"Sometimes Always" as written by and William Reid....
I gave you all I had
I gave you good and bad
I gave but you just threw it back

I won't get on my knees
Don't make me do that please
I've been away but now I'm back

Don't be too sure of that
What makes you sure of that
You went away you can't come back

I walked away from you
I hurt you through and through
Aw honey give me one more chance

Aw you're a lucky son
Lucky son of a gun
You went away, you went away
You went away but now you're back

I got down on my knees
And then I begged you please
I always knew you'd take me back

    General CommentThe song is about a one sided relationship. One partner was totally committed, e.g. "I gave you all I had"... the other wasn't.
    So the uncommitted partner went his separate way... & realized that he gave up something special. And now he's coming crawling/begging back.
    And just like in true life, the dumb-ass girl takes him back.

    General CommentIts not about a one sided relationship, but one where he leaves to find something better, realizes that he had something better and comes back for forgiveness.

    General CommentThis song is the perfect, gorgeous, (semi)positive flip-side to The Postal Service's "Nothing Better." Love it.

    General CommentI must confess thatalthough I am a non-sentimental guy who hates sloshie songs this one really gets me. I think it's a very modern love song, i.e. flawed and imperfect relationship ends well. Hope Sandoval's voice is really sexy as well.
