    I'm strayed
    Enough

    Oh say say say
    Oh say say say
    Oh say say say
    Oh say say say
    Oh say say say

    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Maps
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you

    Made off
    Don't stray
    My kind's your kind
    I'll stay the same
    Pack up
    Don't stray
    Oh say say say
    Oh say say say

    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Maps
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you

    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Maps
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you

    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Maps
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you

    Wait, they don't love you like I love you
    Maps
    Wait, they don't love you like I love you Writer/s: Brian Chase, Karen Lee Orzolek, Nicholas Joseph Zinner

  • Felix from Austin, Tx"Kelly Clarkson's hit single 'Since U Been Gone' features a precise replica of this song's guitar break. Karen O was not impressed."

    I think Ted Leo thinks similarly, as he has a great cover of "Since U Been Gone" that, after the shared guitar break, goes right into "Maps." :)
  • Miranda from Columbus, OhI recently experianced heartbreak....or, just a love leaving you. I would listen to this for hours on end.


    I love this song. Karen O never fails to impress.
  • Tomas from Hialeah, FlThis song makes me feel so special. You feel like she's singing to you and telling you she loves you.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnJust a slow-burning, simple love song. Karen O is too cool for words.
  • Dj from Hope, NjThis is one of my all time favorites. There is also an acoustic version on the "Sessions" section of AOL music that blew me away the first time I heard it. The acoustic version is one of those very rare songs that can accurately be described as being haunting.
  • Mle from Plano, UtThats the thing about artists......they really speak there mind in songs...in an original and unique ...way....Kim, i think had an idea about Maps being an acroynm...but artist are very hard to understand
  • Kim from Calgary, AbI heard that "maps" is an acronym for "My Angus please stay". It makes sense with the lyrics.
  • Harley from Singapore, SingaporeI derive that "Maps" is for Karen's ex-BF. He needs to have Maps to understand that the route he took (as what Katie mentioned) is wrong, the lyrics actually does make sense when you relate to the reason of the breakup.
  • Billy from Calgary, CanadaHow romantic, and you have to admit that the drum beat is pretty catchy.

    Not to mention I haven't the slightest clue what 'maps' mean.
  • Darwin from El Paso, TxWhen we partied we would blast this song and have it playing over and over and over
  • Shannon Mulvany from Spokane, WaThis is a great song. It's catchy.
  • Ben from Bristol, EnglandThe White Stripes covered this at their Reading headlining slot of 2004
  • Dave from Watertown, CtLove this song. So much passion and energy in her voice and lyrics. Reminds me of The Pretenders.
