The rock band The Cure first came together in 1976 in Crawley, West Sussex, England. Over the intervening four decades, the band’s line-up has changed repeatedly, the exception being principal songwriter and vocalist Robert Smith. Their debut album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), helped establish The Cure among the post-punk scene. It was later released with a different tracklist in the United States and Australia with the name Boys Don’t Cry. Later and more darker music made the band a prominent piece of the early goth music scene. The Cure has released 13 studio albums and sold well over 27 million albums.

Behind the unorthodox simplicity of the lyrics, it's quite often, from what I've heard portrayed as a love song. In my opinion and analysis, it's quite the opposite. Robert Smith doesn't acknowledge the subject until Friday, the day in which the character chooses to be in love. The song portrays love as losing its potency, in that people choose when to love, rather than letting the love choose them.

This song to me describes two city people in love that have met recently. It describes a dynamic relationship between two people ( the love cats),that are in a whirl world of their own. Perhaps, they new each other for a while and have only just realized what they've been missing out on.

BEST SONG EVER. It's also incredibly bizarre because it stands from the point of view of cats and how they jump, go through here and there, hang with one another in rapid movements, etc. It's really a story like no other and it has an excelent rhythm to it. When you listen to it, you can imagine cats going through the rooftops at night.
