"Lookin' Out Forever" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
The one who loves you most
Is giving up the ghost
And taking to the stage
Like a stone on a grave
Yeah I think of her
Every once in awhile
Every once in awhile
Forever

I'm lookin' out forever now
I love you now forever now
I love you now forever now yeah
I'm lookin' out forever now
I'm lookin' out forever now
I'm lookin' out forever now yeah

I love you now forever now
I love you now forever now
I love you now forever now yeah
I'm lookin' out forever now
I love you now forever now yeah

Ain't nothing else I can say
Nothin' left to give her
Abandon the wind
I'm a bend in the river

Standing by the bank
They're calling me across
Think of me sometimes
When the river flows because

I'm lookin' out forever now
I love you now forever now
I love you now forever now yeah

God I know I'm going home
God I don't belong

Taste me in his kisses
Waste me in my prime
Are replace me with another
Think of me some time

    General CommentSounds like a man yearning for a lost love that is in someone else's arms now. Some of the imagery about being called across the river and going home makes me think he might be about to commit suicide.
    Either way a great song and more people than would freely admit it are probably looking out forever for someone they lost in th past.

    General CommentThe first line reminds me of one of my favourite lyrics in one of my favourite Mats song "Bastards of Young":

    The ones who love us most are the ones we'll lay to rest
    and visit their graves on holidays at best
    The ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please
    If it's any consolation, I don't begin to understand them.
