Music written by Carl Davis, Lyrics by Norman Newell
Released in 1984 on a soundtrack single with “He Needs Me” on the B-side. This song has never been released on CD. This song is the original theme of the British 1984 movie Champions.

The composer is Carl Davis who conducted the London Symphony Orchestra for Shirley’s album I Am What I Am.

Don’t confuse this song with the other song Sometimes from 1977.

Review By Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

John Hurt plays the British jockey Bob Champion in this true story of how Champion overcame cancer and the rigors of chemotherapy for an impressive personal and professional comeback. Just as Champion is in the middle of a vacation in Kentucky, he finds out he has cancer, and, like others before him, submits to the full, painful treatments of multiple injections and radiation, suffering as much or more from the cure as from the illness (these treatments are graphic). Gaunt and nauseous, Champion also endures realistic meetings with his doctors that hold forth no guarantee of a cure. His eventual remission leads to yet another gruelling physical schedule to get him back into shape for the Grand National Steeplechase – a 30-fence, well-publicized race that offers difficult hurdles for both the horses and their jockeys. 1981 he wins the race on the horse Aldaniti.








Sometimes when things go wrong
We try to understand
Why the world stops turning
And takes away the things we planned
And sometimes we walk alone
No one appears to care
Sometimes we long for someone
To be the answer to every prayer

When through the mist of my tears I saw you
I knew I’d waited for you
To find all the dreams that lost their way

Who knows if we will win
God knows we won’t give in
There is no yesterday now
There’s just today now
To find my way with you

Some say that miracles never happen
But now I know they happen
When love comes along to show the way

Who knows if we will win
God knows we won’t give in
There is no yesterday now
There’s just today now
To find my way
With you
