Put your life on the table, stick your money on the line
Create the situation there, one more time
Your name, it means nothing
And the dreams that we live

And now you don't care if she is the girl from next door
She's never been known for nothing, but a motor street whore
You don't believe nothin' that you can't see
And you see me as nothing, to me, yeah, yeah

Take what you want
Take what you want
Take what you want
But just don't take it away

You can stay if you want
Stay if you want
Stay if you want
But just don't stay all day
'Cause you know it means nothing to me

Don't see much sense in lying here with you
The sex is over now, what is there left to do
Conversation, conversation, baby, I don't talk that much

And now I don't know when I'm gonna see you again
I'm leaving tomorrow and this will all start again
I hope you don't believe that you was a failure
And you see it means nothin' to be a man

Take what you want
Take what you want
Take what you want
But just don't take it away

Yeah, you can stay if you want
Stay if you want
Stay if you want
But just don't stay all day
'Cause you know it means nothing to me

You can take what you want
Take what you want
Take what you want
But just don't take it away

Yeah, you can stay if you want
Stay if you want
Stay if you want
But just don't stay all day
'Cause you know it means nothing to me

Yeah, you know it means nothing
Yeah, you know it means nothing to me
