"Lovesong (The Cure cover) " as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Boris Williams and Eliud Hernandez....
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
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

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

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

    My InterpretationHeh heh the lyric is very self explanatory, but I suppose there's no harm in dissecting it for a more elaborate (free) interpretation.

    ------
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am home again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am whole again
    -------

    The guy is far away from home, has left the place he belonged to for a long time and never really found it again. He's scarred, part of him destroyed, life hasn't been too kind to him. But this person he's singing for gives him peace every time they're alone together.

    -------
    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
    -------

    He's old and broken, he's tired and he doesn't feel like he's happy or making other people happy. But being together with this person makes him forget about all that. This person gives him joy.

    -------
    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
    -------

    He can't be with the person he's singing for all the time, not even a lot of times, but he will always love this person. He might stay only for a short while, he say and do hurtful things and probably can't help but keep on doing it, but despite all that he will always love this person.

    ------
    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
    ------

    He isn't free, he's tied to situations and things or people or his own needs and choices that make him unhappy but he can't break away. He feels dirty, might be for living a life of crime or having diseases or stuff within himself that he considers unclean. But every time he's with this person, he feels liberated, 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
    ------

    Life sucks he sucks they can't be together freely he says and do hurtful things without meaning to, but he loves this person, and will always love this person until the day he dies, despite everything.

    General CommentLet me just say that both versions are unique in their own way and, personally, I couldn't live without either one of them...

    General CommentI think this song is pretty self explainatory...
    this girl he's singing about is something special, she makes him a new man and no matter what happens-fights, distance, misunderstandings, this girl should know that he loves her a lot, and stupid little things wont get in the way of that

    General CommentI agree with SoccrFwd13, this is way better than the Cure, it has more soul to it.

    General CommentThis is one of the best covers ever. 311 is such a talented band and they put on some nasty concerts. Hexum is definitely a rock god. I can't think of a band out right now that mixes so many different kinds of music into such a perfect sound. These guys definitely have a lot of chemistry and one of the reasons I dig 'em is because they do their own thing. True music fans love them and idiots hate them.

    General CommentThe Cure version is nice, but it's a little dreary (which is ok). This version is amazing for a cover. They've added nuances to the song that make it awesome.
