Adonais Lyrics - The Cure

Review The Song (2)



he breaks the spell still young
awakes from out this dream of life
and leaves us sleeping
storm racked blind consumed
by phantom pale displays of grief
he slips from out this shadow land of pain
where heads grow sorrow grey
and age destroys all hope
and spirits crushed
lament and hide away

but wordless watch the soft sky smile
and breathless hear the low wind sigh
"what death may join no more let life divide"

"dream yourself awake" he calls
"eternity awaits us all
open your eyes and be with me
sponsored links
be with me... "

he breaks the chains still young
dispels the hateful shades of treacherous time
and leaves us sleeping
tortured mute
devoured by ghostly shapes of life
he slips from ties of dust
to be the world we dream he lives
a part of everything we feel
the young and beautiful
and brave of heart

but wordless watch the soft sky smile
and breathless hear the low wind sigh
"what death may join no more let life divide"

"dream yourself awake" he calls
"eternity awaits us all
open your eyes and be with me
be with me... "
"dream yourself awake" he calls
"eternity awaits us all
open your eyes and be with me
forever... "

i've been looking for this song off and on for years, i got it on a b side of the 13th single when it came out years ago.
the haunting tune followed me like a fond memory of an old lover lost fading in and out without warning.

thank you for at least confirming that i'm not crazy and imagined it all.



Beautiful. | Reviewer: Charlie | 9/24/07

This is a really great song, and one of my favorites.
I love the lyrics, and i wonder why they decided to make it a Rarity/B-side instead of putting it on an album (since it only made it to Join The Dots).
Eitherway, it's a wonderful song.
