Must Get Out

Album: Songs About Jane (2002)
Charted: 39
  • I've been the needle and the thread
    Weaving figure eights and circles around your head
    I try to laugh but cry instead
    Patiently wait to hear the words you've never said

    Fumbling through your dresser drawer
    Forgot what I was looking for
    Try to guide me in the right direction
    Making use of all this time
    Keeping everything inside
    Close my eyes and listen to you cry

    I'm lifting you up
    I'm letting you down
    I'm dancing till dawn
    I'm fooling around
    I'm not giving up
    I'm making your love
    This city's made us crazy and we must get out

    "This is not goodbye," she said
    "It's just time for me to rest my head"
    She does not walk, she runs instead
    Down these jagged streets and into my bed

    When I was fumbling through your dresser drawer
    Forgot what I was looking for
    Try to guide me in the right direction
    Making use of all this time
    Keeping everything inside
    Close my eyes and listen to you cry

    I'm lifting you up
    I'm letting you down
    I'm dancing till dawn
    I'm fooling around
    I'm not giving up
    I'm making your love
    This city's made us crazy and we must get out

    There's only so much I can do for you
    After all of the things you've put me through

    I'm lifting you up
    I'm letting you down
    I'm dancing till dawn
    I'm fooling around
    I'm not giving up
    I'm making your love
    This city's made us crazy and we must get out

    I'm lifting you up
    I'm letting you down
    I'm dancing till dawn
    I'm fooling around
    I'm not giving up
    I'm making your love
    This city's made us crazy and we must get out

    I'm lifting you up (oh oh)
    I'm letting you down (oh oh)
    I'm dancing till dawn (oh oh)
    I'm fooling around (oh oh)
    I'm not giving up (oh oh)
    I'm making your love (oh oh)
    This city's made us crazy and we must get out (oh oh) Writer/s: Adam Levine, Jesse Royal Carmichael, Ryan Michael Dusick, James Valentine, Mickey Madden

  • Claire from Miller's, MdMe, personally I realy like this song=)
  • Sara from Camborne, EnglandI think maybe the part that goes "Fumblin' through your dresser drawer, forgot what I was looking for, try to guide me in the right direction", I reckon 'dresser drawer' is a metaphor, with 'try to guide me in the right direction' being a way to say he wants to make her feel good enough, by pleasuring her for her to tell him she loves him.
  • Alisa from Franklin, WiMy least favorite song from their album.
