This is the b-side to one of The Cure's newest singles, "The Perfect Boy" (a great song on its own). I found the lyrics to be specially significant, and the music is beautiful and uplifiting too.

WITHOUT YOU

ANYTHING AT ALL

BUT YOU KNOW I CAN’T STOP

IT’S LIFE ON THE MOON

ALL THIS TALK OF GIVING UP

LIFE IS TOO SHORT

FOR IT NOT TO BE TRUE

THE BEST IDEA I THINK

IS FOR ME TO GO MY WAY…

ANYTHING AT ALL

BUT DON’T WANT ME TO CHANGE

HARD TO UNDERSTAND

WHEN A PLAN IS THIS STRANGE

AND LIFE IS TOO BIG

Yeah IT HAS TO BE TRUE

Oh THE BEST IDEA I THINK

IS FOR ME TO GO MY WAY…

IF ALL THAT YOU WANT

IS HOW IT COULD BE

YOU MAY AS WELL GO NOW

THERE’S NO WAIT AND SEE…

ANYTHING AT ALL

BUT DON’T ASK ME TO FADE

YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT

I CAN’T EVER PLAY SAFE

LIFE IS TOO REAL

FOR IT NOT TO BE TRUE

Oh THE BEST IDEA I THINK

IS FOR ME TO GO MY WAY…

IF ALL THAT YOU WANT

IS HOW IT COULD BE

YOU MAY AS WELL GO

NO THERE’S NO WAIT AND SEE

IT WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG

IF ALL I WON’T GIVE

IS ALL THAT YOU WANT

IT’S A STRANGE WAY

TO LIVE AND LET LIVE

WHEN ALL THAT YOU DO

IS MEASURE ME UP

FALLING SHORTER THAN YOU

IT’S A STRANGE WAY TO LOVE

ALL THIS ‘BE AS I WANT’

WHEN I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW

I CAN’T FADE

CHANGE

OR STOP

SO ANYTHING AT ALL

BUT YOU KNOW I WON’T CHOOSE

IF ALL YOU COULD WIN

IS ALL I WOULD LOSE

WHEN LIFE IS TOO RARE

Yeah IT HAS TO BE TRUE

THE BEST IDEA I THINK

IS FOR ME TO GO MY WAY…

…without you

I like this one by The Cure:

Gone!

oh you know how it is

wake up feeling blue

and everything that could be wrong is

including you

black clouds and rain and pain in your head

and all you want to do is stay in bed

but if you do that you'll be missing the world

because it doesn't stop turning whatever you heard

if you do that you'll be missing the world

you have to get up get out and get gone!

yeah you know how it is

wake up feeling green

sick as a dog and six times as mean

you don't want to sing you don't want to play

you don't want to swing you don't want to sway

all you want to do is nothing

on a day like today

but if you do that you'll be missing the world

because it doesn't stop turning whatever you heard

if you do that you'll be missing the world

you have to get up get out and get gone!

yeah get up get out and have some fun

you have to get up get out and get gone!

yeah get up get out and get it on

get up get out and get gone!

you have to get up get out and get living

yeah this is really it...

so you know how it is

wake up feeling grey

nothing much to think and nothing much to say

don't want to talk don't want to try

don't want to think don't want to know

who what where when or why...

oh but you do that and you're missing the world

yeah it's happening right now whatever you heard

you do that and you're missing the world

you have to get up get out and get gone!

yeah get up get out and have some fun

you have to get up get out and get gone!

yeah get up get out and get it on

get up get out and get gone!

you have to get up get out and get living

yeah this is really it!

I love The Cure - saw them in concert twice back in my youth...ahhh those days.

My favorite song is "Just like Heaven".

I haven't bought any of their new stuff lately, though - as I get old, I tend to buy less cds. It is very sad.

Anyway - thanks for posting - I will have to go out and get the cd this song is on. I do so love The Cure - but blame them for being partially responsible for creating emo. Yuck hahah.
