All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said show me something
He said, if you dare come a little closer

Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given
Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

Ohhh the reason I hold on
Ohhh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you're the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the lights it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, ohhh

    The song is about finding love not losing it as one might think. It's not about someone asking another person not to leave them, but rather two people who have a part of them that is missing and they wish for the other to stay and fill that void in love. How often is it the case that you have someone that totally does it for you but they're not free to experience it? In this case it seems like they both feet that way about one another. They're not sure if they can give in to the other because they have never experienced this thing called love. It's pretty awesome. The song and love.

    It's about two people living together but the relationship is straining. They love each other but they are having so many arguments and they are fighting with each other. However, even though their love is slightly shaky, they can't live without each other. They need each other and still want to be with each other. Basically they have hard times but still love each other and this is a very hard situation where leaving each other and staying with each other is going to lead to a bad consequence.

    This song is about a woman who is afraid to leave the relationship she is in because she is afraid no one else will love her, even though she is being abused which is ironic because when Chris Brown and Rihanna were together Chris Brown reportedly abused her which is almost like a secret way of trying to reach for help, a cry out loud, which is clearly stated in the song when Rihanna says " It's funny your the broken one , but i'm the only one who needed saving" Which to me basically meant he was the broken one because he was abusing her but she was the only one who needed saving because she couldn't physically take it but she was afraid of telling the public or reporting it in fear of what he might do to her.

    Am I the only one who did not like Rihanna's voice in that song? Hell I felt that Rikki Ekko practically carried that song. Its a beautiful song. I just wish he had found somebody else to sing it with him.Rihanna need to understand that yes the song is an emotional song bu u still need to sound good singing it.
    If you guys think I am wrong. Listen to the song again. (objectively). Listen to Rihanna's voice in the song and hear how flat she sounds.
    Hey I am Rihanna fan just like you guys but if the shoe doesn't fit...
