Blind Melon – Sometimes lyrics

There's a price you will pay when you're on top of the world
Oh, when everyone wants to be your friend or companion
There's a fine line between your own heaven and hell
Oh, when everything goes your way you still feel abandoned

Sometimes, nothing's better than something
Sometimes, you're better off lonely

Why is it when times are good, everyone sticks around
But when things start to go the other way,
They split and forget you
My own philosophy has been good to me
I try to stay to myself and don't get caught in the shit storm

Sometimes, nothing's better than something
Sometimes, you're better off lonely
And my airplane is taking off slowly

Most of the time I really don't mind
It's pointless to waste all of my time, thinking about this shit
I spend most of my days trying to unwind and forget about it

I still worry if you're ok
I still wonder if you're the same...

Remember when times were good and so simple-minded
And then somewhere along the way we lost all connections
When you strip away, all that's left is a guilty conscience
If I took a guess, I would bet you think this song is about you
Don't you, don't you, don't you

Sometimes, nothing's better than something
Sometimes, you're better off lonely
My heart is stranded and frozen
And my airplane is taking off slowly

Most of the time I really don't mind
It's pointless to waste all of my time, thinking about this shit
I spend most of my days trying to unwind and forget about it

I still worry if you're ok
I still wonder if you're the same...
