Cut Here

This song is by The Cure and appears on the compilation album Greatest Hits (2001).

So we meet again and I offer my hand
All dry and English slow
And you look at me and I understand, yeah it's the look I used to know
"Three long years and your favourite man
Is that any way to say hello?"
And you hold me
Like you'll never let me go
Like you'll never let me go

"Oh come on and have a drink with me
Sit down and talk a while"
"Oh I wish I could and I will!
But now I just don't have the time"
And over my shoulder as I walk away
I see you give that look goodbye
I still see that look in your eyes

So dizzy, Mr. Busy, too much rush to talk to Billy
All the silly frilly things have to first get done
In a minute, sometime soon, maybe next time, make it June
Until later doesn't always come
Until later doesn't always come

It's so hard to think it ends sometime
And this could be the last
I should really hear you sing again
And I should really watch you dance
Because it's hard to think I'll never get another chance
To hold you
To hold you

But chilly, Mr. Dilly, too much rush to talk to Billy
All the tizzy, fizzy idiot things must get done
In a second, just hang on, all in good time, won't be long
Until later

I should've stop to think, I should've made the time
I could've had that drink, I could've talked a while
I would've done it right, I would've moved us on
But I didn't, now it's all too late
It's over and you're gone

I miss you, I miss you, I miss you, I miss you
I miss you, I miss you so much

But how many times can I walk away
And wish "if only"
How many times can I talk this way
And wish "if only"
Keep on making the same mistake
Keep on aching the same heartbreak
I wish "if only"
But "if only"
Is a wish too late
