"See You" as written by and Dave/smear Grohl....
My gut is burning. Won't you find me some water?
Hey, just forget it can you bring me gasoline
And collect a couple forks, hold them three feet apart
And wait for lightning to strike to burn me up?
Cause I don't think that I've got the stomach to
Stomach calling you today.

My head is swirling. It's been carried off in the sky
And where it lands is where is lands.
So I guess that I will get another head and then get on with my life
And leave you somewhere beneath the waves of time.

And I'll wear glass shoes and plastic wrap.
No, I'll just wear my insides.
You want to know who I really am?
Yeah so do I, yeah so do I.
Cause I don't think that I've got the stomach to
Stomach calling you today.
Right now I am turning off the lights
Cause I don't think that I've got the stomach to
Stomach calling you today.

    General CommentThis song is how almost all of us have felt when we've liked someone. His gut is burning cause he can't find the nerve and he can't do anything about it so he decides that dieing is the only way to stop it. Where he says that his head is swirling and carried off. Well he's just sayin that he keeps thinking about that person and that he's getting rid of his "head" to clear his memory. What's left of that person will be somewhere beneat the waves of time, and he'll never look back.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like he is trying to get over a ex. This song describes how I feel right now about my ex.

    General Commentpersonally, i think its about struggles in his mind trying to figure out who he is and if the person involved still has a place in his life, and if they do, what is it?(remember, folks, most of chris' songs are not about girls hes involved with, hes had one girlfriend for years, a lot of them are either about other people or not even romantic relationships at all)

    General CommentI love this song! I can relate to Chris when he says "you want to know who I really am? Yeah so do I." He's so amazing.

    General Commentthis song is basically how I feel all the time, about people and about myself. It is so amazing how Chris can play with words and get his point across. he's a genius... favorite line: "You want to know who I really am? Yeah so do I." That is sooo me.

    General CommentYeah, Chris is a great lyricist... and this song is one of the best lyrically. I'm not even gonna try to think about what this song means, because it doesn't matter what it means to me or anyone else... it just matters what it means to Chris and I'm sure none of us have asked Chris "What does 'See You' mean?" Yeah, so... great song.

    General CommentSee you is definitely my favorite Saves The Day song. I agree with emo SavestheDay and I don't really care what exactly it's about. Maybe he makes his lyrics so un-defined so that it means something to everyone. To me it reminds me of a girl. To other it might not...aah, the beauty of STD
