"Sometimes " Lyrics

Erasure

It's not the way you lead me
By the hand into the bedroom
It's not the way you throw your clothes
Upon the bathroom floor

Been thinking about you
I just couldn't wait to see
Fling my arms around you
As we fall in ecstasy

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

It's not the way you caress me
Toy with my affection
It's not my sense of emptiness
You fill with your desire

Climb in bed beside me
We can lock the world outside
Touch me, satisfy me
Warm your body next to mine

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides
...

About

"Sometimes" is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in October 1986 as their fourth single overall.

After three commercial flops from their debut album Wonderland, "Sometimes" became Erasure's first bona fide hit, peaking at number one in South Africa, number two in their native United Kingdom and in Germany, and becoming a huge international hit. The song became Erasure's second Top 5 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, where it charted alongside "It Doesn't Have to Be" and peaked at number four. Peaking only at number 39 in the French Singles Chart, Sometimes still remains Erasure's last chart entry in France ever since.

Written by band members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, "Sometimes" typifies the Erasure sound — an uptempo, dance-oriented pop tune accentuated by Clarke's analogue synthesizers and Bell's lyrics about being in love. The trumpet solo is performed by Guy Barker.

"Sometimes" spent seventeen weeks in the UK singles chart — the duo's longest chart run for a single in that country — and was included on Erasure's second album The Circus, released six months later in March 1987.

The music video showcases Erasure on a building rooftop — Clarke playing an acoustic guitar and Bell singing — as they weave through white sheets hanging from a laundry line; near the end of the video rain starts to fall on the duo.
