The Cure


Cold

Scarred
Your back was turned
Curled like an embryo
Take another face
You will be kissed again
I was cold as I mouthed the words
And crawled across the mirror
I wait
Await the next breath
Your name
Like ice into my heart

A shallow grave
A monument to the ruined age
Ice in my eyes
And eyes like ice don't move
Screaming at the moon
Another past time
Your name
Like ice into my heart

Everything as cold as life
Can no one save you?
Everything
As cold as silence
And you will never say a word

Your name
Like ice into my heart

Just Like Heaven

'Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream'
she said
'The one that makes me laugh'
she said
And threw her arms around my neck
'Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face
and kissed her head
And dreamed of
all the different ways I had
To make her glow
'Why are you so far away?'
she said
'Why won't you ever know
that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you'

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips
to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone
Alone above the raging sea
That stole the only girl
I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
Just like heaven

If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

If only tonight we could sleep
In a bed made of flowers
If only tonight we could fall
In a deathless spell

If only tonight we could slide
Into deep black water
And breathe
And breathe...

Then an angel would come
With burning eyes like stars
And bury us deep
In his velvet arms

And the rain would cry
As our faces slipped away
And the rain would cry

Don't let it end...

Like Cockatoos

She walked out of her house
And looked around
At all the gardens that looked
Back at her house
(Like all the faces
That quiz when you smile...)

And he was standing
At the corner
Where the road turned dark
A part of shiny wet
Like blood the rain fell
Black down on the street

And kissed his feet she fell
Her head an inch away
from heaven
And her face pressed tight
And all around the night
sang out
Like cockatoos

'There are a thousand things'
he said
'I'll never say
those things to you again'
And turning on his heel
He left a trace of bubbles
Bleeding in his stead

And in her head
A picture of a boy who left her
Lonely in the rain
(And all around the night
sang out
Like cockatoos)

From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea

every time we do this
I fall for her
wave after wave after wave
it's all for her
'I know this can't be wrong' I say
(and I'll lie to keep her happy)
'as long as I know that you know
that today I belong
right here with you...'

and so we watch the sun come up
from the edge of the deep green sea
and she listens like her head's on fire
like she wants to believe in me
so I try
'put your hands in the sky
surrender
remember
we'll be here forever
and we'll never say goodbye...'

I've never been so
colourfully-see-through-head before
I've never been so
wonderfully-me-you-want-some-more
and all I want is to keep it like this
you and me alone
a secret kiss
and don't go home
don't go away
don't let this end
please stay
not just for today

'never never never never never let me go' she says
'hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days'
but suddenly she slows
and looks down at my breaking face
'why do you cry? what did I say?'
'but it's just rain' I smile
brushing my tears away...

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
too many tears
too many times
too many years I've cried over you

how much more can we use it up?
drink it dry?
take this drug?
looking for something forever gone
but something
we will always want?

'why why why are you letting me go?' she says
'I feel you pulling back
I feel you changing shape...'
and just as I'm breaking free
she hangs herself in front of me
slips her dress like a flag to the floor
and hands in the sky
surrenders it all...

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
too many tears
too many times
too many years I've cried for you
it's always the same
wake up in the rain
head in pain
hung in shame
a different name
same old game
love in vain
and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
away from home again...

Three Imaginary Boys

Walk across the garden
In the footsteps of my shadow
See the lights out
No one's home
In amongst the statues
Stare at nothing in
The garden moves
Can you help me?

Close my eyes
And hold so tightly
Scared of what the morning brings
Waiting for tomorrow
Never comes
Deep inside
The empty feeling
All the night time leaves me
Three imaginary boys

Slipping through the door
Hear my heart beat in the hallway
Echoes
Round and round
Inside my head
Drifting up the stairs
I see the steps behind me
Disappearing
Can you help me?

Close my eyes
And hold so tightly
Scared of what the morning brings
Waiting for tomorrow
Never comes
Deep inside
The empty feeling
All the night time leaves me
Three imaginary boys sing in my
Sleep sweet child
The moon will change your mind *

See the cracked reflection
Standing still
Before the bedroom mirror
Over my shoulder
But no one's there
Whispers in the silence
Pressing close behind me
Pressing close behind
Can you help me?
Can you help me?
Can you help me?
