Maroon 5 – Daylight lyrics
Here I am waiting, I'll have to leave soon
Why am I still holding on?
We knew this day would come, we knew it all along
How did it, come so fast
?
This is our last night but it's late
And I'm trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Here I am staring at your perfection
In my arms, so beautiful
The sky is getting bright the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down
This is way too hard, cause I know
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
I never wanted to stop because I don't wanna start all over, start all over
I was afraid of the dark but now it's all that I want, all that I want, all that I want
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah (yeah)
Oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah (yeah), oh-woah!

    I think this song is about having to leave a love, and highlights the difficulty and pain in doing so. It accurately depicts how it feels to have only a few hours left. It's not a pledge of love for always, but a message saying that for now, they don't want to go and the writer just wants the precious time to last forever. I think this is important, as there is nothing saying "I'll see you again" or "I'll never forget you" as these are empty promises, the lyrics identify a feeling of love without creating a false sense of hope; the complete lack of hope in this song rightly shows the desperation of the situation. This is identifiable with so many people, as most have had to feel that horrible wrenching of having to leave someone. Through both the lyrics and the rhythm, the song accurately conveys the thoughts and feelings of the dread of leaving a lover.

    I think this song is about a couple who can not be together for whatever reason, or a long distance relationship.
    For the first guess, that they can not be together, this song is set on the last night they are together, and they know in the morning that they won't be able to be together anymore, and the singer is trying to figure out why he doesn't want to let go even though it is unavoidable. And he says that even though the next morning he'll have to go, he will hold her close tonight.
    For the second option, that it is a long distance relationship, I assume they have met up after not seeing each other for a while. The time they were together has gone by so fast, too fast for them, and they know they will have to separate again in the morning so they decide to make their last night as good as it can be and hold each other close.

    Anyways that's just my humble opinion, you think what you want! :)

    Whenever I here this song I think that its talking about how this women's man is having to off to a military or something like that. It just reminds me so much of the real world. For example someone once told me "you know when your in love when you cant sleep at night because you realize your dreams are finally better then reality." I live, breathe, and rally Love that quote. And it fits perfectly with the song.
