    The real backstory is that when Robert Smith was 10 he crashed his bike and suffered from a pretty big concussion. Due to the severe crash, he saw visions/hallucinations of a girl he called "Bunny". This would go on for 2 years. The hallucinations about this girl finally stopped, age 12, when a plane he was on hit bad turbulence causing a very nauseating painful headache. Coincidencely, afterwards he meets a girl at the airport who was "a spitting image of Bunny", the girl's name was Anna. This song is about pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime "chance meeting", and honestly that's pretty cool

    Catch is about a doll. The voice is that of an adult having a memory of a doll that he would play with on rare occasions as a child. Key phrases indicate the odd behavior of dolls like "roll your eyes right up to heaven and make like I just wasn't there", "she use to fall down a lot", and "she use to just stand there and smile". That's what dolls do! Now, the voice is comparing that memory to someone he's met that reminds him of that doll because she has that same perfect smile.

    A girl from his past that he would daydream about
    But she never gave him a shot
    Always went for the popular crowd and got hurt a lot
    And now that he's made it she wants to hook up
