You set me aside for some time
I kinda wanted to know
And that's fine if you had someone else
But first let me go
I gave you a chance to make it right
It's not like you cared that it's wrong
But when I'm out of state and mind
All the lines get erased and redrawn

Take what you want
(take what you want)
Take what you need
(take what you need)
But don't come running back to California
So you can take away from me

Sunshine state kissed you good
And treated you well
But while you enter paradise
I lost my mind under your spell
I must be the blindest man in sight
Or have some pretty low self-esteem
'cause if I want you back after what you did
Something must be wrong with me

Take what you want
(take what you want)
Take what you need
(take what you need)
But don't come running back to California
So you can take away from me

You think things will get better
I hope I'll finally forget her
No good for me
When I'm done
You're all I see, oh
And if you ever come running
My back will be turning
My eyes will be closed
And mouth will be torn
And I'll have to ask you to leave, go

3x
Take what you want
(take what you want)
Take what you need
(take what you need)
But don't come running back to California
So you can take away from me
Take what you want
(take what you want)
Take what you need
(take what you need)
But don't come running back to California
So you can take away from me
