"Push" as written by Nicholas Jerry Jonas, Chase Forrester Foster,, Daniella Carina Mason, Paul Edwin Shelton and Christopher Alan Young....
Hold me down under the water
You know well that I can't swim
I'm not trying to be a martyr
Know that I'm gonna let you in
Safe and warm inside myself
You mean more than someone else

You need space you need time
You take yours and I'll take mine, come closer
So I can be the one to push
It's not me it's just you
It's doesn't mean shit when it falls through
Come closer
So I can be the one to push you
The one to push

Hold me tight enough to keep me
Bite my tongue so I can't speak
Clip my wings to I can't fly
Bury me deep, but I won't die, was it worth it?
Was it worth it?

You need space you need time
You take yours and I'll take mine
Come closer (closer)
So I can be the one to push
It's not me it's just you
It's doesn't mean shit when it falls through
Come closer (closer)
So I can be the one to push you (push you)
The one to push you (push you)

Guess I needed you enough not to notice
Guess I wanted you enough to lie
You wear so many faces, I shoulda known
But that sure was a beautiful disguise

You need space you need time
You take yours and I'll take mine
Come closer so I can be the one to push
It's not me it's just you
It's doesn't mean shit when it falls through
Come closer (closer)
So I can be the one to push you (push you)
Yeah
The one to push you (push you)
The one to push you

With our game, we could pass
We'll make love the way you touch me
Let me hold you
So you can be the one to push back

    My InterpretationI think this song is about him feeling out of control of his relationship and that his partner has all the control - she "wears the pants". She has now said she wants a break between them but he wants to be the one who has the say in their relationship.

    General CommentIt's about needing to be closer with someone so you can have your closure. That might sound weird, but it makes perfect sense to me.

    I wouldn't want to let someone go without getting to know them completely, especially if I care about them. If I don't get close to the person & I walk away from the relationship, I might be left regretting or wondering what might have been. That's why it makes sense to get close with the person before leaving them so you can understand why this person isn't the one for you, and then you can push them out of your life and mind without any regrets.

    I couldn't just get up and walk away from the guy (who I knew wasn't the one for me) because deep down, I still liked him. The more we talked and got closer, I was able to see him for what he was, and it was enough to for me to "push" him out of my life. Sometimes you need to get closer so you can see the truth & then walk away when you fully understand that the truth was just bad news. He was bad news.
