If you caught the season premiere of American Horror Story:Asylum this past Wednesday then you already know that Adam Levine's character Leo suffered a bloody fate. After watching the scenes with the Lovers play out, it's a little difficult to hear a Maroon 5 song without thinking about that grisly image. After a conversation on Twitter brought up how funny it is to hear 'Harder to Breathe' right now in the wake of the events on Asylum ("is there anyone out there cuz it's getting harder and harder to breathe"), we thought there's probably other Maroon 5 lyrics you can pluck right out of their poppy context and view them in a manner that's far more sinister. Here we have five Maroon 5 songs with lyrics that can now have double meaning thanks to the delightfully warped minds of Ryan Murphy and the writers of American Horror Story:Asylum.
'Makes Me Wonder'
The way it felt between your thighs
Pleasure that made you cry
Feels so good to be bad
Not worth the aftermath
'Wake Up Call'
Cause you both deserve
What is coming now
So don’t say a word
And your lovers screaming loudly
Hear a sound and hit the ground
I'm so sorry darling
Did I do the wrong thing?
Oh, what was I thinking?
Is his heart still beating?
Sometimes these cuts are so much deeper than they seem.
I am in misery
There ain't nobody who can comfort me
Why won't you answer me
The silence is slowly killing me
'Won't Go Home Without You'
It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't be satisfied 'till I'm under your skin
