Sometimes - Erasure

"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 bonafide 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.

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 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.

"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.

Erasure - Sometimes by EMI_Music

Scroll and Sing:
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

[Chorus to fade...]
