Right before I left for NYC last week I got some cds to take on the trip with me. One of the ones that I picked up was one of The Cure's greatest hit albums. I never considered myself a fan though I am familiar with some of their catalogue. Actually, I never really liked them when I was younger and that might have to do with the fact that I had a college boyfriend that loved them and drove me crazy by playing "Galore" over and over again. As a matter of fact I think it was a Cure song that he had dedicated to me on one of the local Syracuse radio stations. Mind you I didn't even know that he had done this till I got a few phone calls from friends asking me if Jim (the college boyfriend) had requested a song for me. I had no freaking idea as I generally avoided the local area radio stations like the plague. After the fifth call (and all my friends trying to convince me that it was indeed a sweet thing for him to do) I called Jim and asked if it was indeed him. It was. I was furious. 1) Because he caused me embarassment (and I had my tough girl from Bklyn reputation at stake) 2) he chose a local Syracuse station (he was at double fault here because he was originally from the area) and 3) it was the Cure. Anyway, now that I look back on it maybe I was a little harsh......Nah!

Below are the lyrics for "Just Like Heaven" the song dedicated to me on the fateful night back during my sophmore year.

"Just Like Heaven"

"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said"
The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck"
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise thatI'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had to make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"

You soft and only
You lost and lonely
You strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You soft and only
You lost and lonely
You Just like Heaven

PS: I wonder what ever happened to that Goth Girl I went to high school who looked exactly like Robert Smith? I will borrow the words from my friend Michelle who loves the term "a very unfortunate looking man". Indeed he is. Not that there is anything wrong with that :)

PS: Mr K. I know think of you when I hear this :)

Well, then, I'll have to call up your radio station and have it dedicated to you! This one and that one by the Divinyls.
