The Cure
The Show
open:
i really don't know what i'm doing here 
i really think i should've gone to bed tonight but... 
just one drink 
and there're some people to meet you 
i think that you'll like them 
i have to say we do 
and i promise in less than an hour we will honestly go 
now why don't i just get you another 
while you just say hello... 

yeah just say hello... 

so i'm clutching it tight 
another glass in my hand 
and my mouth and the smiles 
moving up as i stand up 
too close and too wide 
and the smiles are too bright 
and i breathe in too deep 
and my head's getting light 
but the air is getting heavier and it's closer 
and i'm starting to sway 
and the hands on all my shoulders don't have names 
and they won't go away 
so here i go 
here i go again... 

falling into strangers 
and it's only just eleven 
and i'm staring like a child 
until someone slips me heaven 
and i take it on my knees 
just like a thousand times before 
and i get transfixed 
that fixed 
and i'm just looking at the floor 
just looking at the floor 
yeah i look at the floor 

and i'm starting to laugh 
like an animal in pain 
and i've got blood on my hands 
and i've got hands in my brain 
and the first short retch 
leaves me gasping for more 
and i stagger over screaming 
on my way to the floor 
and i'm back on my back 
with the lights and the lies in my eyes 
and the colour and the music's too loud 
and my head's all the wrong size 
so here i go 
here i go again... 

yeah i laugh and i jump 
and i sing and i laugh 
and i dance and i laugh 
and i laugh and i laugh 
and i can't seem to think 
where this is 
who i am 
why i'm keeping this going 
keep pouring it out 
keep pouring it down 
and the way the rain comes down hard 
that's the way i feel inside... 

i can't take it anymore 
this it i've become 
this is it like i get 
when my life's going numb 
i just keep moving my mouth 
i just keep moving my feet 
i say i'm loving you to death 
like i'm losing my breath 
and all the smiles that i wear 
and all the games that i play 
and all the drinks that i mix 
and i drink until i'm sick 
and all the faces that i make 
and all the shapes that i throw 
and all the people i meet 
and all the words that i know 
makes me sick to the heart 
oh i feel so tired... 

and the way the rain comes down hard 
that's how i feel inside... 

high:
Do do do do do do 
Do do do do do do 
When I see you sky as a kite 
As high as I might 
I can't get that high 
And how you move 
The way you burst the clouds 
It makes me want to try 

And when I see you sticky as lips 
As licky as trips 
I can't lick that far 
But when you pout 
The way you shout out loud 
It makes me want to start 
And when I see you 
happy as a girl 
That swims in a world 
of magic show 
It makes me bite 
my fingers through 
To think I could've let you go 

And when I see you 
Take the same sweet steps 
You used to take 
I say I'll keep on holding you 
My arms so tight 
I'll never let you slip away 

Do do do do do do (x 7) 
Da da da da da da 

And when I see you 
kitten as a cat (ow) 
Yeah as smitten as that (ow) 
I can't get that small 
The way you fur 
The how you purr 
It makes me want to paw you all 
And when I see you (do do do do) 
happy as a girl 
That lives in a world (do do do 
do) of make-believe (do do do do) 
It makes me pull my hair all out 
To think I could've let you leave 

And when I see you 
Take the same sweet steps 
You used to take I know 
I'll keep on holding you 
In arms so tight 
They'll never let you go (never let you go) 

pictures of you:
i've been looking so long at these 
pictures of 
you that i almost beleive that they're real i've 
been living so long with my pictures of you that 
i almost believe that the pictures are all i can 
feel 

remembering you standing quiet in the rain as 
i ran to your heart to be near and we kissed as 
the sky fell in holding you close how i always 
held close in your fear remembering you 
running soft through the night you were bigger 
and brighter and wider than snow and 
screamed at the make-believe screamed at the 
sky and you finally found all your courage to 
let it all go 

remembering you fallen into my arms crying 
for the death of your heart you were stone 
white so delicate lost in the cold you were 
always so lost in the dark remembering you 
how you used to be slow drowned you were 
angels so much more than everything oh hold 
for the last time then slip away quietly open 
my eyes but i never see anything 

if only i had thought of the right words i could 
have hold on to your heart if only i'd thought of 
the right words i wouldn't be breaking apart all 
my pictures of you 

Looking So long at these pictures of you but i 
never hold on to your heart looking so long for 
the words to be true but always just breaking 
apart my pictures of you 

there was nothing in the world that i ever 
wanted more than to feel you deep in my heart 
there was nothing in the world that i ever 
wanted more than to never feel the breaking 
apart all my pictures of you 

lullaby:
on candystripe legs spiderman comes 
softly through the shadow of the evening sun 
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead 
looking for the victim shivering in bed 
searching out fear in the gathering gloom and 
suddenly! a movement in the corner of the 
room! and there is nothing i can do when i 
realise with freight that the spiderman is having 
me for dinner tonight 

quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps 
closer now closer to the foot of the bed and 
softer than shadow and quicker than flies his 
arms are all around me and his tongue in my 
eyes "be still be calm be quiet now my precious 
boy don't struggle like that or i will only love 
you more for it's much too late to get away or 
turn on the light the spiderman is having you 
for dinner tonight" 

and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand 
million shivering furry holes and i know that in 
the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold 
and the spiderman is always hungry... 

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 
You 
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 
Alone above a raging sea 
That stole the only girl I loved 
And drowned her deep inside of me 

You 
Soft and only 
You 
Lost and lonely 
You 
Just like heaven 

night like this:
Say goodbye on a night 
like this 
If it's the last thing we ever do 
You never looked as lost as this 
Sometimes it doesn't even look like you 
It goes dark 
It goes darker still 
Please stay 
But I watch you like I'm made of stone 
As you walk away 

I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night 
A witch hunt for another girl 
For always and ever is always for you 
Your trust 
The most gorgeously stupid thing I ever cut in the world 

Say hello on a day like today 
Say it everytime you move 
The way that you look at me now 
Makes me wish I was you 
It goes deep 
It goes deeper still 
This touch 
And the smile and the shake of your head 

I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night 
Can't stand here like this anymore 
For always and ever is always for you 
I want it to be perfect 
Like before 
I want to change it all 

I want to change 

trust:
there's no-one left in the world 
that i can hold onto 
there is really no-one left at all 
there is only you 
and if you leave me now 
you leave all that we were 
undone 
there is really no-one left 
you are the only one 

and still the hardest part for you 
to put your trust in me 
i love you more than i can say 
why won't you just believe? 

doing the unstruck:
it's a perfect day for letting go 
for setting fire to bridges 
boats 
and other dreary worlds you know 
let's get happy! 
it's a perfect day for making out 
to wake up with a smile without a doubt 
to burst grin giggle bliss skip jump and sing and shout 
let's get happy! 

but it's much to late you say 
for doing this now 
we should have done it then 
well it just goes to show 
how wrong you can be 
and how you really should know 
that it's never too late 
to get up and go 

it's a perfect day for kiss and swell 
for rip-zipping button-popping kiss and well... 
there's loads of other stuff can make you yell 
let's get happy! 
it's a perfect day for doing the unstuck 
for dancing like you can't hear the beat 
and you don't give a further thought 
to things like feet 
let's get happy! 

but it's much too late you say 
for doing this now 
we should have done it then 
well it just goes to show 
how wrong you can be 
and how you really should know 
that it's never too late 
to get up and go 

kick out the gloom 
kick out the blues 
tear out the pages with all the bad news 
pull down the mirrors and pull down the walls 
tear up the stairs and tear up the floors 
oh just burn down the house! 
burn down the street! 
turn everything red and the beat is complete 
with the sound of your world 
going up in fire 
it's a perfect day to throw back your head 
and kiss it all goodbye 

it's a perfect day for getting old 
forgetting all your worries 
life 
and everything that makes you cry 
let's get happy! 
it's a perfect day for dreams come true 
for thinking big 
and doing anything you want to do 
let's get happy! 

but it's much too late you say 
for doing this now 
we should have done it then 
well it just goes to show 
how wrong you can be 
and how you really should know 
that it's never too late 
to get up and go 

kick out the gloom 
kick out the blues 
tear out the pages with all the bad news 
pull down the mirrors and pull down the walls 
tear up the stairs and tear up the floors 
oh just burn down the house! 
burn down the street! 
turn everything red and the dream is complete 
with the sound of your world 
going up in fire 
it's a perfect day to throw back your head 
and kiss it all goodbye 

friday i'm in love:

I don't care if monday's blue 
Tuesday's grey and wednesday too 
Thursday i don't care about you 
It's friday i'm in love 

Monday you can fall apart 
Tuesday wednesday break my heart 
Thursday doesn't even start 
It's friday i'm in love 

Saturday wait 
And sunday always comes too late 
But friday never hesitate... 

I don't care if monday's black 
Tuesday wednesday heart attack 
Thursday never looking back 
It's friday i'm in love 

Monday you can hold your head 
Tuesday wednesday stay in bed 
Or thursday watch the walls instead 
It's friday i'm in love 

Saturday wait 
And sunday always comes too late 
But friday never hesitate... 

Dressed up to the eyes 
It's a wonderful surprise 
To see your shoes and your spirits rise 
Throwing out your frown 
And just smiling at the sound 
And as sleek as a shriek 
Spinning round and round 
Always take a big bite 
It's such a gorgeous sight 
To see you eat in the middle of the night 
You can never get enough 
Enough of this stuff 
It's friday 
I'm in love 

inbetween days:
Yesterday I got so old 
I felt like I could die 
Yesterday I got so old 
It made me want to cry 
Go on go on 
Just walk away 
Your choice is made 
Go on go on 
And disappear 
Go on go on 
Away from here 

And I know I was wrong 
When I said it was true 
That it couldn't be me and be her 
Inbetween without you 
Without you 

Yesterday I got so scared 
I shivered like a child 
Yesterday away from you 
It froze me deep inside 
Come back come back 
Don't walk away 
Come back come back 
Come back today 
Come back come back 
Why can't you see 
Come back come back 
Come back to me 

And I know I was wrong 
When I said it was true 
That it couldn't be me and be her 
Inbetween without you 
Without you 

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 
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... 

never enough:
However much i push it down 
It's never enough 
However much i push it around 
It's never enough 
However much i make it out 
It's never enough 
Never enough 
However much i do....... 

However big i ever feel 
It's never enough 
Whatever i do to make it real 
It's never enough 
In any way i try to speak 
Never enough 
Never enough 
However much i try to speak 
It's never enough 
However much i'm falling down 
It's never enough 
However much i'm falling out 
It's...never...enough 
Whatever smile i smile the most 
Never enough 
Never enough 
However i smile i smile the most 

So let me hold it up just one more go 
Holding it over just once more 
One more time to fill it up 
One more time to kill 
Whatever i do it's never enough 
It's never enough! 

However much i push it down 
It's never enough 
However much i push it around 
It's never enough

It's never enough 
It's never, it's never enough 

cut:
If only you'd never speak to me 
The way that you do 
If only you'd never speak like that 
It's like listening to 
A breaking heart 
A falling sky 
Fire go out and friendship die 
I wish you felt the way that i still do 

If only you'd never look at me 
The way that you do 
If only you'd never look like that 
When i look at you 
I see face like stone 
Eyes of ice 
Mouth so sweetly telling lies 
I wish you felt the way that i still do 
The way that i still do 
But you don't 
You don't feel anymore 
You don't care anymore 
It's all gone 

If only you'd never pull from me 
The way that you do 
If only you'd never pull like that 
When i'm with you 
I feel hopeless hands helplessly 
Pulling you back close to me 
I wish you felt the way that i still do 
The way that i still do 

If only you'd ever speak to me 
The way you once did 
Look at me the way you once did 
Pull to me the way you once did 
But you don't 
You don't feel anymore 
You don't care anymore 
It's all gone 
It's all gone 

end:
I think i've reached that point 
Where giving up and going on 
Are both the same dead end to me 
Are both the same old song 

I think i've reached that point 
Where every wish has come true 
And tired disguised oblivion 
Is everything i do 

Please stop loving me 
PLease stop loving me 
I am none of these things 

I think i've reached that point 
Where all the things you have to say 
And hopes for something more from me 
Are just games to pass the time away 

Please stop loving me 
Please stop loving me 
I am none of these things 

I think i've reached that point 
Where every word that you write 
Of every blood dark sea 
And every soul black night 
And every dream you dream me in 
And every perfect free from sin 
And burning eyes 
And hearts on fire 
Are just the same old song 

Please stop loving me 
Please stop loving me 
I am none of these things 
I am none of these things 

I am none of these things
