Song of the Day #2,452: ‘Not Coming Home’ – Maroon 5

maroon_5_songs_about_janeThe Random iTunes Fairy does like to repeat herself on occasion, and this week she’s following up last weekend’s Maroon 5 post with another cut from the band’s debut album, Songs About Jane.

My remarks from last week remain true seven days later… this album represents the best work Maroon 5 has done to date and I wish they’d return to this sound.

Today’s song is interesting in that it’s a live performance on a studio album. That’s a practice you run into once in awhile with generally good results.

[Verse 1]
When you refuse me
You confuse me
What makes you think I’ll let you in again
Think again my friend
Go on misuse me and abuse me
I’ll come out stronger in the end

[Chorus]
And does it make you sad
To find yourself alone
And does it make you mad
To find that I have grown
I’ll bet it hurts so bad
To see the strength that I have shown

[Verse 2]
When you answer the door pick up the phone
You won’t find me cause I’m not coming home

You do not know how much this hurts me
To say these things that I don’t want to say
But have to say them anyway
I would do anything to end your suffering
But you would rather walk away

[Chorus][x2]
And does it make you sad
To find yourself alone
And does it make you mad
To find that I have grown
I’ll bet it hurts so bad
To see the strength that I have shown

[Outro] [x3]
When you answer the door pick up the phone
You won’t find me cause I’m not coming home

    Quite the rowdy crowd there for the debut album. This really shows how strong of a live band Maroon 5 is.
