The Cure - The Cure Lyrics






Lost

I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
In the head of this stranger in love

Holding on given up
To another under faded setting sun
And I wonder where I am...
Could she run away with him?
So happy and so young
And I stare
As I sing in the lost voice of a stranger in love
Out of time letting go

In another world that spins around for fun
And I wonder where I am...
Could he ever ask her why?
So happy and so young...
And I stare... But...
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
In the heart of this stranger in love
Holding on given up
To this other under faded setting sun
And I'm not sure where I am...
Would he really turn away?
So happy and so young...
And I stare...
As I play out the passion of a stranger in love
Letting go of the time
In this other world that spins around for one
And I'm not sure where I am...
Would she know it was a lie?
So happy and so young...
And I stare... But...
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
In the soul of this stranger in love
No control over one
To the other under faded setting sun
And I don't know where I am...
Should he beg her to forgive?
So happy and so young...
And I stare...
As I live out the story of a stranger in love
Waking up going on
In the other world that spins around undone
And I don't know where I am...
Should she really say goodbye?
So happy and so young
And I stare... But...
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I can't find myself
I got lost in someone else.

Labyrinth

Say it's the same sun spinning in the same sky
Say it's the same stars streaming in the same night
Tell me it's the same world whirling through the same space
Tell me it's the same time tripping through the same day
So say it's the same house and nothing in the house has changed
Yeah say it's the same room and nothing in the room is strange
Oh tell me it's the same boy burning in the same bed
Tell me it's the same blood breaking in the same head
Say it's the same taste taking down the same kiss
Say it's the same you
Say it's the same you and it's always been like this
Say it's the same you
Say it's the same you and it always and forever is
Say it's the same you
Say it's the same you and it's always been like this
Say it's the same you
Say it's the same you and it always and forever is
Say it's the same you
Say it's the same you
Yeah tell me it's all the same
This is how it's always been
But if nothing has changed...
Then it must mean...
But the sun is cold - the sky is wrong
The stars are black - the night is gone
The world is still - the space is stopped
The time is out - the day is dropped
The house is dark - the room is scarred
The boy is stiff - the bed is hard
The blood is thick - the head is burst
The taste is dry - the kiss is thirst
And it's not the same you
It's not the same you
No it never was like this
It's not the same you
It's not the same you and it never really is
It's not the same you
It's not the same you
No it never was like this
It's not the same you
It's not the same you and it never really is
It's not the same you
It's not the same you
Oh it's not the same
This isn't how it's always been
Everything has to have changed...
Or it's me...

Before Three

The happiest day I ever knew
In a sea of gold down next to you
So blurred and tired under summer sun
You whispered dreams of a world to come...
We were so in love
In this sea of gold so young and tired
Under summer sun hard by your side
Whispering dreams down next to you...
We were so in love
The happiest day
Yeah the happiest day I knew
But summer sun sea of gold
This perfect day oh so long ago
Whispering dreams so blurred and tired
We have to keep this day alive
Whispered dreams so young and tired
It's hard to hold this day inside
And the happiest night I ever had
Up next to you in silver sand
So scared and high under winter moon
You whispered dreams that would all come true...
We were so in love
Up next to you so f*cked and high
Under winter moon it made me cry
Whispering dreams on silver sand...
We were so in love
The happiest night
Yeah the happiest night I had
But winter moon and silver sand
This perfect night in another land
Whispering dreams so scared and high
We have to keep this night alive
Whispered dreams so f*cked and high
It's hard to hold this night inside
Yeah and every summer's sun I want again
And every winter's moon I want the same
My happiest day and my happiest night
Always next to you...
And held deep inside...
Keeps me alive

The End Of The World

Go if you want to
I never try to stop you know there's a reason
For all of this you're feeling low
It's not my call
You couldn't ever love me more
You couldn't love me more
You couldn't love...
Me...
I don't show much
It's not that hard to hide you see in a moment
I cant remember how to be all you wanted
I couldn't ever love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love...
You want me to cry and play my part
I want you to sigh and fall apart
We want this like everyone else
Stay if you want to
I always wait to hear you say there's a last kiss
For all the times you run this way it's not my fault
You couldn't ever love me more
You couldn't love me more
You couldn't love...
I couldn't ever love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love...
You want me to lie not break your heart
I want you to fly not stop and start
We want us like everything else
Ooo-eee-ooo...
Ooo-eee-ooo...
Maybe we didn't understand
It's just the end of the world...
Ooo-eee-ooo... Ooo-eee-ooo...
Maybe we didnt understand
Not just a boy and a girl
It's just the end of the end of the world...
Me... I don't say much
It's far too hard to make you see in a moment
I still forget just how to be all you wanted
I couldn't ever love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more

Anniversary

A year ago today we stood
Above this same awakening world
I held you

You never wanted me to know
Another year ago today
Before this same awakening world
I held you

I never meant to let you go
There was a moment
There always is
When time stood still
And always was this

One endless moment
You turn in pain
And I always let you go
Over and over again

A year ago tonight we lay
Below this same remembering sky
I kissed you

You never wanted me to know
Another year ago tonight
Behind this same remembering sky
I kissed you

I never meant to let you go
Another moment
There always is
As time stands still
And always is this

One endless moment
You tell me all
And I hold you and I kiss you
And I never let you go
I never let you go

Us Or Them

There is no terror in my heart
Death is with us all
We suck him down with our first breath
And spit him out as we fall
There is no terror in my heart
No dread of the unknown
Desire for paradise to be...
We love this on our own
No I don't want you anywhere near me
I don't want you anywhere near me
Get your f*cking world out of my head
I don't want you anywhere near me
I don't want you anywhere near me
Get your f*cking world out of my head
I don't want your "us or them"
No I don't need your "us or them"
Oh I don't want your "us or them"
I don't need your "us or them
You're us or them..."
"I live in knowledge of real truth
And all my gods are great!"
The doleful cant of a bigot
Blinded by fear and hate
You live in knowledge of real truth?
Oh the biggest lie I heard
How sick in your mind and soul
To be scared of my voice and my words
Oh you don't want me anywhere near you
You don't want me anywhere near you
Get my f*cking head out of your world
You don't want me anywhere near you
You don't want me anywhere near you
Get my f*cking head out of your world
I don't want your "us or them"
No I don't need your "us or them"
Oh I don't want your "us or them"
I don't need your "us or them"
As the only way this ever ends is "me"

Alt.End

Yeah it's a big bright beautiful world
Just the other side of the door
Six billion beautiful faces
But I saw them all before...
No this is not about running out on you
Not a case of right or wrong
It's only that it's over and done for me
It's already been and gone
And I don't want another go around - I don't want to start again
No I don't want another go around - I want this to be the end
I want this to be the end - I don't want to start again
I want this to be the last thing we do
It for me and you...
For all my dreams came true
Yeah I know I should care if you come with me
Yeah and I should care if you go
Really should care about your love or your hate of me
Yeah I should care... but I don't
And it's not about giving up on you
It's not a case of do or die
It's simply that it's over and out for me
There's no more room inside
And I don't want another run around - I don't want to start again
No I don't want another run around - I want this to be the end
I want this to be the end - I don't want to start again
I want this to be the last thing we do
It for me and you...
Yeah it's a big bright beautiful world out there
Just the other side of this door
Six billion beautiful faces await
But I saw it all before...
No this is not about running out on you
Not a case of right or wrong
It's only that it's over and done for me
It's already been and gone
And I don't want another go around - I don't want to start again
No I don't want another go around - I want this to be the end
I want this to be the end - I don't want to start again
I want this to be the last thing we do - this to be it for me and you
This to be the last we go through
this to be the end
For all my dreams came true

Taking Off

Tomorrow I can start again
With back to earth and carry on
The same as I did yesterday
Yeah I'll pick it up once more
And morning I'll be onto it
From square one start
And push it for a bit
Like I do everyday...
I'll get it down for sure
But tonight I climb with you
Tonight
So high with you
Tonight I shine with you
Tonight
Oh I'm so alive with you
Tomorrow I'll begin again
With heavy head to hold it
As I do it all like yesterday
Yeah I'll break it out again
And morning I'll be there in time
For clock back move
And make it for awhile
To get through everyday...
I'll roll it out the same
But tonight I climb with you
Tonight
So high with you
Tonight I shine with you
Tonight I'm so alive...
With you it's always here and never there
With you it's always here and never where
With you it's always here and never how
With you it's always here and always now
Yeah tomorrow I will start again
With back to earth and carry on
The same as I did yesterday
Yeah I'll pick it up once more
And morning I'll be onto it
From square one start and "bit a for it push"
Like I do everyday...
I'll get it down for sure
But tonight I climb with you
Tonight
So high with you
Tonight I shine with you

Never

She wants so much to please me she always does it right
She wants so much to please me all day and every night
She doesn't read the stars
She has no time for fate
She doesn't see the signs
She has no time to wait
She is trying to be the one for me
Trying to be enough for me
She is trying to be the one for me
Trying to be in touch
She is trying to be the one for me
Trying to be enough for me
She is trying to be the one for me
Trying to be in love
I want so much to need her I never turn away
I want so much to need her all night and every day
I never read the stars
I have no time for fate
I never see the signs
I have no time to wait
I am trying to be the one for her
Trying to be enough for her
I am trying to be the one for her
Trying to be in touch
I am trying to be the one for her
Trying to be enough for her
I am trying to be the one for her
Trying to be in love
We want so much to have this we hold each other tight
Yeah we want so much to have this always and everytime
But we don't need to read the stars
We don't need the time for fate
We don't need to see the signs
To know it's all too late
She will never be the one for me
She will never be enough
She will never be the one for me
We will never be in touch
I will never be the one for her
I will never be enough
I will never be the one for her
We will never be in love
We will never be in love
We will never be
In love

The Promise

How time will heal
Make me forget
You promised me
Time will heal
Make me forget
You promised me
Love will save us all
And time will heal
You promised me...
How love will save
Make me forget
You promised me
Love will save
Make me forget
You promised me
Time will heal us all
And love will save
You promised me...
I trusted you
I wanted your words
Believed in you
I needed your words
Time will heal
make me forget
And love will save us all
You promised me another wish
Another way
You promised me another dream
Another day
You promised me another time
You promised me another life
You promised me..
So I swallowed the shame and I waited
I buried the blame and I waited
Choked back years of memories...
I pushed down the pain and I waited
Trying to forget...
You promised me another wish
Another way
You promised me another dream
Another day
You promised me another time
You promised me...
Another lie
Oh you promised me...
You promised me... You promised me...
And I waited... And I waited... And I waited...
And I'm still waiting...

Going Nowhere

I'm going nowhere
Don't look so scared
I'm going nowhere

So tell me that you love me again

Could be

This Morning

Nothing left to feel
Nothing more to do
Nothing left to give
Nothing more in you
Nothing else to have or hold
Nothing left, but time to go
Time to go

Years go by
Didn't really say that much at all
And moments just fly
Didn't ever really touch at all
Weeks always run down
Didn't really get that close at all
And days, days fall out
Didn't ever really know at all

And then we're here in a room too clean and too bright
She stares at you for an hour
You stare into the light
For one last hour in the room
So mean and so white
I stare at her in this room as she stares into the night

Nothing left to feel
Nothing more to do
Nothing left to ask
Nothing more of you
Nothing else to share or show
Nothing left but time to go

In his eyes as we turn no eternity of life
In his eyes as we turn no infinity of why
In his eyes as we turn no beautiful goodbye

In his eyes as we turn... NOTHING BUT TEARS

In his eyes as we turn... NOTHING BUT TEARS

[Robert talks in a low voice:]
I couldn't understand too much of what was being said, in a matter of minutes,
Peacefully so slow, I had to think to breath, my heart burst, we moved in silence really slowly away from the world,
As we drove a strange silence, that moment, nothing will ever be the same, nothing will ever be the same, nothing
Will ever be the same

Days fall out
Weeks always run down
Moments just fly
Weeks go by
And then were here
And then we're here in a room too clean and too bright
I stare at you for an hour
You stare into the light
For one last hour in the room so mean and so white
You stare at me in this room as I stare into the night

Nothing left to feel
Nothing more to do
Nothing more to take
Nothing more from you
Nothing else to need or know
There's nothing left at all...but time to go

Truth Goodness And Beauty

I've been waiting for the lies to end
Holding for the bad to go
I've been hanging for the ugliness to change
Waiting for a world too true
Holding for a world too good
Hanging for a world too beautifuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuul

Wishing for a girl too true
Hoping for a girl too good
Hungry for a girl too beautiful
All I say is a lie she sighs
Nothing I say is true
And all I do is bad she cries
Nothing I do is good
And yeh all I am is ugly
Nothing I am is beautiful at all

Don't get this world
I Don't get this girl

So look, but you wont see it
Listen, and you wont hear it
Reach out, and you wont hold it
You cant know it, but you can free it
You cant name it, but could feel it

I've been waiting for the lies to end
Holding for the bad to go
I've been hanging for the ugliness to change
Waiting for a world too true
Holding for a world too good
Hanging for a world too beautiful..

Wishing for a girl...like you
Hoping for a girl...like you
Hungry for a girl...like you
No...not like you...you

Fake

I can't fly I never really could
I don't feel you ever really understood at all
I can't fly I never really could
I just throw my arms out as I fall

Always say you know me, you you don't know me at all
Only want to hold me, but I'm not here to hold
Always say you know me, but you don't know me at all
Only want to show me, but I'm not yours to show, no no no

I don't dream I never really did
Don't believe you ever really took this into good
No I don't dream I never really did
I just wake up, make up as I should

No I don't dream
No I don't dream
No I don't dream

I wont see I never really would
I don't sense you ever realised it right
No I wont see I never really would
I just roll my eyes up out of sight

Always say you know me, you you don't know me at all
Only want to hold me, but I'm not here to hold
Always say you know me, but you don't know me at all
Only want to show me, but I'm not yours to show

I can't ever come back, If I never go
I don't ever explain, if I never know
I won't ever take it, if I never give
And if I never live, if I never live, if I never live
