"The Perfect Girl" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
You're such a strange girl
I think you come from another world
You're such a strange girl
I really don't understand a word
You're such a strange girl
I'd like to shake you around and around
You're such a strange girl

I'd like
To turn you
All upside down
You're such a
Strange girl
The way you look like you do
You're such a strange girl
I want
To be with you

I think I'm falling
I think I'm falling in
I think I'm falling in love with you
With you

    General CommentWhen you are falling in love with someone, they are by far the most unique & fascinating person on earth. :) He loves that she is so different.

    But at the same time, you can fall in love with someone that everyone else writes off as "normal" or stereotypes & to you and only you they are perfect b/c of what you see in them. So who knows how strange she really is?

    General CommentOK, i've noticed the "from another world" thing in quite a few Cure songs....like a chain of flowers. Anybody got any ideas as to what it means?
    Gorgeous song.

    General CommentI think it's just one of Robert's motifs... I've been listening to a lot of Cure songs recently, and I've noticed that he has a very distinct writing style. I used to think that he was just good with lyrics and better with his voice... but there are definetly a number of things that show up in his songs a lot. Another world is just one of them...
