"Think Of You Later" as written by David Ryan Strauchman, Joshua Randall Withenshaw, James Francis Deeghan and Michael Joseph Govaere....
This might be my last chance
So maybe I should take it?
I just hope you're listening
To everything I'm saying

I miss the long drives, the car rides
The bad fights, the good times
The way you make me feel
Will never leave my mind

Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone
Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone

So quit your cryin'
And wipe the tears from your eyes
'Cause this is 'See you later'
I'm not into goodbyes

Watch the brake lights
As I leave your drive-way
The warm nights will stay beside me
No matter where I go

Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone
Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone

Watch the brake lights
As I leave your drive-way
The warm nights will stay beside me
No matter where I go

Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone

Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone
Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone

Think of you later in my empty room
Where I, I will fall asleep alone

    General Commentambamboom I totally agree.
    This song brings tears to my eyes, i just want to cry because its so honest.
    I feel like maybe it has to do with him going on the road or after making a decisoin not to be with a girl he's trying to justify it to himself by saying this is for the best because its like i dont love her or i'm not going to be there for her.
    "‘Cause this is “see you later,”
    I’m not into goodbyes."
    That part sort of signifies that he needs to hold onto something from that relationship.
    This song always gets me because the worst way to end a really meaningful relationship is on good terms because its good but at the same time you hurt because the hurt is focused on the fact there's no way to blame anyone. It's just over.


    I love this song

    My InterpretationThis song makes me cry every time I hear it. It's so plain that both the singer and the girl he's singing to ("you") are still in love, but due to outside circumstances they can't be together. I think that the line that makes it so sad is the opening, "this might be my last chance, so maybe I should take it," because he's still so hopeful that they will one day be together, but it's pretty obvious that they probably won't be. The saddest love is when you know that you both love each other but can't do anything to pursue it :(

    My InterpretationI really don't see it as a break-up song. I have to agree with the long distance comments. Look at the lyrics. "The way you make me feel". As in present tense. If it was for a break up I would assume they would have used made instead of make. Also "quit your crying and wipe the tears from your eyes. This is see you later, I'm not into goodbyes". He's coming back her or she to him. It's not goodbye. And I can relate to this. I'm in the Air Force, as is my husband. He's stationed half a country away from where I'm at.

    General Commentman, i wish more people commented this song!! i NEED to know what it means.

    well i think that this song is about someone who has to break up with their boyfriend/girlfriend, but wants the other person to know that they will never be far from their thoughts. idk if that's correct though. please, COMMENT!! =)

    General Commenti think your pretty close. it is saying that he has to leave, he will miss her, no matter where he goes in the future, he will think of her. hes going to miss her but its going to be fine cause hes still there for her. he wont leave her side. they just cant be together i suppose. i think thats what it means. did that help?

    General Commenti think it's that he can't be with this certain girl all the time, and he's always leaving her. so he's always falling asleep alone without her, and stuff such as so. but he'll never forget about her and will always think about her.
    personally, this is one of my favorites by every avenue. it's just too great for words.

    General Commentoh and you guys who live in the US, go to every show of every band like Every Avenue or Mayday and what not. Because up here in Canada, they never come unless its for Warped Tour, and even then, sometimes they dont.
    Appreciate your local music ^_^
