Good song to think about the good times before your GF left you for some dude you know and you can't get the idea of her doing that thing you thought was special during the intimate times.

I love The Cure. I like every single song only 1 or 2 exeptions but this is nothing in comparison to all the great songs they have THE CURE is in my top 5 bands of all time.

Has anyone else ever liked a song so much they wanted to wrench it out of the distant past and scorch it into the heavens so everyone knows its preciousness ?

Leave it to Robert Smith to make your heart break in the best of ways.

Always moved time and again by The Cure. Usually lifts my mood. I've heard a few say their music makes them sad, and while I understand the music is melancholy, it's the opposite for me. Lovely!

No one can touch Robert Smith lyrically. A true legend in his own time.

Pictures of you & Elise are two of the three best Cure song. Standing on a beach is the third. Easily 10 ten songs of all time!
