"Rules Don't Stop" as written by Christopher Cain and Keith Murray....
Don't be alarmed
It's not the end of the world
If we're breaking the rules it's fine
I disregard this kind of problem all the time
It's not as if it's gonna kill anyone
If there's no victim then there's no crime
Just draw another if you think we've crossed the line

Rules don't stop me
Forget about it
Rules don't stop me
We'll get around it
Rules don't stop me
Forget about it
Don't stop me, don't stop me

Although it may seem unconventional sometimes
Indiscretion is worth a try
If you just play along I promise we'll be fine
So leave your hang-ups back at the door
When you and I are down on the floor
Will you know what to do about it
You know what to do about it

Rules don't stop me
Forget about it
Rules don't stop me
We'll get around it
Rules don't stop me
Forget about it
Don't stop me, don't stop me

It's not as bad as they say
If this is such a mistake
Why does it seem to make you so damn happy?
This is no time to behave
Let's both get carried away
If there's a price to be paid
It won't stop me

Rules don't stop me
Forget about it
Rules don't stop me
We'll get around it
Rules don't stop me
Forget about it
Don't stop me, don't stop me
They don't stop me, they don't stop me

    My OpinionAwesome awesome awesome song. Can't wait for the whole album.

    I think it's about cheating in a relationship, but being the person that the cheater is with and assuring the cheater that it's acceptable to to cheat with the singer.

    General CommentI think it's about breaking rules as a child for the sake of it or flirting with low level crime and the buzz it gives.

    General Commentthis song is open to to many meanings and there will never be one meaning of this song, but personally i interpret it as this song is about drugs and doing them and getting someone to do drugs

    i think of dugs a lot cuz honestly i do, do drugs and this song gets me pumped to do more
    but thats just me

    Don't be alarmed, it's not the end of the world
    If we're breaking the rules it's fine
    I disregard this kind of problem all the time--
    its someone convincing someone else to do something thats probably illegal ex dugs :)

    It's not as if it's gonna kill anyone
    If there's no victim then there's no crime
    Just draw another if you think we've crossed the line

    Although it may seem unconventional sometimes
    Indescretion is worth a try
    If you just play along I promise we'll be fine
    So leave your hang-ups back at the door
    When you and I are down on the floor
    Will you know what to do about it?
    (Will you know what to do about it?)-- like are you ready now your convinced ?

    It's not as bad as they say
    If this is such a mistake
    Why does it make you so damn happy? --- like a high

    This is no time to behave
    Let's both get carried away-- let's do it


    If there's a price to be paid
    It won't stop me-

    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Rules don't stop me
    We'll get around it
    Rules don't stop me
    Forget about it
    Don't stop me, don't stop me-- they dont give a fuck about what other people have to say about it and its also kinda a life motto


    i know drugs are bad but rules dont stop me :)

    General CommentMy interpretation to the song maybe the speaker is pursuing a girl/boy already committed, maybe they already did somethings with said person (If you just play along I promise we'll be fine/So leave your hang-ups back at the door/When you and I are down on the floor/Will you know what to do about it?)and the said person getting caught up in the moment and maybe liking it but regretting it later.(It's not as bad as they say/If this is such a mistake/Why does it make you so damn happy?) :]
