"The Power of the Heart (Lou Reed cover)" as written by and Lou Reed....
You look for sun and I look for rain
We're different people, we're not the same
The power of the sun

I looked for treetops, you looked for caps
Above the water, where the waves snap back
I flew around the world to bring you back
Ah, the power of the heart

You looked at me and I looked at you
The sleeping heart was shining through,
The wispy cobwebs that we're breathing through
The power of the heart

I looked at you and you looked at me
I thought of the past, you thought of what could be
I asked you once again to marry me
The power of the heart

Everybody says love makes the world go round
I hear a bubbling and I hear a sound
Of my heart beating and I turn around

And find you standing at the door
You know me I like to dream a lot
Of this and that and what is not
And finally I figured out what was what

It was the power of the heart
You and me we sweat and strain
The result is always the same
You think somehow we're in a game
The power of the heart
The power of the heart

I think I'm dumb, I know you're smart
The beating of a purebred heart
I say this to you and it's not a lark
Marry me today

You know me I like to dream a lot
Of what there is and what there's not
But mainly I dream of you a lot
The power of your heart
The power of the heart

    General Commentwhat exactly means "I look at treetops, you look for caps" english is not my first language and i think it might be a problem of dictionary but it also can be a metaphor

    TranslationI appreciate that from both of you, and yes it's sad that "you look for sun i look for rain. to show how they aren't looking for the same thing" part that you explained.
