Whole years are lost in the blink of an eye

Can’t sleep in the city, you’re far away,
Cigarettes keep you skinny, and your mind off the rain,
Oh sometimes, sometimes,
Oh sometimes, sometimes

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

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

Good morning sweet thing, you’re safe in my hands,
I am no saint, but I understand,
Oh sometimes, sometimes,
Oh sometimes, sometimes

Sometimes, it happens feelings die,
Whole years are lost in the blink of an eye,
We once had it all but events 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,
Oh sometimes, sometimes,
Oh sometimes, sometimes

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

Sometimes, Ash, Free All Angels, June 2001

When I hear this song, I am back again at North Middlesex Hospital in the special care baby unit or driving around north east London in my little red rover metro. I love the intro guitar riff it makes me feel dreamy and sleepy.
