I've waited hours for this, I made myself so sick
I wish, I'd stayed asleep today
Thought this day would never end
I never thought tonight could ever be so close to me

  • Actually, a pretty damn good version, Kids.
  • I dig it.
  • Not a bad version, Kids.
  • Thought it was better than the original
  • I love this cover more than the original
  • Great cover: the keys annoy me a bit, but the vocals and guitar work are great.
  • I love covers of Cure songs, because as much as I like their music, Robert smith's voice makes cringe, and not in a good way. I feel the same way about Bob Dylan and Neil Young; I respect the songwriter, hate the singer.
  • why, exactly am i listening to a cover station?
  • @indent how can a voice sound emo.. have you heard roberts voice?
