"Take A Good Look" as written by and Peter Zaremba....
Take a good look it's the last time you'll see me
Hanging around here
I spent all my money filling the tank up
Or I'd buy you a beer

Does anyone know what happened to
The better part of the last ten years
The pictures I've been packing up
All seem to have been taken right here

Take a good look its the last time you'll see me
Bumming a beer
I'd hate to think that I'm gonna get lonely
Living down there

Do any of you lovely ladies feel like drinking
A little closer to the ocean
It's getting late and I'm starting to think just maybe
I'm in no condition

Take a good look its the last time you'll see me
Asleep in my car
Laugh clown laugh at joey
He didn't get far

Does anyone know what happened to
The better part of the last ten years
The pictures I've been packing up
All seem to have been taken right here

    General CommentThis song is so good, it's a great example of how great acoustic songs can be. This song is so sad, and the vocals and guitar are able to just perfectly conveya kind of lonely feeling that this song has. It is awesome.

    My InterpretationI think the song is just about leaving the nest.
    Getting ready to leave where you grew up and move onto the next chapter in your life, and at the same time, the fear of what the next chapter holds.
    Speaking as someone who came very close to being a teenage runaway (my friends convinced me to stay at the last moment) this song hits home; the feeling of saying goobye to your closest friends, the fear of being on your own with no one to help you, looking at the pictures of being younger, this song is almost the exact feeling for when i almost left, it even brings back the memory of staring at the "welcome to Avon Lake" sign, almost terified to even step across the train tacks marking the boarder of my town.
