"Sometimes" as written by and J�rgen Kjell Elofsson....
You tell me you're in love with me
Like you can't take your pretty eyes away from me
It's not that I don't wanna stay
But every time you come too close I move away

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

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

Baby all I need is time

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

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

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

All I really want is to hold you tight
Treat you right, be with you day and night
Baby all I need is time

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

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

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

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

    General CommentThis song just means so much to me. The meaning are pretty simple, and I could relate to it, in a way, though I'm a guy.

    I'm currently in love with this girl, I think she likes me too, but somehow, sometimes we're so close, sometimes she just avoids me, shunts me off. Its as if she's singing every line of that song. Yeah, its like this song is telling me something about what she might be going through right now, that she's just scare...

    I just wish I could make her understand that if she really loves me too, I'm willing to take it slow, and work this out with her even if it takes years, instead of putting us apart.

    Oh yeah, this song always reminds me about us. In a sad way though

    General CommentI think this song's just about being so nervous around the person you really like, that sometimes you'll run, hide, and be scared that you'll goof and make a fool of yourself in front of that person.

    General CommentI like how people just post about how much they hate britney spears. Get over it.

    But anyways. The lyrics of this song are actually kinda meaningful for me strangely enough. I think its talking about intimacy issues. I interpret it as the guy she is with wants to take the relationship to the next level but she is not ready for that. "Baby all I need is time." Its kind of a big issue in my current relationship right now and I'm sure a lot of girls can relate to that. Overall its a really cheesy song but the message is relatable.

    General CommentI love this song! The melody is beautiful and the lyrics are deep and heartfelt. To me, this song is about a girl being shy and reserved, and on top of that afraid to get too close to a guy she truly cares about because she is afraid she will get hurt. This girl is afraid to trust.

    General CommentI used to like this song from the deep lyrics, but now I hate it. It's a great song, but I just can't help feeling heart-broken when I hear this song because it's the song my ex-gf thought about when she started seeing another guy....

    General Commentyou know....this song sounds almost like it's been written by someone that actually means it...rather than some corporate whore who gets paid to write words to extort the stupid.....if you're dumb enough to buy a britney album, you deserve to own one
