Can you describe yourself with The cure lyrics?

 
  • lets go and throw all the songs we know into the sea

    but i just keep on laughing, hiding the tears in my eyes

    and all the other voices said change your mind you're always wrong

    i want the world to make me wonder. i want to walk on water.

    And the tap drips
    drip drip drip drip drip drip drip...

    It's always the same
    I'm running towards nothing
    again and again and again

    In the caves
    all cats are grey
    In the caves
    the textures coat my skin
    In the death cell
    a single note
    rings on and on and on

    "Don't talk of worlds that never were
    the end is all that's ever true
    There's nothing you can ever say
    nothing you can ever do... "
    "Just paint your face" the shadows smile

    So I tried to laugh about it,
    cover it all up with lies.
    I tried to laugh about it,
    hiding the tears in my eyes.

    All the faces
    all the voices blur

    Holding on given up
    to another under faded setting sun
    And I wonder where I am...

    Worn-out and empty and all alone
    with nothing left to say

    I don't think I'm any closer now
    than i was at fifteen
    I still don't know what i really want
    or how i really feel
    Sometimes i think i've seen too much
    sometimes nothing at all
    and sometimes i think i just forgot
    what i was looking for

    And the tap drips
    drip drip drip drip drip drip drip...



  • The CurePornographyA Strange Day

    Give me your eyes
    That I might see the blind man kissing my hands
    The sun is humming
    My head turns to dust as he plays on his knees
    As he plays on his knees

    And the sand
    And the sea grows
    I close my eyes
    Move slowly through drowning waves
    Going away on a strange day

    And I laugh as I drift in the wind
    Blind
    Dancing on a beach of stone
    Cherish the faces as they wait for the end
    Sudden hush across the water
    And we're here again

    And the sand
    And the sea grows
    I close my eyes
    Move slowly through drowning waves
    Going away
    On a strange day

    My head falls backs
    And the walls crash down
    And the sky
    And the impossible
    Explode
    Held for one moment I remember a song
    An impression of sound
    Then everything is gone
    Forever

    A strange day

    It's not a case of doing what's right
    It's just the way I feel that matters
    Tell me I'm wrong
    I don't really care

    It's not a case of share and share alike
    I take what I require
    I don't understand ...
    You say it's not fair

    You expect me to act
    Like a lover
    Consider my moves
    And deserve the reward
    To hold you in my arms
    And wait
    And wait
    And wait
    For something to happen

    It's not a case of telling the truth
    Some lines just fit the situation
    Call me a liar
    You would anyway

    It's not a case of aiming to please
    You know you're always crying
    It's just your part
    In the play for today


    /Play for Today/

  • Sorry for repeating it but isn't it just fascinating (and however sad) how their lyrics can touch us and that the vast majority of us could use at least 5 songs to describe him/herself?
    Amazing.

    sailing into the sun - I'll be baptized there
  • Every word of this song consumes me

    Hey hey!
    Just one more and I'll walk away
    All the everything you win
    Turns to nothing today
    And I forget how to move
    When my mouth is this dry
    And my eyes are bursting hearts
    In a blood-stained sky
    Oh it was sweet
    It was wild
    And oh how we...
    I trembled
    Stuck in honey
    Honey
    Cling to me...
    So just one more
    Just one more go
    Inspire in me the desire in me
    To never go home

    Oh just one more
    And I'll walk away
    All the everything you win
    Turns to nothing today
    So just one more
    Just one more go
    Inspire in me the desire in me
    To never go home

    "this dream never ends" you said
    "this feeling never goes
    The time will never come to slip away"
    "this wave never breaks" you said
    "this sun never sets again
    These flowers will never fade"
    "this world never stops" you said
    "this wonder never leaves
    The time will never come to say goodbye"
    "this tide never turns" you said
    "this night never falls again
    These flowers will never die"

    Never die
    Never die
    These flowers will never die

    "this dream always ends" I said
    "this feeling always goes
    The time always comes to slip away"
    "this wave always breaks" I said

    And these flowers will always fade"
    "this world always stops" I said
    "this wonder always leaves
    The time always comes to say goodbye"

    Always die
    Always die
    These flowers will always die

    Between you and me
    It's hard to ever really know
    Who to trust
    How to think
    What to believe
    Between me and you
    It's hard to ever really know
    Who to choose
    How to feel
    What to do

    Never fade
    Never die
    You give me flowers of love

    Always fade
    Always die
    I let fall flowers of blood

  • Charlotte Sometimes

    all the faces
    all the voices blur
    change to one face
    change to one voice
    prepare yourself for bed
    the light seems bright
    and glares on white walls
    all the sounds of
    charlotte sometimes
    into the night with
    charlotte sometimes

    night after night she lay alone in bed
    her eyes so open to the dark
    the streets all looked so strange
    they seemed so far away
    but charlotte did not cry

    the people seemed so close
    playing expressionless games
    the people seemed
    so close
    so many
    different names...

    sometimes i'm dreaming
    where all the other people dance
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    charlotte sometimes
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    expressionless the trance
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    so many different names
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    the sounds all stay the same
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    she hopes to open shadowed eyes
    on a different world
    come to me
    scared princess
    charlotte sometimes

    on that bleak track
    (see the sun is gone again)
    the tears were pouring down her face
    she was crying and crying for a girl
    who died so many years before...

    sometimes i dream
    where all the other people dance
    sometimes i dream
    charlotte sometimes
    sometimes i dream
    the sounds all stay the same
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    there are so many different names
    sometimes i dream
    sometimes i dream...

    charlotte sometimes crying for herself
    charlotte sometimes dreams a wall around herself
    but it's always with love
    with so much love it looks like
    everything else
    of charlotte sometimes
    so far away
    glass sealed and pretty
    charlotte sometimes

    So it's all come back round to breaking apart again,
    breaking apart like I'm made up of glass again,
    making it up behind my back again,
    holding my breath for the fear of sleep again,
    holding it up behind my head again,
    cut in deep to the heart of the bone again,
    round, and round, and round, and it's coming apart again over, and over, and over.
    Now that I know that I'm breaking to pieces,
    I'll pull out my heart and I'll feed it to anyone.
    Crying for sympathy, crocodiles cry for the love of the crowd and three cheers from everyone.
    Dropping through the sky, through the glass of the roof, through the roof of your mouth, through the mouth of your eye, through the eye of the needle it's easier for me to get closer to heaven than ever feel whole again..


    And also....


    my whole head screams with grinding my teeth,
    desperate to find a single word I can keep,
    any kind of day, any kind of fix, and just any kind of world that doesn't make me sick.
    And I can say that I will, but I won't.
    And I can say that I do, but I don't.
    And I can say that I feel, but there's nothing to feel,
    just a strange kind of nothing where there used to be me.

    Hm, so many to choose from. I think this is going to make me seem a bit bipolar or at least a little crazy. I often feel like I identify a bit *too* much with Robert's lyrics.

    "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"

    "Charlotte sometimes, crying for herself / Charlotte sometimes dreams a wall around herself"

    "She talked about the armies / that marched inside her head // How they made her dreams go bad / but oh how happy she was / how proud she was / to be fighting in the war / in the empty world"

    "Do you want to know why I hate you? / Well, I'll try and explain"

    "Was that it? / Was that the Jupiter show? / It kinda wasn't quite what I'd hoped for, you know..."

    "And now that I know that I'm breaking to pieces / I'll pull out my heart and I'll feed it to anyone // Crying for sympathy / A crocodile's cry / for the love of the crowd and the three cheers from everyone // Dropping through the sky, through the glass of the roof, through the roof of your mouth, through the mouth of your eye / through the eye of the needle / it's easier for me to get closer to heaven than to ever feel whole again"

    "It's the perfect day / for dreams come true / for thinking big and doing anything you want to do / Let's get happy"

    "The sun is up / I'm so happy I could scream"

    "Sometimes you don't make me feel like I'm living at the edge of the world"

    "Between you and me / it's hard to ever really know who to trust / how to think / what to believe"

    "Oh I'll wait for you like I always do / behind the signs that sell the news / I'll watch for you like yesterday"

    "Please wake up / It's so dark and cold / Please wake up / I feel so alone"

    ... I could be at this for hours, and I've wasted enough time already when I should be working.

  • "I don't care / if only I could say that / and not feel so sick and scared"

    "and the further i get / from the things that i care about / the less i care about
    how much further away i get... / i am lost again / with everything gone / and more alone / than i have ever been / i expect you to understand / to feel it too / but i know that / even if you will / you cannot ever help me / nor can i / ever help you"

    "It's better to forget / than to remember me and cry"

    "It doesn't matter if we all die"

    "I must fight this sickness / find a cure"

    "I couldn't hear a word you said, I couldn't hear at all, You talked until your tongue fell out and then you talked some more
    I knew if I turned, I'd turn away from you and I couldn't look back"
    "I know I was wrong when I said it was true," "I misjudged your limit pushed you too far, took you for granted I thought that you needed me more, I would do almost anything to get you back by my side but I just keep on laughing hiding my tears in my eyes."
    "Oh fuchshia you leave me breathing like the drowning man," "now that I know that im breaking to pieces i'll pull out my heart and feed it to anyone crying for sympathy."

    "And the further I get from the things that I care about
    The less I care about, how much further away I get...

    I am lost again with everything gone and more alone than I have ever been I expect you to understand to feel it too, But I know that even if you will you cannot ever help me
    nor can I ever help you."
    "So I'll wait for you where I always wait behind the signs that sell the news
    I'll watch for you like yesterday and hope for you, One day that once spent out on me
    And up 'til late I search for you your hat pushed straight
    Away from me your measured step
    Heads up you win, Always too late"

    "Sometime it seems I stopped being myself and without a word turned into somebody else, Full of wishes wants dreams and desires for a life of conceit and deceit and repeat and rewrite. Not sure who I was before this me and I changed
    But I know this me now Is not really the same…"

    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...

    Now that I know that I'm breaking to pieces
    I'll pull out my heart
    And I'll feed it to anyone
    Crying for sympathy
    Crocodiles cry for the love of the crowd
    And the three cheers from everyone
    Dropping through sky
    Through the glass of the roof
    Through the roof of your mouth
    Through the mouth of your eye
    Through the eye of the needle
    It's easier for me to get closer to heaven
    Than ever feel whole again

    I am slowing down
    As the years go by
    I am sinking
    So I trick myself
    Like everybody else

    This top is the place
    Where nobody goes
    You just imagine
    You just imagine it all... "
    Every day I lie here
    And know that it's true
    All I really want is you
    Please come back
    Please come back
    Like all the other ones do...
    Please come back
    All of you

    "Want"

    I'm always wanting more
    Anything I haven't got
    Everything
    I want it all
    I just can't stop
    Planning all my days away
    But never finding ways to stay
    Or ever feel enough today
    Tomorrow must be more

    Drink more dreams more bed more drugs
    More lust more lies more head more love
    More fear more fun more pain more flesh
    More stars more smiles more fame more sex

    But however hard I want
    I know deep down inside
    I'll never really get more hope
    Or any more time
    Any more time
    Any more time
    Any more time

    I want the sky to fall in
    I want lightning and thunder
    I want blood instead of rain
    I want the world to make me wonder
    I want to walk on water
    Take a trip to the moon
    Give me all this and give me it soon

    More drink more dreams more drugs
    More lust more lies more love
    But however hard I want
    I know deep down inside
    I'll never really get more hope
    Or any more time
    Any more time
    Any more time
    Any more time
