"I'm Coming After You" as written by Adam R. Young, Matthew Arnold Thiessen and Brian Dong Ho Lee....
I saw your face in a criminal sketch
Don't be alarmed 'cause you don't know me yet
I'm on the prowl now sniffing around this town, for you

Calling all cars there's an officer down
Shot to the heart on a night on the town
And the evidence of your fingerprints was found and now

You got the right to remain right here with me
I'm on your tail in a hot pursuit
Love is a high-speed chase racing down the street

Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you

Oh, no here we go once again
We both know you'll never turn yourself in
So I'm drivin' 'til it's light out
Searchin' for your hide-out
(drivin' 'til it's light out)
(Searchin' for your hide-out)

Pick up the pace as I chase you around
One of these days I'll end up trackin' you down
But, yeah, I got the feeling I'll be letting you loose when I do
Because you,
You got the right to remain right here with me
I'm on your tail in a hot pursuit
Love is a high-speed chase racing down the street
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you

You got the right to remain right here with me
I'm on your tail in a hot pursuit
Love is a high speed chase racing down the street

Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you

Love is a high speed chase racing down the street

You got the right to remain right here with me
I'm on your tail in a hot pursuit
Love is a high-speed chase racing down the street

Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you
Woo woo woo
I'm coming after you

I'm coming after you
I'm coming' after you
I'm coming' after you
I'm coming' after you

    General CommentWhen you're commenting, there's really no point saying it's obvious what the song is about, and then don't even state your opinion. People come on here to find out the meanings of the song, not to find out that other people know what it's about. Just saying. But yeah, anyway. I'm pretty sure this song is about a boy chasing a girl he likes but she keeps getting away.

    "One of these days I'll end up trackin' you down
    But, yeah, I got the feeling I'll be letting you loose when I do".

    This probably means by the time he's caught her, he's practically given up, and thinks it's better for her to be with someone she loves. He can never really get over her, but he's giving up the chase, in hopes she'll be coming back for him one day.
    That's my perspective of this song anyway.

    Song MeaningI've ALWAYS wanted to ask Adam Young what this song was really about, but I'm hope I'm right in thinking that this song is about God's (supposed) love for us. He's always on the chase for us, but when he does gut us, He'll let us go, or make our own decisions if we want to love him back. And also when the song says that he knows we'll never turn ourselves in is another possibility in the song being a religious point of view.
    But then again, I could be totally wrong, so PLEASE don't take my word for it.

    General CommentIt's obvious what this song is about. It's probably one of my favorites though on The Midsummer Station. I really like the metaphor comparing the it to a chase between the police and a thief.
