Tonight, I'm tangled in my
Blanket of clouds
Dreaming aloud

Things just won't do without you
Matter of fact
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I'm on your back
I'm on your back
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

If you'd accept surrender
Give up some more
Weren't you adored?

I cannot be without you
Matter of fact
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I'm on your back
I'm on your back
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

Another heart is cracked
In two
I'm on your back, ooh

I cannot be without you
Matter of fact
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I'm on your back

If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you
If you walk out on me
I'm walking after you

Another heart is cracked
In two
I'm on your back, ooh
Ooh, ooh

    General Commentthe song is basically choosing to stay in the other person's life even after the relationship. not because you're hoping to get back together but simply because there's that genuine care for that person that you wouldn't want anything to happen to her that would hurt her.

    'im on your back' and 'i'm walking after you' are basically lines that say

    General CommentIt's just about not giving up on the person you love.
    It's not creepy
    It's being so in love you can't imagine not being with that person.
    Makes me think of my boyfriend.
    =]
    I'm well happy

    General CommentI definitely like the version on 'The X-Files' soundtrack better. Either way, it's such a beautiful song. It's just amazing I think, and it shows sort of the other side of the Foo Fighters, in a way.

    General CommentAfter seeing the video, it seems like his girl has an addiction problem and he's trying to save her, but she's too far gone - ROCK BOTTOM. She keeps running, he's on her back, if she accepts surrender he'll give her more, wasn't she adored (at times she looks to be in a crack house, rehab, or running). She's torn between the drug and her love for him. Definitely a love song. He won't give up on her - "Walking After you." Funny how everyone has a different perspective!
