I lift my lips from kissing you
To kiss the sky
Cloud soft and blue
And slow the sun melts down
Into your golden words for me

I lift my hands from touching you
To touch the wind that whispers through
This twilight garden
Turns into a world
Where dreams are real

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you

I lift my eyes from watching you
To watch the star rise shine onto
Your dreaming face and dreaming smile
You're dreaming worlds for me

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you

I lift my lips from kissing you
And kiss the sky wide deepest blue
And slow the moon swims up
Into your golden words for me

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you

Consider it's a B-Side, a lot of bands would pay to  get a tune like this. 
Reverb is such a dependable atmosphere maker.
Three hour concert at the Paleo Festival in Nyon last year, Shake Dog Shake!!

THANK YOU for playing this.
To be honest, I am not a fan of The Cure, but this song excited me at the first listening now. So sad it's not on Spotify...
Dagnabbit! This is The Cure at their self-indulgent best, and it makes me wish I was a fat goth girl in a darkened bedroom, surrounded by Anne Rice books, and just finding out that the boy I fancied was going out with my best friend. Sorta thing.

It seems like they were going for a sort of droney, down-tempo/dream-pop groove for the music on this track.
Sounds like he hired Cocteau Twins to back him up.

Then how do you know you are cured?

 
There's that reassuringly expensive medical bill...

Agree w you on lyrics. Repetition I.e. droning. common in bluegrass & gospelcana so you can hear the different harmonists. But I wouldn't mind more wailin either.

I find their 'B' material is still better than most everybody else's 'A'

Oddly, I hear Cocteau Twins in this Cure song (which is new to me, never really a Cure fan but appreciative of some of their work). But I also was not ever really much attuned to CT prior to my Radio Paradise era. I'm not sure RP can be defined as an addiction, but maybe habituation.

Perfect post.  Thanks.
Ooooh yes. What is it about the Cure (especially "Just Like Heaven"-era Cure) that reminds me of extreme heartache? Like you said, the kind you think you'll never recover from....and then, miraculously, ever-so-slowly, agonizingly, you do......sigh....

yep. still sucks tho......
I like!
seriously overplayed group, and most of their stuff is not very good. noise to fill gaps and keep kids quiet...
Boring, yet depressing.

Some EXCELLENT tracks on this box set you can't get elsewhere - a must own for any Cure fan!
Always happy to hear the Cure, and this song is one I don't hear much, thanks for playing it!
Robert Smith is my "God" .. I love their darker side of their music .. Disintegration was their best ..
I didn't know Sideshow Bob was a member of The Cure.  
i know exactly what you mean...
For about 3 months during my senior year of high school (1991) there just wasn't a better band in the world for me.

This is the band that brings me back in time more than any other.

Lovely words you used to explain what I felt a 100 times - if not even this very moment!

SIIIGH!


Yes, magic indeed!
Magic song! And my daughter dance with this song    {#Good-vibes}

Ha ha same here.
I cannot wait to see them again at Pinkpop as I was there in 1986... Pure magic!

One of my favorite Cure songs from the 1990s.
Outrageous set ! Kinda dreamy , floating, very rhythmic,  with that
slow burn on the axe in the background.  Sweet in slo-mo.  {#Chillpill} -in.

I really like this one.

This is nice.  The guitars at the beginning drew me in.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn it was from The Cure's Join the Dots.


Anticipating a Cure CD single was better than the albums themselves...Killer B sides every time!

More like a giant step forward.

Hard to believe that even the release of this B-sides collection was nearly SEVEN years ago. I bought it in Strasbourg before (or after?) a concert... I think it was M83 touring after their first album. Can't be sure though. Time flies.

I am upping all my eights to nines - must be getting soft in my "old" days...

Or maybe it's just that I hadn't heard this in many years and it takes me back to a time when I was unhappy a lot of the time and consequently spent a lot more time listening to the Cure than I do now.

Still the greatest, after all these years.


{#Meditate}
Very nice!!
Goth Juice
...noone ever took her place...
Nice!!

Turn it up to 11. {#Wink}
I pray that this is not a permanent affliction.

I don't much care for The Cure, but this track is really nice.  Thanks for playing it!
Such a sweet love song.
This very intense piece would have been right at home on the Disintegration album.

70 B-sides and rarities?  These guys were/are prolific.
Usually box sets are a waste of money, but Join the Dots is worth it.

Really great music from the time when The Cure were at their best. And the triple album (or is it quadruple?), Join the Dots, is exceptional even in the context of those normally useless box sets, as my predecessor has already noted. {#Laughing}
So much good music on Join the dots. One of the only box sets worth buying.
most excellent........
I love the mood this one generates. 8
I haven't been a big fan of The Cure, at least in the early days, but this song is making me reevaluate their music. I do like this song.
RAD. Never heard of the dude, but you're right. Thanx for the head's up on the kick-arse artist.
Check it out!
I'm looking at Jacek Yerka paintings and I've got to say, the Cure is probably the perfect accompaniment. Check it out! ">
Oooh, thanks for reminding me I need to buy Cure tickets for when they come in June! EDIT: Sold out, darn! :( They cost $55 each anyway.
Beyond A Forest/Burn/Purple Haze haven't been much of a Cure fan --- think I'll download this one though. 7.

This a gorgeous song Another example of how a cure b-side can be as good, if not better than their released material. This Twilight Garden could have made Wish an album with even more to offer i'd love to hear it live
Steely Dan to The Cure. Quite a leap.
The jury's still out on this one for me. Not that it's bad, but I think that there's just so much by the Cure that's better that isn't on the RP playlist...
Love those legwarmers! :lol:
Didn't like them this morning Still don't Thanks for the bathroom break

...in spite of RP's usual playlist depth, i'm fairly surprised to hear this obscure b-side!..it's not a bad song by any means, but neither does it particlarly stand out amongst the cure's repertoire... ...regardless, great to hear, although it always irks me when b-sides are attributed to latter-day compilations rather than the original singles on which they were released...i'd much rather see the cover art for high...

very cool
Beautiful!!
