"More Than This" as written by and Robert James Smith....
For this second of your life,
Tell me that its true,
Waiting for a sign,
That's all I want of you.
Your heart hides a secret
A promise of what is,
Something more than this.

Just a second of your time,
Any one will do,
Taste of any other,
Is all I want from you,
You offer me the world,
And how can I resist
Something more than this?

Make believe in magic
Make believe in dreams
Make believe impossible,
Nothing as it seems
To see touch taste smell hear
But never know if its real

For this second of your life
Tell me if its true
Anyway we are
Is all I want of you
Your lips lies a secret
A promise of a kiss
Something more than this

Just a second of your time
Any one will do
To know any other is all I want for you
Giving me the world
Now I can't resist
Something more than this

Make believe in magic
Make believe in dreams
Make believe impossible
Nothing as it seems
Never really understand what anything means

Another second of my life
Not knowing if its true
Make believe in nothing
Is all I want of you
Whisper me your secret
Whisper me your ears
Always something other
Something more than this...

    General CommentThis great song found on the X-Files movie soundtrack is underrated.. It's about the inevitable change in Mulder and Scully's relationship, which ultimately didn't happen in the movie, but was explored, the longing of something "more."

    General CommentThis song is about a guy, that is so madly infatuated with a girl, that he doesn't mind that she will never be his own.

    'the taste of any other, is all i want from you'...

    One kiss is still all he wants. One memory that will get him through an eternity of lonliness.

    To be that in love with someone,
    To know that they don't love you back,
    -and yet to still dedicate your entire life and soul to them,
    That is true love.

    Granted - it's the unrequited love that no one would ever wish to feel. but it's true
    -and it's what this song is all about.

    The Cure - pure genius

    General CommentI like georgie18 view.
    the guy in the song, is asking this question .. making is sound small.. "Just a second of your time..?" but the question itself is to be with the girl hes dreaming of. Its true love, mystical and believing in possibilities.
    "Offer me the world,
    And how can I resist?"
    sometimes, you feel like that with someone, they hold the world and everything you want. and you want it, cant resist it.
