"You May See Me" as written by and Grace Potter....
You may see me when I'm on the run
On the run, when I'm on the run
You may see me when I'm all undone
All undone, when I'm all undone

You may see me smoking a cigarette
A cigarette, a cigarette
You may see me and try to forget
Won't forget, but you won't forget

And you got the eyes to look for what you saw
And when you don't win or lose, I guess you draw
Well, I had to leave, I guess you had to stay

But don't come looking, baby
'Cause if you look too hard I might just
You know I might just look away

You may see me but you never know
You never know, no, you never know
You may see me in Ohio
Ohio, in Ohio

?Cause you got the eyes to look for what you saw
And when you don't win or lose I guess you draw
And I had to leave, I guess you had to stay

Don't come looking, babe
'Cause if you look too hard I might just look away
Just look away

So don't come looking, babe
Don't come looking, babe
?Cause if you look too hard
You'll find me in the wrong place

Oh, you got the eyes to look for what you saw
And when you don't win or lose, I guess you draw
But I had to leave, I guess you had to stay

But don't come looking, baby
?Cause if you look too hard
No, don't come looking, baby
?Cause if you look too hard I might just look away

You may see me, well, I ain't got a thing

    Song Meaningwell, this song is georgeous. i love her higher register on the chorus. But, i think that this song implies alot about a partcular love life. She's everywhere to him ['you may see me...'], but he's nowhere to her ['I might just look away']. She seems to talk about how bad her luck ['draw'] is and her situations are. It seems like she let those situations dictate her fate so much that her fate has turned out to be a non-realistic hope... they'll never end up together...she's really not even worth it and even if he tried to convince her that she is, she wouldn't believe it.

    General CommentThis song is is so pretty, and progressively gets prettier. To me this song is about some sort of conflict with someone which the singer escaped from, and she doesn't want to be reminded of it when she is most content or not on her best terms. That's the way I interrupt it.
