Maroon 5 – Daylight lyrics

Here I am waiting, I'll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on?
We knew this day would come, we knew it all along
How did it, come so fast?

This is our last night, but it's late
And I'm trying not to sleep

Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away ,
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah

Here I am staring, at your perfection
In my arms, so beautiful
The sky is getting bright the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down

This is way, too hard, 'cause I know
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my, last glance, that will soon be memory,
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close

Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah

I never wanted to stop because
I don't wanna start all over, start all over
I was afraid of the dark but now it's all that
I want, all that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close

Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah (yeah)
Oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah!

    I think this song is about having to leave a love, and highlights the difficulty and pain in doing so. It accurately depicts how it feels to have only a few hours left. It's not a pledge of love for always, but a message saying that for now, they don't want to go and the writer just wants the precious time to last forever. I think this is important, as there is nothing saying "I'll see you again" or "I'll never forget you" as these are empty promises, the lyrics identify a feeling of love without creating a false sense of hope; the complete lack of hope in this song rightly shows the desperation of the situation. This is identifiable with so many people, as most have had to feel that horrible wrenching of having to leave someone. Through both the lyrics and the rhythm, the song accurately conveys the thoughts and feelings of the dread of leaving a lover.
