"Take It or Leave It" as written by Roman Ramirez, Eric Wilson and Bud Graugh....
She's got a knack for hurting me
Is it the words she says
The only thing that keeps me here
Are her eyes in the morning

Oh, I've packed my things a thousand times, oh-ho-oh
And I've faked believe all her lies, for the last time

The other day I drew myself a map
So I could figure out your head
The canvass dripped with my sweat, blood and tears
And she hated every thread

Oh, I've packed my things a thousand times, oh-ho-oh
And I've faked believe all her lies, for the last time

Take it or leave it
'Cause I'm really leaving
I've purchased my ticket to New York
First thing in the morning
Kissing you good morning
And whispering goodbye

Take it or leave it
'Cause I'm really leaving
I've made up my mind this time
There's no coming back for you
Oh, there's no coming back for you

Told her no purse was more important
Than the knowledge in her head
She grabbed her shit just like a baby
I couldn't believe the words she said

The only thing I ever see her read
Are those damn gossip magazines
They feed her head with all that nonsense, yeah
So she can fit in with the scene

Oh, I've packed my things a thousand times, oh-ho-oh
And I've faked believe all her lies, for the last time

Take it or leave it
'Cause I'm really leaving
I've purchased my ticket to New York
First thing in the morning
Kissing you good morning
And whispering goodbye

Take it or leave it
'Cause I'm really leaving
I've made up my mind this time
There's no coming back for you
Oh, there's no coming back for you. oh no

And I am always feeling incomplete
She smothered herself with her own beauty
And she was born and raised as daddy's princess
But her gesture is no match for an heiress
Yeah her gesture is no match for an heiress

'Cause I try to love you, try to hold on to
The feeling that makes me fall for you
Oh, the feeling that makes me fall

Take it or leave it now
Take it or leave it
'Cause I'm really leaving
I've purchased my ticket to New York
First thing in the morning
Kissing you good morning
And whispering goodbye

'Cause I try to love you, try to hold on to
The feeling that makes me fall for you, oh
That makes me fall for you

Take it or leave it
'Cause I'm really leaving
I've purchased my ticket to New York
First thing in the morning
Kissing you good morning
And whispering goodbye

'Cause I try to love you, try to hold on to
The feeling that makes me fall for you
Oh, the feeling that makes me fall
Makes me fall for you

    Lyric CorrectionAs a side note, the above lyrics aren't entirely correct. It's not 'her gesture', but 'a jester'.

    She was born and raised daddy’s princess
    But a jester is no match for an heiress
    Yeah a jester is no match for an heiress

    Song MeaningTo put it short, He's tired of her and is giving her one last chance before leaving.

    Oh, I've packed my things a thousand times, oh-ho-oh

    This means he's thought about leaving alot, packing his things to leave - Then staying.

    And I've faked believe all her lies, for the last time

    This part means he has been pretending to believe lies to make her happy, and no longer will he.

    The other day I drew myself a map
    So I could figure out your head

    This means she gives off mixed signals, reacts easily, and is hard to understand, He's trying to understand her but it's impossiable.

    The canvass dripped with my sweat, blood and tears
    And she hated every thread

    This part is saying even when he works hard and trys, crys, bleeds, and sweats she hates it. She hates it despite his effort.

    The first verse tells about the problem.

    Take it or leave it

    Means he's giving her a chance. Take him or leave him.

    I've purchases my ticket to newyork means he's already about to go. It's almost to late. Take or leave?

    Hopefully this helps, PM me if you'd like a further explanation.

    General CommentAside from stating the obvious, the song is about a guy sick of being played by a girl that he loves and he's *finally* putting his foot down and giving her that one last chance before he moves on.
