*SIDENOTE* Though you might consider my request illegal, I guess this whole
           file could also be considered illegal: I am looking for bootlegs!
           There's no way I could get any Cure bootlegs unless some kind soul
           out there in NetLand wants to sell me a tape copy. Write to me!

                                 D
              "and the wind is blowing like it's the end of the

           cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for a second

               "i think i'm old and i'm feeling pain" you said
              "and it's all running out like it's the end of the
               world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the
           cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for a second

                sometimes you make me feel like i'm living at
              the edge of the world like i'm living at the edge
              of the world "it's just the way i smile" you said

                               pictures of you

                        A                         D
              i've been looking so long at these pictures of you
                   that i almost believe that they're real
               i've been living so long with my pictures of you
          that i almost believe that the pictures are all i can feel

                  remembering you standing quiet in the rain
                      as i ran to your heart to be near
              and we kissed as the sky fell in holding you close
                     how i always held close in your fear
               remembering you, running soft through the night
               you were bigger and brighter and wider than snow
             and screamed at the make-believe screamed at the sky
           and you finally found all your courage to let it all go

   remembering you fallen into my arms, crying for the death of your heart
              you were stone white so delicate lost in the cold
                     you were always so lost in the dark
                      remembering you how you used to be
          slow drowned you were angles so much more than everything
               oh hold for the last time then slip away quietly
                    open my eyes but i never see anything

                        E                       D
                    if only i'd thought of the right words
                        E                       D
                      i could have held onto your heart
                        E                       D
                    if only i'd thought of the right words
                E                    Bm7                     A
             i wouldn't be breaking apart all my pictures of you

                   looking so long at these pictures of you
                       but i never held onto your heart
                   looking so long for the words to be true
              but always just breaking apart my pictures of you

Bridge:    A  Bm7  A/C#  D  A/C#  D  A/E  D/F#

                  Bm7                     A/C#                  D
          that i ever wanted more than to feel you deep in my heart
                                    A/C#
                        there was nothing in the world
                   D                        A/E
           that i ever wanted more that to never feel the breaking

                         apart all my pictures of you

I'm running out of time I'm out of step and
closing down and never sleep for wanting hours
the empty hours of greed and uselessly always
the need to feel again the real belief of
something more than mockery if only I could
fill my heart with love

Whenever I'm alone with you
Am          G              F           Em
You make me feel like I am home again
Am       G              F    Em
Whenever I'm alone with you
Am          G              F            Em
You make me feel like I am whole again

whenever i'm alone with you you make me feel
like i am young again whenever i'm alone with
you you make me feel like i am fun again

F       G        Am     C
However far away I will always love you
F       G           Am     C
However long I stay I will always love you
F        G           Am     C
Whatever words I say I will always love you
F      G
I will always love you

whenever i'm alone with you you make me feel
like i am free again whenever i'm alone with
you you make me feel like i am clean again

however far away i will always love you
however long i stay i will always love you
whatever words i say i will always love you
i will always love you

                   on candystripe legs the spiderman comes
                   A
                 softly through the shadow of the evening sun
                  C#m  (etc..)
               stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
                   looking for the victim shivering in bed
                searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
               suddenly! a movement in the corner of the room!
           and there is nothing i can do when i realise with fright
             that the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!

                quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
                 closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
                softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
               arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes
                "be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
            don't struggle like that or i will only love you more
           for it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
               the spiderman is having you for dinner tonight"

                      F#m
                and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand
                                                  A
                        million shivering furry holes
             F#m                                                     A
     and i know that in the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
                                                    C#m-A-C#m...
                     and spiderman is always hungry. . .

Additional lyrics:

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now
Closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms around me and his tongue in my eyes
"Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
Don't struggle like that or I will only love you more
For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight"

NOTE:  The notes in the above song are right the timing may be off,

              to drag you down with me to kick the last nail in

              yeah i like you in that like i like you to scream
            but if you open your mouth then i can't be responsible
               for quite what goes in or to care what comes out
               so just pull on your hair just pull on your pout

           and let's move to the beat like we know that's it's over
                if you slip going under slip over my shoulder
               so just pull on your face just pull on your feet
            and let's hit opening time down on fascination street

                    so pull on your hair pull on your pout
                  cut the conversation just open your mouth
                     pull on your face pull on your feet
            and let's hit opening time down on fascination street

*************************************************************************

                               prayers for rain

you shatter me your grip on me a hold on me
so dull it kills you stifle me infectious sense of
hopelessness and prayers for rain i suffocate i
breathe in dirt and nowhere shines but desolate
and drab the hours all spent on killing time
again all waiting for the rain

you fracture me your hands on me a touch so
plain so stale it kills you strangle me entangle
me in hopelessness and prayers for rain i
deteriorate i live in dirt and nowhere glows but
drearily and tired the hours all spent on killing
time again all waiting for the rain

*************************************************************************

                          the same deep water as you

                   Am         B     C            D
                  kiss me goodbye pushing out before i sleep
       can't you see i try swimming the same deep water as you is hard
             "the shallow drowned lose less than me" you breathe
                      the strangest twist upon your lips
                      "and we shall be together . . . "

               "kiss me goodbye bow your head and join with me"
                 and face pushed deep reflections meet
                      the strangest twist upon your lips
     and disappear the ripples clear and laughing break against your feet
     and laughing break the mirror sweet "so we shall be together . . . "

                 "kiss me goodbye" pushing out before i sleep
       it's lower now and slower now the strangest twist upon your lips
    but i don't see and i don't feel but tightly hold up silently my hands
               before my fading eyes and in my eyes your smile
                    the very last thing before i go . . .

               i will kiss you i will kiss you i will kiss you
              forever on nights like this i will kiss you i will
                   kiss you and we shall be together . . .

                                disintegration

The song basically moves around this simple progression: C-D-Em
However, it might change into Cadd9-Dadd9-Em7, especially somewhere
in the middle of a song, where we have this lick:

E --8-7-----5-3-----2----|----0----0-----0----0-----0----0-----------|
B --------------------3--|--3---3--3---3---3--3---3---3--3-----------|
G -----------------------|---------0----------2----------0-----------|
D -----------------------|---------2----------0----------2-----------|
A -----------------------|---------3---------------------2-----------|
E -----------------------|-------------------------------0-----------|
                                 Cadd9      Dadd9       Em7


                C               D               Em
         oh i miss the kiss of treachery the shameless kiss of vanity
    the soft and the black and the velvety up tight against the side of me
                    and mouth and eyes and heart all bleed
                    and run in thickening streams of greed
        as bit by bit it starts the need to just let go my party piece

        oh i miss the kiss of treachery the aching kiss before i feed
                   the stench of a love for a younger meat
               and the sound that it makes when it cuts in deep
         the holding up on bended knees the addiction of duplicities
        as bit by bit it starts the need to just let go my party piece
                   but i never said i would stay to the end
             so i leave you with babies and hoping for frequency
                screaming like this in the hope of the secrecy
                     screaming me over and over and over
              i leave you with photographs pictures of trickery
                stains on the carpet and stains on the scenery
                   songs about happiness murmured in dreams
            when we both of us knew how the ending would be . . .

             so it's all come back round to breaking apart again
                breaking apart like i'm made up of glass again
                      making it up behind my back again
                holding my breath for the fear of sleep again
                      holding it up behind my head again
                  cut in deep to the heart of the bone again
            round and round and round and it's coming apart again
                            over and over and over

                 now that i know that i'm breaking to pieces
              i'll pull out my heart and i'll feed it to anyone
                      crying for sympathy crocodiles cry
         for the love of the crowd and the three cheers from everyone
              dropping through sky through the glass of the roof
         through the roof of your mouth through the mouth of your eye
               through the eye of the needle it's easier for me
              to get closer to heaven than ever feel whole again

                     i never said i would stay to the end
             i knew i would leave you with babies and everything
                 screaming like this in the hole of sincerity
                     screaming me over and over and over
              i leave you with photographs pictures of trickery
                  stains on the carpet stains on the memory
                   songs about happiness murmured in dreams
             when we both of us knew how the end always is . . .

                         how the end always is . . .

                                  last dance

                     i'm so glad you came i'm so glad you
                 remembered to see how we're ending our last
                  dance together expectant too punctual but
              prettier than ever i really believe that this time
                                 it's forever

                but older than me now more constant more real
                 and the fur and the mouth and the innocence
                 turned to hair and contentment that hangs in
                  a basement a women now standing where once
                            there was only a girl

                     i'm so glad you came i'm so glad you
                 remembered the walking through walls in the
                 heart of december the blindness of happiness
                of falling down laughing and i really believed
                          that this time was forever

               but christmas falls late now flatter and colder
               and never as bright as when we used to fall all
               this in an instant before i can kiss you a woman
                now standing where once there was only a girl

                     i'm so glad you came i'm so glad you
                 remembered to see how we're ending our last
                  dance together reluctantly cautiously but
              prettier than ever i really believe that this time
                                 it's forever

               but christmas falls late now flatter and colder
               and never as bright as when we used to fall and
               even if we drink i don't think we would kiss in
                the way that we did when the woman was only a
                                     girl

               hopelessly drift in the eyes of the ghost again
                down on my knees and my hands in the air again
                  pushing my face in the memory of you again
                but i never know if it's real never know how i
                wanted to feel never quite said what i wanted
                to say to you never quite managed the words to
                 explain to you never quite knew how to make
                  them believable and now the time has gone
                 another time undone hopelessly fighting the
               devil futility feeling the monster climb deeper
                inside of me feeling him gnawing my heart away
              hungrily i'll never lose this pain never dream of
                                  you again

  *************************************************************************

                                   homesick

hey hey! just one more and i'll walk away all
the everything you win turns to nothing today
and i forget how to move when my mouth is this
dry and my eyes are bursting hearts in a blood-
stained sky oh it was sweet it was wild and oh
how we . . . i trembled stuck in honey honey
cling to me so just one more just on more go
inspire in me the desire in me to never go home
oh just one more and i'll walk away all the
everything you win turns to nothing today so
just one more just one more go inspire in me
the desire in me to never go home
