A Letter To Elise Lyrics
(Originally by The Cure)

Oh Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
Every way to smile
Forget
And make-believe we never needed
Any more than this
Any more than this

Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
I know I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire
The way they should
The way the blue could pull me in
If they only would
If they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else
That hides away

But you and me
We're worlds to part
With aching looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands can make
Oh I just take as much as you can throw
And then I'll throw it all away
And then I'll throw it all away
Like throwing faces at the sky
Like throwing arms around

Yesterday
I stood and stared
Wide-eyed in front of you
And the face I saw looked back
The way I wanted it to
But I just can't hide my tears away
The way you do

Elise, believe I never wanted this
I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
I thought you were the girl that I always dreamed about
But I let the dream go
And the promises broke
And the make-believe ran out...

Oh Elise, It doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out
Every way to smile
Forget
And make-believe we never needed
Any more than this
Any more than this

And every time I try to pick it up
Like falling sand
As fast as I pick it up
It runs away through my clutching hands
But there's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do at all..
