She's going out to forget they were together
All that time he was taking her for granted
She wants to see if there's more
Than he gave she's looking for

He calls her up
He's trippin on the phone now
He doesn't want her out there
And alone now
He knows she's movin it
Knows she's using it
Now he's losing it
She don't care

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Feel the beat now
If you've got nothing left
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Back it up now
You've got a reason to live
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Feelin' good now
Don't be afraid to get down
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

He was always giving her attention
Looking hard to find the things she mentioned
He was dedicated
But most suckers hate it
That girl was fine
But she didn't appreciate him

She calls him up
She's tripping on the phone now
He had to get up
And he ain't comin home now
He's tryin to forget her
That's how we come with him
When he first met her
When they first got together

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Feel the beat now

If you got nothing left
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Back it up now
You got a reason to live
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Feelin' good now
Don't be afraid to get down
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

To the beat (x3)
You got nothing to lose
Don't be afraid to get down

We break up
It's something that we do now
Everyone has got to do it sometime
It's okay, let it go
Get out there and find someone

It's too late to be trippin' on the phone here
Get off the wire
You know everything is good here
Stop what you're doin'
You don't wanna ruin
The chance that you got to
Find a new one

Everybody put up your hands
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Feel the beat now
If you got nothing left
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Back it up now
You got a reason to live
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love
Feelin' good now
Don't be afraid to get down
Say I don't wanna be in love
I don't wanna be in love

Now you know what to do, so come on feelin' good

    Break ups happen ("it's something we do now"), we just have to learn to stop getting hung up on something that no longer matters, to find someone else.

    I think the meaning is that they feel in love and they had a fight and he is getting all angry and sings a mad song

    The song highlights the novelty period wearing off and how everything gets bitter. Breakups happen when theres no more adrenaline left (honeymoon period) in the reationship, people look to drama ie fights to re-create the adrenaline, hence the cheating...

    There are two sides of a break up, the boy's version and the girl's version. It's tough for both people and sometimes it may be the girl or guy that wants to fix the relationship. This person shouldn't try to fix the relationship though because there was obviously a problem to begin with, so both people should just move on. There's nothing wrong with going out to find someone else that may be a better match.
