"Just Looking" as written by Kelly Jones, Stuart Cable and Richard Mark Jones....
There's things I want
There's things I think I want
There's things I've had
There's things I want to have
Do I want the dreams
The ones we're forced to see
Do I want the perfect wife
The word perfect ain't quite right
Shopping every day
Take it back the next break
They say the more you fly the more you
Risk your life
I'm just looking I'm not buying
I'm just looking keeps me smiling
A house I seen another could'a been
You drenched my head and said what I said
You said that life is what you make of it
Yet most of us just fake
I'm just looking, I'm not buying
I'm just looking, keeps me smiling

    General Commentwhy havent more people commented on this song? it has a pretty simple meaning, to me anyway, its about not being sure of what you want in life and all these people telling you what to do. you grow up with security and an image of all these things we should be doing, and sometimes its scarier to break away from the 'norm' and do what you want to, rather than follow every1 else into a dead end job. thats how i see it anyway!! im doin my as levels and have decided it isnt what i want to do so am quitting to go to college and study art and music. i cant wait! xxx

    General Commenthere kelly is basically saying that everyone in life has so many expectations and dreams, and everyone is always looking for something better than they already have, whether it be something material or a partner. thats wot keeps everyone happy and content, the fact they think something better is gonna come along!!

    General Commentcan't believe no one's commented on this song!
    It's so great. Stereophonics are so great.
    I was thinking about this song when it was on television the other day and it just kinda clicked what it meant, like, about the things in life that you can have..he's just looking at them, he's not buying them just yet and he's happy that he's not buying them yet cause he's not ready.
    Long live kelly Jones.

    General Commentthis is probly my favorite stereophonics song, what i take from it is that he is thinking about the things in life he always wanted, but isnt getting upset by not having them. it just makes him happy to think about them, but kelly is still happy and satsified with his life.

    General CommentIts about being in love with someone and they dont know and never will...the word perfect aint quite right as you know it never will be perfect as you can never be with that person. But as long as you can see that person its enough for you (keeps me smiling) cos u love them so much..
