Song Lyric Sunday – She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5

Not only did I get Jim Adam’s theme wrong (it was supposed to be simile), if I had it to do all over again, I probably wouldn’t have picked “smile”.  All I can think is that it’s the universe’s way of getting to me.  Perhaps it’s trying to tell me something.  Perhaps I need to smile, but in the past few days, I keep finding reasons not to.

I suppose that’s what led me to pick this particular song.  Maybe someone, somewhere will see something good in me, because I’m for sure not seeing it right now.  “Broken smile” is just about how it feels to be me right now, which reeks of self pity and all those things I fight against, but sometimes it’s good to just say it, you know?  Perhaps if I acknowledge how terrible I’m feeling, it might turn things around.  Sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn’t.

So, I’m going to drown myself in music for a while, thanks to my amazing followers.  Thanks for making my Sunday’s so enjoyable, even when I can’t find much joy.  And even though this song talks about the girl with the broken smile, I think there is also hope.

I do hope you enjoy.

Beauty queen of only eighteen she
Had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her, she
Always belonged to someone else
I drove for miles and miles and wound up
At your door
I’ve had you so many times but somehow I want more
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday
Out on your corner in the pourin’ rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
Tap on my window, knock on my door, I
Want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn’t matter anymore
It’s not always rainbows and butterflies
It’s compromise that moves us along yeah
My heart is full, and my door’s always open
You can come anytime you want yeah
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday
Out on your corner in the pourin’ rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
I know where you hide alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and makes me catch her every time she
Falls
Yeah, tap on my window, knock on my door, I
Want to make you feel beautiful
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday
Out on your corner in the pourin’ rain oh
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
Please don’t try so hard to say good-bye
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday, out on your corner in the pourin’ rain
Please don’t try so hard to say good-bye

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

Song Lyric Sunday – Sunday Morning by Maroon 5

This song seems to fit with the day since it’s all about Sunday morning. Sunday mornings, to me, are about sleeping in and snuggling with the boyfriend under the covers. There is something so rejuvenating about it that I miss it when it doesn’t happen.

I’m not sure there’s a “story” around this song, especially since the video is just a bunch of people singing karoake. But I like to think this song is just about holding the ones you love close and enjoying Sunday morning for what it can offer – a chance to be in the moment with someone you love. I have to say, that even if you don’t have someone to snuggle with, just lazing around on a Sunday morning by yourself is pretty damn great just by itself.

I have always loved Maroon 5. We actually saw them open for Matchbox Twenty long before they actually hit it big and I spent months looking for their song on the radio before it finally happened. Adam Levine’s voice is masterful in its range and I think he’s pretty nice to look at too.

I hope you enjoy this installment of Song Lyric Sunday. Feel free to read the rules below and post your own so we can all share amazing music together.

Sunday Morning by Maroon 5
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Sunday morning rain is falling
Steal some covers share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in
But things just get so crazy living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm
Change the weather still together when it ends

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

But things just get so crazy living life gets hard to do
Sunday morning rain is falling and I’m calling out to you
Singing someday it’ll bring me back to you
Find a way to bring myself back home to you

May not know

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
Driving slow

Oh, yeah, yeah…

There is a flower in your hair.
I’m a flower in your hair.

Oh, yeah, yeah, oh
