Lyrics of Just Like Heaven

Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick
"The one that makes me scream," she said
"The one that makes me laugh," she said
And threw her arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you, I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face, I kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways
I had to make her glow
"Why are you so far away," she said
"Why won't you ever know
That I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you?"

You... Soft and only
You... Lost and lonely
You... Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream
Just like I have a dream

Daylight whipped me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I open up my eyes
I find myself alone, alone, alone
Above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me.

You... Soft and only
You... Lost and lonely
You... Just like heaven


'Just Like Heaven' is a song by the British alternative rock band The Cure. The group largely wrote the song during recording sessions in Southern France in 1987. The lyrics were written by the band's frontman Robert Smith, who drew inspiration from a past trip to the sea shore with his future wife. Before Smith had completed the lyrics an instrumental version of the song was used as the theme for the French television show 'Les Enfants du Rock'.

'Just Like Heaven' was the third single released from the band's 1987 album 'Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me', while Smith's memories of the trip formed the basis for the song's accompanying music video. The song became The Cure's first American hit and in 1988 reached number 40 on the 'Billboard' charts. It has been highly praised by critics and covered by artists such as Dinosaur Jr. and Katie Melua. Smith has said he considers 'Just Like Heaven' to be one of the band's strongest songs.
