"Figure It Out" as written by Tom Higgenson and Mike Daly....
She says, I don't take her seriously
And I don't, so I guess I'd have to agree
I didn't mean that
I really mean that
I know, she gets mad at me all the time
But that's fine, I don't let it ruin my night
I didn't mean that
I really mean that

I watch what I say
Say what I should
Something you said I misunderstood
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out
I could get there if I would just move
I like what I have and love what I lose
Figure it out as soon as I figure it out
Yeah

She says, one more time and she's out the door
Yeah yeah, haven't I heard that one before?
I didn't mean that
I really mean that
Come on, I wish she would cut me some slack
It's her fault, she's the one who keeps coming back
I didn't mean that
I really mean that

I watch what I say
Say what I should
Something you said I misunderstood
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out
I could get there if I would just move
I like what I have and love what I lose
Figure it out as soon as I figure it out

All my days are all the same
I should mind but all my time's spent wasting time on her

Watch what I say
Say what I should
Something you said I misunderstood
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out
I could get there if I would just move
I like what I have and love what I lose
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out

I'll figure it out
Figure it out
I'll figure it out
Figure it out

    General CommentWow no comments?? This is one of my favorite songs on the new record!!

    Obvious what it's about-girl yells at guy, guy ignores her/tells her how he doesn't care, girl just gets more pissed.

    General CommentAlso one of my favorites...

    The guy keeps saying the wrong thing-- he apologizes, the girl forgives him, but then he messes up again.

    He's trying to do everything how she wants, but sooner or later he says the wrong thing again (watch what I say, say what I should, something you said I misunderstood).

    General Commenti love this song. my shot at what it means would be basically the guy keeps screwing up and after she's accused him of messing up so much, he just starts to not care anymore, and he's kind of bitter but also kind of confused as to what he wants- "i'll figure it out as soon as i figure it out." like, she'll figure it out as soon i figure out why she keeps doing this to him.

    General Commentand "it" in that sense would be referring to what he wants to do about it.

    General CommentAwesome song! It's pretty much about a guy getting annoyed/aggrivated with a chick who likes to argue? It's pretty obv.
    Anyways, I'm seeing these guys w/FOB,GymClassHeroes,&CuteIsWhatWeAimFor
