Cure, The - A Letter To Elise Lyrics




Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
Every way to smile
Forget
And make-believe we never needed
Any more than this
Any more than this

Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
I know I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire
The way they should
The way the blue could pull me in
If they only would
If they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else
That hides away
From me and you
There're worlds to part
With aching looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands can make
Oh I just take as much as you can throw
And then throw it all away
Oh I throw it all away
Like throwing faces at the sky
Like throwing arms round
Yesterday
I stood and stared
Wide-eyed in front of you
And the face I saw looked back
The way I wanted to
But I just can't hold my tears away
The way you do

Elise believe I never wanted this
I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
I thought you were the girl I always dreamed about
But I let the dream go
And the promises broke
And the make-believe ran out...

Oh Elise
It doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
Every way to smile
Forget
And make-believe we never needed
Any more than this
Any more than this

And every time I try to pick it up
Like falling sand
As fast as I pick it up
It runs away through my clutching hands
But there's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else
I can really do
At all...

    Conheci essa música hoje, madrugada do dia 15 de dezembro de 2019. Este ano foi duro de lidar. Entre outras coisas que aconteceram, eu tive que terminar um relacionamento e essa letra me cortou o peito pois me vi nela. Ao mesmo tempo ela me é reconfortante, já escutei quase 10x até agora. Vou guardar este comentário aqui pra futuramente voltar e, espero, sorrir ao lê-lo.

    Uma Carta Para Elise
    Oh, Elise, não importa o que você diga
    Eu apenas não consigo estar aqui o dia todo
    Como continuar agindo da mesma
    Forma que agimos
    Todo jeito de sorrir
    Esqueça
    E finja que nós nunca precisamos
    De nada mais do que isto
    De nada mais do que isto
    Oh, Elise, não importa o que você faça
    Eu sei que eu nunca estarei realmente dentro de você
    Para fazer seus olhos pegarem fogo
    Do jeito que eles deveriam
    Do jeito que o azul poderia me puxar para dentro
    Se eles apenas conseguissem
    Se eles apenas conseguissem
    Pelo menos eu perderia essa sensação de sentir algo mais
    Que se esconde
    De mim e de você
    Há mundos que se separam
    Com olhares dolorosos e corações partidos
    E todas as preces que suas mãos conseguem fazer
    Oh, eu apenas pego o tanto que você consegue jogar
    E depois eu jogo tudo fora
    Oh, eu jogo tudo fora
    Como jogando rostos para o céu
    Como jogando os braços em volta
    Ontem
    Eu parei e te encarei
    Olhos abertos na sua frente
    E o rosto que eu vi me retribuiu o olhar
    Do jeito que eu queria
    Mas eu não consigo segurar minhas lágrimas
    Do jeito que você faz
    Elise, acredite, eu nunca quis isto
    Eu pensei que desta vez eu cumpriria todas as minhas promessas
    Eu pensava que você era a garota que eu sempre sonhei
    Mas eu deixei este sonho partir
    E as promessas se quebraram
    E o faz-de-conta acabou
    Então, Elise
    Não importa o que você diga
    Eu apenas não consigo estar aqui o dia todo
    Como continuar agindo da mesma
    Forma que agimos
    Todo jeito de sorrir
    Esqueça
    E finja que não precisamos
    De nada mais do que isto
    De nada mais do que isto
    E todas as vezes que eu tento levantar isso
    Como areia movediça
    Tão rápido quanto eu pego
    Isso cai através de minhas mãos trêmulas
    Mas não há mais nada que eu possa realmente fazer
    Não há mais nada que eu realmente consiga fazer
    Não há mais nada que eu realmente consiga fazer realmente

    Great song, I hope he sent the letter, so Elise knew what was bloody going on. In my experience he probably didn't.

  90. Shrivash Wahengbam

    This song made my day🙏

  91. Bilal Fatihah

    True story. 1996 Im in college in the Mac lab and the "information superhighway" was new. So im in this chat room (Wow, people from all over the country talking in here at the same time?? amazing) and I see a name in the guest list, Elise. So I type to her "oh Elise it doesnt matter what you say" .... and she replies "I just can't stay here every yesterday" Holy shit!! she knows The Cure. We chatted every night. Sent emails (new at the time), eventually led to snail mail and photographs of each other, eventually led to phone calls (i was in Lancaster,PA she was in college in LA) ..remember, this was ALL before online dating. So we decided to meet up during winter break after communicating for 3 months (Actually, I graduated that Dec.96) I flew out there and spent a week with her at her home in Mesa, AZ and she came back with me to philly for a week. We fell deep for each other, but realised our real lives were 3000 miles apart, so it never went further. Thinking back, I dont believe in fate but it's amazing how it all happend because of this song. She was beautiful and I miss her.
