"If I Never See Your Face Again" as written by Adam Levine and James Valentine....
Now as the summer fades, I'll let you slip away
You say I'm not your type, but I can make you sway
It makes me burn to learn you're not the only one
I'll let you be if you put down your blazing gun

Now you've gone somewhere else far away
I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
But you feel my breath on your neck
Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Sometimes you move so well it's hard not to give in
I'm lost; I can't tell where you end and I begin
It makes me burn to learn you're with another man
I wonder if he's half the lover that I am

Now you've gone somewhere else far away
I don't know if I will find you (find you, find you)
But you feel my breath on your neck
Can't believe I'm right behind you (right behind you)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

Baby, baby, please believe me
Find it in your heart to reach me
Promise not to leave me behind
(Promise not to leave me behind)

Take me back, but take it easy
Make me think, but don't deceive me
Talk to me by taking your time
(Talk to me, talk to me)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

(Talk to me, talk to me)

'Cause you keep me coming back for more
And I feel a little better than I did before
And if I never see your face again, I don't mind
'Cause we got much further than I thought we'd get tonight

    General CommentI think its about a couple that had a really bitter break up after a perfect relationship.
    "Now as the summer fades
    I let you slip away"


    They both now have other partners however there is obviously still the sexual attraction and chemistry there between them.
    "It makes me/you burn to learn..."

    Then one day they meet up and give in to each other, and then they realise that they should get back together and the guy breaks it off with his new partner..."Find it in your heart to reach me
    Promise not to leave me behind"

    but the girl doesnt or takes extremely long to do so..

    ANYWAY THIS SONG IS FANTASTIC! THE BEST MAROON 5 SONG EVER!!! THE ORIGINAL IS BETTER THAN THE RIHANNA VERSION :)

    General CommentDefinitely about sex, but I disagree with the one night stand theory. I think it was a relationship that failed, otherwise, why would it make either person "burn to learn" they're not the only one...

    General CommentThis song doesn't seem all that sexual if u think of it a bit differently.
    It seems to me like these 2 had a really complicated relationship and broke up. Then they went into one of those really bitter break up stages and they are constantly messing with eachother, for example, trying ot make each other jealous:

    "It makes me burn to learn
    You’re with another man
    I wonder if he’s half
    The lover that I am"
    and doesnt it seem that even though they "never want to see each other again" they just won't let it go.

    haha but...the twist at the end is that as bitter as they are towards eachother, they both want eacother back badly:
    "Take me back, but take it easy
    Make me think but don’t deceive me"
    that just how i see it
    agree or disagree

    General CommentRihanna did ruin it.
    He actually sang it well on his own .
    About a relationship where I think the woman has her guards up ( blazing gun) .
    He strays but he’s on her tracks all the time and he can’t help it.
    I think they both stray but get back together all the time because wherever they seem to stray doesn’t compare to what they have together.
    But he doesn’t want to be deceived ( who does anyways)
    Even if he never sees her again it would be okay for him as long he knows he was THE ONE for her.
    Could be both are married and it’s okay as long as they were the inescapable for each other.
    Can’t believe I am right behind you. ( sexy)
    You move so well it’s hard not to give in (way she handles things)
    I am lost where you end and I begin (he seems to forget everything when he’s with her)
    It’s a very sexy song where they seem addicted to each other and reach out.
    Guess the song is before withdrawal.
    One learns how precious it is to be with someon e you feel that’s way about.
    I have been there

    "I left you, be a field
    Put down your blazing gun"

    I hear
    "I'll let you be
    If you put down your blazing gun"

    For
    "we ever might"

    I hear "we'd get tonight"
