"See You At The Show" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
Crowds that scream at superstars
Where bouncers show their battle scars
I've been the first to sign on every wall
Down the road and round the bend
We pray to god it never ends
I've been, I've seen, we've screamed to everyone

We'll see you at the show
If you don't come we'll never know
You stand off in the back
You still stand out while you're wearing black
You jump onto the bus
And ride around with all of us
We'll go out onto the town
And light it up 'til we burn it down

After hours and alcohol
Every club, we've seen 'em all
As long as we don't need to stand in line
Party scenes and billboard dreams
The ladies love those limousines
You know were gonna show up every time

Well see you at the show
If you don't come we'll never know
You stand off in the back
You still stand out while your wearing black
You jump onto the bus
And ride around with all of us
We'll go out on the town
And light it up 'til we burn it down
(burn it down)

Crowds that scream at superstars
Where bouncers show their battle scars
I've been the first to sign on every wall
Down the road and round the bend
We pray to god it never ends
I've been, I've seen, we've screamed to everyone

We'll see you at the show
If you don't come we'll never know
You stand off in the back
You still stand out while you're wearing black
You jump onto the bus
And ride around with all of us
We'll go out onto the town
And light it up 'til we burn it down
(burn it down)
Light it up 'til we burn it down
(you know were gonna)
Light it up till we burn it down

    General CommentThis song is basically about a band who picks up prostitutes and does drugs. "Light it up till we burn it down" and "Party scenes and bimbo dreams" Basically, they think that since they're living the high life, they don't have to take their career seriously. They're thinking "Hey, we're popular, let's party!" So they go out to parties, get drunk, do drugs, and hang out with "ladies of the night". "Light it up till we burn it down" basically meanst that they're going to keep lighting that match and smokin that weed until they burn it down, or get caught, or ruin their career. They're going to keep going until the very end.

    it's all about living the high life of the rich and famous, just living it up until they have to give it up.

    First of all, the line you put "Light it up till we burn it down" and "Party scenes and bimbo dreams" has a incorrect word. Here's the entire verse.

    "After hours and alcohol
    Every club, we've seen em all
    As long as we don't need to stand in line
    Party scenes and billboard dreams
    The ladies love those limousines
    You know they're gonna show up every time"
    Light it up till we burn it down does sound like they're referring to drug use but Bimbo dreams? did you even see this site's lyrics? Just a random guys nitpicking. Feel free to ignore me/ call me a Nutter.

    General CommentDisapointing
    I thought it was about a gang going from club to club. With one of them trying to make a girl come with them
    (the kind of goth/reject/serious girl who never go out of her room(the ''goth''is used as:''wearing black with white make up'', no offence meant to anyone))

    You stand off in the back
    You still stand out while you're wearing black
    Jump onto the bus
    And ride around with all of us


    ... I'm disapointed

    General CommentWhen I first heard it, it sounded like another way to advertise their concerts.

    I've been the first to sign on everyone - They do autographs
    We pray to god it never ends - They need fans, or they won't be famous

    We'll see you at the show - They're expecting you

    If you don't come, we'll never know - They have so many fans they won't be able to tell who is there and who isn't

    You stand off in the back/You still stand out while you're wearing black - Even if you're at the back of the crowd, they'll still see SOMEONE standing there

    Jump onto the bus/And ride around with all of us/We'll go out on the town - Go party with them, despite what you think, some stars do like to party with fans

    And light it up 'til we burn it down - Light up the stage (not a joint - though many people do smoke at concerts)

    I know it's not an advertisement, but I want to give you examples as to why I thought this so you wouldn't be all "You're stupidzer hahaHA, go to hellzerz... LoLL!!!"

    Seriously, first time I heard it that's what I thought. I wasn't even really listening. Now I think it's about their lives.

    Song MeaningIt's about Nickelback's rise to fame and the lifestyle of being a rockstar. (Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll.) I don't understand why Nickelback gets so much hate...they're very good songwriters.
