lyrics

I'm looking, always looking
I'm listening hard for the cue
Straining the veins in my eyes, looking for a sign
Somewhere in view
Wherever you go I will follow
I'm hanging on your every word
Waiting for a syllable so divine
It might make up for all the shit I've heard

In the evening of my effort
There's two little stars shining low
The eyes of my daughter looking up at me
To try to understand where to go

Whoever you are, and whatever you do
Somebody's looking to you
Whoever you are, and whatever you do
Somebody's looking to you
Somebody's looking to you

I used to look up at my father
The way a nation looks to it's king
Mesmerized by the way his eyes would look out
To some mysterious thing
Black bear looks to the honey
The flower's looking out to the bee
Never in a million years, did I think my dad
Was looking out at me

So when Moses led his people out of Egypt
He was just a regular dude
Because he had a stutter, he was looking to his brother
To lead him out of Egypt, too

Whoever you are...

So now I'm looking, always looking
I'm listening hard for the cue
Straining the veins in my heart
Looking to learn the secret art from you

When I'm drifting out on the ocean
I look for those two little stars
Remember to keep your little light on, baby
'Cause someone's looking out for yours

Whoever you are...
