"No Looking" as written by Victoria Aspinall, Georgina Birch, Ana Paula Da Silva and Richard Dudanski....
He put sugar in his coffee
He stirred coffee with a teaspoon
He poured milk into sweetened coffee
He lifted the cup up to his lips

He drank coffee 'til was empty
He put cup back onto saucer
Without looking at me
Without looking at me

He took cigarette from his packet
He lit cigarette with his matches and
He blew smoke rings with the smoke
Without looking at me
Without talking to me

He put his hat onto his head
He put raincoat 'cos it was raining
Oh he did have no umbrella
And he left in the rain
Without looking at me
Without talking to me

Silently no looking
Talking to no one else
Leaving me without looking
Looking at me without leaving
Leaving me without looking
Silently without looking
You leaving me, leaving me
Looking at me without speaking
Speaking to me without looking
Looking at me without talking
Talking to me without leaving
Leaving me without looking

I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking
I'm not looking, I'm not talking, I'm not looking, I'm not talking

No looking at me, no looking at me
No looking at me, no looking at me
No looking at me, no looking at me
No looking at me, no looking at me
No looking, I'm not looking, I'm not looking, I'm not looking at me

    General CommentI always imagined it was strangers in a coffee shop or something.

    But I just thought what if it's in a home?

    General CommentI love this song.. the way it's put together is genius- at first you don't even notice how introcate the wording is(or notice they're words in general) til you really listen.
    I definitely think it's about an encounter with a stranger

    My InterpretationThis song is a translation of the poem "Breakfast" by Jacques Prévert.

    With that being said, I think the song discusses a father and child relationship. As in, the father and child see each other in public every now and then, but the father hasn't and doesn't want any sort of relationship with his child, and will even go so far as to not even look at them in public.

    I guess it could also mean a lover who wants nothing but sex and leaves without saying anything, or a child leaving their home for some reason (like war or just in anger). But the father and son (or daughter) aspect is how I interpreted it.
