*SIDENOTE* Though you might consider my request illegal, I guess this whole
           file could also be considered illegal: I am looking for bootlegs!
           There's no way I could get any Cure bootlegs unless some kind soul
           out there in NetLand wants to sell me a tape copy. Write to me!

             "i think it's dark and it looks like rain" you said
                                 D
              "and the wind is blowing like it's the end of the
                  A                           D
               world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the

           cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for a second

               "i think i'm old and i'm feeling pain" you said
              "and it's all running out like it's the end of the
               world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the
           cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for a second

                sometimes you make me feel like i'm living at
              the edge of the world like i'm living at the edge
              of the world "it's just the way i smile" you said

                               pictures of you

                        A                         D
              i've been looking so long at these pictures of you
                   that i almost believe that they're real
               i've been living so long with my pictures of you
          that i almost believe that the pictures are all i can feel

                  remembering you standing quiet in the rain
                      as i ran to your heart to be near
              and we kissed as the sky fell in holding you close
                     how i always held close in your fear
               remembering you, running soft through the night
               you were bigger and brighter and wider than snow
             and screamed at the make-believe screamed at the sky
           and you finally found all your courage to let it all go

   remembering you fallen into my arms, crying for the death of your heart
              you were stone white so delicate lost in the cold
                     you were always so lost in the dark
                      remembering you how you used to be
          slow drowned you were angles so much more than everything
               oh hold for the last time then slip away quietly
                    open my eyes but i never see anything

                        E                       D
                    if only i'd thought of the right words
                        E                       D
                      i could have held onto your heart
                        E                       D
                    if only i'd thought of the right words
                E                    Bm7                     A
             i wouldn't be breaking apart all my pictures of you

                   looking so long at these pictures of you
                       but i never held onto your heart
                   looking so long for the words to be true
              but always just breaking apart my pictures of you

Bridge:    A  Bm7  A/C#  D  A/C#  D  A/E  D/F#

                                    A
                        there was nothing in the world
                  Bm7                     A/C#                  D
          that i ever wanted more than to feel you deep in my heart
                                    A/C#
                        there was nothing in the world
                   D                        A/E
           that i ever wanted more that to never feel the breaking
                          D/F#                     D
                         apart all my pictures of you

I'm running out of time I'm out of step and
closing down and never sleep for wanting hours
the empty hours of greed and uselessly always
the need to feel again the real belief of
something more than mockery if only I could
fill my heart with love

                                  love song

Whenever I'm alone with you
Am          G              F            Em
You make me feel like I am whole again

whenever i'm alone with you you make me feel 
like i am young again whenever i'm alone with
you you make me feel like i am fun again

F       G        Am     C
However far away I will always love you
F       G           Am     C

you you make me feel like i am clean again

whatever words i say i will always love you
i will always love you

                        C#m
                   on candystripe legs the spiderman comes
                   A
                 softly through the shadow of the evening sun
                  C#m  (etc..)
               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 realise 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"

                      F#m
                and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand
                                                  A
                        million shivering furry holes
             F#m                                                     A
     and i know that in the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
                                                    C#m-A-C#m...
                     and spiderman is always hungry. . .

Additional lyrics: 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 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" NOTE: The notes in the above song are right the timing may be off, play along with the CD to help you. ************************************************************************* fascination street Intro (bass line):

Am well it's opening time down on fascination street F G so let's cut the conversation and get out for a bit Am because i feel it all fading and paling and i'm begging F G to drag you down with me to kick the last nail in yeah i like you in that like i like you to scream but if you open your mouth then i can't be responsible for quite what goes in or to care what comes out so just pull on your hair just pull on your pout and let's move to the beat like we know that's it's over if you slip going under slip over my shoulder so just pull on your face just pull on your feet and let's hit opening time down on fascination street so pull on your hair pull on your pout cut the conversation just open your mouth pull on your face pull on your feet and let's hit opening time down on fascination street ************************************************************************* prayers for rain you shatter me your grip on me a hold on me so dull it kills you stifle me infectious sense of hopelessness and prayers for rain i suffocate i breathe in dirt and nowhere shines but desolate and drab the hours all spent on killing time again all waiting for the rain you fracture me your hands on me a touch so plain so stale it kills you strangle me entangle me in hopelessness and prayers for rain i deteriorate i live in dirt and nowhere glows but drearily and tired the hours all spent on killing time again all waiting for the rain ************************************************************************* the same deep water as you Am B C D kiss me goodbye pushing out before i sleep can't you see i try swimming the same deep water as you is hard "the shallow drowned lose less than me" you breathe the strangest twist upon your lips "and we shall be together . . . " "kiss me goodbye bow your head and join with me" and face pushed deep reflections meet the strangest twist upon your lips and disappear the ripples clear and laughing break against your feet and laughing break the mirror sweet "so we shall be together . . . " "kiss me goodbye" pushing out before i sleep it's lower now and slower now the strangest twist upon your lips but i don't see and i don't feel but tightly hold up silently my hands before my fading eyes and in my eyes your smile the very last thing before i go . . . i will kiss you i will kiss you i will kiss you forever on nights like this i will kiss you i will kiss you and we shall be together . . . *************************************************************************** disintegration The song basically moves around this simple progression: C-D-Em However, it might change into Cadd9-Dadd9-Em7, especially somewhere in the middle of a song, where we have this lick:
