"Seeing Things" as written by Christopher Mark Robinson and Rich S. Robinson....
Find it hard to shed a tear
Brought it on yourself, my dear
And wrong, yes, I may be,
Don't leave a light on for me
'cause I ain't comin' home
It hurts me baby, to be alone
Yes, it hurts me baby.

One hundred years will never ease
There are days I won't believe
I saw it with my own two eyes
All the pain, I can't hide
And this pain, starts in my heart
And this love, tears us apart now!

Won't find me bent down, on my knees
Oh, yeah,
Ain't bending over backwards, not to please
Oh, no

'Cause I'm seeing things, for the first time
I'm seeing things, for the first time
I'm seeing things, for the first time
In my life
In my life, yeah

And oh how I used to dream
Of better days that never came
And sorry ain't nothing to me
I'm gone, and that's the way it must be

So please, I've done my time
Loving you is such a crime
You won't find me down, on my knees
Oh no no no
Won't find me over backwards, just to please
Oh, yeah

'Cause I'm seeing things, for the first time
I'm seeing things, for the first time
I'm seeing things, for the first time
In my life
In my life, yeah

    General Commentnot only a relationship, this can also apply to any situation you were blind in...a situation where you didn't know what was really going on, and now you have seen things for what they are and you are leaving and not changing/giving in for anything.

    amazing song + yes, underrated.

    General CommentOne of the best and most underrated of the Black Crowes songs. This song is great to listen to just after breaking up with someone, 'cause that's what it's about.
    It's about breaking up with someone, even though maybe you don't really want to, cause you're finally seeing things in the relationship (and life maybe) for what they really are.
    You're saying that "You won't find me on my knees/aint bending over backwards just to please" you're ending the relationship with your pride and dignity in tact. You won't pander to the other person.

    General CommentI love this song! Absolutely underrated! Especially if you have ever been subjected to the "saw it with my own two eyes" scenario!
