"Until She Comes" is a 1991 song by the English rock band the Psychedelic Furs, taken from their seventh studio album, World Outside. Written by the Psychedelic Furs and produced by the band with Stephen Street, it was released in June as the album's first single. The 12" version included a remix by Hugh Padgham.

Composition and reception[edit]

The lyrics of "Until She Comes" depict a metaphorical story about drug addiction.[1] The single spent two weeks at No. 1 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart in September 1991.[2] Author Dave Thompson described the song as "bittersweet" and reminiscent of the band's 1981 single "Pretty in Pink".[3]
