  • Hello image
    Sing me a line from your favorite song
    Twist and turn
    But you're trapped in the light
    All the directions were wrong

    You'll fall in love with somebody else
    Tonight

    Help yourself
    But tell me the words
    Before you fade away
    You reveal all the secrets
    To remember the end
    And escape someday

    You'll fall in love with somebody else
    Again tonight

    Take a step
    You move in time
    But it's always back...
    The reasons are clear
    Your face is drawn
    And ready for the next attack Writer/s: LAURENCE ANDREW TOLHURST, MATTHIEU A. HARTLEY, ROBERT JAMES SMITH, SIMON GALLUP

  • Anon from UkI think “cryptic” answer from Robert Smith on what this song is about probably also a rather sarcastic remark about the strong similarity of a particular Nirvana song which uses a similar chord structure and lyrical content
  • Mary Smith from Capital Federal, ArgentinaThis song is in the album seventeen seconds, and when robert writted this song he was having couple- problems with mary. Hear the song again and its all about conflicts etc... ``you love someone else´´
  • Charlotte Smith from El Paso, Txwhat does the song mean?
