Maroon 5 – Maps lyrics

[Verse 1]
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
?

[Hook]
I was there for you, in your darkest times
I was there for you, in your darkest nights

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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


[Verse 2]
I hear your voice in 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


[Hook]
I was there for you, in your darkest times
I was there for you, in your darkest nights

[Pre-Chorus]
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


[Bridge]
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


[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Outro]
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.

    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!

    The song is about somebody who took care of their love when they were upset or hurt but then when the persons was upset or hurt the love didn't do anything and now the person wants to find their love who didn't care about the person and can't get over the person.
