"I See It Now" as written by and Paul Norris Nelson....
It's good to see your face again, it's been awhile
How am I doing, Well I get by somehow
You sure look good since your new love came in your life
You know I didn't see that fire in you he's found
Oh but I see it now

Oh I never saw that look in your eyes
And I never had you hold me that tight
And I never saw you dance with your feet off the ground
Oh but I see It Now

Holding him, you never looked more beautiful
Letting go has been so hard on me
And sitting here, it's clear to see what he means to you
The way you look at him, it ain't no mystery
He's all I couldn't be

Oh I never saw that look in your eyes
And I never had you hold me that tight
And I never saw you dance with your feet off the ground
Oh but I see It Now

And I never saw you dance with your feet off the ground
Oh but I see it now

    General CommentOn its surface. this song seems to be about missing an ex, and the pain of watching her happy with another man.

    But the song, while being filled with "you" and "your," is dominated by the first-person pronoun, "I." The song is actually about the speaker's failure at loving a woman properly.

    It's in the line "He's all I couldn't be." It's not that his ex is more compatible with her new boyfriend, its that he treats her right, knows how to love her. Our speaker can't make a woman happy ("I never saw that look in your eye"), lacks unabashed physical intimacy "(I never had you hold me that tight"), and is unable to sweep a woman off her feet ("I never saw you dance with your feet off the ground").

    Such an underrated song by a largely forgotten about singer.
