Sucker - Jonas Brothers




The Experience: I'm a sucker for you...  Is it love... or is it slavery?

Music video: The visuals reinforce the dark undertone. Amidst the wealth and glam the Jonas Brothers are fascinated and trapped. They slave away for the women they're suckers for. But they're treated more like pets than anything else. For the women it's a game of seduction that ends with them firmly in control - through romance, seduction, or sadomasochism - of the men they've entrapped.

The Meaning of Sucker: The Jonas Brothers lay down a simple message. Chemistry: we go together better than birds of a feather, you and me we change the weather, yeah I'm feeling heat in December when you're 'round me. Attraction: I follow you. And head over heels in love: I'm a sucker for you. However, defining love that way highlights the darker undertones to the lyrics. They follow her in the dark. It's an addiction: can't get enough. They throw caution and better judgment to the winds: you're making the typical me break my typical rules. She's not just the medicine - she's also the pain. Those are some serious danger signals.

Ask yourself: Is your love slavery?

LYRICS:


We go together
Better than birds of a feather, you and me
We change the weather, yeah
I'm feeling heat in December when you're 'round me

I've been dancing on top of cars
And stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can't get enough
You're the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it's obvious

I'm a sucker for you
Say the word and I'll go anywhere blindly
I'm a sucker for you, yeah
Any road you take you know that you'll find me

I'm a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (about you)
About you (about you)
And you're making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It's true, I'm a sucker for you

Yeah
Don't complicate it, yeah
'Cause I know you and you know everything about me
I can't remember
All of the nights I don't remember when you're 'round me

I've been dancing on top of cars
And stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can't get enough
You're the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it's obvious

I'm a sucker for you
Say the word and I'll go anywhere blindly
I'm a sucker for you, ooh yeah
Any road you take you know that you'll find me

I'm a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (about you)
About you (about you)
And you're making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It's true, I'm a sucker for you

Yeah
(I'm a sucker for you)

I've been dancing on top of cars
And stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can't get enough
You're the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it's obvious

I'm a sucker for you
Say the word and I'll go anywhere blindly
I'm a sucker for you, ooh yeah
Any road you take you know that you'll find me

I'm a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (about you)
About you (about you)
And you're making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It's true, I'm a sucker for you
I'm a sucker for you
