"The Sun" as written by Adam Levine, Jesse Royal Carmichael, Ryan Michael Dusick, James Valentine and Mickey Madden....
After school
Walking home
Fresh dirt under my fingernails
And I can smell hot asphalt
Cars screech to a halt to let me pass
And I cannot remember
What life was like through photographs
Trying to recreate images life gives us from our past

And sometimes it's a sad song

But I cannot forget
Refuse to regret
So glad I met you and
Take my breath away
Make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have gone through
And Mama I've been cryin'
Cause things ain't how they used to be
She said, "The battle's almost won
And we're only several miles from the sun."

Moving on down my street
I see people I won't ever meet
Think of her, take a breath
Feel the beat in the rhythm of my steps

And sometimes it's a sad song

But I cannot forget
Refuse to regret
So glad I met you and
Take my breath away
Make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have gone through
And Mama I've been cryin'
Cause things ain't how they used to be
She said, "The battle's almost won
And we're only several miles from the sun."

The rhythm of her conversation
The perfection of her creation
The sex she slipped into my coffee
The way she felt when she first saw me
Hate to love and love to hate her
Like a broken record player
Back and forth and here and gone
And on and on and on and on

But I cannot forget
Refuse to regret
So glad I met you and
Take my breath away
Make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have gone through
And Mama I've been cryin'
Cause things ain't how they used to be
She said, "The battle's almost won
And we're only several miles from the sun."

    General Commentnever being able to forget someone you love.
    person left and u are feeling sad about it but not fully regretting u met the person.

    Think that's a nice way to leave a relationship with someone.not only angry and regretful but happy that you fell in love with the person and cherishing the moments you shared together

    I love those lines. I mean amazing. Freakin' amazing.

    I just found out about Maroon 5 a few nights ago...I went to a concert and when they came on they took my breath away. The beat was kinda funky and they had a keyboard player which really added to things. They rocked my socks.

    I love em already.





    WOO HOO!

    General CommentI heard about them a little while ago but same as you as soon as I heard their music I was in awe. How can such a mix of funk, rock and passion turn out so great?! I was listening to this song the other day and I momentarily got this feeling of complete love for life. I have a happy memory from listening to an awesome song. I think they should tour Australia so I can meet them. :)

    General CommentThis reminds me of high school crushes... He's walking one day when he remembers this one girl he used to like and how much it hurt him because she changed. His mom's advise was everything it will soon be over and he will be happier someday.
