"See You" as written by and David Eric/smear Grohl....
These notes are marked return to sender
I'll save this letter for myself
I wish you only knew how good it is to see you
See you, see you, ooh, ooh

These steps I take don't get me anywhere
I'm gettin' further from myself
One thins is always true, how good it is to see you
See you, see you, ooh, ooh
I'm done resenting you, you represented me so well
And this I promise you

How could I end up in this hands of someone else?
These notes are marked return to sender
I'll save this letter for myself
I wish you only knew how good it is to see you
See you, see you, ooh, ooh

These steps I take don't get me anywhere
I'm gettin' further from myself
One thins is always true, how good it is to see you
See you, see you, ooh, ooh

    General Commentthis song is definetly about when someone breaks up with you, but you still really like them. They don't feel the same way about you but it still makes you feel good to see them "I wish you only knew how good it is to see you"

    "These steps I take don't get me anywhere I'm getting further from
    myself" - line means: you are trying to get the person to like you in 'that way' again, it doesnt work, in doing this you don't act like yourself

    "I'm done resenting you you represented me so well" - 'resenting you' the 'you' is not a person its the fact that the person broke up with you, and the 'you represented me so well' you thought you were so great together

    General CommentYeah, it's definitely a break-up or something along the lines of a falling out with someone.

    To me it's always been a story like: He wrote a letter telling her how he feels, poured himself into it, and in the sent it to her. She doesn't bother to read it and sent it right back to him, hence the "marked Return to Sender" line... because when you get a letter you don't want, you don't even open it and just put it back in the box and write "RETURN TO SENDER" on it.

    I love this song because he's like "ok, you don't give a shit about me, but I'm still filled with such an amazing feeling when I see you and we had something amazing together, so I'm letting go of my hurt over your actions/inaction, and just embracing that feeling when it comes and goes. I just wish you knew about it."

    Very upbeat song about getting over someone, I think. Or trying to in good faith. :p

    General CommentI adore this song. It's a funnier, more light-hearted look at a bad breakup. The Colour and the Shape is just a phenomenal album.

    General CommentI think this is about that he got into an argument with his girlfriend and, maybe she doesn't want to hear from him, but he still feels happy when he sees her. Maybe the argument was about him eyeing up someone else, and he's just trying to convince her that she's the one for him, or something.

    General CommentFavorite FF song of all time. Except for Acoustic/Extended Everlong.
    I never thought of this as break-up song but I like plastic-man's take on it.
