Charlotte Sometimes Lyrics - The Cure

Review The Song (19)



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

sponsored links
the people seemed so close
playing expressionless games
the people seemed
so close
so many
different 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
there are 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
of charlotte sometimes
so far away
glass sealed and pretty
charlotte sometimes

the streets all looked so strange they seemed so far away | Reviewer: Mikey J. | 3/15/14

As with a lot of the songs Robert was writing during this period the lyrics are absolutely gorgeous. Love how he uses the multiple vocals to make the words come pouring in like your're in some kind of dream sequence. Words really can't describe how amazing this makes me feel when I listen to it turned up.

Love the band, the song, and the book | Reviewer: talwrite | 9/14/12

I've always been a fan of The Cure. This was one of my favorite songs. Only a short time ago, did I find out that the song is based on Penelope Farmer's book, Charlotte Sometimes. Even though it is a children's book, I went out and bought it, and loved reading it.

Great | Reviewer: bravit | 7/6/12

i listened to the cure since 1988 ....dont forget boys dont cry , to wish impossible things , trust ... i really miss the days of good music ... the lyrics today are filled with disrespect and bigotry and JUNK !!!!

Alternative ballad | Reviewer: Jorj98 | 12/9/11

Though ballad in our days means some crappy ass-licking moaning, this is how ballad should be. Art and feel in every word, that's why I listen alternative music, first of all it's because of the words, and this is a good choice, mind that. Though I'm 20, I recon belonging to the past in thoughtful maner then I belong to my own days, and this is one good reason for that.

she was crying and crying for a girl... | Reviewer: Chloe | 12/22/10

How i wish i grew up in the 80's... the music was just something incredible.. not like now a days just a load of bull! I'm currently 15 at the moment, and The Cure has to be one of my favorite bands of all time. They have such a unique sound to them... and although I didn't grow up with them & their music.. I still have memories of listening to "A Night Like This" when i was really young (Thank you Dad) haha & ever since a my dad let me have their album "Staring At The Sea: The Singles 1979 - 1985" I've just been in love; such strange music YET it works!

LOVE THE CURE :)

Sometimes... | Reviewer: Kat | 12/5/10

It is funny how a song can touch me over time. I think I heard it before but never really listened.

I was in high school in the late 80's and now I am going through something now in my life and this song is so profound to me. I feel like the girl in the video. Alice in wonderland going down the rabbit hole. Hauntingly beautiful.

goose bumps.. | Reviewer: dg | 9/17/10

Charlotte Sometimes | Reviewer: Hallowed | 10/28/09

The Cure came into my life in the late 80's. Their music is unlike any other that I heard. Maybe Earth Wind And Fire. I love the way you can feel the emotion of the music and the arrangements. Charlotte Sometimes is one of my favorites, I still Enjoy Facination Street, Plainsong, Disintergration, 1000 Hours, Like Cockatoos, A Night Like This, Sinking, The Hanging Garden, Burn, Apart, Doing the Unstuck, Closedown, Last Dance, Same Deep Water As You, and Caterpillar. The Greatest of all is when I Youtube videos that I never knew exists. Heal Your Heart Everyone. Peace

Glad young people like them | Reviewer: Winston | 9/1/09

Guess I am feeling older seeing that some really young people are posting here. You make proud! :-) I loved The Cure since 1987. I just can't believe they are still putting out haunting melody after melody after all these years. "Charlotte Sometimes" is probably their best early song...although I also love "A Forest".

Amazing song! | Reviewer: Ang | 4/18/09

I have always loved the book (by the same title) that inspired these wonderful lyrics, and Robert has managed to capture the haunting atmosphere the book always made me feel. This song is truly a masterpiece and is my favorite Cure song.

The live version from the "Concert" album 1984.. | Reviewer: dave | 1/26/08

..stands a good chance of being the best bit of culture in recent centuries. Fresh young Robert perfected dream language and sounds in a truly surreal experience. The band worked incredibly well that magic night; they had the help of higher powers. Even the audience screaming before and after adds. Hear the keyboard, the bass; fall into the dream.

The live version | Reviewer: bill | 9/11/07

WOW... you have top hear the live version of this song from "Paris" cd.... AMAZING!! One of the best live Cure songs (Along with "from the edge of the deep green sea" from "Show" album)

Milo | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/07

i love this song is just amazing!the lyrics make me feel great,this song is how the moon that shines with the light of the sun.
in a moonlight nighti saw myself iluminated going through the road.

beauty unsurpassed | Reviewer: Laura | 7/23/07

One of the most forlorn, haunting and beautiful songs ever written. Robert Smith may be silly, but his silliness is well appreciated here!

..she lays alone in bed.. | Reviewer: Lullaby | 7/15/07

I adore this song, the combination of its lyics and its sound.. It's like feeling lost in an empty and intimate place..That's how I feel when all the people look the same.. and the streets.. Charlotte sometimes crying for herself..
