"Cursed" as written by Robert Peter Williams, Adrian Deevoy and Guy Antony Chambers....
Dig your polished nails into the dirt
Rip your skirt off
Wipe the hurt off
You know it tears my heart out when you
Flirt with danger
And any stranger

You're not as stupid as I look
Before I could read
You wrote the book

Cursed
Since your birth dear
And your worst fears
Have all come true

Held my hand when I got my first tattoo
I was naked when they penetrated
Told everyone I'd slept with you
Thought you liked it and you wouldn't deny it
Saint Peter's gonna be unfaithful
Tell God he's got a dirty angel

Cursed
Since your birth dear
And your worst fears
Have all come true

Babe you're not the first
Here on earth dear
Cause I'm still here
And I'm cursed, too
Cursed like you

Hush
Baby sleep now
We all love you
We always did

Cursed
Since your birth dear
And your worst fears
Have all come through

Babe you're not the first
Here on earth dear
Cause I'm still here
And I'm cursed, too
Cursed like you

Hush
Baby sleep now
We all miss you
We always will

    General CommentI've read somewhere that this song is about a celebrity in Britain, but I don't know that woman nor her history, anyone could tell me something about it?.

    General CommentI think it was rumoured to be about Geri Halliwell, formerly of the Spice Girls. I think that rumour was brought about by the tabloids who always tried to insist the two of them were an item when they were only ever good friends and wouldn't leave them alone when they were on holiday together.

    Anyway, according to Robbie this song isn't about her at all, it's about a friend who passed away. I love it because it's not your usual song about having lost someone. I think there are a lot of different emotions in here as well as sadness that are common after a bereavement but not so often expressed in songs such as anger and guilt. I think you also get to know some of what he felt about her and how he thought she compared to him. You can feel her character in this song and I think it may have been written to reflect that. I love the bits where it suddenly goes quieter - "hush, baby sleep now, we all love you, we always do." It's so beautiful, it's the quieter, calmer and more lasting underlying rememberence through the shock of it all - "we'll always love you and miss you."

    General CommentThanks CaughtYourRainbows, I'm sure it's not about Geri at all. I also read it was about a friend of his that passed away, but I think I remember she was famous too, that's why I ask.
    You are so right, this song is very moving, it expresses a complex mix of feelings and I usually skip it cause the death theme is too dark for me and reminds me of sad moments.
