It’s all about Mary

Who loves Robert Smith knows who Mary Poole is. His childhood girlfriend is also his muse. They first met while at school, at 14 years old. As he says, he was lucky. He invited her to be his partner in a drama class assignment and won a lifetime partner.

Mary inspired many classics of The Cure, from Charlotte Sometimes to Just Like Heaven. She appears in the 1987 video of Just Like Heaven. She dances with Robert, as his angel savior.

Just Like Heaven was an engagement gift. Robert was already working in one of his most beloved songs, Lovesong.

Lovesong was a wedding gift to Mary, in 1988. According to the musician, near his 30th birthday, he realized he had spent more than half of it with Mary. At this point, he was comfortable talking straight about his feelings for her. He jokes it’s a simple song and that, at the time, she preferred diamonds. She’s changed her mind.

The band didn’t believe in Lovesong‘s success. Even Adele recorded it. It is extremely romantic.

Robert Smith, em 1989 (Ebet Roberts/Redferns)

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

Robert and Mary are married for 32 years. She was touched when the band joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As we were.

See The Cure singing Lovesong, in 2013, in Rio.
