Always (3:51)

Cover of Back Into Your System

From Back Into Your System and 15 other releases

“Always” is the first single off the album Back Into Your System by alternative rock band Saliva. It made it to #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks for one week and has been Saliva’s most successful hit. It was used for World Wrestling Entertainment’s 2002 Survivor Series and was also performed at the event.[1]

The song’s chorus utilizes a power chord structure recognizable in various other singles of the alternative metal genre, including The Exies’ “Ugly” released only a few years later.

The music video for “Always” focuses on a young man who appears to be haunted by a woman of his past, sporadically appearing throughout town. The video ends with the man, enraged with emotion, destroying a telephone booth before collapsing to the ground. MTV requested an edit of the lyrics in the final verse. The line “the pistol shaking in my hand, and all I can hear is the sound” was edited to replace the word “pistol” with “anger” video version. Also, this song was played on Music Choice Television. The genre it was played was “Rock”.

I hear a voice say "Don't be so blind"
It's telling me all these things
That you would probably hide
Am I your one and only desire?

    I always thought these guys were a generic sucky nu/rap metal band, this song's actually quite good, more like grunge :)
