    1. I would guess If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, before a new song title.

    2. Hmm, but didn't he also write the words "If Only" on someone's copy of Happy The Man a few weeks ago? I see a pattern emerging here...

    3. I was hoping it would be a reference to a new song because of the summary of the interview from that show: "I will play a new song, in Ireland. I will play it once."

      I thought maybe it was on his mind. But they did play IOTWCS that night... so I guess we'll know for sure Sept 1st. : )

    4. I would say "Cut here"... the song will always be the "If only" song to me... :D

    5. I remember the same thing that Nico did:

      When I first saw it I thought of IOTWCS but now after this new pic, I'm not so sure...

  4. Seems it's been a running theme through Cure lyrics throughout the years...If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, Cut, Pictures Of You, Cut Here, Happy The Man, probably a few others that have slipped my mind!

  5. Maybe a second pic will show up with Simon eating part of a piece of paper that has "...this were turkey" written on it?

  6. Robert often says it in concert after someone yells a request or when he wishes they were doing something different.

  7. Does anybody remember of a paper Robert wrote I think after the Bizarre Festival '98? "If only tonight I could be myself", something like that.
