Screengrab from the JUST LIKE HEAVEN music video

Last night, I dreamt about a women from my younger days...

She was taller than I was, had blond locks, and great legs. Unfortunately, she was even more fucked-up than I was.

Those were not good times, for many reasons.

When I became involved with her, a song called JUST LIKE HEAVEN was receiving air-time on one of my favorite radio stations ( KROQ ). This song was special to me.

I never got to see THE CURE in concert. I wanted to go with her, but it never happened, and I doubt anything good would have come from it.

Anyway, it all ended badly...

We worked at the same company. The day she left, I felt her eyes burning my back, then I heard her walk out the door. She never even said goodbye, and neither did I.

She split for parts unknown... Good for her.....

Screengrabs of Robert Smith dancing with his wife Mary Poole... From the CURE's music video of JUST LIKE HEAVEN

Below are the lyrics to JUST LIKE HEAVEN - by Robert Smith

"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her 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 her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you?"
"That I'm in love with you?"

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, 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 her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone, alone, alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven.....
