Feelings
Maroon 5 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You and me and all that wine
Loosen my tie, lie down, let's fly
Every guy that passes by
(Look at her, look at her, oh)
And you say that it's not right
But where does he think you are tonight?
Does he know your nasty side?
(Look at her, look at her, oh)

If you want me take me home and let me use you
I know he doesn't satisfy you like I do
And does he know that there's nobody quite like you
So let me tell you all the things he never told you
(Yeah)

I got these feelings for you
And I can't help myself no more
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more
I, I, I
I, I, I
I, I, I

You and me let's go all night
Going so high, we fuck the sky
Come with me now, fuck that guy
(Look at her, look at her, oh)
Now you flash that sexy smile
And tell me I've got to wait a while
And it makes me lose my mind
(Look at her, look at her, oh)

If you want me take me home and let me use you
I know he doesn't satisfy you like I do
And does he know that there's nobody quite like you
So let me tell you all the things he never told you
(Yeah)

I got these feelings for you
And I can't help myself no more
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more
I, I, I
I, I, I
I, I, I
(Can't help myself no more)
I, I, I
I, I, I
I, I, I

No, I can't wait much longer
It needs to happen now
'Cause I can't spend the rest of my life chasing you around
I want to get much closer
You need to tell me how
Baby, how, how
Babe, 'cause I

I got these feelings for you
And I can't help myself no more
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more

I got these feelings for you
(Got these feelings for ya, got these feelings for ya)
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more
I, I, I
I, I, I




I, I, I
It's fine
