"sometimes" as written by Felice Mancini and Henry Nicola Mancini....
she can never walk a straight line
except sometimes in the morning
she wants to race herself against time
but i think that time's gonna win

always looking for someone
looking for somewhere to go
always has to have some
she only plays if she's won

but sometimes, sometimes
she'll fall down
yeh she's so far in

telephone rings at three am
two more coming in
tonight she's out of her mind again
one more step toward oblivion

but i cant do this again
open her eyes alone again
she wears her heart like her skin
she's always outside-in

but sometimes, sometimes
she'll fall down
yeh she's so far in

put up a sign
beside the bridge
it says "dont look inside"
cause you might not jump in

if you change your mind

shes so far
so far in
shes so far in

oh shes so far in

    General Commentas howie beck himself has said before, his lyrics are often self-explanatory which is why he doesn't tend to discuss them. the nice thing is - they are somehow obvious, yet still leave room for imagination - and you can always relate to them, because howie writes about things he has encountered. and these are things many of us know - for example a vulnerable, self-destructive girl as described in this song.
