"Back 2 Good" as written by Rob Thomas and Matthew Serletic....
It's nothing, it's so normal
You just stand there I could say so much
But I don't go there cuz I don't want to
I was thinking if you were lonely
Maybe we could leave here and no one would know
At least not to the point that we would think so

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about
Somebody else
It's best if we all keep it under our heads
I couldn't tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do
But I'm lonely now, and I don't know how
To get it back to good

This don't mean that, you own me
This ain't no good, in fact it's phony as hell
But things worked out just like you wanted too
If you see me out you don't know me
Try to turn your head, try to give me some room
To figure out just what I'm going to do

And everyone here, hates everyone here for doing
Just like they do
It's best if we all keep this quiet instead
And I couldn't tell, why everyone here was doing me like
They do
But I'm sorry now, and I don't know how
To get it back to good

Everyone here, is wondering what it's like to be with
Somebody else
Everyone here's to blame, everyone here
Gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain, everyone hides
Shades of shame, but looking inside we're the same
We're the same
And we're all grown now, but we don't know how
To get it back to good

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking 'bout
Somebody else
It's best if we all keep this under our heads
I couldn't tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do
But it's over now, and I don't know how, it's over now
There's no getting back to good

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me right now 'cause it speaks to me about something I'm going through, but not in the same way as it seems to speak to the rest of you. That's the beauty of music, that a single song can mean so many things to so many people.

    Anyway, to me it's about not being able to be with the person you want to be with, because they're really thinking about somebody else they'd rather be with, and that really everyone does that, thus the part about hating everyone for doing just like they (you) do. It's almost cyclical. Everyone's thinking about being with somebody else, but that person is in turn doing the same thing, and it hurts, but can you really blame them? You want to yet at the same time you're doing it to the person you're with. In the end no one's happy, and that's why they invented the blues lol. As the Beetles said, "obladi oblada life goes on..."
