"Take It Or Leave It" as written by and Scott West Reitherman....
I met a girl that met a boy long before me,
But we fell deep, God how those two weeks were glory!
Now I sit here, graceless,
And watch the coffee cup regret that I poured this,

See I get nerves when I sense mutilation,
I do my math with a cold amount of reason,
As the Cars sang "Teen things",
And bound around, so equipped with a feeling,

Don't you understand?
Don't you understand when I say "So Sonya,
Take it or leave it,"
So Sonya, Take it or leave it.

I get sad around a lack of motivation,
I cannot change the way that distance rearranged us,
And it tears my heart out,
To out-heart a girl who's got my number,

My friends support what I completely believe in,
We invest hope in what your boyfriend disagrees with,
But we can't unfate this,
So can we unbelieve that fate moves the pieces?

Don't you understand?
Don't you understand when I say, "So Sonya,
Take it or leave it."
So Sonya,
Take it or leave it.

    General CommentObviously this is a song about a quick and ill-fated relationship. The guy realizes that he cares more for this girl than she does him and is truly sad about that. There is another obstacle involving distance, a separation of whatever form. Eventually the whole situation comes to a head when he says "take it or leave it", and she leaves. He is ultimately regretful but understands that fate decided what happened and it can't be undone. It's a depressing song but also extremely beautiful.

    "But we can't unfate this,
    So can we unbelieve that fate moves the pieces?"

    I absolutely adore that line
