"I'll See You When We're Both Not So Emotional" as written by Steven Joseph Lamos, Stephen Michael Holmes and Michael Thomas Kinsella....
If you're so prone to accidents and misunderstandings
You may accidentally misinterpret honesty for selfishness
We're two human beings, individually
With inherent interest in each other and how we relate

If you're still prone to accidents and misunderstandings
You won't understand me or my motivation for being alone
We're just two human beings, individually
With inherent interest in each other and how we relate

Considering everything, me leaving with regrets only makes sense
I'll see you when we're both not so emotional

    General Comment"If you're so prone to accidents and misunderstandings you may accidently misinterpret honesty for selfishness." It means that he is questioning if she will understand the fact he is being so honest when he says he just wants to be alone, but rather take it as if he's being selfish when he says he wants to go a seperate way. Thus the lines of "misinterpret honesty for selfishness." It's a song that revolves around nothing really more then simply misunderstanding, two people wanting two different things. "Inherent interest" they will both grow to realize and understand each others feelings. "I'll see you when we're both not so emotional" So for now he wants to be alone, because as often when you run with high emotions, you say the wrong things, so basically it's none other then taking time off to understand and realize how each other feels.

    General CommentWow...what a band...it's very sad that they had to break. This is the song that got me hooked. To me this song seems to be about two people who take everything that is said in the wrong ways. It seems to leave one saying "timing is everything".

    General Commenti loved the song, now i read the lyrics and i appriciate it much more. i can see my own feelings in these words...apparently this was a one-time deal to begin with, just a little experiment to try something a little different for the members. it led to some amazing music, thanks guys.
