about

This is a song about lost love, jealousy, and an inability to accept and move on.

lyrics

"The Way She Looks"

Morning uncovers me awake like a flower
Daylight discovers me, a grim waking hour
Wind blows the curtain, the bedclothes are cold
Reach for a pillow for something to hold

Oh, I'm here on the outside
And every time I find somebody new
I can't seem to make a connection
I wish she looked at me
The way she looks at you

When I see you together, your hand in her hand
And your love is a language I can't understand
Wherever I look I can still see her face
Though long ago. long ago I lost the race to her heart

Oh, I'm here on the outside
And every time I find somebody new
I can't seem to make a connection
I wish she looked at me
The way she looks

Staring at a sunrise aching for the night
I'm a slave to my emotions, blurring black and white
Always starting with devotion, and ending in a fight
Well, I'm finding all the wrong ones, losing all the right

Oh, I'm here on the outside
And every time I find somebody new
I can't seem to make a connection
I wish she looked at me
I wish that she'd look at me
The way she looks at you
