The Cure Lyrics

On candy stripe legs the spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
Suddenly a movement in the corner of the room
And there is nothing I can do
When I realize with fright
That the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now
Closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes
Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
Don't struggle like that or I will only love you more
For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight

And I feel like I'm being eaten
By a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning I will wake up
In the shivering cold

And the spiderman is always hungry

Timeless classic. This song is eerie yet soothing all in one. Can never get tired of this beat or Robert's voice.

Agree with you. Friendly from France where Robert Smith (the boss) and The Cure are always welcome !

This is my favorite song. It sounds unlike anything I've ever heard. It's the only song that's dark and creepy but also feels like a dreamy fantasy movie without having to get too psychedelic. Even feels like a reggae song the way the guitars strum along to the bass.


check out The Recluse by Cursive.

My personal favorite song of all time is Every Day Is Exactly The Same by Nine Inch Nails, and honestly I feel like it meets some of the qualifications you like so much about this one. Maybe you can check it out sometime.


@Matteo Wilcox nailed it 🎯
