The Cure's, "Cut Here"

I should've stopped to think, I should've made the time;

But I didn't, and now it's all too late;
It's over and you're gone.

Robert Smith wrote this dancey number about his friend Billy MacKenzie (from The Associates), who died by suicide - it's about how Smith regrets not spending more time with him while he had the chance.
