"If Only Tonight We Could Sleep (with The Cure)" 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...

    General Comment I kind of see The Cure as being a certain influence for Placebo. All I know is that Brian Molko bowing to Robert Smith is just an awesome sight.
