Cure, The - Close To Me Lyrics

I've waited hours for this
I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
I never thought that this day would end
I never thought that tonight could ever be
This close to me

Just try to see in the dark
Just try to make it work
To feel the fear before you're here
I make the shapes come much too close
I pull my eyes out
Hold my breath
And wait until I shake

But if I had your faith
Then I could make it safe and clean
If only I was sure
That my head on the door was a dream

I've waited hours for this
I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
I never thought that this day would end
I never thought that tonight could ever be
This close to me

But if I had your face
I could make it safe and clean
If only I was sure
That my head on the door
Was a dream

    This song is every thing: Rhythm. Sexy. Claustrophobic. Chamber play. Wanton. Silly. Boppy. Ataxic. Funny. Dance. Tight. Wonderful. Voluptuous. Dopey. Olymp.

  19. Natasha Scott

    Brilliant band, my best friends sister was a goth and she had a hair do just like Robert's. Gotta love a bit of the 80's. Shit hair but great tunes!

  20. Because the Internet

    I used to go to a hip hop/ r&b club in the early 00s. Downtown Auckland City, New Zealand. Clientele was pretty much exclusively Maori & Pacific Islander. This is the only non urban song in regular rotation and the whole dance floor would go hard.

  21. Fran Dávila

    Persiana Americana xd

  22. Mr Nobody

    I started with this song, year 92, my classmate let me go ... and that's how it stayed :)

    Cose to me .

  29. Lesia Umanets

    I hope Robert's hair spray is water resistant.

  30. Pedro J

    First time I listened to this J had just heard their albums Pornography and it's fair to say I was pretty freaked out. So I had heard Head on the Door was poppies so I listened to it to cheer me up and then the breathing really really scared me. I've come to love it now

  31. Niclas Lbng

    Damn as a Bass Player I can say that this is probably one of the catchiest Bass Lines. Very big Inspiration🙏🏻

    This was the music video that changed everything for me. Never thought I could be so captivated by a band


    you have no idea how long I was looking for this video... I even started doubting my childhood memories, cause nobody else knew what I was talking about when I described this music video XD haaaa... I feel like I have achieved something big -...- thx for uploading it
    XD people may have been confused, cause I thought the video was in black and white and there were cats in it miaowing to the music... and I thought the closet got washed up and fell down a waterfall


    It's like a dream come true when you found the song that you've looking for all over the years.

  65. gindaburra

    "The shaft of light that came from the hallway used to illuminate this patch of wallpaper and it would come to life and prophesise doom to me through the night whenever I put my eyes in that general direction.”
    Robert Smith


    i just had a dream that a huge 100 stories high tsunami came over me, and i tried to hide in an old building.. i woke up and felt that i should watch this vid 2:28 🌊

  67. Manel Navarro

    This song (pure Pop made in Robert Smith), this video (Tim Pope, author of this amazing, wonderful, charming image work) and this record (The Head on the Door, 1985) became The Cure, until then a cult Brit Dark Post-Punk combo, in a mainstream UK 80s Pop band. Soon a stadium band and its leader Robert Smith, a rich, successful and very famous man.

  68. Sergio Moura Silva

    Escutei muito isto aí, na adolescência... bom tempos.

  69. pierjet

    This song makes me miss my red velvet cupcake because it was good as this song


    I do not know why? I get the impression that the song by George Michael; "Faith" is a copy of this theme (Close to me)

  71. Princess Valeta

    Waaaah makes me feel like the first time

  72. John Donwood

    I didn't really like this song for so long since I first heard it a long, long time ago but now I absolutely love it.

  73. Pom Jom Pish

    This is sampled in Lady Sovereign - So Human

  74. aa ramm

    Deutschland 86 brought me here

  75. Baron Warborn

    Iconic! But this is amazing how long they were at it

  76. Mafia Moscoloni

    Señorita a mí me gusta su stayl!

  77. Coldcut333

    I have only just discovered this tune, i've played it at least 30 times in the past 2 days, i feel ashamed of myself for not discovering sooner.

  78. Jean-Marie Lagadec

    Rock en seine 2019 ;)

  79. fuckysucky

    The smoking room

  80. Noe Martinez

    Breathing loudly close to me!

  85. Kenzo Topgay

    I see where Gerard Wayne frm My Chemicals Romance gets his inspiration from.

  86. David Mccormick

    Great tune i think the cure are very unique.its almost like the tune was meant for you.different to other music.i think its for when your in a certain not just a lively mood.

  87. MKN

  88. enicholas cool

  89. rat jarvis

    can't believe robert smith created asmr

    June Asiimwe

    I can't lie, I find Robert's heavy breathing to be weirdly hot for some reason.

  90. Chis English

    The fact this song only has about 24M views says much about the world, it also says 24M people have amazing taste. You are obviously one of them, well done for being amazing.

    Tanya Melon

    @Chis English bts were first compared with the beatles by the usa media, not fans, and the reason for that was because they managed to get so many fans in america even though they are from different country. and from that angle they really are an interesting case and have impact, i think.


    @Tanya Melon it's even more pretenTIOUS to correct peoples spelling errors. Only obnoxious twats do that!

    Tanya Melon

    @Loulabelle thanks for correcting me, i am not from english speaking country


    @Tanya Melon oh god, now I feel like a cow. Sorry for being annoying. Its christmas, its midnight here and I've had too much alcohol!

    Tanya Melon

    @Loulabelle ahaha, noo, your comment was funny :D merry christmas and happy new year!

  91. Ana Fernández
