"I See You, You See Me" as written by and Romeo William Stodart....
I never wanted to love you, but that's okay
I always knew that you'd leave me anyway
But darling when I see you, you see me

I asked the boys if they'd let me go out and play
They always said that you'd hurt me anyway
But darling when I see you, I see me

And it's alright
I never thought I'd fall in love again
It's alright
I look to you as my only friend
It's alright
I never thought that I could feel there's something
Rising, rising in my veins
Looks like it's happened again

I never thought that you wanted for me to stay
So I left you with the girls that came your way
And darling when I see you I see me

I often thought that you'd be better off left alone
Well throw a circle round a man with broken bones
But darling when I see you, I see me

It's alright
I never thought I'd fall in love again
It's alright
I look to you as my only friend
It's alright
I never thought that I could feel there's something
Rising, rising in my veins
Looks like it's happened again

You always looked like you had something else on your mind
When I try to tell you, you tell me "nevermind"
But darling when I see you, you see me

I wanna tell you that I never loved anyone else
You wanna tell me that you're better off by yourself
But darling when I see you, you see me

Oooh, oo-oo-oooh
This is not what I'm like, this is not what I do
This is not what I'm like, I think I'm falling for you

This is not what I'm like, this is not what I do
This is not what I'm like, I think I'm falling for you
(repeat)

I never thought
This is not what I'm like, this is not what I do
I never thought
This is not what I'm like, I think I'm falling for you
(repeat)

I never thought that I could feel there's something
Rising, rising in my veins
And it looks like I feel there's something
Rising, rising in my veins
Looks like it's happened again

    General Commentactually, I get the opposite reaction. Maybe I am seeing through the veil of optomism but I see it as two friends who are simultaneously beginning to wonder exactly who they are to each other. Each person has been hurt in romance before "I often thought that you’d be better off left alone,
    Well throw a circle round a man with broken bones" and neither are eager to take that risk again. Also as a result of the previous hurt both are overcautious and constantly second guessing how the other feel about them.
    Neither want to be in that vulnerable state again and have therefore hardened and become more cynical. "This is not what I’m like; this not what I do.
    This is not what I’m like; I think I’m falling for you. "
    Also both are at the point where they'
    re getting ready to say how they feel but just can't bring themselves to do it.
    Well for what it's worth that's my take on it.

    General CommentIt's a nice take on the song and the nice music would have you believe that it was about a friendship turning into romance but i don't think it is, i agree with aj more.
    Two people who are kinda both cheats who wouldn't usually fall in love. they fall for each other. and have a rocky relationship. But can never truly part.
    I like listening to a song with another persons interpretation in mind, i can see where celestra is coming from.

    the video to this song is cool, doesn't stop you believing your own version of the songmeaning like alot of crap videos do.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song!

    I've got to agree with celestra. There is a lot of optimism in the song.

    To me this song is about understanding and misunderstanding - two friends trying to contemplate falling in love with one another.
    They've been hurt - they are unsure about trusting another with feelings - but they see
    they can be happy together- and for once feel real love.

    "I never thought that I would feel this something,
    Rising, rising in my veins..."

    Let's not be so cynical guys! Just enjoy it - especially the female vocal..........wow..............

    General CommentHmm i think it's about 2 people who have previously split up, and have been on/off friends since and are now starting to fall in love with each other again.

    General CommentA person was hurt by love, they never thought they would recover but they have...they go on to feel love again but they never forget that one person who was their true love. when its true love you will always love them even when u move on.

    General CommentI think it's about two friends, who support each other through all their relationships but secretly all the time want each other, but don't know it and then they realise that the feeling is mutual, and how much the other means to them.

    General CommentI think it is about two people realising how much they love each other, I remember looking at my ex when we were still together and thinking I see myself in him, "when I see you I see me", we were so of one mine and together it felt like at that time were part of the same piece.
