Well where i come from,
we learn to take it nice and slow,
but baby since we met
oh its been go go go

so you can rough me up
yeah baby you can hurt me too
because all I've got (all I've got)
you see all I've got is you

you can rough me up
you can break me down
baby don't stop now
you can use me up till it all runs out baby don't stop now
baby don't stop now

I say where I come from
We learn to make the best of things
Honey since we met
And I know u've had the best of me
so u can lock me up, yeah baby throw away that key

Because all I know is that this is where I wanna be
you can rough me up
you can break me down
baby don't stop now
you can use me up till it all runs out baby dont stop now
don't stop now i'm all yours

you can rough me up
you can break me down
baby don't stop now
You can use me up till it all runs out
Baby don't

you can rough me up
you can break me down
baby don't stop now
you can use me up till it all runs out baby don't stop now
I know you want, I know you want somehow, baby don't stop now

Hey, hey, hey,hey,hey,hey,hey
Oh baby don't stop now
Hey hey hey,hey,hey,hey,hey
Oh baby don't stop now

    General CommentHaha, that's true; there aren't that many different lines in this song.
    But I think that's what makes it so sweet.
    I think this song's about a girl that's a little too much for him to handle, but he doesn't mind one bit.
    This is one of my favorites!

    General CommentI feel that this song is a reflection about experiencing hard times with someone, but in the end you know that it can never ever get to you because just having and loving him/her is way more satisfying to you and you would not trade it in for a second. It is an easy expression about how genuine someone can feel without having such high expectations like society today sometimes evokes on relationships.

    That's basically what The Maine is in one word, genuine.

    My InterpretationWow. Either my mind is really dark or I'm just over thinking this song.

    I took the lyrics quite literally, thinking it was about an abusive relationship. As an example, there would be a couple and the boyfriend is abusive and John would be telling the story from the girl's POV.

    My InterpretationWow, I see this entirely different from the other people commenting on this song, except for the second one, at least partially... I don't think it's about an abusive relationship, or a relationship that isn't working, at all.

    I interpret this as one of those relationships that catch you a bit off guard. Maybe you've been used to being with someone laid back, someone that maybe takes things a bit seriously, moving slow and being thorough. And at some point that ends, and the next person you meet is the exact opposite. It's fast, it's intense, it's new and it's "go go go", no time to think, just feel and do.

    The part about roughing up and hurting I take more figurative than literal, like getting your hair ruffled or being exhausted, maybe getting in a bit too deep when you realise that the other person isn't as serious as you are, because you are used to being serious. This part can also be interpreted sexually.

    The bottom line seems to me to be "This is going so fast, such a whirlwind, I don't know where my next step will take me but I want to see, I don't want this to stop, baby don't stop."
