All the faces
All the voices blur
Change to one face
Change to one voice

Prepare yourself for bed
The light seems bright
And glares on white walls
All the sounds of Charlotte sometimes

Into the night with Charlotte sometimes

Night after night she lay alone in bed
Her eyes so open to the dark
The streets all looked so strange
They seemed so far away but Charlotte did not cry

The people seemed so close
Some playing expressionless games
The people seemed so close
So many other names

Sometimes I'm dreaming
Where all the other people dance
Sometimes I'm dreaming
Charlotte sometimes

Sometimes I'm dreaming
Expressionless the trance
Sometimes I'm dreaming
So many different names

Sometimes I'm dreaming
The sounds all stay the same
Sometimes I'm dreaming
She hopes to open shadowed eyes on a different world

Come to me scared princess, Charlotte sometimes

On that bleak track see the sun is gone again
The tears were pouring down her face
She was crying and crying for a girl
Who died so many years before

Sometimes I dream
Where all the other people dance
Sometimes I dream
Charlotte sometimes

Sometimes I dream
The sounds all stay the same
Sometimes I'm dreaming
So many different names

Sometimes I dream, sometimes I dream

Charlotte sometimes
Crying for herself
Charlotte sometimes
Dreams a wall around herself

But it's always with love
With so much love
It looks like everything else
Charlotte sometimes

So far away, glass sealed and pretty, Charlotte Sometimes
