Maroon 5

Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles, California. While they were in high school, lead vocalist and guitarist Adam Levine, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, bass guitarist Mickey Madden, and drummer Ryan Dusick formed a garage band called Kara's Flowers and released one album in 1997. After a brief period they re-formed with guitarist James Valentine, and pursued a new, more pop-oriented direction as Maroon 5. In 2002 they released their debut album Songs About Jane, which contained four hit singles: "Harder to Breathe", "This Love", "She Will Be Loved" and "Sunday Morning"; it also enjoyed major chart success, going gold, platinum, and triple platinum in many countries around the world. more »

Slow is the memory
I can picture her standing right in front of me
I said that I'm behaving badly
Kinda driving her crazy
But I know she wants me

I remember everything
Her sweat, it tastes like sugar cane
And sit on top of me, yelling out my fucking name
Until I'm empty
And I know she wants me

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
Drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry
Whoa, whoa, yeah yeah yeah yeah

And I'll see you when I get back
Maybe we can get ourselves back on the right track
You touch me there because you know how much I like that
I think that we both need to relax
You know you want me

All the time and everywhere
A happy surface but the underbelly isn't there
And the worst thing is that I don't even really care
And the emptiness is too much to bear

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
Drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry

'Cause sometimes I don't know what to do
I'm standing, standing right in front of you
And pray our pain subsides
Can't bare the stare of your teary eyes
I know you feel like it's hard to stay
In fact you may just wanna run away
Now all that I can really say is baby, oh
Deep down you know that

I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
Drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry

I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
Sick of all these wasted years
Drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry

Oh no no no
Oh no no no
(We tried, yeah)
