"The Cure" as written by and Sara Quin Hunter Burgan....
Begging like you might take order in your own hands.
I stare, it seems like I don't care, drop
a chance in your hands then.
I know that bad's got to fix itself, correct over time.
And I know 'cause I've got the cure, I've
got a cure for your crimes.

All I dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
All I said to you, all I did for you seems so silly to me now.

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Screaming like no one might call the cops and arrest you this time.
Standing back against my building's back
door
I you're hoping for a ride.
I know the world's been mean to you, I've got a cure, hold tight.
I know the world's not fair to you, I've
got a cure for it's crimes.

All I dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
All I said to you, all I did for you seems so silly to me now.

Oh oh when you say it,
So so slowly to me,
Oh oh well I keep going,
Oh no I ran while knowing,
No no I know you need it,
So so I need it too,
And oh oh I must keep going,
So so you must too.

Oh oh when you say it,
So so slowly to me,
Oh oh well I keep going,
Oh no I ran while knowing,
No no I know you need it,
So so I need it too,
And oh oh I must keep going, so you must too.

I've got a cure, I've got the cure for you.

All I dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
All I said to you, all I did for you seems so silly to me now.

All I dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
All I said to you, all I did for you seems so silly to me now.

I've got a cure, I've got the cure for you.
I've got a cure, I've got the cure for you.

    General CommentThis is based off of the live version found on Youtube. I realize these may not be correct, so I greatly appreciate any help in deciphering the lyrics -- especially the ones I couldn't get. I'm not too sure about the section with the ((???)) at the top and bottom.

    General Commentmy goodness, you're brave to attempt this one xD I really wanted to get either the cure or the ocean but in both cases I started listening to them, ready to write things down, and as soon as she started singing I was terrified and gave up hahaha
    you did really well though, I can't seem to figure out anything you didn't get. can't wait for the cd so we can get all the lyrics down for sure!

    General CommentI'm sure once we know the lyrics, we'll be able to listen to the Rifflandia concert and go, "Oh, it's so obvious now!" xD

    General Commentand it's all that seemed like luck, not seemed like love. =)

    General CommentI don't know. I'm hearing "love," and I think that makes more sense with the song. She's saying that all the moments she thought were love seem so ridiculous and silly in the other person's head. Therefore, doing all of those things and saying all of those things seem silly to her {i.e., Tegan} because of that. Does that make sense?

    General Commentbut listen really closely. she clearly pronounces a "ck" sound. I feel like love would be better, but she's definitely saying luck here.
    I kind of think she might have been saying love in the rifflandia recording, though..but not sure.
