"Can't Take It" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
You speak to me and
I know this will be temporary
You ask to leave,
But I can tell you that I've had enough

I can't take it
This welcome is gone and
I've waited long enough to make it
And if you're so strong
You might as well just do it alone
And I'll watch you go

Step up to me
I know that you've got something buried
I'll set you free
You set conditions, but I've had enough

I can't take it
This welcome is gone and
I've waited long enough to make it
And if you're so strong
You might as well just do it alone
And I'll watch you go

Won't you come back home, won't you come home?
You step in line, you got a lot to prove
It comes and goes
Yeah, it comes and goes
A step in time, yeah it's a lot to move
I know this will be temporary
I know this will be temporary
I know this will be, but I've had enough

I can't take it
This welcome is gone and
I've waited long enough to make it
And if you're so strong
You might as well just do it alone
And I'll watch you go

I can't take it
This welcome is gone and
I've waited long enough to make it
And if you're so strong
You might as well just do it alone
And I'll watch you go

    General CommentBest song on the cd.

    I think this is about a relationship gone bad, or a guy tormented by a girl that he nevertheless is still attracted to... and even though she pisses him off or fucks him over, he can't permanantly get rid of her. Which is the reason for the line "I know this will be temporary".

    General CommentI always got the impression he's with a girl who has massive mood swings mayeb on like a monthly bases maybe on a day to day basis. The point it, sometimes she's up and sometimes she very down.
    and he's simply had enough of it.
    "I've waited long enough
    To make it"
    even though he knows none of the moods last forever
    "I know this will be temporary"
    "It comes and goes
    Yeah it comes and goes"
    And in spite of wantng her to go or him wnating to leave her, he tsill wants her and wants to help her
    "I know that you've got something buried"
    "Come back home
    Won't you come back home"

    General CommentAbout him loving this person so much and the other person always does something to mess up the realtionship. somehow everytime this happens he forgives her becuase he loves her. Everytime she leaves he wants her back even though she messes everything up.
