"Sometimes" as written by and Martin Gore....
Only sometimes
I question everything
And I'm the first to admit
If you catch me in a mood like this
I can be tiring

Even embarrassing
But you must
Feel the same
When you look around
You can't tell me honestly
You're happy with what you see
Oh sometimes
Only sometimes
You must be
You must be
As embarrassing as me

    General CommentThis song has hints of "Somebody" in it. The common thread is the unfiltered honesty.

    In this song it is the fact that he can even be "embarassing" while in "Somebody" his thoughts might "even be perverted". In other words, Gore is speaking of inner thoughts that might be off-center or even offensive.

    Anyway - great song like all DM songs.

    General CommentI have done this to my wife - gotten bugged by the world and it's hypocrisy. I know when I get like that in company it can embarrass her (and me truth be told). But she often admits that she feels the same heh!

    General CommentOn this song, Martin Gore is not (necessarily) addressing a lover, but (more so) a potential soul-mate, encouraging them to share his (rather nihilistic) worldview (sometimes)
