"Take What You Want" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
Take what you want
And leave what you don't
Take what you want
And leave what you don't

I'm painting a face
The color is dripping
Magnesium moments
In black fairy tales

I live on emotion
And comic relief
I put this one on you
Run, run, run like a thief

Am I all alone?
Am I all alone?
Salamander sunrise
Comes at 4:44

Lingerie madness
Don't you kick down the door
Sweet Sarah's so wild
Don't you know why I'm losing your head

Down the dark alley
Where rumours are spread
The room is so dark
I'm catching on fire

I'm in love with your face
It's so confused by desire
Am I all alone? Am I all alone?
I'm winding it up

It's running back down
I'm winding it up
It's running back down
So take what you want

And leave what you don't
Take it
Take it
Take it

    General CommentI had never heard this song until I watched the Dvd "The Cars Live" (from Germany). Great performance - now I the studio version downloaded to listen too.
