Close my eyes
Feel me now
I don't know how you could not love me now
You will know, with her feet down to the ground
Over there, and I want true love to grow
You can't hide, oh no, from the way I feel

Turn my head
Into sound
I don't know when I lay down on the ground
You will find your hand down hurts to love
Never cared, and the world turned hearts to love
We will see, oh now, in a day or two

You will wait
See me go
I don't care, when you're head turned all along
You will wait, when I turn my eyes around
Overhead when I hold you next to me
Overhead, to know the way I see

Close my eyes
Feel me now
I don't know, maybe you could not hurt me now
Here alone, when I feel down too
Over there, when I await true love for you
You can hide, oh now, the way I do
You can see, oh now, oh the way I do

    General Commentthis song is such a wonderful piece of production. i can't make out more than half the words in it, but then again, i've never really bothered to since my appreciation of the song lies in its texture. i seem to recall it was billy corgan who said, in his praise of the 'loveless' record, that this album was unique in that no one up to that point had been able to produce the effect of swirling guitars quite like kevin shields. that idea has definitely stuck with me because the word swirling frequently comes to mind when i hear "sometimes."

    and congrats to the people that heard this song "like... at least two years before the movie." but even in 2001 (which is two years prior to the movie's release), you were still beaten to the punch by plenty of other elitist snobs, since that year marked the tenth anniversary of the song's release. so i guess you're basically as behind the times as the rest of us.

    needless to say, 'lost in translation' definitely turned me on to this song. it's a fantastic movie and the fact that it had great music in it made it all the better. and i don't understand why certain people need to have a sense of superiority when a movie turns other people onto a song or artist that they're already familiar with. there have been so many great songs/artists that i've been introduced to as a result of seeing certain films: "alone again or" by love from 'bottle rocket,' elliott smith from 'good will hunting,' the beta band's "dry the rain" from 'high fidelity,' aimee mann from 'magnolia'... it would be quite the list if i actually mentioned every instance of a movie turning me on to music i liked. so don't hate on 'lost in translation' or sofia coppola--she just brought a lot more, much-deserved attention to my bloody valentine. nothing wrong with that.
