A Night Like This Lyrics

Say goodbye on a night like this
If it's the last thing we ever do
You never looked as lost as this
Sometimes it doesn't even look like you
It goes dark
It goes darker still
Please stay
But I watch you like I'm made of stone
As you walk...

    What the actual fuck, this is mad wrong. If you knew anything you'd be aware of the john peel interview where john asks "many of your songs seem to be about rather dark relationships with girls" to which robert replies "well yeah the boy-girl thing is just more pertinent to me, you can make it boy-boy or girl-girl if you want"

    most of robert smiths songs were about the trials and tribulations of being gay and in love with a straight friend, and going out to the clubs when being gay was still a bad thing. this one is self explanatory.
    quintessential breakup song.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
