"Argue" as written by and Rob Thomas....
She don't, but she will
He says anything to keep her by him
She takes, what she gets, and she never did flinch
So over, and over, anyone
With any mind would think that's all she gets

If you want you can get to know me well
We get along so we shouldn't argue
And I don't know, said I don't know, no
All these feelings, cloud up my reasoning
They cloud up my reasoning

I know, but I still
Believe in ignorance as my best defense
So go on, wreck me
Funny how I carry on, and not be taken over
Will not roll over on anyone,
'Cause anyone would stand up on my side

If you want you can get to know me well
We get along so we shouldn't argue
And I don't know, said I don't know no
All these feelings, cloud up my reasoning
Yeah they cloud up my reasoning

You know it's funny how sometimes
It don't work out like you want to
No you never get nothing at all
Then she tells you that it's over
Boy don't you hate it when it's over
I guess something just got lost, and it deeply saddens me
So over, and over anyone, yeah anyone

If you want you can get to know me well
We get along so we shouldn't argue
And I don't know, said I don't know no
All these feelings, cloud up my reasoning
We get along so we shouldn't argue
We get along so we shouldn't argue
We shouldn't argue, yeah

    General CommentI love some key lines in this song. "I know, but I still
    Believe in ignorance as my best defense" and "We get along so we shouldn't argue"

    General CommentThis song is a great one. Matchbox twenty's debut CD is great, I love almost every song on it.

    General CommentThis song for some reason didn't hit me until I got out of a certain relationship. Anyway...

    Starting when they meet each other they are getting along. But as the relationship is progressing he starts to notice she is using him to get what she wants. But all of his feelings cover his judgement to leave her before she tries to hurt him more. So he just takes it without a second thought. She decides it doesn't work out (guessing after he stops giving her what she wants) and he doesn't care for it much. But when it was all over his friends were on his side all along.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourites, expresses the sadness of the end of a relationship that didn't do us any good, but still was important to us...maybe inside we thought it was the right person, so it does hurt.You must have spent great times with her/him so you did get along and you still recall those moments and it's hard to end if for good. And it must be about abuse as well...the woman taking advantage of his weakness.
    I love some lines in here...my favourite, the one I love is "So go on, wreck me, funny how I carry on and not be taken..over"...it remains me that no matter how bad this guy hurts me...I will be fine in the end, and I will know how to handle it...(hopefully).

    General CommentSame here, Gabigs.

    "So go on, wreck me
    Funny how I carry on, and not be taken over..."

    It's like he's trying to show her that he's fine on his own, and I like that, because it's the way I am. He's trying to prove her wrong, I guess.

    GREAT song. One thing about Rob Thomas is that he can write a song that barely rhymes at all, and somehow it just works. He's awesome.

    General CommentThis was the first cd I bought. The good ole days. As for the lyrics, they're pretty self explanatory.
