"Show me, show me, 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 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 lonely You Lost and lonely You Just like heaven

Mike from Norman, OkI always thought that it was like the Edgar Alan Poe poem Anabelle Lee.
Jill from Baltimore, MarylandI love, love, love this song. I have heard it a thousand plus times and never tire of it. I have told my girls that if I ever die and they hear this song, I want them to think of me.
April from Houston, TxMagnus in Stockholm,Sweden is incorrect. It is about one night of pure love being worth the pain after wards. If you read their 2 official biographies *one where Robert & the band helped the author write the book like a diary with every member having their say. It covered the first 10 years of the cure's career all the way back to grade school. (The books title is "Ten Imaginary Years"-Robert wrote the book with the help of a friend & it was released in 1988-It is the Official biography. His name is on the cover as the author, another good source is another authorized biography of The Cure-Never Enough by Jeff Apter in 2005, another good book is "The Arm Chair Guide to The Cure" that notes who is on every song,vinyl/cassette/cd/dvd, the band explains what the songs meant or why they were written ext.)And the girl in the video is his girlfriend soon to be wife. He had been in a relationship Mary since age 14. He met her at a school dance and despite what Magnus writes, Robert & Mary did not lose their virginity together the first time they met. He wanted her at first b/c she was the prettiest and most popular girl at the all girls school next to the all boys school Robert attended. He wanted to prove he could get her because all the boys wanted her. But he fell in love.
Betto from Ciudad De México, MexicoEsta canción me recuerda a una novia que tuve que murió. El mar significa la muerte. La muerte se llevó a la única chica que amé y la ahogó tan dentro de mí. Lamento no haberme dado el tiempo para demostrarle cuánto la amé.
Lily from London, United KingdomMy favourite song in the World, has been since I was 14. We're having it as our first dance song at our wedding.

Danielle from New York, NyAnyway this is def. one of the most awesomest songs ever...I am getting married in December and I want this to be my wedding song, the lyrics are beautiful and the mood is fun....it really makes me think about what it was like when I first started dating my fiance..like the excitment of those beginning months in a relationship where u get the butterflies = ) Anyway any suggestions on the best wedding song version of this song. The original is perfect but we need to sllooowwww dance to it
Jazmin from San Bernardino, Cathis song is.. just... i dont know it just get me into it that song is so original, its about him and his girlfriend, its just sad when he notices shes gone i just cry in taht part, but i loved it , it rocks!
Greg from Christiansted, United StatesKatie Melua has done a cover of this song and it is fantastic. Her soft guitar work combined with her rich smoky voice make this a must hear. Greg, st. croix virgin islands
Brian from Rochester, NyThe bands Taking Back Sunday and Gatsbys American Dream do fairly descent covers of this song, the Taking Back Sunday Version is pretty rare and an all acoustic version.
Scott from Philadelphia, Pa1- There is a new movie with the same name and a new slow version of the song. It's not too bad. 2- I have also heard Robert SMith himself admit to "altering the truth." 3- I seem to remember hearing something about this song being about a girlfriend commiting suicide and the boyfirend wishing he did, too; because he missed her so much. We'll never know.
Helen from A Two Stroy Oxo CubeI love this song, 'cos it was feature don Donnie Darko one of my fave movies, love it love it love it love it and and love the band<3
Cameron from Mesquite, TxThe best cover of this song was done by Dinosaur Jr., without a doubt.
Amanda from Port-of-spain, OtherThis is the kind of song women wish their guys would write for them. He obviously doesn't have to be singer, just the thought of such a hopeless passion penned is enough to woo me out of my shoes.
Black from Toronto, CanadaThis song is what got me into The Cure!
Craig from Dunedin, New ZealandLots of metaphors in this one,sounds like a ficticious situation. Sounds like his girlfriend jumped....maybe after 17? years of marriage he secretly wishes she would jump!!!
Nick from San Francisco, CaAnother excellent cover of this song is done by a gal named Charlotte Martin. It's a piano solo and really captures the essence of the song.
Jerry from Palm Harbor, FlGoldfinger does a decent cover of this song.
Jon-michael from Augusta, Georgia, Gawell, i love the video and the song.!!
Zach from Norman, Oki once saw a cure tribute concert where AFI played an amazing cover of this song
Josh from Phoenix, Azthis is my favorite song
J from New Cumberland, PaRobert Smith is also a well known liar. The song is about his wife, then girlfriend.... he had been dating her since he was fifteen... and while he admits the song, and the video are based on real-life occurances, he DID make up the part about meeting Marry at beachy head...
Magnus from Stockholm, SwedenThe song is about the first time he met his wife - to be.. That time he met a mysterious girl and spent the night with her on a cliff watching the ocean. In the morning she was gone and Smith walked home alone and wrote the song. TEN - FIFTEEN years later (!) she pops up meeting him somewhere and later they marry.. This is a wellknown songfact and i actually recall hearing Smith mention the thing on an interview somewhere (:
