It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Damn, who knew?
All the planes we flew, good things we been through
That I'd be standing right here talking to you
'Bout another path, I know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn't last
Had to switch up, look at things different, see the bigger picture
Those were the days, hard work forever pays
Now I see you in a better place (see you in a better place)
Uh

How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through, you were standing there by my side
And now you gon' be with me for the last ride

It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again (I'll see you again)
We've come a long way (yeah, we came a long way) from where we began
(You know where we started)
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again (I'll tell you)
When I see you again

Ah-oh, ah-oh-oh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Yeah

First, you both go out your way and the vibe is feeling strong
And what's small turn to a friendship, a friendship turned to a bond
And that bond will never be broken
The love will never get lost (the love will never get lost)
And when brotherhood come first, then the line will never be crossed
Established it on our own when that line had to be drawn
And that line is what we reached
So remember me when I'm gone (remember me when I'm gone)

How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through, you were standing there by my side
And now you gon' be with me for the last ride

So let the light guide your way, yeah
Hold every memory as you go
And every road you take
Will always lead you home, home

It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Ah-oh, ah-oh-oh (uh)
(Yeah)
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (yeah)
When I see you again (yeah, uh)
When I see you again, yeah, yeah (ah-oh, ah-oh-oh) (yeah, yeah)
Oh, oh (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) (uh-huh)
When I see you again (yup)

    My Interpretation

    This song was specifically produced by Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa as a tribute to the "retirement" of Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) from the Fast and Furious franchise. Paul's abrupt death during the Furious 7 production process was a big time grief for the franchise team as his character was a major compliment to Dominic Torreto (Vin Diesel) 's role in the movie. The scene where Brian split ways with Dominic at the end of the movie was a tearjerker for many of the audiences, especially those who follow his gig from the first movie in the series.

    Specifically this song is about saying goodbye to a loved one: a best friend, a parent, a sibling, a spouse, a family, someone or a group of people that we have spent time so much on, spent time caring for, spent time listening to and supporting each other. The worst time you want to say goodbye is when you are happy with them, but in the end it can happen. You always want to have that "one last ride" with them, but in the end all you can do is to wish them luck as they walk their own paths. And when you "see them again" all you can remember is the good times you have had with each other.

    This song is a tribute to Paul Walker. The first verse seems to be from the point of view of his friends and family to Paul ("Now I see you in a better place"), while the second verse seems to be from the point of view of Paul himself to his friends and family ("So remember me when I'm gone").

    This song should really be credited to Charlie Puth and be featuring Wiz Khalifa. I think Wiz's sections really cheapen the song, and really lack the emotion of Charlie's writing and singing.

    Did either of them know Paul Walker??

    I read that Charlie wrote his lines after a friend of his died suddenly in a car accident.

    For one of the most watched Youtube videos I would have thought more people would have commented. The Youtube video is a bit of a montage to Paul Walker during his filming of the Fast and Furious series.

    “See You Again” is a tribute to the late Furious actor Paul Walker who died tragically in November of 2013 after his car crashed and burst into flames in Valenica, CA.

    The first verse is from the perspective of Vin Diesel and the Furious 7 cast members, while the second is from Paul Walker.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
