and you get an amazing collaboration. For Lovers has all the elements to make you want to cry, smile and sing along. Listening to Pete belt out "This is for lovers....running away" you really do feel like you're in love and can't help but imagine yourself wrapped up in the arms of a loved one.

If you own this, I can bet you that you'll be playing it on repeat for days on end.
Pure romance

"From the gorgeous piano notes which open up this lilting ballad, and right into the swaying, lightly soaring chorus, this song will make you want to fall in love with somebody.It is romantic and melancholic without being sappy or schmaltzy-due to the tasteful arrangements and muscianship and Pete Doherty's slightly raspy,subtly sex-kittenish vocals.

Doherty pulls you in from the opening line "I'm running away with you, that's all I ever do". If you listen, you will hear the quiet conviction in his voice, and that conviction, coupled with the sheer melodic beauty of the song is enough to make you want to cry. The song has an almost atmospheric, dreamlike quality to it, and its very addictive, so when you hear it, be prepared to listen to it for days."
Set it to 'repeat track'

"truly beautiful. i'll never forget listening to its british radio debut over the internet. it was thrilling and it still is, every time i hear it. it's simply an astonishingly beautiful song. the video is also quite nice, if you happen to catch it. some assumed that peter doherty wrote this song about ex-bandmate carl barat, but wolfman actually penned this one. extremely well done. one might even say perfect, particularly when it comes to doherty's vocals. in my opinion, the piano is as well.

the b-side, man who came to stay, is a familiar favorite to fans of doherty and the many incarnations of babyshambles over the last couple of years. it is also haunting though in a very different way. i'd recommmend listening to for lovers on repeat for a day or two, then doing the same with man who came to stay.

achingly lovely."
