"Take A Look" as written by and Phair....
I don't know what you're after
Wanna know all the details of my disaster
Like an accident on the side of the road
When you're driving past slow but there's nothing to see here

[Chorus:]
Wanna take a look, take a look [Repeat: x4]

I'm some kind of freak now and
You'll never see me the same
What's all the fuss about?
Are you sure you wanna find out?
Cause once you know the truth
You might wish you'd walked away

[Chorus]

What if I'm not able
To put my cards on the table?
And would it liberate you
If you knew what I knew?

It's been over a year now and
I never saw him again
The facts and the fiction
Collide as the bodies untangle
And the traffic moves on like it did

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI believe this song refers to a love interest that Liz had where he wanted to know all the details of her past and Liz didn't want to tell him because she was afraid she would lose him.. In turn, she never told him and lost him anyway.

    General CommentI think everyone has baggage from previous relationships that are hard to talk about and you don't neccessarily want new love's to know about. This song is saying yeah i've had problems and i don't want them to scare you away.

    General CommentI like sav127's ideas. There seems to be a problem with her new guy, because she can't really open herslef up completely. The comparison to a car crash is seen throughout the whole song, perhaps as a morbid curiosity that Liz feels is not quite healthy. In the end, she never sees him again, and she is a little bit different, possibly not even able to remember why it didn't work in the first place ("The facts and the fiction
    Collide as the bodies untangle").
