"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 CommentI have always loved this song. Takes me back to the good old days in junior high school. But as much as I've always loved it, it has never had more meaning to me than it does now:

    I tell myself that it's nothing and normal...I could see myself falling for this guy even though I could never tell him. We've hooked up and no one knows about it; at least not to my knowledge. I can assume that everyone else wonders what it's like to be with someone other than their partner, but no one would ever dare say it. Of course I can't tell what they're thinking. We've crossed the line and there's no going back to way things were before us.

    Just because we've crossed this line, it doesn't mean I'm his. As a matter of fact, what we have is fake. But we both like the way things are going. If we ever run into each other in public, we simply turn our heads while in our minds try to figure things out. When we hear about these stories, we hate the people for doing the very thing that we're doing. And again, it's better to keep this quiet. I'm sorry about what's happened; we probably both are...but there's no going back.

    Everyone is to blame for this mess and everyone enjoys the deeper pain that comes along with this intense pleasure. Everyone here hides behind their shame by putting on a front. Let's just put this under the radar. I'm sorry...but there's no going back.
