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
