"On The Lookout" as written by and Jim/robertson Creeggan....
On the lookout
The wind stopped
We chose this spot
To begin

When we looked out
The waves crashed
Smashing our past
Moving fast
Nothing lasts
Make it last

This all will pass
Just like us
Just like this spot
Don't miss this
We've only got one shot

Hold on to this rock face
It's dried and cracked
But grab on
Don't wait long
Longing to
Look out for you

This all will pass
Just like us
Just like this spot
Don't miss this
We've only got one shot

On the lookout
On the lookout
On the lookout
On the lookout

    General CommentI think Jim Creeggan may have the most underrated voice out there.

    It's an analogy of the time when a couple realizes that they want to spend the rest of their lives together, compared with an adventure-type scenario. You get the impression he thinks of their single lives as boats, and they came together, sailed together, and eventually the wind (desire to look elsewhere) brought them to "the lookout." That's where they decide to "look out" towards their future and come together for good. The commitment they both realize they're making has them look back to see their pasts of being apart, lonely, etc, dashed by waves and wind. And from there, it just moves so fast through the stages of love.

    The whole bit about the rockface makes me think of the years after one is married. Tough to hang on to what you have, but in the end he recommits to caring for her.
