From: Winston Campbell

Subject: COLD by The Cure




(words by Robert Smith, music by Simon Gallup, Laurence Tolhurst, and

Robert Smith)


This gloomy song comes off of the angry and gloomy cure album -Pornography-

and never lets up for air. I am not too sure about what is playing that

line, a distorted bass, guitar, or keyboard but I have comprised it to be

like this:


I play this usual, meaning I tune my low E-string down to C. The intro



E --------------------

B --------------------

G --------------------

D -----------4--------

A -1---3--4------4--3-

C --------------------


After this, the drum enters, and the bass (or guitar) goes like this (as

if played on a guitar with its low string tuned to C):


E -------------------------------

B -------------------------------

G -------------------------------

D -------------------------------

A -------------------------------

C -10---------8--5--6-------0--1-


This line continues out throughout the song. The chords are simple, they

are just Bbm to Gb and I play them like this:


Bbm Gb


E -xx---------------6------------

B -11---------------7------------

G -10---------------6------------

D -11---------------x------------

A -xx---------------x------------

C -10---------8--5--6-------0--1-



That is basically how the song goes. The lyrics are:



Your back was turned

Curled like an embryo

Take another face

You will be kissed again

I was cold as I mouthed the words

And crawled across the mirror

I wait

Await the next breath

Your name

Like ice into my heart


A shallow grave

A monument to the ruined age

Ice in my eyes

And eyes like ice do not move

Screaming at the moon

Another past time

Your name

Like ice into my heart


Everything as cold as life

Can no one save you?


As cold as silence

And you never say a word


Your name

Like ice into my heart

Your name

Like ice into my heart
