Not even going to lie. A Letter to Elise still makes me want to cry sometimes. Robert Smith is a MASTER of poetry. These lyrics rendered me speechless. Much like Jawbreaker, the Cure has this way with words.

I thought you were the girl I always dreamed about,
But I let the dream go,
And the promises broke,
The make believe ran out.


I hate that Blink 182 covered the song. They did the worst cover I've ever heard ever. It was all blinked out and lost the ENTIRE vibe of the song.

This is the best cover I've EVER seen. Any rock band who tries to cover the Cure should have the sense and decency to respect the somberness of the song. This is why I appreciated AFI's cover of "Just Like Heaven". They RESPECTED the Cure's sound and tried to their best to incorporate their own vibe with the Cure's. Stark contrast to Blink who completely ruined any shred of humanity in A Letter to Elise
