Sometimes

Album: The Way I See It (2008)
  • Let me tell you about my day
    It's such a very long day
    It started around seven
    And I can hear your breath

    That's why I love Sunday mornings
    Even when it's cold
    There was always something burning
    That was good for my soul

    As I walk through the yard
    I can feel you presence
    You're giving me the time of my life
    And (...) me the life lessons

    Now I know what they mean
    When they say keep your heads in the sky
    And don't be too quick to fit in
    And don't (...) I have to try

    [Chorus]
    This world is strange, so strange it is
    You know it really hurts inside yeah (sometimes)
    No matter how good you are to people you know
    They'll make you cry sometimes (sometimes)

    I'm so proud for you to see
    The young man I came to be
    With life long troubles
    You kept a smile on my face

    And as I'm looking all around me
    A say how can I ever repay you
    Mama was worth more than gold
    And she always tried to tell me

    [Chorus]

    There's been a few days
    When people truly let me down
    I said (...) things
    Just to bring me down

    And they would (......)
    Just for their self motives and greed
    But I guess that ain't nothing new
    It's just something I gotta go through

    [Chorus]

    Now how much more can I take before I shoot a kiss
    Don't let them (...) for joke cause what you feel is very real yeah yeah

    You know it makes me cry sometimes baby (sometimes)
    Yes it does
    Out of all the days and all the stories you've told me bout
    You know I still hurt inside yeah (sometimes)

    I go through life with my hands in the air
    Said oh Lord help me there
    Oh it hurts sometimes baby (sometimes)
    Nobody can tell me better than you
    About these things I will go through
    Oh it hurts sometimes baby (sometimes)

    Ohh oh, ohh oh, ooh oh, sometimes Writer/s: RAPHAEL SAADIQ, ROBERT C. JR. OZUNA
