"contagious" as written by and Mark Brown....
I was sick of restrictions, sick of the boundaries, about to close the door
Such a lack of conviction, no real connection, what should I settle for?
But you caught my attention, you built on the tension, and you left me wanting more
Now I don't know what to do with myself, do with myself
I don't want nobody else

I let you in, I let you in and you infected me
Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you
I breathed you in, I breathed you in and now I'm in too deep
Don't think I'm pulling through, Don't think I'm pulling through
Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you

You're so contagious
Running through my veins you're so contagious
Hanging onto every word you're so contagious
And I can't get away
You're so contagious and now I know for sure there is no cure

I saw your intentions, i gave you permission, go ahead and start the war
I was out of addictions, by my own admission, oh I've been keeping score
But you made an exception you taught me a lesson
Who cares where I've been before?
You would never leave me all by myself, all by myself
You don't want nobody else

I let you in, I let you in and you infected me
Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you
I breathed you in, I breathed you in and now I'm in too deep
Don't think I'm pulling through, Don't think I'm pulling through
Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you

You're so contagious
Running through my veins you're so contagious
Hanging onto every word you're so contagious
And I can't get away
You're so contagious and now I know for sure there is no cure

And I am burning in your fire (There is no cure)
And I have only one desire (There is no cure)
(Now I don't know what to do with myself, do with myself)
I can not deny her (There is no cure)

Now I don't know what to with myself, do with myself
I don't want nobody else

I let you in, I let you in and you infected me
Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you
I breathed you in, I breathed you in and now I'm in too deep
Don't think I'm pulling through, Don't think I'm pulling through
Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you, Can't get enough of you

You're so contagious
Running through my veins you're so contagious
Hanging onto every word you're so contagious
And I can't get away
You're so contagious and now I know for sure there is no cure


You keep running, you keep running, you keep running through my veins
You keep running, you keep running, you keep running through my veins
You keep running, you keep running, you keep running through my veins
You keep running, you keep running, you keep running through my veins

    General CommentTell me why this song is about bad relationships because it seems quite the opposite to me...

    "I was sick of restrictions, sick of the boundaries, about to close the door, Such a lack of conviction, no real connection" - talking about old relationships, all the problems he had with them, and how he'd given up on finding someone worth while

    "Now I don't know what to do with myself do with myself
    I don't want nobody else
    I let you in I let you in and you infected me Can't get enough of you
    I breathed you in and now I'm in too deep
    Don't think I'm pulling through" - He's found someone, let his guard down and now he's fallen for her and he knows he's too deeply in love to go back to meaningless relationships and he's not gonna pull through, or get over this girl etc etc...

    I feel like the way he sings it, it can't be a song about how he's addicted to a chick thats not good for him

    General CommentCompletely agree with ontogenesis. I've been addicted to this song since I first heard it a couple weeks ago. Every time I listened to it, I interpreted it as a love song. About how he's finally found the right girl after going through other bad relationships. I don't get how people think it's about being with the wrong girl.

    "I was sick of restrictions, sick of the boundaries.
    About to close the door. But you caught my attention, built on the tension.
    You left me wanting more. Now I don't know what to do with myself, do with myself.
    I don't want nobody else"

    Sounds to me like he found the perfect girl for him, not the worst.


    Either way, it's a great song & one of my favorites by Trapt.

    General Commentyea i think its about him in a relationship with a girl and she is all wrong for him she is using him and he cant break away from her even tho he knows she is just hurting him, he has this strong attraction to her and he cant even explain why, least thats what i think

    General CommentAgreed with every meaning so far. I too was addicted to someone but I managed to break that and am starting to get over the fact that I was addicted to them.

    General Commentgreat song...by the way...is it just me or do I hear "hanging on to" instead of "holding onto" in the line:

    "you’re so contagious Holding onto every word You’re so contagious"...?
