"The Look" as written by and Joseph Patrick Mount....
You're up and you'll get down
You never running from this town
Kinda think you said
You'll never get anything better than this
'Cause you're going round in a circle
And everyone knows you're trouble
'Cause you read it in a big book
And now you're giving me the look look
But just remember how we shook shook
And all the things we took took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

Get up and we get down
We're always running round this town
And to think they said
We'd never make anything better than this
'Cause we're always in small circles
And everyone thinks we're trouble
We didn't read it in the big book
And now we're giving you the look look
Just remember how we shook shook
And all the things we took took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

    General CommentThis song to me is speaking of youth.
    All the lines of running around the town, causing trouble, dancing, reminds me of living during your prime.
    "Kinda think you said
    You'll never get anything better than this"
    As in this is the best time of our lives
    "This time's the oldest friend of mine"
    The memory of our youth will be our best friend.

    My Interpretation"And now you're giving me the look look
    But just remember how we shook shook"
    The preciousness and fragility of infatuation when you're young, and how a look can mean so much more than a look.
