Cut Here Lyrics - The Cure
Review The Song (5)
"So we meet again!" and I offer my hand
All dry and English slow
And you look at me and I understand
Yeah it's a look I used to know
"Three long years... and your favourite man...
Is that any way to say hello?"
And you hold me... like you'll never let me go
"Oh c'mon and have a drink with me
Sit down and talk a while..."
"Oh I wish I could... and I will!
But now I just don’t have the time..."
And over my shoulder as I walk away
I see you give that look goodbye...
I still see that look in your eye...
So dizzy Mr. Busy - Too much rush to talk to Billy
All the silly frilly things have to first get done
In a minute - sometime soon - maybe next time - make it June
Until later...doesn't always come
Until later...doesn't always come.
It's so hard to think "It ends sometime
And this could be the last
I should really hear you sing again
And I should really watch you dance"
Because it's hard to think
"I'll never get another chance
To hold you... to hold you... "
But chilly Mr. Dilly - Too much rush to talk to Billy
All the tizzy fizzy idiot things must get done
In a second - just hang on - all in good time - wont be long
I should've stopped to think - I should've made the time
I could've had that drink - I could've talked a while
I would've done it right - I would've moved us on
But I didn't - now it's all too late
It's over... over
And you're gone...
I miss you I miss you I miss you
I miss you I miss you I miss you so much
But how many times can I walk away and wish "If only..."
But how many times can I talk this way and wish "If only..."
Keep on making the same mistake
Keep on aching the same heartbreak
I wish "If only..."
But "If only...."
Is a wish too late...

One of their best | Reviewer: daniel | 10/5/12
I'm glad this song made their best of compilation because it's an amazing song and one of my fav Cure songs. I didn't know what it was about till reading these other reviews. Robert Smith is such a brilliant writer and performer, he knows the human emotion and how to express it like a true poet vocalist.
Cut Here | Reviewer: Dudeguything | 8/16/07
Beautiful song inspired by thoughts after the suicide of Smith's friend. It boggles me that this song never really made the mainstream. While I don't usually listen to that kind of music, this song is very radio-friendly and I don't see why it wouldn't be one of their hits.
Interestingly enough, "Cut Here" is an anagram of "The Cure", and was meant to be the last song they ever wrote.
Beautiful song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/16/07
This is a beautiful, and heart wrenching song Robert Smith wrote about friend Billy Mackenzie of Associates after taking his own life in January 1997. Siouxsie also wrote a song for Billy, 'Say' released by The Creatures.
very good | Reviewer: rikki | 3/4/07
this is the first and only cure song i have heard, but i absolutely love it. the lyrics very effectively mix the confusion of dealing with regret and at the same time needing to move on. i like it!
