"Never Gonna Leave This Bed" as written by Adam Levine, Jesse Royal Carmichael, Mickey Madden and James Valentine....
You push me, I don't have the strength to
Resist or control you
So take me down
Take me down

You hurt me, but do I deserve this
You make me so nervous
Calm me down
Calm me down

Wake you up in the middle of the night to say,
I will never walk away again
I never gonna leave this bed

So come here and never leave this place
Perfection of your face
Slows me down
Slows me down
So fall down I need you to trust me
Go easy, don't rush me

Help me out why don't you help me out

Wake you up in the middle of the night to say,
I will never walk away again
I never gonna leave this bed
You say go
It isn't worth it and I say no
It isn't perfect so I stay and still
I'm never gonna leave this bed uh

Take it, take it all take all that I have
I'd give it all away just to get you back
And fake it, fake it I'll take what I can get
Knocking so loud, can you hear me yet?
Try to stay awake but you can't forget

Wake you up in the middle of the night to say,
I will never walk away again
I'm never gonna leave this bed
Oh, you say go
It isn't worth it and I say no
It isn't perfect so I stay and still
I'm never gonna leave this bed uh

Take it, take it all take all that I have
Take it, take it all take all that I have
Take it, take it all take all that I have
Take it, take it all take all that I have
Take it, take it all take all that I have
Take it, take it all take all that I have
Take it, take it all take all that I have

    My InterpretationThis song speaks of the emotional rollercoaster that individuals in a relationship experience and represents the desire to grow, first starting from his declaration of commitment.

    He implies that she wants things this way and that way. She "pushes [him]", but he doesn't "have the strenght to resist" her. When he mentions how he can't "control" her, he means that she's stubborn and wants everything her way. She's not going to take no for an answer and she possibly throws tantrums when she can't get her way. She "hurt[s]" him when she tries and gets everything her way regardless. She also probably wants a lot of committment based on the fact that he's asking her to "trust [him]". He's reiterating to her that he'll "never walk away again". Her trust issues might stem from the fact that he either cheated [not likely] or he wanted to walk away from her due to her being too demanding as indicated by his lack of strength. He realized most likely that he took her for granted too and that he really loves her because she makes him happy. When he refers to the "bed", it means that sex wasn't just what he wanted. She won't wake up in the morning to find that the other side of the bed is empty. He won't leave like that. They experience a lot of problems because even she realizes that "it isn't working". He tells her "it isn't worth it" which ties with the idea that he took her for granted (therefore leading to his first departure), but he "stay[s] instead" because he knows that she's the one he wants now. He made the mistake of leaving her, but he must have came to the conclusion that she was what made him happy. He repeats, "take it, take it all, take all that i have" because he's showing that nothing means anything to him anymore if it meant losing her. He would give anything to remain with her. This seems like an issue in their relationship before. He probably didn't want to change or do something for her and her demands started to get too tiring, but their time apart showed him that none of those things or those changes that he opposed were good enough compared to her. He chooses her because she's his source of happiness.

    I LOVE THIS SONG.

    General CommentI think the first two verses are him talking about how she feels. I think she is afraid of being hurt again and is having troubles trusting him and loving him again like she did before he cheated. and the chorus is him reasurring her that he loves her and he regrets his previous decisions. "wake you up in the middle of the night to say i will never walk away again, im never gonna leave this bed." and the 4th verse "fall down, i need you to trust me." he wants her to love him the way she used to and not be afraid. also the part, "you say no it isnt working, and i say no it isnt perfect." he knows there relationship is messed up, but he wants her so he wants to fix it. also the part, "fake it, fake it ill take what i can get. knocking so loud, can you hear me yet?" he feels like she knows she's faking to still love him, because she wants to but shes scared. and he is just trying to get the trust back. idk, thats my thoughts. no one had the same thoughts, so i thought id share mine. hah (:

    General CommentI agree that this represents the emotional roller coaster of a relationship. Give & take.
    This song is so honest and genuine and when he sings "You make me so nervous calm me down, calm me down"
    I can just feel the butterfly-in-stomach feeling.

    General CommentI think this song is about a damaged relationship. It's about two people who have somehow hurt each other spending a night together, trying to talk it through, maybe even trying to forgive.

    Good song.

    General CommentI love, love, love this song. It really hits home for me on a lot of different levels because it's so honest.

    I believe that the song is about a guy who wants to fall in love... with a girl who is wrong for him.
    The situation makes him uncomfortable, but at the same time he finds comfort in that.

    He's singing about the internal battle of wanting to walk away, but not being able to resist...and the idea that "you cant help who you fall in love with"

    General CommentI think the song is basically Adam saying that although he knows they have ups and downs in their relationship and he gets a little confused, he promises her he will never leave her. He is declaring his commitment to her, that no matter what he will never walk out on her. It's such a sweet song, my favorite on the album as well :)

    Lyric CorrectionI think the lyric is "it isn't working" instead of "It isn't worth it"
    and
    "So I'll stay instead" instead of "So I stay and still"


    Beautiful song
