Song Lyric Sunday – Nothing Lasts Forever by Maroon 5

I’m taking a drastic turn-about this week from last week’s upbeat song.  I’ve always been a moody person, though, so songs like this one fit me better in some ways.  I’ve been a huge Maroon 5 fan from the very beginning.  I saw them in concert before anyone knew who they were and they had maybe one song on the radio.  They actually opened for Matchbox Twenty (another favorite).  That’s why I was shocked to find that I’ve only posted one song from each band!

I’ve been looking through their libraries the past few weeks, trying to find another song to post.  I’m really happy I came across this one and that it fits the theme this week.  Maroon 5 is growing and changing and I’m not sure I like their new direction, but the jury is still out.  I just listened to a new song and read the lyrics and found myself wondering what happened to the writing and lyrics of their earlier songs.  I find this particular song poignant and sad, but also a good reminder that relationships take work every day, or else you run the risk of growing apart.

I’m happy my hubby and I are getting away tonight, just the two of us, for some much needed relaxation and fun.

I hope you enjoy!

It is so easy to see
Dysfunction between you and me
We must free up these tired souls
Before the sadness kills us both
I tried and tried to let you know
I love you, but I’m letting go
It may not last, but I don’t know
I just don’t know
If you don’t know
Then you can’t care
And you show up
But you’re not there
But I’m waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
A bed that’s warm with memories
Can heal us temporarily
The misbehaving only makes
The ditch between us so damn deep
Built a wall around my heart
I’ll never let it fall apart
But, strangely, I wish secretly
It would fall down while I’m asleep
If you don’t know
Then you can’t care
And you show up
But you’re not there
But I’m waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you, babe
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
Though we have not hit the ground
It doesn’t mean we’re not still falling, oh
I want so bad to pick you up
But you’re still too reluctant to accept my help
What a shame; I hope you find somewhere to place the blame
But until then the fact remains…
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way

  1. Reminds me of my last relationship. A certain wedge was driven between us over an issue we just couldn’t agree on. It led to the dissolution of that relationship. Four years later, I’ve still not been on a single date since.

    Alas, indeed, nothing lasts forever. Not even us. Time does fly for sure.
