"Like You to Me" as written by and Audelio Flores Mike Green....
Wait, I'm feeling it again
(Wait, I'm feeling it again.)
Had lost touch from gut to head
'Til we crossed a path and met
And I got scared just for a bit
Because I had been doing alright
Without a someone in my sights
But I am changing and quickly
Why does it hurt when we invest
Into an excitable sense?
When waiting anxious for return
Getting pushed away discerns
But I am wanting to try it again
And let another someone in
They're saving me

I jump through a wall when
I pick apart faults that
I've made in the past
Caused affection to pass
I want to learn from mistakes
I want it to be OK if I hold on tighter

Don't be afraid to find a way
Communicate your thoughts when it's your own line
Better to know, get "yes" or "no,"
Than wonder if it wait

Wait, I'm feeling it again
Reminds me of being a kid
Jumping on every seat in a moving car
It's life like the movies where we are
On basement show weekends
Trying our hands at pop-punk bands
All music, sharing everything that means the most

I'm getting so nervous scripting out these thoughts
I'm hoping I really don't mess this part up
Communication's something I still don't get
But if you work with me I'm sure to make it

Don't be afraid to find a way
Communicate your thoughts when it's your own line
Better to know, get "yes" or "no,"
Than wonder if it was worth the waiting

I'm getting so nervous scripting out these thoughts
(Make something to you like you to me)
I'm hoping I really don't mess this part up
(To mean something that we both mean)
Communication's something I still don't get
(Mean something to you like you to me)
But if you work with me I'm sure to make it
(We have a lot in ourselves)

I jump through a wall when
I pick apart faults that
I've made in the past
Caused affection to pass
I want to learn from mistakes
I want it to be OK if I hold on tighter
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, don't be afraid when it's your own line

Don't be afraid to find a way
Communicate your thoughts when it's your own line
Better to know, get "yes" or "no"
Than wonder if it
Wait, I'm feeling it again
(Wait, I'm feeling it again)
That excitable sense
(I'm feeling it again)
I'm feeling it again
And it's my own line
Better to know, get "yes" or "no,"
Than wonder if it was worth the wait

How long will you offer me stability when I have none to give in return?
My only hope is that when winter comes to this lonely beach town this year
You'd be willing to make time for me again
You're what makes this place the closest thing I have to home
And I can't help thinking that maybe this won't last
But I am hoping that someday those thoughts will fade
And things will change for us
I know they can

    General Commentthis song is definitely about falling in love.. getting close to someone after going through unsuccessful relationships. after being hurt when "investing in an excitable sense".
    but it's hopeful, because he realizes that he can learn from past mistakes, to help make something work. he tries to teach a lesson to the people listening, sort of telling them not to be afraid to communicate and work out problems, desires, futures, etc to make it work.

    I can relate to this a lot. getting "scared just for a beat" about love and being vulnerable..

    General CommentJordan: "A song to encourage, and a song about how one person can save another. With wffection and love, we can rebuild and find a same important love for ourselves. It's in how someone who cares about us views us, and how we in turn are able to see them in ourselves. It can keep us young and it can help us to pass the same feelings on to others who are close to us. There is so much to benefit from the right relationship and the only way to find it is to try it. Don't be afraid, go out and ask it. I wrote these lyrics about feelings that were given back to me from someone who came into my life almost unexpectedly. In the good I found in them, and the good they saw in me that I had lost sight of. They reminded me that the love I keep for myself is the love I can give back to them and others, and I am not afraid of it anymore. A lot of the song uses movie and film script analogies to convey the surreal experiences that come with falling into a friend, and falling into music as well. Life like the movies translates literally into the Movielife, a band and soundtrack we each shared growing up attending shows and playing in bands around the bay area." --The ending dialog was taken from a poem Matt had written, addressing concerns of taking a chance on something new and the hopeful, possibility of defeating those doubts and forming a life long kinship in the process.--

    General Commentwhat i got from this song had to do with jordan having somewhat of a relationship with someone back in their bay area hometown. "waiting anxious in return, getting pushed away this hurts"

    i think whoever the other side of this song is trying to save themselves the constant grief of having thier loved one constantly leave for tour.

    but towards the end of the song i think the times change and the other side (the person that stays in the bay area) starts making the best of the situation and decides they are worth it. and they are willing to wait for whoever is in set your goals to go on tour and come back. even if they are afraid of how much it hurts everytime they're gone (don't be afraid)

    pretty far-fetched, and i read the actually meaning from the band. but this is just what i got out of the song
