"Square Peg, Round Hole" as written by and William Michael Grubbs....
Take me with you when you go
I don't want to stay here alone
Remember when we were golden
Well that was a long time ago
You told me that you felt foolish
You stayed where you didn't belong
I don't wanna be foolish
Square peg in a round hole

You said that it was still stolen
But it just didn't beat anymore
I guess when it's done falling
It's just lying dead on the floor
Said if you wanna be foolish
Then you can go do it alone
Cause I don't wanna be foolish
Square peg in a round hole

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship that's gone stale, but continues anyway since both parties don't want to "stay here alone": they were "golden ... a long time ago", and at this point they've acknowledged that they're incompatible ("square peg in a round hole"). The "you" in the song is probably a romantic partner, and the "it" is their (singular "their") heart – they're still committed to the other party, but not with any passion. "I guess when it's done falling / It's just lying dead on the floor" takes that further: the honeymoon stage is over and the people are disillusioned with each other. One of them could leave ("do it alone"), but that would be "foolish" and too painful for them to bear.
