The Cure - Prayers for Rain Lyrics

You shatter me your grip on me a hold on me
So dull it kills
You stifle me
Infectious sense of
Hopelessness and prayers for rain
I suffocate
I breathe in dirt
And nowhere shines but desolate
And drab the hours all spent on killing time
Again all waiting for the rain

You fracture me your hands on me a touch
So plain so stale it kills
You strangle me entangle me
In hopelessness and prayers for rain
I deteriorate, I live in dirt and nowhere glows but
Drearily and tired the hours all spent on killing
Time again all waiting for the rain

You fracture me, your hands on me, a touch
So plain so stale it kills
You strangle me, entangle me
In hopelessness and prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
