A/N: How do you NOT think of Rose and Herbie when you listen to that

A/N (29 Oct. 2009): Look for the link to the video on my page? FFN doesn't like direct links to YouTube videos. For some reason I can't expain. I didn't create it.

Woke up early this morning around 4am
With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake
Ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms
I've been tryin' my best to get along
But that's OK
There's nothing left to say, but

About four o'clock this morning, I woke up and the moon was shining too bright. I tried getting back to sleep, but all the thoughts of us that kept running through my head kept me away. Ever since that night when I walked in on you with the manager – that last night of the run – and you tried convincing me that it wasn't what it looked like, I've been trying my hardest to get along with my life.

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothin' left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me

I went out driving trying to clear my head
I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
I guess I'm feeling just a little tired of this
And all the baggage it seems to still exist
It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been
What we should have been
So

I went for a walk, tried to clear my head, completely clear it and start over again. I'm feeling tired of doing this, of this and everything that goes with it. It seems that the only blessing I have for myself now is not knowing what we could have, should have been.

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

Someday, I'm gonna run across your mind
But don't worry, I'll be fine
I'm gonna be alright
While you're sleeping with your pride
Wishing I could hold you tight
I'll be over you
And on with my life

One day, years from now, I'm gonna run across your mind, but don't worry about me. I'll be perfectly fine. While you're laying there, sleeping, staring up at the ceiling crying, your pride next to you, and you wish I was there with you to hold you, don't. I'll be over you and on with my life.

So take your records, take your freedom baby
Take your memories I don't need 'em anymore
And take your cat but leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a hell of a lot better
But you'll think of meWishin' I was there to hold you tight
That's when you're gonna think about me, baby
Yeah, in the middle of the night when you're layin' alone
Baby, you wish I was comin' home
But I ain't eva comin' home
You shouldn't have treated me this way
Yeah, yeah, mmm yeah, yeah
Why did you go and break my heart
Baby, didn't you know how much I loved you
Whoa Whoo
Someday, baby

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need 'em
Take your space and your stupid reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me, yeah

And you're gonna think of me
ummm yeah, whoaa yeah
Oh someday baby, someday

Hey, when you're layin' alone in the middle of the night

Why? Why did you treat me the way you did? Because you wanted June and Louise to be stars. Why did you have to go and tell the theater manager that Louise could take the star spot? You broke my heart by doing that, Rose. You should have known better, but you didn't. Didn't you know how much I loved you?

A/N: I don't think this is entirely in character for Herbie, but I heard the song and I wanted to write a songfic relating to it. I don't think it's exactly the best thing I've written, either. I hope you like it, though.
