Hello, it's me
I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong
There's something here that doesn't last too long
Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you're always there
I take for granted that you just don't care
Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that i'd be with you if i could.
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if i ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think i should

(think of me)

    It's about a man that has died and is watching over his first love. The something that doesn't last too long is life. He sees her a lot because he is watching over her, but he wants her to know that she is free... It is okay to move on with her life. He doesn't want her to change because he is gone... He wants her to love again. He also wants her to know he would be with her physically if he could. Spending the night is figurative for being there for her through the darkness... When she needs to smile. He just wants to know that she still thinks of him because he is always with her.

    Sometimes you can love someone passionately, but you know you're not right for marriage. I've always loved this song because it reminds me of my first love. It's as if todd wrote the song for us post-breakup.

    I think the song is about a possessive relationship and he never felt worthy of her. He is also sensing that she is pulling away and he wants to try to ease her mind that there relationship will be ok

    I used to think it was a melancholy song about accepting that a relationship just wasn't going to work out. Now that i'm older and more cynical, i think it's a guy not wanting to be tied down who is just making nice-sounding excuses.
