"Sometimes" as written by and Tim Wheeler....
Can't sleep in the city, you're far away
Cigarettes keep you skinny
And your mind off the rain
Sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes

Feelings are distant, I know guilt by name
It was the hardest thing, watching you slip away
Sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes it happens feeling die
Whole years are lost in the blink of an eye
We once had it all but event conspired
Sometimes

Good morning sweet thing you're safe in my hand
I am no saint, but I understand
Sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes it happens feeling die
Whole years are lost in the blink of an eye
We once had it all but event conspired
Sometimes
Now that it's over, it is through
It gets me every time I think of you
Sometimes It happens, feelings die
Sometimes

I miss your warm skin, beside me at night
I miss your flesh, in the dawn light
Sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes it happens feeling die
Whole years are lost in the blink of an eye
We once had it all but event conspired
Sometimes
Saturn's decline in my star sign
Seasonal adjustments, stars realign
Sometimes it happens feeling die
Sometimes, sometimes

    General Commentkinda like an 'oh well, nevermind, stuff happens' approach to dealing with a breakup? has this weird effect on me... i think because i listened to it so much on holiday last year, it brings back memories... bootiful song all the same though :)

    General Commentit's kinda like it was a mutual breakup and he misses what she brought to him but understands that stuff happens and not all relationships last....but it's kind of a break up song showing that not all break ups are sloppy

    General CommentGREAT song...I don't know... the meaning is obvious, the music combined with the words makes this song so great. A whole year does go by so fast... "in the blink of an eye.."

    General CommentMy boyfriend (we're back together) gave me this song after we broke up and i love it still haha.

    this song tells itself out. Meaning, even if something you had with the person was strong the feeling will eventually it was fade and you can't do anything about it

    General CommentTo me... this song is about the effect that distance often has on what otherwise appears a wonderful relationship.

    General CommentThis is a bloody great song.
    It is basically about how it feels to know that a relationship is dead and it just needs to be vocalised, it isn't a sad song at all, it is just like "this is the way it is..."

    General CommentThis is my ultimate song. I've had it non-stop in my head for 6 years now. It actually is the one song I got to know ASH with.
    The chorus is not really in phase with the rest of the song. Because it the chorus, everything seem to be finished between the one guy and the girl he is with, when in the rest of the song, the one guy is so much in love.
    This song has some great lines:

    "Good morning sweet thing, you're safe in my hands" Can you actually imagine Tim Wheeler say this to you the morning after?!?

    "I miss your warm skin besside me at night, and I miss your flesh in the dawn light" which is said in such a sweet voice.

    This is my very favourite song. And I'm sure it'll stay in my head for a long long time.

    General CommentThe Best Song Ever For me.. Tim. You re really2 Fantastic. I dun know how you can make all of this lovely sweet sad Melody and the lyrics absoluelty wonderful. This song is really have a deep inside. It show's that thet oredy broke up but the memories still occured sometimes.. Its just remembering The one she's love but as it say nothing we can do. "lost in blink off eyes". So just remembering It with a warm sad happy ending. inally This Verse is really touches my heart " Now that it is over, it is through
    It gets me every time I think of you ".. :)
