Oh oh oh, oh oh oh...
Oh oh oh...

[Verse:]

She's starin' at me,
I'm sittin', wonderin' what she's thinkin'.
Mmmmm
Nobody's talkin',
'Cause talkin' just turns into screamin'.
Ohhh...
And now is I'm yellin' over her,
She's yellin' over me.
All that that means
Is neither of us is listening,
(And what's even worse).
That we don't even remember why were fighting.

So both of us are mad for...

[Hook:]

Nothin'
(Fighting for).
Nothin'
(Crying for).
Nothin'
(Whoahhh).
But we won't let it go for
Nothin'
(No not for)
Nothin'.
This should be nothin' to a love like what we got.
Ohhh, baby...

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain...
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(can't sleep through the pain).

[Chorus:]

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Ohhh no no no...

[Verse 2:]

And it gets me upset, girl
When you're constantly accusing.
(Askin' questions like you've already known).
We're fighting this war, baby
When both of us are losing.
(This ain't the way that love is supposed to go).

Whoaaaaaaaaa...
[What happened to workin' it out].
We've falled into this place
Where you ain't backin' down
And I ain't backin' down.

So what the hell do we do now...
It's all for...

[Hook:]

Nothin'
(Fighting for).
Nothin'
(Crying for).
Nothin'
(Whoahhh).
But we won't let it go for
Nothin'
(No not for)
Nothin'.
This should be nothin' to a love like what we got.
Ohhh, baby...

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain...
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(can't sleep through the pain).

[Chorus:]

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Ohhh no no no...

[Bridge:]

Oh baby this love ain't gonna be perfect,
(Perfect, perfect, oh oh).
And just how good it's gonna be.
We can fuss and we can fight
Long as everything alright between us
Before we go to sleep.

Baby, we're gonna be happy.

I know sometimes
It's gonna rain...
But baby, can we make up now
'Cause I can't sleep through the pain
(can't sleep through the pain).

[Chorus:]

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me).
No, I don't wanna go to bed
(Mad at you),
And I don't want you to go to bed
(Mad at me)
Ohhh no no no...

    This song is the best, its myne n my fiances song cuz were always mad at each ova but we h8 it wen we go t sleep mad at each other. My advice to pple hu read this is. If your in love the don't get mad cuz at da end ov da day, if you go to sleep mad theres no garuantee that ull wake up and if you do they might not be there waiting for you. Keep hold ov that special person n never let them go.
    Thanks for this song ne-yo.

    I'm totally in love with this song 'cause every time I hear the chorus part of it, what comes in my mind is that. Every relationship has a part where there's fighting, arguing, breakin' up or leavin' but that's really a part of it and without those, relationships won't get any stronger. So, the best thing to do is. Make up :) 'cause that's the golden way where you can keep relationships stable. Just like what me and my boyfriend do, because arguing would just turn out into 2 possible things, it's either it would make your relationship stronger or worse. Ne-Yo's songs are the greatest! :) it's all meaningful.

    The meaning of this song is that, fighting between two lovers without any valid reason is so very nonsence. Mostly people are fighting cause of their past when they remembered they got mad. Some people can't forget easily the bad things happened in their past relationship specially if one of them got a third party/fling to other people. Mad is really a beautiful song it makes me realize that fighting to my bf is a nonsence thing. He loves me so much so I think he deserved to be loved more and more.

    You can't work things out if you keep on arguing with your partner if a problem existed, because sometimes arguments can make the situation worst!
    Try to work things out by talking to your partner in a smooth and sweetest way you know, and I assure you guys at the end you'll feel relieve and both of you will be happy and have a great smile after (like this =D).
    A piece of advice: be open to your partner, trust, respect, love and accept him/her with all you heart.

    This song means that no matter what is going on in your relationship you should work it out without fighting. This songs shows that some stuff we argue about with our spouse is stupid. I love this song cuz I hate being mad at my boyfriend and I hate arguing with him. All relationships arent perfect so you have to work it out. And some advice is to not talk to friends about it just talk to him and then when yall make up tell them cuz all they do is judge and sometimes give you the wrong advice.
