Maroon 5’s “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” Lyrics Have An Interesting Meaning That Might Actually Surprise You

On May 19, Maroon 5 debuted their latest new single, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt," on the The Voice to commemorate the show's eighth season coming to a close. As is the case with all Maroon 5 songs, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" is catchy as hell but it's also a wee bit stranger than their usual songs. So what is Maroon 5's "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" about? Let's take a look.

"This Summer's Gonna Hurt" tells the classic tale of a boy who is captivated by a beguiling, beautiful young woman he sees partying and gallavanting around town. He is entranced by her, absolutely enthralled by her beauty. But, at the same time, he realizes that she is a superficial girl who is only concerned with the material things in life. Much to his chagrin, she's also not very intelligent and this becomes a problem for the protagonist of our littler story here. He knows he has no future with her but he can't resist her. What's a guy to do?

She's a Party Girl with a Bad Habit...

He wants to resist her and he knows staying away from her is in his best interest. She cares too much about material things and she's frivilous with her money to the point of recklessness. She parties endlessly and make bad decisions and yet... he still can't get her out of his mind as he drifts off to sleep at night.

... A Bad Habit for Drugs

Her body is hot but her mind is not and that's never a good like. Though her diamonds could rip you to shreds, her witty banter could not. But at least she's hot. She seems as if she's doing drugs and it's inhibiting her already limited brain function. Did I mention that she's hot?

No Love Lost Here

She's a carefree spirit and likes to party but sometimes that comes off as desperate. He's grown to have a distaste for her because he can see the unappealing side of her lifestyle. But he still will text her when he's had a few too many bears. He'll occasionally even cave and stalk her on Twitter but she never has anything of consequence to say. *sigh*

The Chorus

This summer's gonna be a tough one for him 'cause even though he knows that she's bad for him... she's also hot. And you know what that means.
