"Lovesong" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Boris Williams and Eliud Hernandez....
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

    General CommentThis is a beautiful love song. The words are really beautiful, but the music is really sad. I think that this is to show that sometimes love can be so beautiful that it causes pain.

    General CommentEven though this song is sad and depressing, it's absolutely beautiful and will always be one of my favorite Cure songs.

    General CommentChloe le Fay is right, it's written for his wife Mary. Robert said this about lovesong: "Yeah, it was cause me 'n' Mary got married last year and I couldn't think of what to give her, for a wedding present (laughs), so I wrote her that song... cheap and cheerful... she would've preferred diamonds, I think, but... I dunno... she might look back and be glad that I gave her that."

    General CommentQuestion... Is he singing of a love that he knows is doomed? A love that has already ended? Or is he actually expressing his love in this COMPLETELY depressing manner??

    General CommentThis is probably one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard...there is a certain amount of sadness to this song but, well, the Cure WERE a goth band...I think it works

    General Comment I don't really see it as depressing... its like.. this beautiful sadness that erupts, but there's nothing really sad about it. Like when you cry when aomeone says "I love you", and you know its true. Its like showing sadness for some of the beauty it can posess. I mean the music, the lyrics are the kind of thing that would provoke those tears.

    General CommentThis song was a wedding gift to his wife! He wanted to get her something that would always be around, instead of a ring or that sort. So he wrote her a song, which in reality, means more than a material item...
