"Sometimes" as written by Felice Mancini and Henry Nicola Mancini....
Pressure fried the coldest head
Bent to the side wishing he was dead
And I would still defend
I would still defend

I give up on it all
I give up on the greed
I give up on the ones
Who give up on me

Held up by the poor somewhere
There are unaware but I know we are scared
If I was to give in
The fight would soon begin

So I give up on it all
I give up on the greed
I'll give up on the ones
Who'll give up on me

Sometimes sunshine's
Sunshine
Sometimes the sun shines
Sunshine

Did you give up on it all
Did you give up on the greed
Did you give up on the ones
Who gave up on me

    General Commentthis song seems to be like a bitter sweet cry to ne one who is willing to listen
    * first rule of evaluating lyrics is to look for the speaker ***the speaker is not usually that singer***
    this song is about pain and giving up on trival things
    mostly stupid negative relationships... while the main chorse is "sometimes the sun shines" which leads me to infer that the song is telling us to have hope. Perhaps this has to do with relationships perhaps not either way it is saying i will give up on things that hurt me and wait for things to get better

    General Commentanother thing i forgot....what the song means to me! i think hes saying hes tired of giving himself out to utter arseholes who do nothing but piss him off and suck donkey testicles (could be put into better terms i know, but, do it yourself!) and so hes giving up on them...

    General Commentthis band, this singer, this artist, an incarnation of jeff buckley....some1 out there knows what i am talkin about...they were both friends...unfortunatly jeff died in 97....and jimmy came with these lyrics...protesting against guns and violence....if any of you want to check out theire debut 8 track album....u might find it online...it was self produced only 500 tapes were distributed...and that was in 93...well i have a copy ....its awesome....their first album is really against guns and violence but in this album, distorted lulabies is more dark, more bout askin the specific yet general questions in life, what we do in life...in the end what is it mean...well anyway....i really really like this band. I don't know why i like to listen to PAIN, thas right for those of you are lost ....jimmy's voice, passions blending in with his lyrics are PAIN...everyday i listen to it...and my heart aches wanting to cry out yet there are no tears.
    ok dok...this is me ..>SCAR////let me know what u think ....
