"If You Leave" as written by Paul Humphreys, Andrew Mccluskey and Martin Handsley Cooper....
If you leave don't leave now please don't take my heart away
Promise me just one more night then we'll go our separate ways
We always had time on our side now it's fading fast
Every second every moment we've got to,
we've got to make it last

I touch you once I touch you twice I won't let got at any price
I need you now like I need you then you always said we'd still be friends
someday.

If you leave I won't cry I won't waste one single day
But if you leave don't look back I'll run the other way
Seven years went under the bridge like time was standing still
Heaven knows what happens now you've got to
You've got to say you will

I touch you once I touch you twice I won't let got at any price
I need you now like I need you then you always said we'd meet again

I touch you once I touch you twice I won't let got at any price
I need you now like I need you then you always said we'd still be friends

I touch you once I touch you twice I won't let got at any price

    General Commentbubblez and clairebaby..you 2 totally have the right idea. this song fits sooo well w/ the scene of anna leaving but it has been said that she might come back in like th 4th season or the end of the 3rd...something like that. nothing to do w/ the song...anyways i haven't heard any other songs from nada surf but this song is so addicting and well played i just might start
