Baby, now I really know what we're fighting for
This rematch sex is amazing
But nobody wins when if somebody’s heart is slow
Their fights, unlike regular couples' fights, are so intense as to warrant an ongoing allegory to boxing. Timberlake alters the phrase “makeup sex” to “rematch sex” to coincide with this theme…and paint some really hardcore imagery.
Even though each fight has its winner and loser, in the end all it does is serve to weaken the bond Timberlake and his lover, slowing down their hearts just like a boxer’s reaction time is slowed down over the course of so many fights.
