  • Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am home again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am whole again

    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am young again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am fun again

    However far away
    I will always love you
    However long I stay
    I will always love you
    Whatever words I say
    I will always love you
    I will always love you

    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am free again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am clean again

    However far away
    I will always love you
    However long I stay
    I will always love you
    Whatever words I say
    I will always love you
    I will always love you Writer/s: Boris Williams, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Porl Thompson, Robert James Smith, Roger O'Donnell, Simon Johnathon Gallup

  • Sarah from Yuba City, CaI think Jack Off Jill's cover is the best <3
  • Andy from Lake City, Fldon't flame me but, could this be the warm cocoon of a heroin addiction that he's not sure he can physically continue? the memories he insists he will always cherish. haven't other heroin addicts fallen in love with ideas of just himself, his drug, and his music?
  • Paul from Croydon, PaOK, call me a Jeckyl & Hyde on this but 2 of my favorite Cure songs are Love Song (beautiful!) and Subway Song (heh-heh-heh...)
  • Kailee from Everywhere, CaThis song was going to be used at my wedding. Shortly before my faince passed away but we played it at the funeral and that's when everyone broke down.
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceAfter spending a great deal of the '80s as a cult act and a truly alternatively styled rock band, the Cure finally enjoyed its first major hit with this tune. What's more, the band did so without sacrificing a scrap of Robert Smith's brooding vocal style or the group's signature, melodically mopey sound. It's not so much that this track possessed a particularly pop sound as opposed to, say, "In Between Days" or "Just Like Heaven." But I guess the time was right for the band to register a Top 10 hit on three different charts, including a No. 2 showing on the Billboard Hot 100.
  • Chio from Santiago, Chilethis will be the main song in my wedding
  • Hector from Lake Worth, FlVoltaire also covered this song and did a pretty good job.
  • Lizza from Mexicali, Mexicothe song "friday im in love" comes out in the soundtrack of "50 First Dates" too!
  • Lauren from Pheonix, AzThis is the first Cure song I ever heard, and i've been hooked ever since. Robert gave it to Mary as a wedding present :). The lyrics are pretty self-explanitory. I don't like the 311 version because it sounds emotionless.
  • Dev01d from Wollongong, AustraliaBy far my favourite song by The Cure. The A Perfect Circle cover is pretty awesome too, I have a live version (I think that's the only one) so the quality isn't very good but it still rocks. The should do a studio version.
  • Arthur from Rosamond, CaI heard that RObert Wrote this song for Mary As a wedding present...
  • K from Victorville, CaLol Tolhurst appeared in the video for 311's cover of Lovesong, which, by the way, makes my ears bleed.
  • Shaun from Thunder Bay, CanadaThe snake river conspiracy version of this song owns.... it's much better than the 311 version ever could be. The original is still the best though ;)
  • Lyzette from Moorpark, Ca311's version makes me feel so, so sorry for Robert Smith and the Cure. I can imagine them, holding their head in their hands, wondering how in the world their biggest hit ever got butchered by wannabe reggae posers. (p.s. The Cure ROX!!!)
  • Matt from Millbrae, CaThe Cure rocks, but 311's cover was a bit too rastafarian for me, they didnt capture the essence of the song they way Robert Smith did. it was too laid back.
  • Jonathan from Natchitoches, LaAppeared in Season 1 Episode 9 of Cold Case on CBS. The name of the episode is "Sherry Darlin'."
  • Lance from Amarillo, TxAnberlin also did a version of it.
  • Jacoba from Adelaide, AustraliaRobert Smith wrote this song as a wedding present for his wife.
  • Janelle from New York City, Nyi love this song. the cure are one of my fav's
  • Bex from Grand Rapids, Mi311 also remade this song for Adam Sandler's "50 First Dates". He was at one of their concerts and loved the way their music sounded and asked the band to help out on the soundtrack. Since the movie was taken place in Hawaii, he thought that reggae-island sound would work out awesome on the soundtrack. In my opinion, 311 was the best that Adam could have choose!!!
  • Brian from Paoli, InThe Perfect Circle combo of this song, and Diary of A Madman is great.
  • Brandi from Macon, GaThis song was also done by Snake River Conspiracy.
  • Jacobie from Laghlin, NvJack Off Jill also sings this
