The Reasons Why Lyrics - The Cure



Review The Song (1)


I wont try to bring you down about my suicide
Got no need to understand about my big surprise
I wont beg to hang you up about my love of life
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I am writing you a letter
Getting better…
Can I see you?
When…
All the lights go out together
Blame the weather
Yeah the cold again
In the darkness for a second
I am sure I see them smiling then
I feel them calling me
Yeah they are calling me…

And I am falling through the stars
You remember now?
Yeah I am falling in their arms
You remember how?
Oh I am falling through the skies
You remember this?
I am falling in their eyes
You remember the kiss?

I wont try to pull you in about my sacrifice
Makes no sense to get upset about the other side
I wont beg to put you out about my right to die
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I am calling you at midnight
Feeling alright… can I tell you?
When?
On the line no sound but my words
Must be night birds on the wire again
In the silence for a second
I am sure I hear them laughing then
I feel them calling me
Yeah they are calling me…

And I am falling through the stars
You remember now?
Yeah I am falling in their arms
You remember how?
Oh I am falling through the skies
You remember this?
I am falling in their eyes
You remember our kiss?

“We know”
They said
“You’re holding on
To nothing left of something gone… ”

“We know”
They said
“In letting go
Of fear and dread
And all you know
You’ll lose the need of certainty
And make-believe eternity
To find the true reality
In beautiful infinity… ”

But I wont try to bring you down about my suicide
If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

I love this song, but it's quite depressing that part of this is actually from a suicide letter that Robert Smith received from a person he knew. That person actually did commit suicide, hence why I said knew. Nice song, nonetheless.
