Kiss Me Album  Cure

Yes I kn[D]ow who you re[A]mind me of, a gir[D]l I think I used t[A]o know
Yes I'd [Bm]see her when the day got[C#m-A] colder,
on those[Bm] days when it felt like [C#m-A]snow
You know I even think that she stared like you,
she used to just stand there and stare
And roll her eyes right up to heaven
and make like I just wasn't there
A[G]nd she used to fall dow[E]n a lot
T[G]hat girl was always falling aga[E]in and again
And I us[D]ed to sometimes try to c[A]atch her
But I ne[Bm]ver even caught [C#m]her name[A]
solo:

And sometimes we would spend the night
just rolling about on the floor
And I remember even though it felt soft at the time,
I always used to wake up sore
You know I even think that she smiled like you,
she used to just stand there and smile
And her eyes would go all sort of far away
and stay like that for quite a while
And I remember she used to fall down a lot
That girl was always falling again and again
And I used to sometimes try to catch her
But I never even caught her name
Yes I sometimes even tried to catch her
But I never even caught her name
*****************************************************************************
torture
I'm in the room without a light
The room without a view
I'm here for one more treacherous night
Another night with you
It tortures me to move my hands
To try to move at all
And pulled
My skin so tight it screams
And screams and screams
And pulls some more
Hanging like this
Like a vampire bat
Hanging like this
Hanging on your back
I'm helpless again
My body is cut and broken
It's shattered and sore
My body is cut wide open
I can't stand anymore
Hanging like this
Like a vampire bat
Hanging like this
Hanging on your back
Oh it's torture
And I'm almost there
It's torture
But I'm almost there
It's torture
But I'm almost there
It's torture
But I'm almost there
*****************************************************************************
if only tonight we could sleep
If only tonight we could sleep
In a bed made of flowers
If only tonight we could fall
In a deathless spell
If only tonight we could slide
Into deep black water
And breathe
And breathe...
Then an angel would come
With burning eyes like stars
And bury us deep
In his velvet arms
And the rain would cry
As our faces slipped away
And the rain would cry
Don't let it end...
*****************************************************************************
why can't i be you?
Y[Dm]ou're so gorgeous I'll do [Bb]anyth[G]ing
I'll kiss you from your feet to where your head begins
You're so perfect, you're so right as rain
You make me make me hungry again
Ev[F]erything you do is irr[E]esistible
Ev[F]erything you do is simply kiss[E]able
W[Dm]hy can'[Bb-G]t I be you?
I'll run around in circles 'til I run out of breath
I'll eat you all up or I'll just hug you to death
You're so wonderful too good to be true
You make me make me hungry for you
Everything you do is simply delicate
Everything you do is quite angelicate
Why can't I be you?
You turn my head when you turn around
You turn the whole world upside down
I'm smitten I'm bitten I'm hooked I'm cooked I'm stuck like glue
You make me make me hungry for you
Everything you do is simply dreamy
Everything you do is quite delicious
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
You're simply elegant!!!

the snake pit
Well we're a mile under the ground
And I'm thinking that it's Christmas
And I'm kissing you hard
Like I've got very important business
And no-one knows
And no-one sees us
Because they're drinking their selves senseless
And I'm writhing
And I'm writhing
And I'm writhing in the snake pit
Well I'm out in a car
And it's just full of stupid girls
And I've forgotten how to speak
And I just can't remember a word
And my eyes feel like they're bursting
And they're splitting like plums
And I'm writhing
And I'm writhing
And I'm writhing in the snake pit
*****************************************************************************
how beautiful you are
The intro bass riff is:

D ---|--------------|----2--2--0-2-|--------------|-2--0--2-0-2---|
A ---|--------------|--------------|-0--0--0--0-0-|---------------|
E ---|--------------|--------------|--------------|---------------|

The chords are:
Intro: Am D C D (4x)
[Am]You want to know why I [D]hate you?
Well I~ll [C]try and explain[D]...
You remember that day in Paris
When we wandered through the rain
And promised to each other
That we~d always think the same
And dreamed that dream to be two souls as one
And stopped just as the sun set
And waited for the night
Outside a glittering building
Of glittering glass and burning light...
And in the road before us stood a weary greyish man
Who held a child upon his back
A small boy by the hand
The three of them were dressed in rags and thinner than air
And all six eyes stared fixedly on you
The [Bm]father~s eyes said [A]beautiful
How [Bm]beautiful you [A]are
The [Bm]boy~s eyes said how [A]beautiful
She [Bm]shimmers like a star
The [Am]child~s eyes uttered [Em]nothing
But [F]mute and utter joy
And [Am]filled my heart with [Em]shame for us
For the [F]way we are
(The [Am]way we are[Em])[F]
[D]     [Am]      [D]     [Am]     [D]    [Am]     [F]    [F]  I turned to look at you
To read my thoughts upon your face
And gazed so deep into your eyes
So beautiful and strange
Until you spoke and showed me understanding is a dream
-I hate these people staring, make them go away from me-
The father~s eyes said beautiful
How beautiful you are
The boy~s eyes said how beautiful
She shimmers like a star
The child~s eyes uttered nothing
But pride and utter joy
And stilled my heart with sadness
For the way we are
And [D]this is why I [Am]hate you
And [D]how I under[Am]stand
That [D]no-one ever [Am]knows or loves anot[F]her
Or loves anothe[Am]r
*****************************************************************************
hey you!!!
Hey you!!!
Yes you
Yes you the one that looks like Christmas
Come over here and kiss me
Kiss me
Hey you!!!
Yes you
Yes you the one that looks delirious
Come over here and kiss me
Kiss me
*****************************************************************************
just like heaven
"Sh[A]ow me how you d[E]o that trick, the [Bm]one that makes me sc[D]ream" she said
"The o[A]ne that makes me la[E]ugh" she said, and[Bm] threw her arms arou[D]nd my neck
"Sh[A]ow me how you d[E]o it and I pro[Bm]mise you I pro[D]mise that
I'll run a[A]way with you,[E] I'll run a[Bm]way with yo[D]u"
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"
[F#m]You, sof[G]t and only
[F#m]You, los[G]t and lonely
[F#m]You stra[G]nge as angels
[D]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 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
*****************************************************************************
all i want
Tonight I'm feeling like an animal
Tonight I'm howling inside
Tonight I'm feeling like an animal
Tonight I'm going wild
And all I want is to be with you again
And all I want is to hold you like a dog
And all I want is to be with you again
With you again
Just to hold you like a dog
Tonight I'm screaming like an animal
Tonight I'm losing control
Tonight I'm screaming like an animal
Tonight oh I'm getting so low
And all I want is to be with you again
And all I want is to hold you like a dog
And all I want is to be with you again
With you again
Just to hold you like a dog
That's all I want

        [Am]        [F]  The firs[Am]t time I saw lightning strike I [F]saw it underground
Six deep feet below the street the sky came crashing down
For a second that place was lost in space then everything went black
I left that basement burning and I never went back
The second time I saw it strike I saw it at sea
It lit up all the fish like rain and rained them down on me
For a second that boat was still afloat then everything went black
I left it underwater and I never went back
H[Dm]ey hey hey!!! But I lik[E7]e it when the lightning comes
Hey hey hey!!! Yes I like it a lot
Hey hey hey!!! Yes I'm jumping like a jumping jack
Dancing screaming itching squealing fevered
Feeling hot hot hot!!!
The third time I saw lightning strike it hit me in bed
It threw me around and left me for dead
For a second that room was on the moon then everything went black
I left that house on fire and I never went back
Hey hey hey!!! But I like it when the lightning comes
Hey hey hey!!! Yes I like it a lot
Hey hey hey!!! Yes I'm jumping like a jumping jack
Dancing screaming itching squealing fevered
Feeling hot hot hot!!!

one more time
(capo on 1st fret)
Two progressions:
for the verse it's F (Am-C) Dm (Dm/C)
and for the chorus, it's Bb Cm Gm
I'd l[F]ove to touch the sky tonight, I'd l[Dm]ove to touch the sky
So take me in your arms and lift me like a child
And hold me up so high and never let me go
Take me, take me in your arms tonight
H[Bb]old me, hold me up so high[Cm-Gm] and never let me down
Hold me, hold me up so high to touch the sky just one more time
Take me in your arms tonight
Take me in your arms
Just one more time
Just one more time
Just one more time

like cockatoos
Like many Cure songs, the there is really only one real riff for this song
with other cool stuff added in (like the string orchestrations at the end).
Anyway, the main (and intro) riff are these:
INTRO (4x) MAIN RIFF
E --------------------||-------------|---------|-------------|-----------|
B ---------0----------||-------6-6---|---------|-------------|-----------|
G -------0---0--------||----5--5-5---|-3-3-----|-------------|-----------|
D -----3-------3------||-3--5--3-3---|-3-3-5-5-|--6-6--8-8-8-|-6--5--3-3-|
A ---3-----------3----||-3--3--------|-1-1-5-5-|--6-6--8-8-8-|-6--5--3-3-|
E -1---------------1--||-1-----------|-----3-3-|--4-4--6-6-6-|-4--3--1-1-|

(Chords are FFCCFF BbBbGG G#G#BbBb G#G#GFF)
The ever so cool lyrics are:
She walked out of her house
And looked around
At all the gardens that looked back at her house
(Like all the faces that quiz when you smile)
And he was standing at the corner
Where the road turned dark
A part of shiny wet
Like blood the rain fell black down on the street
And kissed his feet she fell
Her head an inch away from heaven
And her face pressed tight
And all around the night sang out like cockatoos
And in her head
A picture of a boy who left her loney in the rain
(And all around the night sang out like cockatoos)
*****************************************************************************
icing sugar
You're delicious
Dreaming
Slack jawed
Green eyed
Rub my nose in
Icing sugar
Smooth as
When this cold and deadly
Blade
Kisses the fruit
So soft
And gently breathing
Under your skin
Oh I'll empty you
I'll empty you
As empty as a boy can be
As empty
As a boy can be
*****************************************************************************
the perfect girl
Intro: D Cadd9 G Cadd9 (dum dum dum)
Y[D]ou're such a st[Cadd9]range gi[G]rl
I think you [Cadd9]come from an[D]other [Cadd9]world[G] [Cadd9]
You're such a strange girl
I really don't understand a word
You're such a strange girl
I'd like to shake you around and around
You're such a strange girl
I'd like to turn you all upside down
You're such a such a such a strange girl
The way you look like you do
You're such a strange girl
I want to be with you
I[Em] think I'm [D/F#]falling[G]
I[Em] think I'm [D/F#]falling in[G]
I[Em] think I'm [D/F#]falling in l[G]ove with [Em-D/F#-G]you
With you[D] [Cadd9] [G] [Cadd9]
*****************************************************************************
a thousand hours
[D]  [Bm]   [F#m]    [A]  For how much longer can I howl into this wind?
For how much longer
Can I cry like this?
A thousand wasted hours a day
Just to feel my heart for a second
A thousand hours just thrown away
Just to feel my heart for a second
For how much longer can I howl into this wind?
*****************************************************************************
shiver and shake
You're just a waste of time
You're just a babbling face
You're just three sick holes that run like sores
You're a fucking waste
You're like a slug on the floor
Oh you're useless and ugly
And useless and ugly
And I shiver and shake
When I think of how you make me hate
I want to smash you to pieces
I want to smash you up and screaming
I want to smash you helpless
Down on the floor
Smash you until you're not here anymore
And I shiver and shake
Shiver and shake
*****************************************************************************
fight
This is the track that closes -Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me-, a total hopeful
track for Cure fans alike (but I am not a critic so I will not go on).
I have transcribed the basic guitar riff for the verses, the synth line for
the verses as well as chorus, and the guitar chords for the chorus.
The verse riff is:
E -------------------------------------
B -------------------------------------
G -------------------------------------
D -------------------------------------
A ----1--1p0----0--3--3--1--6----------
E -3---------3-------------------------

(make sure you slide between the last two notes, meaning slide between
fret 1 and 6).
The synthesizer riff (fit for guitar) for the verse is:
E -3----1-------------1--||-6------------------1--||
B -3---------4--3--4-----||-8----6----4--3--4-----||
G -----------------------||-----------------------||
D -----------------------||-----------------------||
A -----------------------||-----------------------||
E -----------------------||-----------------------||

(the double vertical lines in between means to repeat the riff)
For the ~Fight! Fight! Fight!~ part, the guitar plays a D5 chord (with
three staccato strums -hence the fight! fight! fight! part- it plays
D5 for about a second after that, then plays the C5 for another second,
then it plays C5 staccato three times. In between is the synth line.
If you work on it, you will know what I mean.
Synth lines inbetween -Fight! Fight! Fight!-
  [D5]         [C5]                         [C5] [D5]                                                                                  
E --------------                  E ------------------
B -3h4-3---1----                  B -1h3-4--4--3-3----
G --------------  ..............  G ------------------
D --------------                  D ------------------
A --------------                  A ------------------
E --------------                  E ------------------

That is basically it. The song ends on D5 and that is about it.
Sometimes there's nothing to feel
Sometimes there's nothing to hold
Sometimes there's no time to run away
Sometimes you just feel so old
The times it hurts when you cry
The times it hurts just to breathe
And then it seems like there's no-one left
And all you want is to sleep
Fight fight fight
Just push it away
Fight fight fight
Just push it until it breaks
Fight fight fight
Don't cry at the pain
Fight fight fight
Or watch yourself burn again
Fight fight fight
Don't howl like a dog
Fight fight
Just fill up the sky
Fight fight fight
Fight til you drop
Fight fight fight
And never never
Never stop
Fight fight fight
Fight fight fight
So when the hurting starts
And when the nightmares begin
Remember you can fill up the sky
You don't have to give in
You don't have to give in
Never give in
Never give in
Never give in
