"Back 2 Good" is a song by Matchbox Twenty, released as the fifth single from their multi-platinum debut album Yourself or Someone Like You. This song would prove to be their biggest hit song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 24 in 1998 since their more successful prior hits, Push and 3 a.m. failed to hit the Hot 100 and only peaked on the Hot 100 Airplay chart and Real World barely made the Top 40 spot on the Hot 100 at number 38. The song was not successful on the rock charts as it failed to chart on any because the song was considered too light for both rock and alternative radio stations with the song only having success on both pop and adult contemporary stations. The song was written by lead singer Rob Thomas and producer Matt Serletic, and is about a romantic relationship that seems to have reached its end, much to the chagrin of the singer. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

It`s nothing, it`s so normal you
Just stand there I could say so much
But I don`t go there `cause 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

I 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 quite 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
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
