"Looking Out" as written by Brandi M. Carlile, Timothy Jay Hanseroth and Phillip John Hanseroth....
I went out looking for the answers and never left my town.

I'm no good at understanding, but I'm good at standing ground.
And when I asked a corner preacher I couldn't hear him for my youth.
Some people get religion some people get the truth.
I never get the truth, I never get the truth.

I know the darkness falls on you. And it's just a point of view
When you're outside looking in you belong to someone and when
You feel like giving in and the coming of the end, like your
Heart can break in two, someone loves you.

I lay this suitcase on my chest so I can feel somebody's weight.
And I lay you to rest just to feel a give and take?
I got a new interpretation and it's a better point of view, you
Were looking for a landslide I was looking out for you, I was
Looking out for you, someone's looking out for you

I know the darkness falls on you.
And it's just a point of view
When you're outside looking in you belong to someone and when
You feel like giving in and the coming of the end,
Like your heart can break in two, someone loves you.

I am afraid of crossing lines.
I am afraid of flying blind.
Afraid of inquiring minds.
Afraid of being left behind.

I close my eyes I think of you, I take a step I think of you,
I catch my breath I think of you, I cannot rest I think of you

My one and only wrecking ball, and you're cutting through my walls.
When you're outside looking in you belong to someone and
When you feel like giving in and the coming of the end,
Like your heart could break in two, someone loves you.

    General CommentI'm not sure that this one needs a ton of 'interpretation'. It's pretty straight-forward. Anyone else have some deep, hidden meaning in here?

    General CommentWell I'm not sure if it's a religious thing or a cheer up song to a distressed love interest, but my favorite line is "While you were looking for a landslide, I was looking out for you"

    Stevie Nicks-- The reflection on the snow covered hill until the landslide comes and erases you. While this person was looking for their own reflection and attempting self-preservation, Brandi (or whomever) was looking out for them.
