There's a storm outside, and the gap between crack and thunder
Crack and thunder, is closing in, is closing in
The rain floods gutters and makes a great sound on concrete
On a flat roof, there's a boy leaning against the wall of rain

    My favourite James song - epic

    “Okay Brian (Eno), we're ready to record 'Sometimes'.” I'd got the chorus ready and I hadn't told them. He's prowling around the floor while we were playing the start of the song, just waiting to see what I'd got. I sang the chorus and he kind of went white and sat down while we were playing. I thought: 'Oh shit, he doesn't like it'. When we finished he didn't say anything. He had his head in his hands on the desk and we all crowded round him and eventually he looked up and he said: “I've just experienced one of the highlights of my musical life.” We went: “Woah!” We were completely blown away. That someone we held in such high esteem could have such a physical, tangible reaction to that song. His reaction was one of our highlights of our musical life!

    Me agradan mucho las guitarras jangly y repetitivas de toda la cancion.

    One of their best - awesome live in concert. One of the greatest mysteries is why James wasn't huge in the states. One of my all time favorite bands.

    Such a good song,among their best,but their new stuff is as good as anything they,ve ever done but then i am biased as James can,t do anything wrong in my eyes

    Quite possibly my favorite James track. Seeing them close shows with this is amazing.
