Wasted Years
Maroon 5 Lyrics


Slow is the memory
And I can picture her standing right in front of me
I said that I'm behaving badly
Kinda driving her crazy
But I know she wants me

I remember everything
Her sweat, it tastes like sugar cane
And sit on top of me, yelling out my fucking name
Until I'm empty
But I know she wants me

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
Drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry
Whoa, whoa, yeah yeah yeah yeah

And I'll see you when I get back
Maybe we can get ourselves back on the right track
You touch me there because you know how much I like that
I think that we both need to relax
You know you want me

All the time and everywhere
A happy surface but the underbelly isn't there
And the worst thing is that I don't even really care
And the emptiness is too much to bear

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
Drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry

'Cause sometimes I don't know what to do
I'm standing, standing right in front of you
And pray our pain subsides
Can't bare the stare of your teary eyes
I know you feel like it's hard to stay
In fact you may just wanna run away
Now all that I can really say is baby, oh
Deep down you know that

I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
Sick of all these wasted years
I drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry

I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
Sick of all these wasted years
I drown in someone else's tears
You let me down, now I'm hanging you out to dry

Oh no no no
Oh no no no
(We tried, yeah, hey)

The closest Adam's sounded to his Songs About Jane days. Pretty groovy tune.

Roberto Iglesias-Sanchez

This and Ladykiller are the closest, and they're awesome

Kathryn G

I prefer M5 songs about Jane era better than anything else they really sold out always this poppy generic shit and adams high pitch is really urking like in SAJ he used his voice the good parts and sounded really good it was all around better most M5 songs I dont like anymore there all the same and his high pitch I cant handle it's like nails on a chalk board

I personally dislike it. I feel it sounds similar but yet so out of place. I prefer the live version of this song.
