The Cure - From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea lyrics

Your rating:
Every time we do this I fall for her
Wave after wave after wave, it's all for her
I know this can't be wrong I say
And I'll lie to keep her happy 
As long as I know that you know
That today I belong right here with you
right here with you

And so we watch the sun come up from the edge of the deep green sea
And she listens like her head's on fire, like she wants to believe in me
So I try
Put your hands in the sky
We'll be here forever
And we'll never say goodbye

I've never been so colourfully-see-through-head before
I've never been so wonderfully-me-you-want-some-more
And all I want is to keep it like this
You and me alone
A secret kiss
And don't go home
Don't go away
Don't let this end
Please stay
Not just for today

Never, never, never, never, never let me go, she says
Hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
But suddenly she slows and looks down at my breaking face
"Why do you cry?" 
What do I say?
"But it's just rain" I smile
"Brushing my tears away"

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I've cried over you, over you, over you

How much more can we use it up?
Drink it dry?
Take this drug?
Looking for something forever gone
But something we will always want?

"Why, why, why are you letting me go?" she says
I feel you pulling back, I feel you changing shape
And just as I'm breaking free
She hangs herself in front of me
Slips her dress like a flag to the floor
And hands in the sky
Surrenders it all

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I've cried for you

It's always the same
Wake up in the rain
Head in pain
Hung in shame
A different name
Same old game
Love in vain
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away from home again
