"Mad" as written by Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen and Shaffer Smith....
She's starin' at me,
I'm sittin', wonderin' what she's thinkin'.
Nobody's talkin',
'Cause talkin' just turned into screamin'.
And now is I'm yellin' over her,
She's yellin' over me.
All that that means
Is neither of us is listening,
(And what's even worse)
That we don't even remember why were fighting.

So both of us are mad for

Nothin'
(Fighting for).
Nothin'
(Crying for).
Nothin'
(Whoa).
But we won't let it go for
Nothin'
(No not for)
Nothin'.
This should be nothin' to a love like what we got.
Oh, baby
I know sometimes
It's gonna rain
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(Cant sleep through the pain)

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Oh, no, no, no

And it gets me upset, girl
When you're constantly accusing.
(Askin' questions like you've already known).
We're fighting this war, baby
When both of us are losing.
(This ain't the way that love is supposed to go).
Whoa,
(What happened to workin' it out)
We've falled into this place
Where you ain't backin' down
And I ain't backin' down.

So what the hell do we do now
It's all for

Nothin'
(Fighting for).
Nothin'
(Crying for).
Nothin'
(Whoa).
But we won't let it go for
Nothin'
(No not for)
Nothin'.
This should be nothin' to a love like what we got.
Oh, baby
I know sometimes
It's gonna rain
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(Can't sleep through the pain)

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Oh, no, no, no

Oh baby this love ain't gonna be perfect,
(Perfect, perfect, oh oh).
And just how good it's gonna be.
We can fuss and we can fight
Long as everything alright between us
Before we go to sleep.

Baby, we're gonna be happy.

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(Can't sleep through the pain).

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Oh, no, no, no

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on the album. I particularly like how he addresses the lack of positive communication skills, but the desire to repair the relationship.

    General CommentThe music video for this song is totally sad. But I love this song. I like Ne-Yo because anyone can sing his music. Boy or girl. I would dedicate this to my boyfriend but it's mostly about fighting in which we never really do. It's pretty great. I love this kid to death. And thats how it is in the song but one little mistake or one little fight can take an extreme toll. I think Ne-Yo is trying to get across to listeners that you should appriciate what you have while you have it because life is too short to get mad. Great jod Ne-Yo. You did it again :)

    Song Meaningi love this song b/c it tells what it means in the lyrics. the relationship is oln the verge of being un-done by the lack of communication. even when its about to be over al he wants is to be with her and that he will try his best to fix it.

    Oh baby this love ain't gonna be perfect.
    (Perfect, perfect, ohh ohh)
    And just how good it's gonna be
    We can fuss and we can fight
    Long as everythings all right between us...
    Before we go to sleep.

    Baby we're gonna beee haaapppyyy.

    he loves her and doesnt want her to leave and will atay up all night just to fix things. thats the kind of relationship that everyone wants to have. it doesnt matter what you have planned for tommorow, you are not going to give up until everything is better and no-one is mad. and every guy AND girl needs to realize that


    i ♥ you baby!

    General CommentMe and my boyfriend fight a lot. But we always make up after because we know we mean to much to each other to lose each other over a dumb fight.

    General CommentI love this song because it speaks the truth about the world we live in, all couples fight, it makes your relationship stronger, you know that all minor arguments are fixable, this song highlights the fact that both parties within an argument want it to stop but it never just stops, it fades out untill you no longer know what you arguing about, followed by making up.

    Also,

    Sex after a big argument is the best and very passionate.

    General Commenthe is saying that when people are in a great relationship and then get into a fight, that they shouldmake up because in the end they still love each other and one fight shouldnt get in the way of that.
