A Forest

  • Come closer and see
    See into the trees
    Find the girl
    If you can
    Come closer and see
    See into the dark
    Just follow your eyes
    Just follow your eyes

    I hear her voice
    Calling my name
    The sound is deep
    In the dark
    I hear her voice
    And start to run
    Into the trees
    Into the trees

    Into the trees
    Suddenly I stop
    But I know it's too late
    I'm lost in a forest
    All alone
    The girl was never there
    It's always the same
    I'm running towards nothing
    Again and again and again and again Writer/s: Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Matthieu Aiden Hartley, Simon Johnathon Gallup

  • Patricia from New York, NyActually, Simon Gallup, bass, was the one who shouted "F--k Robert Palmer, F--k Rock and Roll." And according to an account in the Cure's bio "10 Imaginary Years" the roadies for Robert Palmer responded by throwing the Cure's amps off the stage.
