  • (Listen
    Sometimes just-
    When I think of other things
    Other things
    Think about
    I still-)

    When I think of all the things my mother said
    When I think of all the feelings I hid from her
    Oh, in many, many ways, I'm still a young boy
    Waiting patiently for 4 p.m

    But I loved her
    With my last breath
    And I loved her with a love that was strong as death
    And I loved her
    When she was unkind
    And I loved her, I loved her, a dangerous mind

    Sometimes when I look up at the sky
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on
    Sometimes when I stare up at the ceiling
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on

    I wonder if her touch will ever fade
    Is she waiting in the garden for us to play
    Yes, in many many ways I'm still a young boy
    With all those questions in my petrol-blue eye

    But I loved her
    With my last breath
    And I loved her with a love that was strong as death
    And I loved her
    When she was unkind
    And I loved her, I loved her, with a dangerous mind

    Sometimes when I look up at the sky
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on
    Sometimes, oh when I just feel like screaming
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on
    Sometimes when I don't know what is mine
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on
    Sometimes when I can't control my feelings
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on

    One, two!

    Sometimes when I look up at the sky
    She leads me on
    She still leads me on
