If finders were keepers, I’d still be at home
Take it or leave it, I'll show you the ropes
When you no longer see me I’ll be gone
So much for answers, I don’t have a clue
I can hear ya, you’re calling from outside my room
You’re still locked inside me, holding on

So I take what i can get
So I take what i can get
I’ll break out your windows, I don’t need a key
Show me your doubts and I’ll make you believe
Yeah, you’re still here to haunt me
You ain’t gone
So I take what I can get
So I take what I can get

If you are coming home
I’ll be out on my own
I don’t need you
To give me back the open wounds
But if you start to shed your skin
Naked heart — wearing thin
When you call
I’ll be here, once again

    My InterpretationFrom what I understand, Matt's writing about from the point of view of a person who's been seeing spending time with someone for a while. They feel they're being used almost and have no hope of being anything other than just an every once in a while thing. When it's convenient for the other person. He's come to terms with the situation and will take whatever he can get.

    Been there before... not a cool situation. This song captures those emotions perfectly.
