"You And I Will Meet Again" as written by and Tom Petty....
You and I will meet again
When we're least expecting it
One day in some far off place
I will recognize your face
I won't say good-bye my friend
For you and I will meet again

I heard you singing to no one
I saw you dancing all alone
One day you belonged to me
Next day I just wouldn't know
Someday all the rules will bend
And you and I will meet again

I've got a feeling
I've got a feeling so strong
Maybe someday our paths will cross

A red-winged hawk is circling
The blacktop stretches out for days
How could I get so close to you
And still feel so far away?
I hear a voice come on the wind
Sayin' you and I will meet again
I don't know how, I don't know when
But you and I will meet again

    General CommentI just started listening to this album again after about 10 years... wow, this is a great song. For some reason it reminds me of when I was a kid growing up on the farm.

    General CommentI like this song. It feels like a bittersweet goodbye, to me--knowing things can't work at the moment, but that maybe someday they will. I think it's about the moment you decide to let go and stop trying to control your entire life, and trusting that things will work themselves out.
