See You Again by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth

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’ve been through

That I’ll 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 what we started)

Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again (I’ll tell you)

When I see you again

 

Aah oh, aah oh

Ooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

(Yeah)

 

First, you both go out your way and the vibe is feeling strong

And what’s small turn to a friendship, a friendship turn 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 reach

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

 

Aah oh, aah oh (uh)

(Yeah)

Ooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (yeah)

 

When I see you again (yeah, uh)

See you again (yeah, yeah)

Oh, oh (uh huh)

When I see you again (yup)

Song Meaning:

If you are planning a funeral home cremation services for your departed love one, one of the most important components is the music. After all, this has the power to touch the soul, surpassing boundaries and limitations. Even in the darkest times when you feel no one can understand you, music can help you flesh out your heavy emotions and dark feelings.

As such, you must plan the funeral songs with careful consideration. If you are looking for suggestions to include in your playlist, “See You Again” is a great choice. This song was originally a soulful ballad created by Charlie Puth, but Wiz Khalifa was later invited to add some rap segments. Combining both genres ensured the producers had a pop hit. As such, it was not surprising that this ditty ranked number one on The Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This leading streak lasted for 28 weeks, which goes to show just how much this ode to friendship and camaraderie has touched so many people.

Many of you may be familiar with “See You Again” because it was composed after the sudden demise of Paul Walker in 2013. He is the actor who’s known for his iconic role in the Fast and Furious series. In fact, this particular song made it to the 2015 Furious 7 movie, which Walker was unable to complete. As such, his younger brother stepped in to finish some of his scenes.

This particular soundtrack was played as a send-off to Walker in a scene where he drives his race car next to Vin Diesel’s car. Finally, they reach a road that diverges into two, so they have to part ways. It provides the perfect symbolism for death as loved ones part ways when their beloved leaves the ephemeral world.

You may have shed tears at this particular scene, like many other viewers. It is a poignant one, especially with the realization that the smiling image of Paul Walker on screen is an illusion because he has long passed on. The visuals wrap up beautifully with the words, “It’s been a long day without you, my friend / And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again.”

These touching lines center on hope as the characters aspire to reunite again someday. It is exactly the message which the bereaved family and friends need to hear during the funeral services. Though they don’t know exactly when or how they will meet up with their departed loved ones, the lyrics and the melody provide a huge sense of comfort to the ones listening.

The song also goes on to say that “Those were the days / Hard work forever pays / Now I see you in a better place.” It makes for a perfect funeral song because it encapsulates what people go through when they lose somebody they love. The time spent together with the deceased is wonderful, and the hard work you did together shall indeed always be worth it. All these experiences will be fondly remembered, but as the one left behind, you should take comfort in knowing the deceased is in a better and happier place.

And as this touching line suggests- “And that bond will never be broken / The love will never get lost”-though you are no longer together with the deceased here on earth, your special relationship will never die.
