"See You Sometime" as written by and Joni Mitchell....
Where are you now
Are you in some hotel room
Does it have a view?
Are you caught in a crowd
Or holding some honey
Who came on to you?
Why do you have to be so jive
O.K. hang up the phone
It hurts
But something survives
Though it's undermined
I'd still like to see you sometime

I'm feeling so good
And my friends all tell me
That I'm looking fine
I run in the woods
I spring from the boulders
Like a mama lion
I'm not ready to
Change my name again
But you know I'm not after
A piece of your fortune
And your fame
'Cause I tasted mine
I'd just like to see you sometime

Pack your suspenders
I'll come meet your plane
No need to surrender
I just wanna see you again

We're in for more rain
I could sure use some sunshine on my apple trees
It seems such a shame
We start out so kind and end so heartlessly
I couldn't take them all on then
With a headful of questions and hypes
So when the hopes got so slim
I just resigned
But I'd still like to see you sometime
I would sure like to see you

    General Commentthis song and the whole album 'For the rosses" isjust unbeleiveable good. if she had a dick she'd have been ten times more popular than dylan. shes just so lovely-ly ahead of her time. this, much under acknowledged, album was like man on the moon when it came out people were like "how the fuck did she come up with that?" im still asking.

    General CommentThe range of emotion she expresses in this song is just amazing. Anger, sorrow, lonelyness- but also strength and maybe even hope.

    Meaning-wise it's pretty obvious: adjusting to a new kind of relationship with an ex-lover. She's looking back at what they had, full of mixed emotions because she still has feelings for him, but the wounds from the break up are still fresh.

    Joni Mitchell's songs capture me because they manage to be so personal, and yet so universal. Just listening to her sing this song, you know she's writing about something that really has meaning to her, but she leaves things vague enough that you can fit your own experiences to the lyrics, and it becomes just as meaningful to you.

    General CommentI absolutely agree... I was absorbed with Blue and ladies of the canyon (both great albums) but when I heard for the roses... wow.
    This song means a lot to me, I've been there. It's full of contradictions and fear, even though she is trying to say she's better, there's something hurt and fragile- I love it!
