"Look Up" as written by and Robert Orrall Angaleena Presley....
Your friends hold the lullabys
They watch the way the night lies
Soft sounds, heads like a radio
Hearts wrapped in blankets, laying low
Hearts wrapped in blankets, laying low

You're cold, maybe you just miss the sun
You fall feeling like it's just begun
So far keeping it together's been enough
Look up the rain is falling
Looks like love

Your boy is like a memory
With some sense of touch and a melody
Your girl she's a renegade
A hurricane that keeps you there, safe
Hurricane that keeps you there, safe

You're cold maybe you just miss the sun
You fall feeling like it's just begun
So far keeping it together's been enough
But look up the rain is falling
Looks like love

You're cold maybe you just miss the sun
You fall feeling like it's just begun
So far keeping it together's been enough
But look up the rain is falling
Looks like love

You're cold maybe you just miss the sun
You fall feeling like it's just begun
So far keeping it together's been enough
But look up the rain is falling
Looks like love
Rain is falling
Looks like love
Rain is falling
Looks like love
Rain is falling
Looks like love

    General Commentthe oboe part at the begining of the song is actually from a major part of a movement from a Berloiz symphany. in it, the oboe represents a farmer in the hills calling to another farmer who answers (the english horn). Berloiz hears them while hes laying in the fields of the hills. eventually (at the end of the movement) the one farmer calling (oboe) finds that he is replied to only by thunder - it begins to storm.

    its funny. i actually just saw this symphony performed and then i heard this song like two days later. what i find interesting is that the movement of the Berloiz symphony the oboe is replied to with thunder, suggesting its raining and this song ends with... "rain is falling, looks like love."

    this song really coincides with the Berloiz story if you know the details... its really a love story. read up on it. its surprising.

    General Commenti'm so glad somebody else pointed out the Berlioz connection. I first heard this song at a Gap, immediatly after a semester spent studying the Symphonie Fantastique. I was at first I was angry that it had been ripped - but then...

    as ohpioneer points out, the storm idea does connect, and it's nice that way. Except the entire movement of the Berlioz isn't about a storm, necessarily, it's about lonliness. The oboe is absent at the end, the melody at some points in the middle drops out entirely, it's far from a love song, it's a lost song. Plus, the entire symphony is more about dark obsession than pretty lovey-dovey. So I freaked out - Stars had missed the point entirely. But I re-evaluated. The call itself, the only part that's used in Look Up, is a love call. It's just never answered. But that small little 6 note pattern is the essence of love. And in that Stars did Berlioz justice.

    I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE WHO LIKES THIS SONG TO LISTEN TO BERLIOZ'S SYMPHONIE FANTASTIQUE (No. 1) MOVEMENT 3: SCENE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE! :)

    General CommentThis whole album is amazing, but I think this song is probably one of the best, aside from Time Can Never Kill a True Heart...

    General CommentUm... Does anyone else think of Winnie The Pooh at the beginning of this song? It's so weird, my friend pointed it out, she said "Don't you just think of Pooh eating his honey at the beginning of Look Up?" And I thought she was really weird, but then... I listened to it while thinking of it like that, and she was so right.

    General CommentI love Look Up, mainly because I link it to a very dear book by Jeanne DuPrau... The People of Sparks.

    Okay, okay, plugging aside, I was rather happy to find out Berlioz is part of Look Up (I love the oboe and English horn parts), and am trying to find the part of the song Look Up includes... No success yet.

    Highly recommended song, it's a wonderful song of hope. C=
