Makes Me Wonder
Maroon 5 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I wake up, with blood-shot eyes
Struggled to memorize
The way it felt between your thighs
Pleasure that made you cry
Feels so good to be bad
Not worth the aftermath, after that
After that
Try to get you back

I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a fuck about you

Give me something to believe in
'Cause I don't believe in you
Anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to try
Yeah, so this is goodbye

God damn, my spinning head
Decisions that made my bed
Now I must lay in it
And deal with things I left unsaid
I want to dive into you
Forget what you're going through
I get behind, make your move
Forget about the truth

I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a fuck about you

Give me something to believe in
'Cause I don't believe in you
Anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference
It even makes a difference to try (yeah)
And you told me how you're feeling
But I don't believe it's true
Anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry
(Oh no)
So this is goodbye

I've been here before
One day I'll wake up
And it won't hurt anymore
You caught me in a lie
I have no alibi
The words you say don't have a meaning
'Cause

I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a fuck about you and I
And so this is goodbye

Give me something to believe in
'Cause I don't believe in you
Anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference
It even makes a difference to try
And you told me how you're feeling
But I don't believe it's true
Anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry
(Oh no)
So this is goodbye
So this is goodbye, yeah




So this is goodbye, yeah
So this is goodbye, yeah

Overall Meaning

Maroon 5's song "Makes Me Wonder" is a powerful reflection on relationships and the aftermath of breakups. The song begins with the singer waking up with blood-shot eyes and struggling to remember the pleasure of being with their partner. The chorus ponders the question of whether they ever cared for their partner or perhaps never gave them the attention they deserved. The second verse highlights the decision-making and unsaid words that led to the breakup and how the singer wants to forget about the truth and get behind their partner to make a move. The chorus then repeats, with the added line about not believing their partner's feelings are genuine anymore. The song ends with a realization that the relationship has come to an end and a bittersweet goodbye.


The song is all about the complexities of relationships and how they can leave us with more questions than answers. The singer is unsure if they ever cared for their partner, which adds a layer of nuance to the lyrics. It highlights the fact that in relationships, things are not always black and white. There are moments of pleasure and moments of pain; the aftermath can leave us feeling lost and confused.


Line by Line Meaning

I wake up, with blood-shot eyes
I wake up feeling exhausted and in pain


Struggled to memorize
I can't get the way you felt out of my head


The way it felt between your thighs
I can't stop thinking about the pleasure we had together


Pleasure that made you cry
I took pleasure in making you feel so good that you cried


Feels so good to be bad
It may be wrong, but it still feels good


Not worth the aftermath, after that
The consequences of my actions aren't worth the pleasure I got


After that
After the pleasure and the consequences


Try to get you back
I want to win you back even though I don't deserve it


I still don't have the reason
I still don't understand why things went wrong


And you don't have the time
You're not willing to give me the time to explain or make things right


And it really makes me wonder
This situation makes me deeply question myself and my feelings towards you


If I ever gave a fuck about you
I'm not even sure if I ever truly cared about you


Give me something to believe in
I need something or someone to hold onto in order to move on


'Cause I don't believe in you
I don't believe in you or your feelings for me anymore


Anymore, anymore
It's over between us and there's no turning back


I wonder if it even makes a difference to try
I question whether it's even worth trying to fix things between us


Yeah, so this is goodbye
This is the end of our relationship


God damn, my spinning head
My mind is in a constant state of chaos and confusion


Decisions that made my bed
I made choices that led me down this path of regret and heartache


Now I must lay in it
I have to deal with the consequences of my actions and mistakes


And deal with things I left unsaid
I have to face the fact that I didn't communicate properly and left important things unsaid


I want to dive into you
I want to lose myself in you and forget about everything else


Forget what you're going through
I want to put your feelings and problems aside for just a moment


I get behind, make your move
I'll follow your lead and let you take control


Forget about the truth
I don't want to face reality, I just want to escape


And you told me how you're feeling
You shared your feelings with me


But I don't believe it's true
But I don't trust that your feelings are genuine


So this is goodbye
Our relationship has come to an end

It even makes a difference to try
And you told me how you're feeling
But I don't believe it's true anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry
Oh, no, so, this is goodbye
Ooh, I've been here before
One day I'll wake up and it won't hurt anymore
You caught me in a lie, I have no alibi
The words you say don't have a meaning
'Cause I still don't have a reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a fuck about you and I
And so, this is goodbye
Give me something to believe in
'Cause I don't believe in you anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference
It even makes a difference to try, yeah
And you told me how you're feeling
But I don't believe it's true anymore, anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry
Oh, no, so, this is goodbye

When they were a band.

@arthurgabriel4325

Before they turned into the Adams family

@dougxvale

I wish they could return to Kara's Flowers that would be dope. Ditch all of the clean pop style to a more alternative grunge persona

@ricoamordavila7496

Before Adam turned lame...

@shifalmohamed2512

@@dougxvale in last live their talks were saying like upcoming album will be good.... Like Adam said his dream writing team has quited and returned and this felt like they will be writing their new songs... Then James said that upcoming album is his favourite, he won't say that unless it has many guitar riffs.... James like songs with more guitar riffs like the sun
