"Another Again" as written by George Patterson, Kanye Omari West, Ernest Dion Wilson, Jessyca Wilson and John Legend....
So we did it again
Knowing we should quit it, but we simply won't admit it again
Oh, it feels good, it's so good, but I won't do it again
It's so dramatic again
After we go at it, we get mad then we go at it again
Oh, I love it, then I hate it she's my favorite again
I'm wasting time
I can't help it she's so fine
Oh, I like her style
And I love the way she talks, and I smile
As much as we may try
Can't quite see eye to eye
So in the meantime, I guess we say bye-bye

(And again and again and again)
Oh, and then we do it again
We do it again, and we do it again
Oh, and then we do it again
We want it again, and we want it again

So we fake it again
I think we're gonna blow it, and we know it
But she's naked again
We get wasted, then I taste it, then I waste it again
I can't invite her again
'Cause she'll go from a lover to a fighter
And I'll fight her again
So it's over, but I told her to come over again
I'm wasting time
But she's always on my mind
I can't let her go
Oh, she's not the best, but she's all that I know
As much as we may try
Can't quite see eye to eye
So in the meantime I guess we say bye-bye

(And again and again and again)
Oh, and then we do it again
We do it again, and we do it again
Oh, and then we do it again
We want it again, and we want it again

So I've got a new friend
I wish I could forget you
But I miss you, wanna kiss you again
She's like you, but she's not you gotta find you again

So we remember again
The middle of December, and I took you out to dinner again
Oh, I love her it's not over, just another again

(And again and again and again)
Oh, it's another again
I love her it's another again
(And again and again and again)
Oh, another again, oh, it's another again
(And again and again and again)
(And again and again and again)

    General CommentTo me, this is about a relationship where the two go through so much drama... but because of the love they share for each other, they just can't let go. They fight, then they hook back up, then they fight some more... over and over again this goes on, hence the "another again" line....

    i especially love the part where he says, "so i got a new friend/i wish i could forget you but i miss you.... gotta find you again" ... that part explains it all to me: it's like, after they've broken up again, he meets someone new... but then he realizes that even though the new woman is ok, he can't let go of the one he loves, and he has to go get her back.. "again"...

    the "she's like you, but she's not you" just proves that the whole time they were apart he was "looking" for her anyway.... after he realizes that even tho they fight, he still loves her... and there will never be another one just like her, he starts the cycle all over again....

    General CommentI second that Pryncess33. It's such a fantastic representation of this type of relationship. You know better in your mind but your heart pulls you back to this person over and over again.

    I've heard a cliche that states that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. This is insanity in relationship form and boy have I been there!

    I think this is his best work.

    General CommentTo me it seems like a transitional stage. You know that you reach that point in a relationship where everything is going wrong, but you keep seeing each other, even though someone will end up in tears, but you just keep trying AGAIN, and eventually it clicks, just look at the last line.

    He was blessed with an amazing voice

    General CommentSome people are sooo intoxicating, and even though you know you should stay away, you just can't. The passion, the danger, the sex and that special hold just takes over or makes you fall in love. Sometimes your heart rules your head. We've all been there, some people just have more will power and know when to end it , i know i didn't.

    General CommentI think the key line is "Oh, she's not the best, but she's all that I know". It shows the perspective -- this woman is what he knows, so regardless of what she actually is, she has set a standard for him. That's why he looks for her in other women, why he keeps going back. It doesn't matter what qualities she possesses or doesn't, it's the power struggle, it's the forbidden fruit. It's everything this woman represents that he can't stay away from. That kind of passion can make a person think they're in love, when really he just wants control, and that's the one thing he can never keep in his relationship with her. Those kind of relationships can go on forever and ever.
