Usher – Climax lyrics

Going nowhere fast
We've reached the climax
We're together, now we're undone
Won't commit so we choose to


Run away, do we separate (oh)
Don't wanna give in
So we both gave up
Can't take it back
It's too late we've reached the climax, climax

I've fallen somehow, feet off the ground
Love is the blow, that keeps raining down
Where are you now? When I need you around
I'm on my knees but it seems we're

Going nowhere fast
We've reached the climax
We're together, now we're undone
Won't commit so we choose to

Run away, do we separate (oh)
Don't wanna give in
So we both gave up
Can't take it back
It's too late we've reached the climax, climax

I gave my best, it wasn't enough
You kept on saying we argue too much

We made our best of what used to be love
Why do I care, I care at all, at all, at all, at all

Going nowhere fast
We've reached the climax
We're together, now we're undone
Won't commit so we choose to

Run away, do we separate (oh)
Don't wanna give in
So we both gave up
Can't take it back
It's too late we've reached the climax, climax

You say, it's better if we love each other separately
I just need you one more time
I can't get what we had out my mind
Where are you now? When I need you around
I'm on my knees but it seems we're

Going nowhere fast
We've reached the climax
We're together, now we're undone
Won't commit so we choose to

Run away, do we separate (oh)
Don't wanna give in
So we both gave up
Can't take it back
It's too late we've reached the climax, climax

    A boy and a girl. They've been together for a while. Through the years, they've seen hard times. They're only human, so like anyone else, they've made mistakes. Mistakes that they've forgiven, but not forgot even though they've tried there hardest to. After everything's build up, a past full of love and hate. They want each other more then anything in the world, but they're both finding it hard to trust each other and move past the insecurities they've brought upon each other. They love each other more than anything, but how can they be happy when they're constantly thinking about the past?

    I think that uhmm, first let me state that there is a such thing as love but I so happen to think that the relationship he had with that someone is basically done but in that song hes stating that he still I guess wanna be in that relationship with that person but if she doesn't then its over between them. In my casonario I think that this is a beuatiful song I love it is one of my favorite songs ever!

    I love this record maybe more than anything else usher has done to this point. That's a monumental statement considering the many monstrous he has had in his stellar career. I appreciate his growth as an artist and as a man. We(men) suffer and hurt for love and its often misinterpreted or sadly not recognized at all. I salute you usher for taking what seems at first to be another tired s** song(only because of the title) and gave it such meaning, feeling and something relatable. I hope that you continue to share your pain, experiences and eloquently vocalize our vulnerablities and angst. Kp.

    Many people think the song "climax" by usher is about s** it's not! Its really about an ultimate experience or lack thereof or a finale of an experience of love and life. When you are in a relationship or what you figure to be in a relationship and its kinda reached the climax to where you want it to go. You have to let it go if you are not going to commit. That's what the song is about! Its my fav. Its about reaching the peak. The "climax" of an relationship its up to you do we commitment or like the song says "do we separate". It's up to you!

    Seems to me they are at a cross roads of a long, love&hate filled relationship. They don't know if they can live with each other any longer but can't imagine ending it. So they take a break to figure out the future and bam, outta nowhere he meets another girl that is everything he's wanted the ex to B. But, he's still not sure what to do, he doesn't want to give up on the ex until she tells him she's definitely done or they agree to end it. But this amazing new chick is weighing heavy on his mind. Finally he decides he's not waiting on a mutual decision and he's giving in.
