"No Curtain Call" as written by Adam Levine, Jesse Royal Carmichael, Mickey Madden, James Valentine and Rodney Jerkins....
You say you need someone
But everybody does
I'm no different than you
I just believe what I do

You point your finger at
Everyone but yourself
And blame the ones that you love
Who are only trying to help

As it's winding down to zero
I am yours like a hero
I'll see this through
There's so much me and you
Take this enemy together
Fight these demons off forever forever forever forever

Five, four, three, two, one I won't stop until it's done
No curtain call, I will not fall
This may be the one we've been waiting for
No curtain call, just take it all

I have no time for fear
Or people in my ear
Head down and running so fast
Try not to dwell on the past

I'm fighting through this pain
And things I cannot change
Running right into the flame
Rather than running away

As it's winding down to zero
I am yours like a hero
I'll see this through
There's so much me and you
Take this enemy together
Fight these demons off forever forever forever forever

Five, four, three, two, one I won't stop until it's done
No curtain call, I will not fall
This may be the one we've been waiting for
No curtain call, just take it all

Sweat drips down from every angle
Love your body as it gathers in a pool by your feet
You turn up the heat
Tossing and turning, you cannot sleep
Quietly weep, you're in too deep

Five, four, three, two, one I won't stop until it's done
No curtain call, I will not fall
This may be the one we've been waiting for
No curtain call, just take it all

Five, four, three, two, one I won't stop until it's done
No curtain call, I will not fall
This may be the one we've been waiting for
No curtain call, just take it all

    Lyric Correction"But everybody does" sounds more like "Well everybody does"
    "I am yours like a hero" sounds more like "I am your unlikely hero"

    General CommentI think this song is about Adam's frustration with the girl he's with, or maybe even a friend. The person he is singing about obviously has a lot of problems and she is "pointing the finger at everyone but herself", but he is still trying to stay with her and save her aka "running through the flame instead of running away". The song is basically his plea to her, to figure herself out and get the help he needs, or just get him help her aka "Take this enemy together, fight these demons off forever forever forever forever" He is saying, we could be something great, and I'm not trying to end us, but you need to let me help you. It could very easily be about some sort of addiction or disorder in my opinion.

    General CommentI agree with the previous comment... but I also read it as maybe someone he cares about - girlfriend or whatever - struggling with night terrors or something similar and refuses all attempts of help? "tossing and turning.." "take this enemy together,

    Lyric Correction"There's so much me and you" --> sounds more like "There's so much me in you" ... makes more sense IMO.
