Sometimes

Lyrics

play You tell me you're in   with me
play Like you can't take your   eyes   from me
play It's not that I don't want to  
play But every time you come too close I move  

play I wanna   in everything that you say
play 'Cause it sounds so  
play But if you really want me move  
play There's things   me you just have to  

play Sometimes I  
play Sometimes I  
play Sometimes I'm   of you
play But all I really want is to   you tight
play Treat you   , be with you day and night
play Baby, all I need is  

play I don't wanna be so  
play Every time that I'm alone I   why
play Hope that you will   for me
play You'll see that you're the only one for me

play I wanna believe in everything that you say
play 'Cause it sounds so good
play But if you really want me move slow
play There's things about me you just have to know

play Sometimes I run (sometimes)
play Sometimes I hide
play Sometimes I'm scared of you
play But all I really want is to hold you tight
play Treat you right, be with you day and night
play All I really want is to hold you tight
play Treat you right, be with you day and night
play Baby all I need is time

play Just   around and you'll see
play There's nowhere I'd   be
play If you love me,   in me
play The way that I trust in you

play Sometimes I run (sometimes)
play Sometimes I hide,
play Sometimes I'm scared of you (oh)
play But all I really want is to hold you tight
play Treat you right, be with you day and night

play Sometimes I run (sometimes)
play Sometimes I hide
play Sometimes I'm scared of you
play But all I really want is to hold you tight
play Treat you right, be with you day and night
play All I really want is to hold you tight
play Be with you day and night

play Sometimes I run (sometimes)
play Sometimes I hide
play Sometimes I'm scared of you
play But all I really want is to hold you tight

meaningMeaning

The meaning of that song is that she loved someone and she was still scared to take it farther. Sometimes she just wants to run away, and hide but all she really wants to do is stay with him and hold him in her arms. She loved him but wanted to take it slow. There are some things about her, that she wants him to know before they take it fast. She wanted him to wait for her. She wants to be able to trust him and he can trust her
