Song meaning of This Love by Maroon 5, and what it is about


Levine disclosed that he created the song the day following their breakup, when his girlfriend walked out.


Levine disclosed in a different interview that he wrote the song during the "most emotionally trying time" of his life. In addition, he said, "I was in a relationship that was coming to an end, but I was incredibly excited to go into the studio since the band was going to record the record.


I had written 'This Love's lyrics when she was practically heading out of town, so I was in a good emotional state to write a song with that kind of conflict."


Lyrics of This Love by Maroon 5


I was so high I did not recognize

The fire burning in her eyes

The chaos that controlled my mind

Whispered "Goodbye" as she got on a plane

Never to return again

But always in my heart, oh

 

This love has taken its toll on me

She said "Goodbye" too many times before

And her heart is breaking in front of me

And I have no choice 'cause I won't say "Goodbye" anymore

 

Whoa, oh, oh

Whoa, oh, oh

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

 

I tried my best to feed her appetite

Keep her coming every night

So hard to keep her satisfied, oh

Kept playing love like it was just a game

Pretending to feel the same

Then turn around and leave again

But I know

 

This love has taken its toll on me

She said "Goodbye" too many times before

And her heart is breaking in front of me

And I have no choice 'cause I won't say "Goodbye" anymore

 

Whoa, oh, oh

Whoa, oh, oh

Whoa, oh, oh, oh

 

I'll fix these broken things

Repair your broken wings

And make sure everything's alright

(It's alright, it's alright)

My pressure on your hips

Sinking my fingertips

Into every inch of you

'Cause I know that's what you want me to do

 

This love has taken its toll on me

She said "Goodbye" too many times before

Her heart is breaking in front of me

And I have no choice 'cause I won't say "Goodbye" anymore

 

This love has taken its toll on me

She said "Goodbye" too many times before

And my heart is breaking in front of me

She said "Goodbye" too many times before

 

This love has taken its toll on me

(Oh, yeah, yeah)

She said "Goodbye" too many times before

(Yeah)

And her heart is breaking in front of me

(Yeah)

And I have no choice 'cause I won't say "Goodbye" anymore

 

This love has taken its toll on me
