The Cure — If Only Tonight We Could Sleep bass tabs

(submitted by LoudLon)
Song: If Only Tonight We Could Sleep
Artist: The Cure
Album: Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (1987)
Bassist: Simon Gallup
Tabbed by LoudLon for Big BassTabs.com

Requested by SeanCe

Standard tuning (EADG)

NOTE: Very simple song, consisting of only two riffs. There is only
one sung verse which appears just past the halfway point. As such I
didn't feel it necessary to break this down into sections. Instead
I've simply provided the two riffs, followed by an easy breakdown
telling you which riff to play, when, and how many times.
