Never Gonna Leave this Bed Lyrics

You push me
I don't have the strength to
Resist or control you
Take me down, take me down

You hurt me
But do I deserve this?
You make me so nervous
Calm me down, calm me down

Wake you up
In the middle of the night to say
I will...

    This song takes me back to a period of time when I was in 3rd grade and I was trying to except the fact that there was this girl I had met in Yosemite and she lived in San Francisco and I lived in LA and I was trying to except the fact that I would never see her again and I would listen to this song and I would think man If I could see her again or go back to those magical days in Yosemite then I would never leave her side again. Her name is Isabella and she had an older brother named tommy and he uncle Andy was with them and he lives in Chicago. My name is Elijah and I hope if she reads this or if any of you know her please give her my phone number it is 818 419 0637. It’s been 7 years now and I really want to see her again.

    the guy broke up with her before, but realizes he loves her ("I will never walk away again")he will never leave her again and make the same mistake.

    "You push me. I don't have the strength to resist or control you." They are having an argument and she pushes him. He cannot push her back or do anything to hurt her no matter what she does to him because he cares about her too much. This is a metaphor for the relationship in general. She probably does and says things that hurt him emotionally for various reasons: she is not sure she wants to be in the relationship because she is not sure she loves him, loses her temper when they argue and says hurtful things and even pushes him, but he still prefers this over not being with her. "You hurt me, but do I deserve this" also supports this interpretation.

    "I'll never walk away again" He has been the one to break it off before. However, it seems from the lyrics that they have both made considerable mistakes in the relationship.

    "You say go it isn't worth it. I say no, it isn't perfect" He is telling her he understands it is hard, it isn't perfect, but to him, it is still worth it to to try and work it out.

    In general, Maroon 5 has an attraction for fragile, yet beautiful women (Another example is their well-known She Will Be Loved). The woman in this song, like the women (or the same one) in their other songs, is exceptionally beautiful physically ("perfection of your face") and has a certain charm that comes from her fragility and dependence. These women have emotional problems and are not accustomed to "normal" and "happy" relationships. (Ex. from She Will Be Loved "She always belonged to someone else.") It is not clear whether this woman loves him or just needs him, because she needs to depend on someone and this is the reason she is so quick to give-up on the relationship. Part of the attraction for the singer is that he wants to "save her" from her problems.

    I think that this song is TOTALLY considered a love song!! My kind of boyfriend told me that he wanted this to be "our song" and i hadn't heard it before so i said SURE!

    I think that it is about a guy who left his girl once but he came back. She believes that he is going to leave her again but he insists that he is going to stay and he will do anything for her. He is willing to give himself up for her.

    I'm pretty sure its "You say 'Go, it isn't worth it.' And I say "No, it isn't perfect."

    I think maybe he made a mistake and she's saying the relationship isn't working and he says he wants to stay and fix it.

    I feel that it is about a couple who has had problems before and he is telling her he wants to fix things. It seems like it goes throug their journey of earning trust back and her trying to push him away.

    Bed is a comfort zone. The "Bed" in this song lyric means the place where the partners make love. Making love spices up the relationship.

    It's about a guy who likes a girl but the girl pushes him away in every way possible. The guy has given everything for the girl but the girl just pushes away. Never gonna leave this bed is a metaphor that symbolism he will not stop until he acquires what he wants.

    i think that this is about someone who care about someone but for some reason she pushes him away even though she cares about him she doesn't realize how much he cares for her. He is never going to let her go no matter what. He wants her in his life and cant live without her even though she may not believe it as much as him. He loves her and he wants her to care about him the same.
