sumisu-san A humble beginning for what I feel is one of the most underrated alternative bands of all time. "Ten Little Girls" sure has the sound of the early 90s to it, what with its shoegaze-y guitar work and the funky rapping during the bridge. It's the title track and "No Escape from Heaven" though that might have been an early indicator of Curve's particular charm. Pretty rad. Favorite track: Blindfold.

Scumbag So this is where it began... Curve were easily one of the greatest bands of the '90s and a huge part of my listening experiences of that decade. Toni Halliday's breathy and incredibly seductive vocals work so flawlessly with Dean Garcia's distinctive and highly influencial "wall-of-sound" instrumentation and production! Favorite track: Ten Little Girls.

Som Shankar A gorgeous and unique song that I fell forever in love with the first second I heard it. And Deborah, I'm still so very sorry for breaking your import copy of this CD! Thank you for this music. Thank you so much. Favorite track: Ten Little Girls.

Ten Little Girls

You think of no one but yourself you see the rest of us as fools, you think of no-one but yourself you see the rest of us as fools, he said don't feel guilty, don't go crazy, don't get paranoid with me. You play the prophet like a man it makes no sense in the overall master plan, she said don't feel guilty, don't go crazy, don't get paranoid with me. You can't push your luck around you can't push your luck around don't go crazy. Don't feel feel feel don't get get get (You can't push your luck around) (You can't push your luck around) Ten little girls come out to play they don't stand a chance they got blown away say it isn't so, ten little boys come out to play they don't stand a chance they got blown away say it isn't so, nine little girls got blown away no, no, no, no they didn't even have their own place to stay say it isn't so, nine little boys got blown away no, no, no, no they didn't even have their own place to stay say it isn't so, the arrogance of the youth.

I Speak Your Every Word

I spoke to you just the other day I hear your voice from far away I can smell deception in your every word maybe I'm dreaming and my vision is blurred there's something inside you I see pictures of children I speak your every word Ahh oh ahh oh You, are my saviour you've come to fix me good there's something about you that makes me feel angry and misunderstood Ahh oh ahh oh There's something inside you there's something about you I speak your every word Ahh oh ahh oh ahh oh ahh oh ahh oh

Blindfold

You better believe it ahh ahh You better believe it ahh ahh You better believe it ahh ahh You better believe it ahh ahh In a conversation talking of nothing we were drinking sweet wine comforting our one and only in our single business we have become jealous satisfied with our desolation wrapped in our vivid dreams I remember the two days that mean alot to me I remember the two days where every hour was a day every minute was a lifetime where the ocean was a sea and you dragged me into the mountains on a flimsy guarantee the stronger the man the stronger the woman if it ended now would you be willing I've given you everything I've given you nothing I used to think of angels but that's all gone I used to dream of love and kisses wanting to belong but I'd tear around the corners blindfolded to the world I used to think that candyfloss was only made for girls see how it feels for me do you believe in me? Hard-headed sense of failure in a narrow mind I never used to think about the hurt I left behind but now it falls upon me like winter snow now I turn the same corners when there's no place left to go the stronger the man the stronger the woman if it ended now would you be willing do you believe in me? this is my own private hour see how it feels for me this is my own private hour could you love me? could you love me? could you love me? could you love me?
Track Name: No Escape From Heaven
No Escape From Heaven

I can see through your eyes to the back of your mind all you've said is fiction the blind leading the blind I'd like to take your clothes off and play for a while you'll hold my hand in summertime we'll walk for miles and you'd be mine hold my hand in summertime you are mine There's no escape from heaven try as you might there's no escape from heaven Lie on the floor don't open your eyes just listen to the sweetness of this lullaby break my heart in anger hit me in love push me into danger give me that shove hold my hand in summertime we'll walk for miles and you'd be mine hold my hand in summertime you are mine There's no escape from heaven try as you might there's no escape from heaven there's no escape from heaven try as you might there's no escape from heaven Hold my hand in summertime Hold me, hold me hold me like you used to hold me, hold me hold me like you used to
