"Walking After You" as written by and David Grohl....
Tonight I'm tangled in my blanket of clouds
Dreaming aloud

Things just won't do without you, matter of fact
Oh oh ooh
I'm on your back
I'm on your back
Oh oh ooh
I'm on your back

If you'd accept surrender, I'll give up some more
Weren't you adored

I cannot be without you, matter of fact
Oh oh ooh
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

Another heart is cracked in two
I'm on your back

I cannot be without you, matter of fact
Oh oh ooh
I'm on your back
I'm on your back
Oh oh ooh
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

    General Commentthe song is basically choosing to stay in the other person's life even after the relationship. not because you're hoping to get back together but simply because there's that genuine care for that person that you wouldn't want anything to happen to her that would hurt her.

    'im on your back' and 'i'm walking after you' are basically lines that say

    General CommentIt's just about not giving up on the person you love.
    It's not creepy
    It's being so in love you can't imagine not being with that person.
    Makes me think of my boyfriend.
    =]
    I'm well happy

    General CommentI definitely like the version on 'The X-Files' soundtrack better. Either way, it's such a beautiful song. It's just amazing I think, and it shows sort of the other side of the Foo Fighters, in a way.

    My InterpretationI think it's about loving someone well after the other ends the relationship, and how badly he just wants to be involved and still be around her, but it's hard to that, because the last thing you want to do is annoy her by still being there.

    I'm going through something similar where I love someone so much and I really want to see and talk to her, but I can't because she ended the relationship and I'm stuck thinking about her. I don't want to bother her and make it weird for her so I deleted her number so I can't reach her myself and now I can only hope she tries to reach me.
