  • I asked her to stay
    But she wouldn't listen
    And she left before I had the chance to say, oh
    The words that would mend
    The things that were broken
    But now it's far too late, she's gone away

    Every night you cry yourself to sleep
    Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
    Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
    Hard to believe that

    It's not over tonight
    Just give me one more chance to make it right
    I may not make it through the night
    I won't go home without you

    The taste of her breath
    I'll never get over
    The noises that you made kept me awake
    The weight of the things
    that remained unspoken
    Built up so much it crushed us everyday

    Every night you cry yourself to sleep
    Thinking "Why does this happen to me?
    Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
    Hard to believe that

    It's not over tonight
    Just give me one more chance to make it right
    I may not make it through the night
    I won't go home without you

    Of all the things I felt but never really shown
    Perhaps the worst is that I ever let you go
    I should not ever let you go, oh, oh, oh

    It's not over tonight
    Just give me one more chance to make it right
    I may not make it through the night
    I won't go home without you
    I won't go home without you
    I won't go home without you
    I won't go home without you Writer/s: Adam Levine

  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOh my God! When this came out...I already loved Maroon5 but I got my buddie singin' this too! lol I love Adam's voice in this!!
  • Staley from Dallas, TxThis is my favorite of Maroon 5's songs; it reminds me of the kind of quirky pop-rock they used to have in the 70s, when a song could be catchy and the singers didn't have to all sound like Movie Trailer announcers.
  • Seema from Mumbai, IndiaCommunicating your love for someone is so important!
    "The weight of things that remain unspoken Built up so much it crushed us everyday". So much remained unspoken that it broke both of them and now the guy is asking for a chance to make everything all right.

    A very beautiful song!!!
  • Diana from Houston, TxTania Raymonde, who has starred in Malcolm in the Middle, and Lost as Alex, is in the video for this song as lead singer Adam Levine's ex-girlfriend.
