"All I See" as written by Carl Linwood Carr, Charles Smith, Joseph Smith, Y and Rodney Jerkins....
All I see
Scares me
No one waits

You will never waste my time, no, no
You will never waste my time, 'cause

Well, she locks all the doors and turns, says,
"We will always be safe here in this bed

All I see
Scares me, and no one waits
Forever

So come closer, baby
I want to see what you're made of,
See what you're made of
'Cause this isn't all we could be
You're not the same, and I'm, I'm not the same and

No one could ever wait for you
And no one, yeah, no one could ever
Wait for you, I'll wait for you, love

But you are the never ending sleep
That I, I love to treat
With this medicine I get from my, my closer friend but
All I see

So come closer, baby
I want to see what you're made of,
See what you're made of
'Cause this isn't
All we could be
You're not the same, and I'm
I'm not the same and

    General CommentWell I actually got this song title tattooed on my arm with a portrait of myself covering my eyes and what i get from this song is entering a new relationship and being afraid because of the ones that have left a mark and that no one will wait for you while you being coward hiding for love

    General Commentmk04m i've thought that in several of lydia's songs there has been underlying drug references too..

    The 'waiting' and 'changing' in this song could be inrelation to a drug dependency or an overcoming of an addiction..

    Having said that all the theories hold their own truths so far..

    Thats prob the best thing about Lydias music.. the room for interpretation is endless.

    They need to come to the UK.

    General CommentI think its sad how he refers to drugs as his "medicine"

    its like he can't live without it.

    this song is perfect.

    General CommentThis song is incredible. Definitely my favourite off the new album...

    I think it's about two people that used to be together, but aren't any more, but the singer is saying that they've both 'changed', and that any of their past faults aren't any more.

    That's why he's saying "this isn't all we could be", because he knows they'd be good together again, rather than apart.

    General CommentI think this is a sort of prequel to the song "Hospital" on the same album. I think maybe the guy is dying in a hospital bed after being in a coma for a long time. Remembering his love that would come see him for a while, but finally gave up, that he would not wake up, and so left him. And now he is dying and remembering her. I think "Hospital" is after and he has died and passed on, but singing to her.

    General CommentI like Hixey's interpretation, especially because I've been listening to "All I See" and "Hospital" back to back and can see the resemblance.

    General CommentAt first I agreed with Hixey but recently I've been playing the play list backwards and I just hear a story each time. Starting with Now the One you Once Loved is Leaving, then ..ha, yeah it got pretty bad. etc. I like to think of this whole album as a story of a couple who were having troubles with drugs (maybe not?) or just differences, and then they get back together. One More Day is when the song refers to the couple getting back together. Hospital refers to it not being the same as it once was. (The relationship) and etc.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure its "she locks all the doors and turns" instead of "she looks at the doors and turns".
    An amazing song :)
