#TBT: ‘N Sync Lyrics To Describe Romances In Our 20s

Here are our favorite throwback ‘N Sync hits to describe our adult relationships …because there’s really nothing ‘adult’ about them. And because, who better to sing the songs of love than this timeless boy band? We’ll let Justin, JC, Lance, Chris and Joey do the talking.

We finally feel settled into our apartments and are ready to hit the dating circuit.

Song: ‘Here We Go’

Lyric: “Here we go one more time/Everybody’s feeling fine/Here we go now”


We've got our swaggers on.

Song: ‘Just Got Paid’

Lyric: “Just got paid, Friday night/Party hoppin’, feelin right/Booties shakin’, all around/Pump that jam, while I’m gettin’ down”


He's got us with the charm…

Song: ‘God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You’

Lyric: “Your love is like a river/Peaceful and deep/Your soul is like a secret/That I never could keep/When I look into your eyes/I know that it’s true/God must have spent…A little more time…On you…(A little more time, yes he did baby)”


And after a few more drinks…

Song: ‘Up Against the Wall’

Lyric: “She took my hand/We never said a word at all/She starting grinding/Shorty had me up against the wall”


We exchange numbers, and when we recall the night to our friends, it's like:

Song: ‘Space Cowboy’

Lyric: “If you wanna fly, come and take a ride/Take a space ride with the cowboy, baby/Why-yi-yi-yippie-yi-yay-yippie-yi-yo-yippie-yi-yay/Why-yi-yi-yippie-yi-yay-yippie-yi-yo-yippie-yi-yo”


We flirt back and forth via text.

Song: ‘Digital Get Down’

Lyric: “Digital digital get down just you and me”


After a couple of dates, we finally get it on …Woohoo!

Song: ‘Pop’

Lyric: “Do you ever wonder why/This music gets you high?/It takes you on a ride/Feel it when your body starts to rock/Baby you can’t stop/And the music’s all you got/Come on now/This must be, pop


We try to play it cool, like we're not all that into it…

Song: ‘No Strings Attached’

Lyric: “And I know that you’ve hurt in the past/But if you want it, here’s my heart/No strings attached”


But, we really, actually, just want to be with you.

Song: ‘Its Gonna Be Me’

Lyrics: “Baby, when you finally/Get to love somebody/Guess what/It’s gonna be me!”


So, we finally make it official!

Song: ‘Girlfriend’

Lyric: “Won’t you be my girlfriend/I’ll treat you good /I know you hear your friends when they say you should ‘Cause if you were my girlfriend /I’d be your shining star /The one to show you where you are /Girl you should be my girlfriend”


When we're together, we're so happy.

Song: ‘This I Promise You’

Lyrics: “And I will take/You in my arms/And hold you right where you belong/Till the day my life is through/This I promise you”


A couple of months pass, a few arguments go down, and slowly we have the urge to be single again.

Song: ‘Tearin' Up My Heart’

Lyric: “It’s tearin’ up my heart when I’m with you /But when we are apart, I feel it too/And no matter what I do, I feel the pain/with or without you”


But, he can't let us go, and he's even pretty convincing.

Song: ‘It Makes Me Ill’

Lyric: “It makes me ill/To see you give/Love and attention at his will/And you can’t imagine how it makes me feel/To see you with him”


After we break up, he harasses us at the bar, and replays the whole thing to our friends…

Song: ‘I Want You Back’

Lyric: “You’re all I ever wanted/You’re all I ever needed, yeah/So tell me what to do now/When I want you back”


Sorry, babe, but time's up.

Song: ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’

Lyric: “I know that I can’t take no more/It ain’t no lie/I wanna see you out that door/Baby, bye, bye, bye…”

…and we’re ready to repeat the chorus all over again.
