    Maroon 5

    Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originates from Los Angeles, California. The group

    was originally formed in 1994 as Karas Flowers while they were still attending high school.

    With a line-up of Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, they

    signed to Reprise Records and released an album, The Fourth World, in 1997. After a tepid

    response to the album, the band parted with their record label and attended college. In 2001, the

    band regrouped and added James Valentine to the lineup, and pursued a new direction under the

    name Maroon 5.

    Adam Levine has stated: Everything thats written and performed and put together pretty much

    comes from us. I just think people would be surprised to know that were a self-contained unit.

    Were a band that does their own thing. Theres no puppet master.

    However, in an article about the songwriter and producer Benny Blanco, subtitled Benny

    Blanco, Hit Maker for Rihanna and Maroon 5, it is revealed that at least some of Maroon 5s

    songs, such as Moves Like Jagger, are the product of efforts by, or collaborations with,

    professional songwriters and producers. In the same article, Adam Levine is quoted as saying:

    Its almost as if Benny Blanco has the Midas touch in putting the right people together at the

    right time to create a musical moment. Hes about the collaboration. And hes so good at nailing

    down who does everything best.

  • Maroon 5 Makes Me Wonder

    I wake up with blood-shot eyes

    Struggled to memorize

    The way it felt between your thighs

    Pleasure that made you cry

    Feels so good to be bad

    Not worth the aftermath, after that

    After that

    Try to get you back

    [Bridge]

    I still dont have the reason

    And you dont have the time

    And it really makes me wonder

    If I ever gave a fuck about you

    [Chorus]

    Give me something to believe in

    Cause I dont believe in you anymore

    Anymore

    I wonder if it even makes a difference to try

    (Yeah)

    So this is goodbye

    [Verse]

    God damn my spinning head

    Decisions that made my bed

    Now I must lay in it

    And deal with things Ive left unsaid

    I want to dive into you

    Forget what youre going through

    I get behind, make your move

    Forget about the truth

    [Bridge]

    I still dont have the reason

    And you dont have the time

    And it really makes me wonder

    If I ever gave a fuck about you

    [Chorus]

    Give me something to believe in

    Cause I dont believe in you anymore

    Anymore

    I wonder if it even makes a difference,

  • It even makes a difference to try

    And you told me how youre feeling

    But I dont believe its true anymore

    Anymore

    I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry

    (Oh no)

    So this is goodbye

    [Breakdown]

    Ive been here before

    One day Ill wake up

    And it wont hurt anymore

    You caught me in a lie

    I have no alibi

    The words you say dont have a meaning

    Cause

    [Bridge]

    I still dont have the reason

    And you dont have the time

    And it really makes me wonder

    If I ever gave a fuck about you

    And Iand so this is goodbye

    [Chorus]

    Give me something to believe in

    Cause I dont believe in you anymore

    Anymore

    I wonder if it even makes a difference,

    It even makes a difference to try

    And you told me how youre feeling

    But I dont believe its true anymore

    Anymore

    I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry

    (Oh no)

    So this is goodbye

    So this is goodbye, yeah [x3]

    (Oh no)
