#96 In Between Days

#96 In Between Days – The Cure

The fourth Cure track to make this list (Close to me, Just like heaven, Boys don’t cry) and there could easily have been others (Friday I’m in love); they really have put out a large number of high-quality singles. I think this particular track has what is almost the perfect introduction: building from drums, bass and lead, adding rhythm and melody picked out on percussion and then keyboards filling everything out with a counter melody. Once the song starts proper, we soon get to the subject matter which is getting old, your choices have been made, there’s no going back, it’s bad and it’s going to get worse,  sic transit gloria mundi … catchy tune though.

Lyrics

yesterday i got so old
i felt like i could die
yesterday i got so old
it made me want to cry
go on go on
just walk away
go on go on
your choice is made
go on go on
and disappear
go on go on
away from here

and i know i was wrong
when i said it was true
that it couldn’t be me and be her
inbetween without you
without you

yesterday i got so scared
i shivered like a child
yesterday away from you
it froze me deep inside
come back come back
don’t walk away
come back come back
come back today
come back come back
why can’t you see?
come back come back
come back to me

and i know i was wrong
when i said it was true
that it couldn’t be me and be her
inbetween without you
without you
