The Cure

The Cure are an English rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with frontman, vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member. The Cure first began releasing music in the late 1970s with its debut album Three Imaginary Boys (1979); this, along with several early singles, placed the band as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s, the band's increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre. more »

Whisper your name in an empty room
You brush past my skin
As soft as fur
Taking hold

I taste your scent
Distant noises
Other voices
Pounding in my broken head

Commit the sin
Commit yourself
And all the other voices said
Change your mind
You're always wrong

Come around at Christmas
I really have to see you
Smile at me slyly
Another festive compromise

But I live with desertion
And eight million people
Distant noises
Other voices

Pulsing in my swinging arms
Caress the sound
So many dead
And all the other voices said

Change your mind
You're always wrong
