If I Never See Your Face Again
Maroon 5 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Now as the summer fades, I'll let you slip away
You say I'm not your type, but I can make you sway
It makes me burn to learn you're not the only one
I'll let you be if you put down your blazing gun

Now you've gone somewhere else far away
I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
But you feel my breath on your neck
Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Sometimes you move so well it's hard not to give in
I'm lost, I can't tell where you end and I begin
It makes me burn to learn you're with another man
I wonder if he's half the lover that I am

Now you've gone somewhere else far away
I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
But you feel my breath on your neck
Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Baby, baby, please believe me
Find it in your heart to reach me
Promise not to leave me behind
(Promise not to leave me behind)

Take me back, but take it easy
Make me think, but don't deceive me
Talk to me by taking your time
(Talk to me, talk to me)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

(Talk to me, talk to me)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before




And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Now you've gone somewhere else far away
Now you've left and traveled somewhere far from me


I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
I am uncertain if I will ever locate you again


But you feel my breath on your neck
Despite being distant, you can sense me close to you


Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)
It's unbelievable that I am right next to you

Promise not to leave me behind
Vow not to abandon me


Take me back, but take it easy
Reconnect with me, but do so gently


Make me think, but don't deceive me
Challenge me intellectually, but do not mislead me


Talk to me by taking your time
Communicate with me thoughtfully and intentionally

You continuously entice me to return for more

Our encounter tonight led to significant progress in our relationship

Now as the summer fades
I let you slip away
You say I'm not your type
But I can make you sway

It makes you burn to learn
You're not the only one
I'd let you be if you
Put down your blazing gun

Now you've gone somewhere else far away
I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
But you feel my breath on your neck
Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
If I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Sometimes you move so well
It's hard not to give in
I'm lost, I can't tell where you end and I begin

It makes you burn to learn
I'm with another man
I wonder if he's half the lover that I am

Now you've gone...somewhere else...far away
I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
But you feel my breath on your neck
Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
If I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Baby, baby
Please believe me
Find it in your heart to reach me
Promise not to leave me behind
(Promise not to leave me behind)

Take me down, but take it easy
Make me think but don't deceive me
Torture me by taking your time
(Torture me, torture me)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
If I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight
(Torture me, torture me)

Keep me coming back for more (Coming)
And I feel a little better (Back for more) than I did before
If I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight
