Lyrics

I've waited hours for this, I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
I never thought that this day would end
I never thought tonight could ever be this close to me

I've waited hours for this, I've made myself so sick

I never thought tonight could ever be this close to me

I can't find this remix anywhere. It just says by The Cure. SO much happier than the original.
Ditto with the gummi bear interaction. Thoughti was the only one into it.
I only hope that the miley Cyrus jayzee version is released when I am dead. You know it's inevitable. Today's music sucks.

Great memories...
I like to make my Gummi Bears have sex with each other before I eat them...
Who did it grew up with the cure!!! Love them always will...
I almost accidentally pressed the downvote button bc the thumbs are swirling around so much :)
Because of this song I took up the flutes.... now watch me shines.. lol
I really like the Cure but I personally like this a lot more than the original. I was never keen on Close To Me until this remix. This is great.
Best remix ever
Mixed Up is a great remix album.
I waited hours for..... This song to be played! :)
Im just thankful that my girls like good music. I get to listen to the cure, beatles, mana, CCR, etc, on the car stereo instead of j. Beaver, minaj, etc....
The cure is the cure when you need to be cured from what hurts inside your soul

I feel like I've heard this sampled in a videogame... . . . w e i r d . I like this song though. :)
The cure u r so close to me :)

Awesome remix. I actually like it more than the original!
Hell jeah!

I also agree that this is an an excellent remix. They added something to one of their best songs without overdoing it. Just right for me.
Incredible. A great remix that doesn't distract from the original.
I think the cure is very under-apprec i a t e d by most people. But not by me... THe more I listen to them, the better it gets.
OMG!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! Love it. Love it. Love it!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

"Don't have mercy on my soul. This jam rocks my dance floor. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!"
serious goose bumping
a work of genius!
ahhh Robert Smith...
leehoward
this IS A great remix, you guys1
cool that I was the one who actually read "The Stranger" by Albert Camus.
this song reminds me of my brother...si n c e it was his cassette...a n d he introduced me to The Cure by playing the track "Killing An Arab" from "Boys Don't Cry"...back when it was first released in the 80's.
one of my very favorites songs of all time...
to whomever wonders who is ripping off who (Lady Sovereign... w h o e v e r she may be or The Cure) Research shows that this song was released in 1985, the same year Ms. Sovereign was born. So I guess if indeed one song was ripped off from another, I guess it was the Lady who did the ganking.
I'm diggin this remix
im.mikeb
love this remix
sounds so... jazzy. its weird. (like most of the cure songs) :D

This song does NOT sound like the original. I want my money back.

Robert Smith is a genius!! Listen and make your own opinion! It's art!
probably, loki. every song is about drugs.
Cool song but what the heck is Smith talking about? Is he coming down off of heroine? Is that what the I've waited hours for this and made myself so sick reference about?

Dunno cool song though....

Why is this on my Who station?
I wish I could've lived through this era. Music seemed so much better.
shealy430
yep the year was 1989 there i was a young punk with eyes wide open to mowhawks the sex pistols and of course the crazy but cool sounds of the cure.
