"Leave Me (Like You Found Me)" as written by and Jeff Tweedy....
That's when I knew you
You might be lonely too
That's what I wish for
Somebody just like you
To tell me what to do
Honestly
And leave me like you found me

Can you believe it?
I'm somebody just like you
Content with being blue
Honestly
And leave me like you found me

I sit on the couch alone
Where you sit when I'm not home
And I feel so close
To you

And down the city streets
People are climbing the trees
They're finally up off their knees
Honestly
You leave me like you found me
Can you leave me like you found me?

    General Commenti'm not sure what this says about me, or my capacity for relationships :) ...but i never really thought of this song as being about a break up, or a relationship ending. if anything, it's suggestive of a beginning or a settling in more than an ending, like the way he says, "can you believe it..." also, the part that begins, "i sit on the couch alone..." i always took to just be sort of literal, like that's how he actually feels. either way, i never saw the status of the relationship as being the focal point. this song did stick out to me more than the rest on BSB, though, because i think i found the character/the situation to be most personally relateable.
