(Leave it, leave it take it, Was that yours? Take it was that yours take it was that yours?) x4

I don't really know if she cares or not
All I know's she left a lot
Of stuff in my apartment
And she's never gettin' it back
'Cause her smell on the pillow fades
Her cigarettes last late
Like a Roman coliseum
A drying, worthless monument to our love

(Chorus)
Ooh I still have your lighter
Ooh I still have your book
Ooh I still have everything you brought but you never took
And you know where to find me
And I know where to look
(I'm not a crook)

(Leave it, leave it take it, Was that yours? Take it was that yours take it was that yours? x3
Leave it, leave it take it, Was that yours? Take it was that yours take it was that)

I don't really know if she knows or not
But I left some things in her jewelry box
And she's wearin' out my rings
Takin' the compliments meant for me
And I know I'll think I'll miss them
Least there's proof of my existence
Captive little soldier on her fingers
Deep behind enemy lines

(Chorus)
Ooh I still have your lighter
Ooh I still have your book
Ooh I still have everything you brought but you never took
And you know where to find me
And I know where to look
(I'm not a crook)

(Leave it, leave it take it, Was that yours? Take it was that yours take it was that yours?) x4

A copy of Gravity's Rainbow that she prob'ly didn't read
And how about my Lauren Mira records she prob'ly threw away when she moved
And how 'bout the half of box of lentils from when I cooked her food
That she prob'ly didn't use

(Spoken)
I wanna' dedicate this jam
To all those things I left behind in girls' apartments and various domiciles over the years
Sometimes you gotta' leave in a hurry man, what can I say?
Except I didn't forget about any of it... I'm takin' it all back.

(Leave it, leave it take it, Was that yours? Take it was that yours take it was that yours?) x4
