Just Like Heaven

"Just Like Heaven" is one of those songs with wings.

I'm in love with Katie Melua's cover. It's cuz I'm a girl, I know.

"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" he said
"The one that makes me laugh" he said
And threw his arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed his face and I kissed his neck
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make him glow
"Why are you so far away?" he said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"

Soft and only
Lost and lonely
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe his name
I opened up my eyes
I found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only boy I ever loved
And drowned him deep inside of me

Soft and only
Lost and lonely
Just like heaven

The Cure version has a completely different feel:

Love the Dinosaur Jr. cover too (and I love the video).
