"Look no Further" as written by Jon Brion, Dido Armstrong and Rollo Armstrong....
I might have been a singer
Who sailed around the world
A gambler who wins millions
And spent it all on girls

I might have been a poet
Who walked upon the moon
A scientist who'd tell the world
I'd discovered something new

I might have loved a king
Been the one to end a war
A criminal who drank champagne
And never could be caught

But among your books
Among your clothes
Among the noise and fuss

I've let it go

I can stop and catch my breathe
And Look no further for happiness
And I will not turn again
'Cause my heart has found it's home

Everyone I'll never meet
And the friends I won't now make
The adventures that they could have been
And the risks I'll never take

But among your books
Among your clothes
Among your noise and fuss

I've let it go

I can stop and catch my breathe
And Look no further for happiness
And I will not turn again
'Cause my heart has found it's home

    General Commentwhat a great love song
    the song is about finding the one, and being all she needs, she doesn't need anymore adventures or new people, she has all she needs in her other half

    brilliant!

    General CommentOne of my favourites on the album, along with Northern Skies and It Comes and It Goes.
    And it is:
    "I might have loved a king
    been the to end a war" +
    "I can stop and catch my breath"

    I love the song anyway.

    My InterpretationI am amazed that no one has offered an interpretation yet...
    I think this song may be about motherhood and/or the love of your life.

    Lyric CorrectionI actually think she says "I CAN stop and catch my breath", like she's done with the pursue of happyness and she can finally stop and settle down to her "home"...it makes more sense to me
