Maroon 5 – Sugar lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm hurting baby, I'm broken down
I need your loving, loving I need it now
When I'm without you, I'm something weak
You got me begging, begging I'm on my knees


[Pre-Chorus]
I don't wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it's killing me when you're away
Oh baby
Cause I really don't care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are

And I gotta get one little taste

[Chorus]
Sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving, make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me
?

[Verse 2]
Babe, my broken pieces, you pick them up
Don't leave me hanging, hanging come give me some
When I'm without you, I'm so insecure
You are the one thing, one thing I'm living for

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it's killing me when you're away

Oh baby
Cause I really don't care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste


[Chorus]
Sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving, make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me?

[Bridge]
I want that red velvet
I want that sugar sweet

Don't let nobody touch it unless that somebody's me
I gotta be a man, there ain't no other way
Cause girl you're hotter than the Southern California Bay

And I wanna play no games, and you don't gotta be be afraid
Don't give me all that shy shit
No make-up on, that's my sugar


[Chorus]
Sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving, make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me
?

[Chorus]
Sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving, make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar, yes please
Would you come and put it down on me?

    This is a sexy song about a man in love and wanting to taste his woman's red velvet sugar. It is very suggestive, using red velvet cake as a metaphor for her sexual parts. It's hot and frankly refreshing to hear a man singing a song and praising his beloved's anatomy rather than the usual pop songs about what a woman can do to please a man.

    I think this song is about a love affair of two people who want to be together very bad, but can't because they live in different cities and are with other people. Unhappy with the lives they lead, they dream of the life that could be, the life they want together. I think he sings from his heart the need to be with his soul mate. Sugar is " the kind of love that only comes once in a lifetime". The love that keeps you up at night. The love that makes your heart hurt. The love that brightens up a room when they walk it. The love that makes you smile when you think of them. The kind of love that makes you giggle and feel amazing when your with your sugar.

    This is a song about an insecure guy whose foreplay consists of begging for sex. She says no because she is shy, or because she has no makeup on. "Don't leave me hanging" "I don't wanna be needing your love" "When I'm without you, I'm so insecure" it sounds like they are not in a serious relationship so he doesn't even know if they are still together or not. So he tells her not to cheat on him, "Don't let nobody touch it unless that somebody's me" and the song hints that he wants the relationship to develop into more than just sex "When I'm without you, I'm something weak". The whole busting into weddings things in the music video also hints at this, he wants more than just sex, but if he is dishonest it could be a ploy to get her into bed. Given his insecurity it is likely there is not a lot of trust in the relationship so this is quite possible.

    The song, in sum, is about a speaker who is very in love. Through the use of figurative language such as hyperbole and metaphor, the speaker is able to relay to the readers that the love they feel is understandably new. The speaker compares his trance of love to specialty cakes and sweetness. The connotations of the word "sugar" and "sweet" bring the idea of addictiveness to the reader. Much of the time, anything sweet and sugary is desirable and addictive to a human, much like how to speaker is feeling about his new found love. He is so addicted that he doesn't want to lose it; the thought of it makes him hyperbolically weak and broken. Overall, the theme is shown through the metaphors and hyperboles and really is just saying that many times, humans are addicted to the idea of having someone there. Without love, we aren't whole.

    The guy desperately desires "sugar" in this song and it's obviously something she gives him. Maroon 5 has written this kind of songs before. (Like Misery) The man in these songs is deeply addicted to her and scared of losing her.

    I think this is a love song but not 100% happy song.
    He has something easily breakable in the heart (like other songs of Maroon 5) and "sugar" is the thing to keep it not broken.

    And because Adam sings sexy, I felt "sugar" is something sexy.
    But I think listeners can imagine what "sugar" is.
