"Infatuation" as written by and Adam Levine....
Baby, I don't want to spend my life on trial
For something that I did not do
And maybe if you stopped and looked around some time
I wouldn't pass right by you

Maybe it's because you are so insecure
Maybe your plain don't care
Maybe it's the chase that really gets me off
I fall so when it's just not there

Burn another bridge, break another heart
Try again, it will only fall apart

Infatuation
Not seeing the rest of you is getting the best of me
It's such a shame that you shot me down
It would have been nice to be around
I'm touching your skin
If it's only a fantasy, then why is it killing me?
I guess this must be infatuation (I want it)

Try to put my finger on what burns me up
It always seems to escape me
And when you have decided that you've had enough
Just tell me where I need to be

Now her face is something that I never had
To ever deal with before
She left me with the feeling that she'd had enough
And I'm the one wanting more

Burn another bridge, break another heart
Try again, it will only fall apart

Infatuation
Not seeing the rest of you is getting the best of me
It's such a shame that you shot me down
It would have been nice to be around
I'm touching your skin
If it's only a fantasy, then why is it killing me?
I guess this must be infatuation (I want it)

I'm so attracted to you
The feeling's mutual too
And I get scared the moment you leave
Get so hot I forget to breathe, yeah

Infatuation
Not seeing the rest of you is getting the best of me
It's such a shame that you shot me down
It would have been nice to be around
I'm touching your skin
If it's only a fantasy, then why is it killing me?
I guess this must be infatuation (I want it)

Oh (I want it)
Oh (I want it)
Yeah (I want it)

    General CommentBrilliant song, i think it should have been a solid track on their album rather than a mere bonus track!

    General Commentthis song is great. probably the second best after Back at Your Door from the new album.
    love the riff near the end - by "I'm so attracted to you" etc.

    General CommentI think the lyric you're missing in the first verse is "The floor's so wet it's just not there."

    But I like this song so far. It's pretty clear what the meaning is, so I won't bother commenting on it.

    General CommentActually, my lyric suggestion doesn't make sense at all. The hell does a wet floor have to do with infatuation? =p

    Came by to fix it, but it seems like someone beat me to it. But I hear "Don't force it when it's just not there", not "I force it when it's just not there"...but they're both close enough.

    General CommentI love how the lyrics.

    'Baby I don't wanna spend my life on trial for something that I did not do'

    Have two meanings.

    1. Literally doesnt want to be put on trial while hes innocent of any wrongdoing.

    2. He doesnt want to spend his life thinking of what could have been if he didnt do anything.

    You get?

    And these lines relate to how a guy thinks of what a girl thinks of him.

    'Maybe if you stopped and looked around sometimes I wouldn't pass right by you
    Maybe it's because you are so insecure
    Or maybe you plain don't care
    Maybe it's the chase that really gets me off'

    The girl is just playing around, or she doesnt care about him.

    I also love how theres a madd guitar solo in this song.

    Sounds heaps good because it just molds back into the chorus.
