"Sometimes" as written by Felice Mancini and Henry Nicola Mancini....
With eyes wide shut we lay stagnant awake
Safe for now in this wonderous state
Lost at a crossroad that's missing a sign
How do we know if they made it alive
There's something lurking in the distance ahead
Fragments of light shine away from the dead
They fantasize fury, no time left to stop
Its darkness approaching now we're at a loss

Sometimes, when all that's lost remains
Drink from the fountain of youth and never age again
Sometimes we jump across to every cloud
Fly away get lost and never be found

Sometimes, when all that's lost remains
Drink from the fountain of youth and never age again
Sometimes we jump across to every cloud
Fly away get lost and never be found

There's something lurking from the shadows within
Stealing the colour and life from my skin
They fantasize fury at no extra cost
Darkness approaches now we're at a loss

Ah
Ah

Sometimes, when all that's lost remains
Drink from the fountain of youth and never age again
Sometimes we jump across to every cloud
Fly away get lost and never be found

Sometimes, when all that's lost remains
Drink from the fountain of youth and never age again
Sometimes we jump across to every cloud
Fly away get lost and never be found

Never be found,
Never be found (Ah)
Never be found (Ah)
Never be found (Ah)
Ah

    My InterpretationLove the song + clip. Watching the film clip, and with lines like "Drink from the fountain of youth and never age again," I think it's about going going through life, and wanting to stay in your prime.

    "Safe for now in this wonderous state"
    Living in the present, at the 'prime' of life (whenever that is!).

    "There's something lurking from the shadows within
    Stealing the colour and life from our skin"
    I think the thing lurking is ageing. It hides in the background and slowly steals your youthfulness.

    "Drink from the fountain of youth and never age again
    Sometimes we jump across to every cloud
    Fly away, get lost and never be found"
    Kind of seems to me like a Peter Pan reference. Maybe not directly, but hey who knows.

    General CommentI really enjoyed this song. It has this oddly grandiose feeling about it, as if it puts everything into some vast perspective.
    Most of all, this song makes me think of my friends, and leaving them behind. It even makes me a bit sad.

    Another gem to come out of Australia.
