Maroon 5 – Payphone Lyrics


You pyonged “Maroon 5 – Payphone”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change, I spent on you
Where have the times gone
Baby, it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two

[Verse 1: Adam Levine]
Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember
The people we used to be

It's even harder to picture
That you're not here next to me

You say it's too late to make it
But is it too late to try?

And in that time that you wasted
All of our bridges burnt down

I've wasted my nights
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed
Still stuck in that time when we called it love

But even the sun sets in paradise

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone? Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairytales are full of shit
One more fucking love song, I'll be sick

[Verse 2: Adam Levine]
You turned your back on tomorrow
Cause you forgot yesterday

I gave you my love to borrow
But you just gave it away

You can't expect me to be fine
I don't expect you to care
I know I said it before
But all of our bridges burnt down



[Hook Outro]
Now, I'm at a payphone

[Verse 3: Wiz Khalifa]
Man, fuck that shit
I'll be out spending all this money
While you sitting around wondering
Why it wasn't you who came up from nothing

Made it from the bottom
Now when you see me I'm stuntin'

And all of my cars start with the push of a button
Telling me I changed since I blew up or whatever you call it
Switched the number to my phone so you never could call it
Don't need my name on my shirt, you can tell that I'm ballin'
Swish, what a shame, coulda got picked
Had a really good game but you missed your last shot
So you talk about who you see at the top
Or what you could've saw

But sad to say it's over for
Phantom pull up, valet open doors
Wiz like go away, got what you was looking for
Now it's me who they want
So you can go take that little piece of shit with you


[Hook Outro]
