Hard cover books and silver frames
Because they're gone we drink your parents' bar
Three am not many cars
We go walking down the avenue doing
Anything that makes us laugh
Do it but it's a stupid thing to do

I won't argue
Let the fight do the fighting
Let the right do the righting now
I can't have you even as an enemy
Not everything is allowed

You're gonna wish that it was done
You're gonna wish that you were young again
You're gonna wish that is was fun
You're gonna want to have someone again
See what lands we have become
Flight on the horizons everyday

I won't argue
Let the fight do the fighting
Let the right do the righting now
I can't have you even as an enemy
Not everything is allowed

*French horn instrumental*

I won't argue
Let the fight do the fighting
Let the right do the righting now
I can't have you even as an enemy
Not everything is allowed

I won't argue
Let the fight do the fighting
Let the right do the righting now
I can't have you even as an enemy
Not everything is allowed

    I think it means that, even though people might fight, you should let the "fighting' do it and let the "righting" right it again instead of drawing it out and letting it consume every aspect of your life. Remember the good times with that person. Hang on to how special the bond is because one day, when its all gone, you're going to miss it. You'll have all these wonderful memories or good times and wish you had them still, rather than let a fight take everything.
