  • Catalogue Essay

    If only tonight we could sleep In a bed made of flowers
    If only tonight we could fall
    In a deathless spell

    If only tonight we could slide
    Into deep black water
    And breathe
    And breathe…

    Then an angel would come
    With burning eyes like stars
    And bury us deep
    In his velvet arms

    And the rain would cry
    As our faces slipped away
    And the rain would cry

    (Lyrics for ‘If Only Tonight We Could Sleep’ by The Cure, 1987)
