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 »

You shatter me your grip on me a hold on me 
So dull it kills 
You stifle me 
Infectious sense of 
Hopelessness and prayers for rain 
I suffocate 
I breathe in dirt 
And nowhere shines but desolate 
And drab the hours all spent on killing time 
Again all waiting for the rain 

You fracture me your hands on me a touch 
So plain so stale it kills 
You strangle me entangle me 
In hopelessness and prayers for rain 
I deteriorate, I live in dirt and nowhere glows but 
Drearily and tired the hours all spent on killing 
Time again all waiting for the rain

You fracture me, your hands on me, a touch 
So plain so stale it kills 
You strangle me, entangle me 
In hopelessness and prayers for rain 
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
