"Sometimes" as written by Joke Jay and Steve Naghavi....
Daddy said that I'm a good boy,
'cause I always did his will,
But I can't remember,
Was it me? How did I feel?

I call them family,
But in the heart of hearts I know,
There's something wrong with me,
What can I do?

Mother said that I'm a good girl,
I was always dressed to kill,
But I can't remember,
Was it me? How did I feel?

Now this is long ago,
But today I'm really sure,
I don't want to crawl no more.
No, I don't want to!

I want to be all alone
To be all alone
(leave me all alone, I'm so lonely)
Sometimes I don't know what I prefer to be
(that's all that I can see)

So I burnt down the house of hate,
The key to close the door,
What a nice September,
I found out it's not too late.

It happened yesterday,
But today I'm really sure,
I don't want to crawl no more.
No I don't want to!

I want to be all alone
To be all alone
(leave me all alone, I'm so lonely)
Sometimes I don't know what I prefer to be
(that's all that I can see)

    General CommentI've always thought this song was about someone growing up in a repressive household and coming to terms with their gender or sexuality.
