"If Only Tonight We Could Sleep (The Cure cover)" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
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

    "hey! CHINO!"
    that's the only words I hear.
    but it sounds like the crowd is humming the guitar riff

    General CommentWhere can I find this?
    I am a big fan of both bands.
    It's difficult to pull off a cure cover... I've heard this is good.

    General CommentThis can be found on their B sides and rarities by the way. I love love love the Cure and Deftones so
    when I was watching this on VH1 when it first aired, I almost about shit my pants!! Just kidding. But I was
    very happy to see that they were able to do it, with Chino being such a big cure fan. I think they did the
    best job of a Cure song that night. All of the cover they do are amazing. How do they do it. God blessed
    them with such musical talent and blessed Chino with that one of a king voice.
