Album: Songs About Jane (2003)
  • Watch the sunrise
    Say your goodbyes
    Off we go
    Some conversation
    No contemplation
    Hit the road

    Car overheats
    Jump out of my seat
    On the side of the highway, baby
    Our road is long
    Your hold is strong
    Please don't ever let it go, oh no

    I know I don't know you
    But I want you so bad
    Everyone has a secret
    Oh, can they keep it?
    Oh, no they can't

    Driving fast now
    Don't think I know how to go slow
    Oh where you at now?
    I feel around
    There you are

    Cool these engines
    Calm these jets
    I ask you, how hot can it get?
    And as you wipe off beads of sweat
    Slowly, you say, I'm not there yet

    I know I don't know you
    But I want you so bad
    Everyone has a secret
    Oh, can they keep it?
    Oh, no they can't

    I know I don't know you
    But I want you so bad
    Everyone has a secret
    Oh but can they keep it?
    Oh, oh no they can't Writer/s: Adam Levine, James Valentine, Jesse Royal Carmichael, Mickey Madden, Ryan Michael Dusick

  • Rose from Rochester Hills , MiAt a recent Maroon 5 concert in the Detroit MI area, Adam Levine said that he wrote this song with someone in mind that he wanted physically.
