Maroon 5 – Maps lyrics

I miss the taste of a sweeter life
I miss
the conversation
I'm searching
for a song tonight
I'm changing
all of the stations

I like
to think that we had it all
We drew a map to a better place
But on
that road, I took a fall
Oh baby, why did you run away?

I was
there for you, in your darkest times
I was there for you, in your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you?
When I was at my worst down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you?
When all the roads
you took came back to me
So I'm following the
map that leads to you
The map that leads
to you
Ain't nothing I can do
, the map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you, ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

I hear your voice at my sleep at night
Hard to resist temptation
'Cause something strange has come over me
And now I can't get over you
No I just can't get over you

I was there for you, in your
darkest times
I was there for you, in your darkest
nights

But I wonder where were you?
When I was at my worst down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you?
When all the
roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do, the map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you, ain't nothing I can
do
The map that leads to you

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah
Ah ah ah

Oh
I was there for you, oh in your darkest time
Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest night
Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest time
Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest night

But I wonder where were you?
When I was at my worst down on my
knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you?
When all the
roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do, the map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you, ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

    This song can mean for both Love Relationships and Friendships. The song is about a person who was there for their friend/lover in their hard and troubling times. But then when the person him/herself was in trouble, the friend/lover wasn't there for them even though they said they would be there. Since his/her friend/lover came to him (of all people) when they were down in troubling times. He decides to go and find that friend/lover (which didn't even care about the person) because he has no choice and no one to go to.

    The guy was caught being intimate with another person by his lover. He decides to go and find his lover because he wanted to explain and ask for her forgiveness. He was in trouble because he thought his lover will forgive him. But his lover run away and before he could patch things up with her. His lover was gone. He has a choice since it involved him and his lover. There is always a choice. If there is no one to go to, be free and direct so both will know what's going on. People care.

    The speaker met or found someone with whom he fell in love. The person brought richness and meaning to his life but this person didn't stay, even though he hoped she would. She must have promised always to be there for him but she had to go. He misses her and feels they were both compatible and destined to be together, so he is following all the signs (or any sign) that will connect them again. Until then, he remains haunted by her memory, the sound of her voice and the feelings he felt when they were together.

    This song is about the singer is in love with a girl but isn't loved back. He uses a lot of metaphors. When he says the roads lead back to you he means instead that the signs show that they were meant to be and he cant do anything about it. The theme is that if you love something but arnt loved back let it go, but if your loved back peruse it.

    I think it means he got caught with another girl and his girlfriend left him. The guy tried to fix things with his girlfriend and apologize, but it was too late. She was one. It shows this in the music video for Maps. Disagree, guys must make sure that you don't mess up with your girl whether she is in front of you or when she is not around! Also for gals who have boyfriend!
