"Take It Back" as written by and Zooey Deschanel....
Take it back
Oh, take it back

I don't want your loving anymore
Let me live, oh, let me live
It's not you who I sing for

So don't sit next to me
Sit by yourself

I don't want to wonder whether you love me
I don't want to wonder whether you care

So don't try to woo me
Don't try to fool me

Oh, I know all of your tricks

It's the possibility of staying in my corner

I don't want to wonder whether you love me
I don't want to wonder whether you care

So don't try to woo me
Don't try to fool me

Oh, I know all of your tricks

It's the possibility of staying in my corner

    General CommentI love this song =]
    pretty self explanatory.
    she's just tired of being
    with a guy who doesn't
    appreciate her by not loving her
    or not caring for her.

    well that's what I think. If im wrong
    owell...its a beautiful song.

    General CommentOhhhh, I've been there. When you're with someone cold, and unloving. you need to get out of there.

    the whole situation was a first for me and in this song it seems like zooey's been there before and knows what's happening and loves them with her sentimental heart... but wants to move on, and forget.

    I don't want to wonder whether you love me..... I don't want to wonder whether you care...

    My InterpretationTo me this sounds like a situation when someone is very interested in you romantically but you are very turned off/not interested in them at all.

    It's unfortunate because you're not really giving them a chance but what can you do when you know what you want, and they aren't what you want(realistically).

    My Interpretationbeautifully tragic song. the story of being with someone who keeps you waiting. wondering. am i loved and cared for? but the second you start to question his love for you, there he goes wooing you back with the typical tricks.
