Million Reasons The Cure

"The Cure" is a song written and produced by Lady Gaga and Nick Monson with co-writing credits with DJ White Shadow, Lukas Nelson and Mark Nilan, and co-production with Detroit City. It was released as a single on April 15, 2017.

BackgroundEdit

Gaga debuted the song at Coachella on April 15, 2017 and was released at the end of the set.

WritingEdit

The Cure” is a feel-good anthem about unconditional love for someone.

During her first live performance of this song at Coachella 2017, Gaga told the crowd:

“I love you guys so much. I have been through so much in my life and I’ve seen so much. And you cure me every time with your love”

That performance was the debut of the song, which was released on streaming platforms and iTunes shortly after.

In early March 2017, Gaga was spotted venturing back into the recording studio. Many fans speculated a follow up to 2016’s Joanne was in the works, until the release of “The Cure.” Gaga confessed before premiering the song at Coachella that she “had trouble keeping the next part of her show a secret”.

The song is highly speculated to be written in tribute to Gaga’s dear friend, Sonja Durham, who was battling a losing fight with cancer at that time and sadly passed away a few months later.

As seen in Gaga’s documentary Five Foot Two, she gets a call from Sonja telling her things were going worse. Gaga tells her to stay strong, and that she will be with her right away, cancelling her other work-related plans. After hanging up, she tears up and says “I’m losing everyone I love”.

She might not have the Cure to Sonja’s cancer, but she will do her best to make her feel loved and cherished during her last days.

Critical Reception & Chart Performance Edit

Most of the reviews of the song are positive describing it as a fresh and catchy summer hit.

Immediately after its release, the single got into the iTunes charts in over 70 countries and took the #1 spot in about 40 of them, including the USA, UK, France, Spain, Australia, etc. It became the first (and so far the only) song released by a solo female artist to top the worldwide iTunes chart in 2017 by dethroning Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You' which was on the lead position for 97 days.

The song debuted at #23 at the UK singles chart.

LyricsEdit

I'll undress you, 'cause you're tired,
Cover you as you desire,
When you fall asleep inside my arms.
May not have the fancy things,
But I'll give you everything,
You could ever want - it's in my arms.

So, baby, tell me yes,
And I will give you everything.
So, baby, tell me yes,
And I will be all yours tonight.
So, baby, tell me yes,
And I will give you everything,
I will be right by your side.

If I can't find the cure, I'll,
I'll fix you with my love.
No matter what you know, I'll,
I'll fix you with my love.
And if you say you're okay,
I'm gonna heal you anyway.
Promise I'll always be there,
Promise I'll be the cure.

Rub your feet, your hands, your legs,
Let me take care of it, babe,
Close your eyes, I'll sing your favourite song.
I wrote you this lullaby,
Hush now, baby, don't you cry,
Anything you want could not be wrong.

So, baby, tell me yes,
And I will give you everything.
So, baby, tell me yes,
And I will be all yours tonight.
So, baby, tell me yes,
And I will give you everything,
I will be right by your side.

If I can't find the cure, I'll,
I'll fix you with my love.
No matter what you know, I'll,
I'll fix you with my love.
And if you say you're okay,
I'm gonna heal you anyway.
Promise I'll always be there,
Promise I'll be the cure.
Promise I'll be the cure.

I'll fix you with my love,
I'll fix you with my love.

If I can't find the cure, I'll,
I'll fix you with my love.
No matter what you know, I'll,
I'll fix you with my love.
And if you say you're okay,
I'm gonna heal you anyway.
Promise I'll always be there,
Promise I'll be the cure.
Promise I'll be the cure.

I’ll fix you with my love.
