Daylight - Maroon 5


www.last.fmBy Simon Cleary

The Experience
"In the daylight we'll be on our own." By daylight, too many people are looking at us. We can’t afford them to see our weaknesses. They’d reject us. So we fake we’re flawless... and end up on our own...


Music Video
The  video goes back and forth between the song and fans sharing their worries, loves and fears. Fear of being rejected or alone. Love for friends who accept them, people who hold them close

My Take
At sundown, other people stop looking. We’re alone with our friends. We can let down our guard with them - "I was afraid of the dark. But now it's all that I want..." - because friends accept us even though we’re not perfect. And we accept them. That’s why we’re close: "Tonight I'm gonna hold you so close…" It's easy to let good moments with those we love slip by while we think about ourselves instead of our friends. Let go of yourself, and hold on to your friends.

Ask Yourself
Who do I let close? Who are your true friends? Who accepts your flaws?

LYRICS:


Here I am waiting, I'll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on
We knew this day would come, We knew it all along
How did it come so fast

This is our last night
But it's late and I'm trying not to sleep
'Cause I know when I wake
I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
'Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa

Here I am staring at your perfection in my arms
So beautiful
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down

This is way too hard
'Cause I know when the sun comes up
I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory

And when the daylight comes I have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
'Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa

I never wanted to stop
Because I don't wanna start all over, start all over
I was afraid of the dark
But now it's all that I want, all that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
'Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
And when the daylight comes I have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
'Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whooa
