"This Twilight Garden" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Boris Williams and Perry Bamonte....
I lift my lips from kissing you
To kiss the sky
Cloud soft and blue
And slow the sun melts down
Into your golden words for me

I lift my hands from touching you
To touch the wind that whispers through
This twilight garden
Turns into a world
Where dreams are real

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you

I lift my eyes from watching you
To watch the star rise shine onto
Your dreaming face and dreaming smile
You're dreaming worlds for me

I lift my lips from kissing you
And kiss the sky wide deepest blue
And slow the moon swims up
Into your golden words for me

No-one will ever take your place
I am lost in you
No-one will ever take your place
So in love with you

    General CommentOn Join The Dots, it says its the b-side of "High," but they could've used it for "...Elise" too. To me, the song is amazing. If you think about it, he lifts his lips and hands off of her, and he is reassuring her that it's only for a moment, that no one will ever take her place. He describes the environment as it melds into them, and the spaces between them are corrected by the beauty of the world around.

    General CommentI'm surprised this song wasn't put onto any of their actual albums since it's really good

    General CommentIf the lyrics are beautiful, hearing it on Robert's voice it's even better...

    General CommentThis song is just so damn good, I see it as a transition from Desintigration to Wish. Definitely in my top 10 Cure songs.

    "This Twilight Garden is my favourite B-side of all - it’s got a lovely atmosphere to it and I can’t understand how that didn’t get on Wish, while something like Wendy Time did." (Record Collector - January 2004)

    General CommentBrilliant....this song nearly makes me cry at how breathtakingly beautiful it is.

    Quite frankly, I don't understand how this didn't make it onto Wish either, when it's actually better than each and every song that did make it.

    General Commentwhen my best friend and partner in crime dedicated this song to me on a mixed tape, I knew there was no turning back! Robert Smith is a voice from within...

    General CommentThis song means so much to me. It is incredibly beautiful and full of visual imagery that convey the wonderful emotions behind this song. It is a true treasure to the senses. One thing I wish to know, is what type of effects were used in the guitar with the warbly sound. I know it has delay and probably some kind of phaser, but I have never heard anything like it before.
