Question about English (US)

"Argue" Can it only be used to refer to "discuss" or "fight"? Can it not be used to refer to "explain".
What I mean is, in Spanish "argumentar" means to give or to defend your opinion against the other's opinion without being rude or impolite. Actually, it means to explain in a very polite way.

But I've seen that in English they usually use it to mean that they're "fighting".

If I say, "If you can argue your reason to go out, I will let you go" or "If you can give me a very good argument, I will let you go", would it sound weird?
