Sometime they say that love is blind
But I think that dumb is what they had in mind
I could let it go, but I'd rather know
If I sit around will another show

Sometime I get to fly so high
That the sun burns my wings but I will fly
Just a little too far 'cause that's where you are
And I won't bring you down, believe in me

Sometime I like to sit around
And just contemplating sitting 'round
I could lay in bed like my Momma said
"Don't just do something, sit around instead"

Sometime if I may say myself
I'm not bad at life, I'm not good as well
And though life goes on, I can plainly see
Just what is it for, if it's not for me

Sometime though it's a big surprise
I made compromise the thing I most desire
I can say with pride, hold my head up high
That I had a great idea but never mind

Nowhere
I'm going nowhere
Nowhere is where I wanna be
And I'm good for nothing, nothing is good enough for me
Anything, anything can come to anybody
Everything, everything can come to someone, sometime
Oh please
I'm good for nothing, nothing is good enough for me
Anything, anything can come to anybody
Everything, everything can come to someone, sometime

Sometime opportunity passes right by me
Didn't even slow
I can't breathe and think and I need a drink
All this common sense made a fool of me

Sometime I like to sit around
And just contemplating sitting 'round
I can lay in bed like my Momma said
"Don't just do something, sit around instead"

Sometime I like to fly so high
That the sun burns my wings but I will fly
Just a little too far, 'cause that's where you are
And I won't bring you down, believe in me

Sometime I get me all confused
And the reasons why, are confusing too
I could be with you, try to sort it out
If I tell the truth, I like to lie about

Sometime though it's a big surprise
I made compromise the thing I most desire
I can say with pride, hold my head up high
That I had a great idea but never mind

Sometime I like to sit around
And just contemplating sitting 'round
Although life goes on, I can plainly see
All this common sense made a fool of me

I don't want to live but I can't resist
I got some reasons and I've made amends
I'm gonna drown before my ship comes in
And I forgot to ring my Mum again
And life ain't good without cigarette
