I'd love to touch the sky tonight
I'd love to touch the sky
So take me in your arms
And lift me like a child
And hold me up so high
And never let me go
Take me
Take me in your arms tonight

Hold me
Hold me up so high
And never let me down
Hold me
Hold me up so high
To touch the sky
Just one more time

Take me in your arms tonight
Take me in your arms
Just one more time
Just one more time
Just one more time

    General Comment:This is a song about the loss of innocence and the intense desire to get that innocence back (like the innocence of a child), but one cannot turn back the clock and what is lost is sometimes lost forever in some cases.

    General Comment:lipssocoldtheyburn might have something...even if all the lyrics aren't the normal idea of romantic, they've all got sort of a heartfelt thing to them, like you really feel like he's speaking from his soul, even in a song like "Killing an Arab."

    Anyway, this song means a lot to me. It was the first Cure song I remember hearing, and I thought my dad put it on just for me, and the "touch the sky one more time" part was about how I loved it when he picked me up and swung me around and stuff. Now sometimes he sings the hard "hold me, hold me up so high" part and I feel like crying.

    Sorry about the sappy part. The bottom line is, this song is beautiful.

    General Comment:This song has one of the most beautiful melody lines ever. Similar to Breathe. Serene yet heartfelt.

    General Comment:I have always loved this song.
    The lyrics are just the right mixture of haunting and romantically beautiful, and the music is sweet and melodious.

    General Comment:lipssocold - are you sure all his lyrics are romantic...what about drugs & death??? His lyrics after Three Imaninary Boys (US: Boy's Don't Cry) were mostly depression/goth lyrics...Faith, Pornography & 17 Seconds...

    General Comment:I've always loved this song. It could be the innocence of a child, but then again it could be a love/relationship gone bad.

    As tonight, I just want to hold the girl that broke it off with me, I just want to hold her one more time. But then the kisses and everything would send me to the sky, basically she's holding me up to the sky.
