''This Love'' was influenced by Stevie Wonder. I wrote the song the day my girlfriend moved away after we broke up.'' Adam Levine
"This song was just written in the most emotionally trying time in my life. I was in a relationship that was ending, but I was really excited on the other hand because the band was about to go make the record and I was ecstatic to go in the studio. She was literally leaving town within days of me writing the lyrics to 'This Love,' so I was in prime emotional condition to write a song with that kind of conflict." - Adam Levine
"Lyrics such as ''Keep her coming every night" and "Sinking my fingertips into every inch of you", that's sexual. I was so sick of typical lyrics like 'Ooh, baby' and 'I love you' and all this vague shit. I thought the more explicit I got without being totally explicit was a nice approach. The little girls would enjoy them, and it would go right over my grandparents' heads. But it would hit my ex-girlfriend like a ton of bricks. It was perfect." - Adam Levine
