"See You Again" as written by David Hodges, Hillary Lindsey and Carrie Underwood....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Said goodbye, turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone
Faded into the setting sun,
Slipped away
But I won’t cry
'Cause I know I’ll never be lonely
For you are the stars to me,
You are the light I follow

I will see you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
'Till I see you again

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can hear those echoes in the wind at night
Calling me back in time
Back to you
In a place far away
Where the water meets the sky
The thought of it makes me smile
You are my tomorrow

I will see you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
'Till I see you again

Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking
But I stay strong and I hold on 'cause I know
I will see you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, yeah yeah

I will see you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
'Till I see you again
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
'Till I see you again (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
'Till I see you again yeah yeah yeah whoa
'Till I see you again
Said goodbye turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone.

    General CommentPersonally I think this song is about a family member that passed away out of no where. And She didn't get the chance to say goodbye. Love this song:D I can really relate to it.

    Song MeaningI feel that this song could be about a loved one going off to war. While it could also be interpretted as losing a loved one, i feel that it has multipule meanings. It is one of those songs that you hear and can't help but feel hopeful. No matter how the listener interprets it, it is a very positive take on loss (whether physically permenent or not).

    My InterpretationI'm actually listening to this song as I type! Great song! "See You Again" has a very positive meaning like the others above have mentioned. I also can't help but feel optimistic after listening to it. I believe it can be interpreted a few different ways based on the listener's choice. However, I think it's more about a loved one going away for a while and then coming back and how strong love can truly be. I suggest for others to see the official video for the song. One of my favorite songs by Carrie Underwood. She sure can sing!

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is about a loved one dying or leaving for a long time.
    In the dying sense, it could be used that you will see them again once your time comes, or maybe they will be spiritually present with you again.
    I can relate to it because this song was playing when my bestfriend said we wouldn't get to see eachother for a long time.
    This part I especially relate to:
    "I can hear those echoes in the wind at night
    Calling me back in time
    Back to you
    In a place far away
    Where the water meets the sky
    The thought of it makes me smile"
    When I hear this, I think of all our memories and how we'll have lots more.

    My InterpretationTo be honest lets yes I must agree with some of the above comments,which state that opinions could deffer form person to person when listening to this song. Here is my take on it.
    It's true that the music video and the lyrics gives the viewer/listener the impression about life after death and instills hope that you might see them again.

    It could also mean that a person who really cared about you decided, he/she had no choice, but to leave because he/she cared too much and thus the lyrics seem to show regret when she says "Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking
    But I stay strong and I hold on" & "this is not where it ends, I will carry you with me" because it might have been to hard to let go but yet she/he hold on to the memory of the past in hope that their paths would cross again, if not in this life may be the nect :). In the 3rd verse the 2nd and 3rd stanzas ( I can hear those echoes in the wind at night Calling me back in time) indicates an intimate memory of the past, which he/she remembers fondly. the rest of the 3rd verse shows that he/she yearns to see him/her again. The 5th verse shows that sometimes any of us can lose hope and thus can break you at times. when she (carrie) says "but I stay strong and hold on cause I know, I will see you again" shows even though the thought of you can break him/her that both of them (or at least one of them) would still hold on to the memory of you until the time was right to see each other again. That's my take on this song lol i feel like I'm in Literature class all over again :D

    General Comment'Cause I know I’ll never be lonely
    For you are the stars to me,
    You are the light I follow

    Song is about Jesus. Jesus is the light. Nobody would call a person [other then jesus] the "light I follow"

    I can hear those echoes in the wind at night
    Calling me back in time
    Back to you
    In a place far away
    Where the water meets the sky
    The thought of it makes me smile

    Reference to heaven. The "you" is Jesus. The place where water meets the sky is heaven. She will see him again. She will see him there

    You are my tomorrow

    Her faith. Her everything.

    Carry you with me= Carry the cross/faith with her everywhere. Image of Jesus. She must be talking about an encounter with Jesus from the past. Thats why its her everything, her light
