Again
John Legend Lyrics


First time we ever got a chance to be alone we knew
It was wrong to do
I guess that's why I was drawn to you
Second time leads to the third, the fifth, the seventh time

I feel so alive, it won't last but it's alright
Fleeting joy and faded ecstasy
Here goes again, sneaking fruit from the forbidden tree
Sweet taste of sin
And I'm doing it again
Yes, I'm doing it again
Oh, I'm doing it again
I said it would end
But here it goes again

This time you told me you saw me at the same motel
You said you knew me well, and I had that familiar smell
Asked me, How am I ever going to learn to put my trust in you,
'Cause I know what you're prone to do?"
Accusations fly like bullets do
Here it goes again
Oh, you know me because you're doing it too
Cycle never ends, it never ends

Oh, you're doing it again
Yes, you're doing it again
Are you doing it again?
You said it would end, but here it goes again and again and again

Damn, I love you, but this is crazy
I have to fight you, almost daily
We break up so fast and we, we make up so passionately
Why can't we just trust each other?
You can't hate me and be my lover
Passion ends, the pain begins
I come back, and we're doing it again

Yes, we're doing it again
Oh, we're doing it again
We said it would end
But here it goes again

Each time you call me home in a sweet refrain
Saying things'll change, you'll take away the pain
Then we flash back to the first time you put your spell on me
You envelop me, you feel good as hell to me
One moment leads to another few
Here it goes again
Leaving you is oh so hard to do
I just can't pretend, can't pretend

I keep doing it again
Oh, I'm doing it again
Yes, I'm doing it again
I said it would end
Oh, oh, oh

Oh, I'm doing it again
I said it would end
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, I'm doing it again
I said it would end
But here it goes again

This is one of those real songs. A poetic example of when the heart and mind are at war. You know what you know, but you feel what you feel.
