Matchbox Twenty – Push lyrics

She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough
I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
And I don't know if I've ever really been loved
By the hand that's touched me, well I feel like something gonna give
And I'm a little bit angry, well

This aint over, no not here, not while I still need you
Around
You don't owe me, we might change
Yeah we just might feel good
[Chorus:]
I wanna push you around, I will, I will
I wanna push you down, I will, I will
I wanna take you for granted(2x)
I will

She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me
Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is
Gonna hurt ya
And I don't why you couldn't just stay with me
You couldn't stand to be near me
When my face don't seem to want to shine cuz it's a little bit dirty well

Don't just stand there, say nice things to me
I've been cheated I've been wronged, and you
You don't know me, I can't change
I wont do anything at all
[Chorus:]
Oh but don't bowl me over
Just wait a minute well it kinda fell apart, things get so
Crazy, crazy
Don't rush this baby(2x)
[Chorus:]

    It's all in the lyrics. It's pretty clear that the song is someone retelling what an emotionally abusive girlfriend said to them at some point in the past. Many of the lyrics might even be things Robb Thomas' horrible ex (who inspired the song) actually said to him.
    But it also is pretty direct at explaining that girlfriend's point of view. As in, she's been wronged and hurt before, and she's terrified of losing the singer but doesn't know what to do except try to hold on to them with guilt and force rather than love. Of course, that kind of approach just hurts the both of them even more.
