Wake Up Call
Maroon 5 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I didn't hear what you were saying
I live on raw emotion, baby
I answer questions, never maybe
And I'm not kind if you betray me
So, who the hell are you to save me?
I never would have made it, babe

If you needed love
Well, then, ask for love
Could have given love
Now I'm taking love
And it's not my fault
'Cause you both deserve
What's coming now
So don't say a word

Wake up call
Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed
Don't you care about me anymore?
Don't you care about me?
I don't think so
Six foot tall
Came without a warning, so I had to shoot him dead
He won't come around here anymore
Come around here?
I don't think so

Would have bled to make you happy
You didn't need to treat me that way
And now you beat me at my own game
And now I'm finally sleeping soundly
And your lover's screaming loudly
I hear a sound and hit the ground

If you needed love
Well, then, ask for love
Could have given love
Now I'm taking love
And it's not my fault
'Cause you both deserve
What's coming now
So don't say a word

Wake up call
Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed
Don't you care about me anymore?
Don't you care about me?
I don't think so
Six foot tall
Came without a warning, so I had to shoot him dead
He won't come around here anymore
Come around here?
I don't feel so bad
I don't feel so bad
I don't feel so bad

I'm so sorry, darling
Did I do the wrong thing?
Oh, what was I thinking?
Is his heart still beating?

Whoa, oh, oh

Wake up call
Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed
Don't you care about me anymore?
Don't you care about me?
I don't think so
Six foot tall
Came without a warning, so I had to shoot him dead
He won't come around here anymore
Come around here?
I don't feel so bad

Wake up call
Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed
Don't you care about me anymore?
Don't you care about me?
I don't think so
Six foot tall
Came without a warning, so I had to shoot him dead
He won't come around here anymore, no
He won't come around here?
I don't feel so bad

(Wake up call)
(Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed)
(Don't you care about me anymore?)
(Don't you care about me?)
(I don't feel so bad)
(Wake up call)




(Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed)
(Don't you care about me anymore)

Overall Meaning

In Maroon 5's song Wake Up Call, the singer is expressing his anger and frustration towards his cheating partner. He is hurt and confused, as he didn't see the signs of her disloyalty. The lyrics express his raw emotions and the betrayal he feels when he is cheated on. He is seeking revenge but at the same time, he acknowledges that he is equally guilty of not giving enough love. The singer warns the cheating partner and the lover that they both deserve what's coming to them, and he won't let them get away with it without consequences. The repetitive chorus of "Wake up call" is a call to reality for the cheating partner and an eye-opener for the singer.


The lyrics are a representation of the feelings of heartbreak and anger that one feels when betrayed by someone they love. The line "I live on raw emotion, baby" shows that the singer is troubled with raw emotions and is unable to control them. The line "I'm not kind if you betray me" conveys that the singer is someone who values loyalty and trust above everything else, and if that trust is broken, he won't be kind. The song exemplifies how one can be vulnerable in love and find comfort and security, but also how it can all be pulled away so easily if trust is broken.


Line by Line Meaning

I didn't hear what you were saying
I am not paying attention to you


I live on raw emotion, baby
I make decisions based on my feelings


I answer questions, never maybe
I am decisive and straightforward


And I'm not kind if you betray me
I am not forgiving if you break my trust


So, who the hell are you to save me?
I don't need your help or advice


I never would have made it, babe
I don't need anyone's help to succeed


If you needed love
If you were looking for love


Well, then, ask for love
Just ask for it directly


Could have given love
I could have given you love


Now I'm taking love
But now I'm taking love for myself


And it's not my fault
I'm not to blame


'Cause you both deserve
You both deserve what's coming to you


What's coming now
The consequences of your actions


So don't say a word
Don't even bother trying to defend yourself


Wake up call
This is a wake-up call


Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed
I caught you cheating on me


Don't you care about me anymore?
Are you even concerned about my well-being?


Don't you care about me?
Do you even care about me at all?


I don't think so
I don't believe that you do


Six foot tall
A tall person


Came without a warning, so I had to shoot him dead
I had to take drastic measures to protect myself


He won't come around here anymore
He's no longer a threat to me


Come around here?
Do you really think he would?


Would have bled to make you happy
I would have done anything to make you happy


You didn't need to treat me that way
You didn't have to behave that way towards me


And now you beat me at my own game
You've outsmarted me


And now I'm finally sleeping soundly
I can finally rest easy


And your lover's screaming loudly
Your lover is upset


I hear a sound and hit the ground
I'm startled by a noise and fall to the ground


I'm so sorry, darling
I apologize, my love


Did I do the wrong thing?
Did I make a mistake?


Oh, what was I thinking?
Why did I even do that?


Is his heart still beating?
Is he still alive?
