Album: DisintegrationReleased: 1989
This features a hidden lyric from another Cure track. The lyric, not included in the official lyrics, comes from the 1982 song "Cold," which originally appeared on the album Pornography. Lead singer Robert Smith whispers "your name like ice into my heart" before the last verse.
In a 1989 interview with Music Box TV, vocalist Robert Smith said the song was about "someone that you meet and you haven't seen for a long time. And you used to have very strong feelings for and you don't anymore, you suddenly realize... It's a horrible sensation."
The song was not included on original vinyl pressings of Disintergration and originally was included as a bonus track.
