"See You When I Get There" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
I'm looking up
At the moving clouds
I've been hit so hard
This time
I just might stay down
If you were me
I would come back
To get you
If this is love
Then I don't remember
You won't find anyone
To treat you better
we've already been through
Hell and high waters

I ain't sorry baby
don't think that
We ain't done anything
That I'd take back
Go on pretend
That you ain't changed
And don't worry bout' me
I'll see you when I get there

I'm looking up
At the moving clouds
I've been down so long
But I still think you
Might come around
So I'm making plans
For when you feel better
You just might want
Someone more familiar
You won't find anyone
Else to take you back
Now sometimes you're an angel
But you're usually
A pain in the ass

[chorus]
I need your love
Much more than I want it
You left me here
With another bad habit
Now you found paradise
And crawled to the shoreline
I saw a white flash
And then I saw the lids of my eyes

[chorus]

    General Commenthmmm the meaning though of the song....no one decided to say it and just put random comments so here I go:

    It sounds to me like there's been a screw up in a relationship but this one hurt so much that he's not bothering to care again about future ones. He's simply waiting on her to turn around pretty much...

    However, near the end though the lines "I saw a white flash
    And then I saw the lids of my eyes" it seems like either one of two things happened at that point:
    Either
    A) so much time passed the persona simply died or
    B) the persona took his life

    I can't really figure out which one it is though, maybe someone else's opinion would help. = )
