about

Free download of The Silence Kit's cover of "Winter" by The Cure. available here. The Cure's original was only released as a studio outtake / rough demo on the Three Imaginary Boys deluxe reissue. The Silence Kit set out to imagine a fully realized version of the song: what the Cure likely would/could have turned the song into if they had revisited it. Rearranging the song in a style more reminiscent of the "Faith" or "Pornography" albums, and by piling on shoegaze guitars and ominous synths, The Silence Kit managed to make the song their own.

THIS MUSIC HAS BEEN MIXED TO BE PLAYED LOUD
SO TURN IT UP

Originally released as part of The Blog That Celebrates Itself's tribute album "The Cure: In Other Voices" which is available here: theblogthatcelebratesitself.bandcamp.com/album/va-the-cure-in-other-voices

lyrics

And so it's forever, always ends sometime
Now I'm alone, below the cold of a painted sky
Remembering a love that became a lie
Knowing I can't scream I can only cry forever

And so love goes by upon the wind
Goes by as though it had never been
I lift my hand and wipe the tears
The tears

I just can't go on
Now my love has gone away

Now my imaginary world is fading fast
Dreams I dreamed could never last
I left my innocence in the past
With my broken heart

And so love goes by upon the wind
Goes by as though it had never been
I lift my hand and wipe the tears
The tears

I just can't go on
Now my love has gone away

And so love goes by upon the wind
Goes by as though it had never been
I lift my hand and wipe the tears
The tears

I just can't go on
Now my love has gone away

I just can't go on
Now my love has gone
I just can't go on
Now my love has gone away
I just can't go on
Now my love has gone away
