Girls Like You - Maroon 5 ft. Card B




The Experience: I need a girl like you... we are all unworthy of the person we love. But that doesn't mean it's wrong to try...

Music video: Maroon 5 plays as a long series of female celebrities share center stage with Adam Levine and each other. Every woman is someone's girl, worthy of being cherished and faithful to.

The Meaning of Girls Like You: The song explores the connection between two people who aren't perfect - too crazy and barely alive - but who are still committed to each other. It's not perfect love: there are drugs - Backwoods is a brand of cigar often bought and re-rolled with marijuana- and Cardi B's way of proclaiming her fidelity is to affirm that when he cheats she only masturbates - play that kitty. But what still pushes through those elements is deep yearning for an authentic relationship.

Ask yourself: Is faithful love just a yearning? Can it be lived? Or are our mistakes, faults and betrayals too much for it?

Album: Red Pill Blues (2017)

LYRICS:


Spent 24 hours, I need more hours with you
You spent the weekend getting even, ooh
We spent the late nights making things right between us
But now it's all good, babe
Roll that backwood, babe
And play me close

'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you

I spent last night on the last flight to you
Took a whole day up trying to get way up, ooh
We spent the daylight trying to make things right between us
But now it's all good, babe
Roll that backwood, babe
And play me close

'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
I need a girl like you

Maybe it's 6:45
Maybe I'm barely alive
Maybe you've taken my sh-t for the last time, yeah
Maybe I know that I'm drunk
Maybe I know you're the one
Maybe you thinking it's better if you drive

[Cardi B]
Not too long ago, I was dancing for dollars (eeoow)
Know it's really real if I let you meet my mama (eeoow)
You don't want a girl like me, I'm too crazy
But every other girl you meet is fugazi (okurrrt)
I'm sure them other girls were nice enough
But you need someone to spice it up
So who you gonna call? Cardi, Cardi
Come and rev it up like a Harley, Harley
Why is the best fruit always forbidden?
I'm coming to you now doin' 20 over the limit
The red light, red light stop, stop (skrrt)
I don't play when it comes to my heart, let's get it though
I don't really want a white horse and a carriage
I'm thinkin' more a white Porsche and some karats
I need you right here 'cause every time you fall

I play with this kitty like you play wit' your guitar (ah)

'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah...
'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you
