This girl has got a smile That can make me cry This girl just burns with love She's burning burning deep inside Night time night time Sets my house on fire I'll turn into the melting man I'll lose my life To feel I feel desire Oh I should feel Like a polar bear... It's impossible She flies outside this cage Singing girl mad words I keep her dark thoughts deep inside As black as stone And mad as birds Wild wild wild And never turn away Sends me all her love She sends me everything She sends me everywhere Oh I could be A polar bear... But it's impossible I try to talk The sky goes red I forget So fill in my head With some of this Some of that Some of every word she says Oh I should be A polar bear... But it's impossible

Samantha from Chicago, IlActually, the title is a reference to the poem "Love in the Asylum" by Dylan Thomas about a young man in an insane asylum who falls in love with a girl "mad as birds,"
Sherpa from Rotterdam, NetherlandsThe polar bear refers to the song "Eisbär", recorded by the fabulous Swiss Neue Welle band "Grauzone". "Ich möchte ein Eisbär sein, im kalten Polar, dann müsste ich nie mehr weinen, alles wär so klar" Translated "I wish I was a polar bear, on the freezing pole, I would never have to cry again, everything would be so clear."
But Robert notices that it is impossible to be a polar bear.
Miras from Astana, KazakhstanThe mental girl (name of the song) is also mentioned in the lyrics of another Cure song 'Burn' (The Crow soundtrack). One of my favourites, both song and the picture.
don't look, don't look the shadows breathe whispering me away from you don't wake at night to watch her sleep you know that you will always see this trembling, adored, toussled bird-mad girl
Miracle, The Cure fan
Ali from Wine, Cawell. id sure love to be that girl. this song actually isnt that bad. its good, especially since its one of Roberts early works; the background and melody are fine, and i think its just not too popular, considering the name and the thought on the song. and whats with the polar bear anyway? i just wish i could read that article.
