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 »

I am slowing down 
As the years go by 
I am sinking 
So I trick myself 
Like everybody else 
The secrets I hide 
Twist me inside 
They make me weaker 

So I trick myself 
Like everybody else 
I crouch in fear and wait 
I'll never feel again 

If only I could remember 
Anything at all
