"Out of This World" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
When we look back at it all as I know we will
You and me, wide eyed
I wonder
Will we really remember how it feels to be this alive?

And I know we have to go
I realize we only get to stay so long
Always have to go back to real lives
Where we belong

And I know we have to go
I realize we only get to stay so long
Always have to go back to real lives
Where we belong

When we think back to all this and I'm sure we will
Me and you, here and now
Will we forget the way it really is
Why it feels like this and how?

And we always have to go I realize
We always have to say goodbye
Always have to go back to real lives

But realizations are the reason why
We want to live another life
We want to feel another time
Another time

Yeah another time

To feel another time

When we look back at it all as I know we will
You and me, wide eyed
I wonder
Will we really remember how it feels to be this alive?

And I know we have to go
I realize we always have to turn away
Always have to go back to real lives

But real lives are why we stay
For another dream
Another day
For another world
Another way
For another way

One last time before it's over
One last time before the end
One last time before it's time to go again

    General CommentThis song is a brilliant introduction to what becomes a revelation. The entirety of the bloodflowers CD begs the listener to breakdown with robert smith and disengage from reality while accepting it at the same time. It is, quite simply, about saying goodbye; to the world, to your loved one, to your loyal fan base. It is about discovering the real meaning of love and realizing that you can not have it. I love this song, i love the cure. Bloodflowers will always be the best album ever made and robert smith the most creative genius alive.

    General CommentDoes anyone feel like this song has a connection with "The Promise"?

    You promised me another wish
    Another way
    You promised me another dream
    Another day
    You promised me another time

    ...those lyrics are very similar to those in this song.

    General CommentThis song hits me so hard, 'specially the lyrics.

    "But real lives are the reason why we want to live another life, we want to feel another time.." That's exactly how I feel for almost 10 years now.

    General Commentthis song hits me so hard too. i feel the entire bloodflowers album is about retrospection, and this song just sums it all up. looking towards the past while looking towards the future too. isn't robert amazing?

    General CommentThe song is about the innocence of youth and the wide eyed dream of true love, but then yr pulled back into real life and theres no hope and no true love, so you dream up this perfect dream life where every one of yr wide eyed youthful dreams can come completely true. But its also about realizing that that life is only a dream that youll never be able to obtain and sadly accepting it and returning to yr real life
