MAD by Ne-Yo

“MAD” by Ne-Yo can help you settle a bad fight with your lover.

I was pondering on what song to feature as song of the week when MAD by Ne-Yo came up on my playlist. It’s an old song really, and I had heard it for up to 400 times before that moment. But it struck me differently as I paid special attention to its lyrics yet again. I didn’t need any further convincing that this song should feature this week.

But what really is special about MAD by Ne-Yo?

First, let me remind you that this song was released in 2008 by Ne-Yo, who has been (and to some level right now) one of the consistent male artists of his generation to produce hit after hit. The song featured in his third album “Year of The Gentleman” and it was a massive hit back then.

Just like “So Sick” and “Sexy Love” – two of Ne-Yo’s greatest hit before this, “Mad” is a R&B ballad song which kind of settles somewhere between “So Sick” and “Miss independent”. And of course, typical of Ne-Yo, its lyrics are very easy to relate with.

The song also has mild piano accompaniment and his vocals pretty much elevated the likeability of the song.

The lyrics of the song shows that it is a song about relationships, just like most of Ne-Yo’s other songs. He is pretty much comfortable with those kind of songs.

“Mad” specially talks about the not so rosy moments of relationships when lovers argue. It stresses the importance of listening to each other instead of yelling and wanting to be right by all means. The song preaches the importance of embracing logical reasoning instead of trying to shout each other down in the name of an argument.

This song comes very handy to couples and lovers who are usually having fights and arguments. Most people allow their ego do the talking and fighting, when they can appeal to logic. The song tells us that most of the fights are wrong and they end up for nothing.

A lot of people have broken off their relationships for flimsy accusations that shouldn’t break them on a normal day. But because they refused to take it easy, they lose what’s good. They only realize it’s for nothing when everything has gone to dust.

So, if you are going through a bad phase with your spouse or lover right now, I recommend MAD by Ne-Yo. Listen to it, and let the lyrics sink in. You may find reason to soft pedal and approach the issue more logically. Hopefully, you get to resolve the issue and save your beautiful relationship.

There are three basic personal messages for me in this song; 

  1. Attack the issue, not your lover.
  2. Don’t go to bed when you are still mad at your lover. Solve the issue whilst you can. (I know sleeping over certain things can help, but…
  3. Postponing issues can be dangerous. Both of you should work it out early enough.

When you listen to MAD by Ne-Yo, I hope you get these messages and more.

 

MAD by Ne-Yo Lyrics.

Oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, ummm

She’s staring at me, I’m sitting wondering what she’s thinking
Ummm nobody’s talking, ’cause talking just turns into screaming (oh,)
And now as I’m yelling over her, she yelling over me,
All that that means is neither of us are listening,
And what’s even worse, that we don’t even remember why we’re fighting

So both of us are mad for nothing (fighting for),
Nothing (crying for),
Nothing (ooh,h)

READ THIS >  D'banj to get MARRIED this year

But we won’t let it go for nothing (don’t let for),
Nothing.
It should be nothing
To a love like what we got oh, baby

I know sometimes it’s gonna rain,
But baby can we make up now
’cause I can’t sleep through the pain (can’t sleep through the pain)?
Girl I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you
And I don’t want you to go to bed mad at me
No I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you
And I don’t want you to go to bed mad at me (oh, no)

Umm
And it gets me upset girl when you’re constantly accusing
(asking questions like you already know)
We’re fighting this war, baby, when both of us are losing
(this ain’t the way that love is supposed to go. What happened to working it out?)
We fall into this place where you ain’t backing down, and I ain’t backing down,
So what the hell do we do now?

It’s all for nothing (fighting for)
Nothing (crying for),
Nothing… (ooh,h)

We won’t let it go for nothing (don’t let for),
Nothing.
It should be nothing
To a love like what we got oh, baby

I know sometimes it’s gonna rain (Oh, it’s gonna rain),
But baby can we make up now
’cause I can’t sleep through the pain (can’t sleep through the pain)?
Girl I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you
And I don’t want you to go to bed mad at me
No I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you
And I don’t want you to go to bed mad at me (oh, no)

Oh, baby this love ain’t gon’ be perfect (perfect, perfect oh, no)
And just how good it’s gonna be
We can fuss and we can fight
Long as everything is alright
Between us before we go to sleep…

Baby we’re gonna be…
Happy….
Oh, ….oh,

Baby, I know sometimes it’s gonna rain (it’s gonna rain),
But baby can we make up now (can we make up now?)
’cause I can’t sleep through the pain (can’t sleep through the pain)?
Girl I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you
And I don’t want you to go to bed mad at me
No I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you
And I don’t want you to go to bed mad at me (oh, no, no, no)
