Song Meaning and Background of Sugar by Maroon 5


In order to feature on his subsequent album, Pages, American singer-songwriter Mike Posner began writing songs. "Sugar," was one of the songs slated for the record, and he intially rejected Adam Levine's, Maroon 5's lead singer, request to have it appear on the upcoming band's new album.


Posner shifted labels in 2014, at which point she revealed that Pages would not be published and that a new body of music would be composed.


Lyrically, to the song is sang to the singer's love interest, "I just wanna be there where you are/And I gotta get one little taste". The song's lyrics use the word "sugar" to describe having sexual intimacy.


Lyrics of Sugar by Maroon 5


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

 

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, ooh, 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

 

Your sugar

Yes, please

Won't 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

Won't you come and put it down on me?

 

My broken pieces

You pick them up

Don't leave me hanging, hanging

Come give me some

When I'm without ya

I'm so insecure

You are the one thing, one thing

I'm living for

 

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, ooh, 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

 

Your sugar

Yes, please

Won't 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! (sugar!)

Yes, please (yes, please)

Won't you come and put it down on me?

 

Yeah

I want that red velvet

I want that sugar sweet

Don't let nobody touch it

Unless that somebody's me

I gotta be your man

There ain't no other way

'Cause girl you're hotter than a southern California day

 

I don't wanna play no games

You don't gotta be afraid

Don't give me all that shy shit

No make-up on

That's my

 

Sugar
