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 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 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

Bernie from BurnsviewThat's not Janet. I've seen pictures of Janet Smith/Thompson. She has higher cheekbones than the girl in the video. Do you really think Robert Smith would star his sister in a Cure video?
Gino from Caracas, VenezuelaThe girl of the video is Robert Smith's sister Janet. She later married The Cure's guitarist Porl Thompson.
Herve from Brooklyn, NyMembers of the Cure have often said that they hated the video to "charlotte sometimes"
Jon-michael from Augusta, Georgia, Gai read the book charlotte sometimes and i loved it. i love the song and video.!! the cure is perfect.
Savannah from Salem, InI love the video. Its extremely eerie.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
