"Sometimes" as written by and James Dustin Payseur....
Well I can understand
But I really don't care to know
And you can take my hand
But I don't care where we go
And if you think you know
What I'm thinking about
Then I can read your thoughts
Without any doubt
So we can go
Well let's go home

And if I happen to fall
Then please don't pick me up
Cause we're enjoying our time
And I wouldn't want to interrupt
They worked out so well
When you discovered that it's all the same
We get lost sometimes
But the reality will keep us sane

I know I think too much
I know I waste my time
And I can't figure out
Which one is yours or mine
That's fine
I really couldn't say I mind

    General CommentThis whole album is absolutely beautiful to me. It creates a landscape of sunshine and rain and bittersweet love, a world that's completely realistic but also full of dreams and disappointments, fantasies, daydreams, lies, wishes, hopes, everything that we wish we could change but also love.

    There's something incredibly innocent about this song. This particular song reminds me of a certain friend of mine. We have an intimate relationship, although we share the same gender. There's nothing sexual about our relationship, but we love each other. This song reminds me of that kind of innocent, intimate love, no matter the age or gender.

    I love discovering new music. I actually just walked down to Everyday Music with a $20 allowance bill in my hand and saw this album on the shelf and just grabbed it. I don't know what posessed me to, but it's one of the best purchases I've made.

    General CommentIt sounds like the first line is "Well i can understand, but i really dont care to know". i dont really know i just found this band yesterday.

    When nothing happens for a certain amount of time this is where you end up. Thats what i think this song is about.

    General CommentI think it's just about being apathetic towards life, yet enjoying your time just the same.

    My InterpretationWell I can understand
    But I really don't care to know
    ( Speaking about when your being Born, understanding is with your spirit but you don't care where you came from as far as birth)


    And you can take my hand
    But I don't care where we go
    ( Speaking about growing up taking a hand of guidance knowing you don't care where you go with your parents and other family members and friends)


    And if you think you know
    What I'm thinking about
    Then I can read your thoughts
    Without any doubt
    So we can go
    Well let's go home
    (Speaking about a child's understanding of where they were born from and going Home means telling the child about the high heavens and the homes in the heavens)

    And if I happen to fall
    Then please don't pick me up
    (Speaking about a baby falling when learning how to walk.)


    Cause we're enjoying our time
    And I wouldn't want to interrupt
    (Speaking about growing up having a good time and witnessing your parents work real hard not interrupting)


    They worked out so well
    When you discovered that it's all the same
    We get lost sometimes
    But the reality will keep us sane
    (Speaking about how work is good and sometimes you lose your path on life's road but then reality keeps you living sane)

    I know I think too much
    I know I waste my time
    (Speaking about growing up not working wasting time)

    And I can't figure out
    Which one is yours or mine
    That's fine
    I really couldn't say I mind
    (Speaking about sharing as a young child not minding who's is who's drink or food)

    My InterpretationWell I can understand
    But I really don't care to know
    And you can take my hand
    But I don't care where we go
    And if you think you know
    And if you think you know
    What I'm thinking about
    Then I can read your thoughts
    Without any doubt

    He wants to be together with the one he loves, and it doesn't matter to him where they go or what they do, as long as he is with her. And he loves that they share so many common interests:


    And if I happen to fall
    Then please don't pick me up
    Cause we're enjoying our time
    And I wouldn't want to interrupt

    He knows that it is a surreal and precious experience to spend time with her, and he doesn't want to be reminded of reality without her.

    incredible song. it's scary how accurate this is, because i'm experiencing exactly the same thing with this amazing girl i'm in love with.
