Cure, The - This Is A Lie Lyrics




How each of us decides
I've never been sure
The part we play
The way we are
How each of us denies any other way in the world
Why each of us must choose
I've never understood
One special friend
One true love
Why each of us must lose everyone else in the world

However unsure
However unwise
Day after day play out our lives
However confused
Pretending to know to the end

But this isn't truth this isn't right
This isn't love this isn't life this isn't real
This is a lie

How each of us believes
I've never really known
In heaven unseen and hell unknown
How each of us dreams to understand anything at all
Why each of us decides
I've never been sure
The part we take
The way we are
Why each of us denies every other way in the world

However unsure
However unwise
Day after day play out our lives
However confused
Pretending to know to the end

But this isn't truth this isn't right
This isn't love this isn't life this isn't real
This is a lie
This isn't truth this isn't right
This isn't love this isn't life this isn't real
This is a lie

  5. Dario Wirtha

    Worst album is 4:13 dream

    Club Head

    It’s not the worst album it’s just different.I admire Robert for doing what he wants .He wasn’t born to please man but to learn and grow as a man .

    MephProduction

    @Club Head but it's not different, every song could have easily been on a previous cure album. overall it's a good record.. the worse is obviously The Top or TIB

  6. Calldy uk

    I'm pleased at reading the comments, It shows you cant always go buy polls, WMS is always at the bottom of CURE Albums, Half of WMS is insanely brilliant. This song is one of favourite CURE songs of all time, and their r plenty more on WMS,

  19. Adrien Rouzet

    this album is sooo underrated, sounds different from the others ... there's something unique that makes me shiver 

    Leise Knowles

    totally agree - just saw some bollocks that said this is the worse The Cure album - its my number 2 after the top - social medial conneries - french for bullshit

    Sean Ping

    I feel that way about THE TOP

    Sean Ping

    @Leise Knowles I wish he would play the Top live I wanna see how he tackles Dressing Up nowadays lol Its the most unhinged wacky wonderful album

    MephProduction

    @Sean Ping They did the whole Top album a couple of year ago as part of another trilogy tour (with head on the door and Kiss)

  20. brandonedge

    amen. too bad bob had to act like he didn't really mean it when asked in an interview

  21. Derek Hunter

    To live life with the utmost certainty, about anything, is a lie. To choose one lover, at the exclusion of anyone else, is a lie. To choose one belief system, is a lie. To pretend to know ... about anything ... is a lie.

  22. Amber Barnes

    I just love the instrumental in this song. It's beautiful. The lyrics are great too. They inspire story ideas. <3 Beautiful song.

    Leo1508 L

    Sadest ideas to me :'/

    K.A. Smithereens

    Absolutely, beautiful string music.....It does something to the soul. Been listening since junior high...Out of school for 20 years now. :)

  23. lipstickandlace1235

    This is by far the most beautiful song they've released, and that's saying something!
