Sugar - Maroon 5


The Experience: Maroon 5 bring out their new single from the Album 'V' is Sugar. If the sex drive in Animals was, well, animal, Sugar is sweeter, but the girl in the lyrics is only edible... 

Music videoSugar is a cute music video of Maroon 5 crashing wedding receptions to play for the newlyweds. But the cuteness clashes with lyrics that are demeaning to women and men alike.

The meaning of Sugar is describing being in love like loving candy. Like a sugar-addict needing a sugar-fix, the lyrics say I need it now in all sorts of ways. (It's killing me... begging... I gotta get... You are the one thing I'm living for...) Sound cool? But if love is just filling up a need, you're just an object to the person who says he loves/needs you. And comparing love (or sex) to hunger leaves relationships just biological. So Sugar-love is just a biological need, the same way I really love ice cream. Wait! Is that really love? 

Ask yourself: How many things do people call 'being in love'? Which kinds are real?


LYRICS:
I'm hurting, baby, I'm broken down
I need your loving, loving
I need it now
When I'm without you
I'm something weak
You got me begging, begging
I'm on my knees

I don't wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it's killing me when you're away
Ooh, baby, 'cause I really don't care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

Sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me
I'm right here, 'cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me

My broken pieces
You put them up
Don't leave me hanging, hanging
Come give me some
When I'm without ya
I'm so insecure
You are the one thing, one thing
I'm living for

I don't wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it's killing me when you're away
Ooh, baby, 'cause I really don't care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

Sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me
I'm right here, 'cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Sugar! (Sugar!)
Yes, please (Yes, please)
Won't you come and put it down on me

Yeah
I want that red velvet
I want that sugar sweet
Don't let nobody touch it
Unless that somebody's me
I gotta be a man
There ain't no other way
'Cause girl you're hotter 
Than a southern California Bay

I don't wanna play no games
I don't gotta be afraid
Don't give all that shy sh-t
No make up on
That's my

Sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me (down on me!)
Oh, right here (right here), 'cause I need (I need)
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Sugar! (Sugar!)
Yes, please (Yes, please)
Won't you come and put it down on me

Sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me
I'm right here, 'cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me
