I've seen you watching
Her every time she crosses the floor
So just go and talk to
The One you really adore
I'm getting pretty used to being
The one you always ignore
When somebody wants you
I've seen it before

You're every kind of color
There ain't nothing that you won't claim
Your ambition and promise
And your addiction to fame
Everyone's got a dollar
Sign after their name
When somebody wants you
You treat 'em just the same

So go on and pick up
You don't care what poison you choose
What person you Lose
It should've been me, yeah
Shouldn't it be?

A crushing quiet
Crawls in through your window
From someone who wants you
But you'll never know
I'll pick up around you
& clear everything out
Leave you where i found you
I figured you out

Leave You where i found you
I figured you out

    General CommentIt's not a cover. Elliott didn't like the song because he thought is sounded too much like the Eagles, but Mary Lou liked it so he gave it to her. He wrote the song, yes, but Mary Lou's was the only studio recorded version.
