"Look At You" as written by and Conner/lanegan/conner....
Her ghost hides
In my mind
In the night
In a way she's haunting me
I'm wanting her still
Through rose colored skies
Or blue, blue moonlight
There's miracles on high
She's walking by

When I look at you I've got a 2nd chance
Really need to have you now
One by one they fall it always breaks me down

The quiet
Cuts me through
The candle burnt
The knife has turned
The pain withers
Alive I know deep inside

When I look at you I've got a second chance
Really need to take it now
One by one they fall it always breaks me down

Her ghost hides
In my eyes
In the night

Her ghost hides
In my mind
In the night
In a way she's haunting me
I'm wanting her still
Through rose colored skies
Or blue, blue moonlight
There's miracles on high
She's walking by

    General CommentHeartbreaking's the word, bansheebeth. You got it right. There's some beautiful imagery though, I think Lanegan is a true poet though I read somewhere he's not a fan of poetry. One of my favorite ST songs... "Traveler" is another masterpiece, IMHO.

    General CommentThis is for sure about someone who has either been rejected by a girl or keeps watching a girl he knows he has zero chance with and hoping that one day the courage will find him to do something about his feelings... We've all been there

    General Commentit's about a guy who was rejected by a girl but can't stop thinking about her anyway and whenever he sees her he hopes he gets another chance to get with her

    General CommentWell.
    This song is really heartbreaking. One of my very best paintings was inspired by it. I was awake in the middle of the night and when I listened to this song I just put it on repeat and painted and painted. It was very releasing. Oh well...
