"Looking Up" as written by and Hayley Nichole/farro Williams....
Things are looking up, oh finally!
I thought I'd never see the day
When you smile at me.
We always pull through, oh when we try,
I'm always wrong but you're never right.
Oh you're never right!

Honestly, can you believe
We crossed the world while it's asleep?
I'd never trade it in, 'cause I've always wanted this!
And it's not a dream anymore!
No. It's not a dream anymore!
It's worth fighting for.

Could have given up so easily
I was a few cheap shots away from the end of me
Taken for granted, almost everything that I would have died for
Just yesterday,
Just yesterday

Honestly, can you believe
We crossed the world while it's asleep?
I'd never trade it in, 'cause I've always wanted this!
It's not a dream anymore!
Oh. It's not a dream anymore!
It's worth fighting for.

God knows the world doesn't need another band, (whoa, whoa!)
But what a waste it would've been! (whoa, whoa!)
I can't believe we almost hung it up (whoa, whoa!)
We're just getting started (whoa, whoa!)

Honestly, can you believe
We crossed the world while it's asleep?
I'd never trade it in, 'cause I've always wanted this!
It's not a dream anymore!
Oh. It's not a dream anymore!
It's worth fighting for.

I can't believe we almost hung it up!(whoa whoa)
We're just getting started! (whoa whoa)
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

    Song MeaningThis is word by word out of Hayley William's song lyric journal. This is the meaning she wrote for this song.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Last year when we canceled our "U.K Riot" tour and went home. I didn't know if we'd even get back on the road. I sort of thought we'd run our course and it was over. All because of failed relationships...friendships. We stopped caring about each other. I started playing music for a living instead of living for playing music. I also reached outside my circle of friends (the band) for acceptance and the hope I could find people to really relate to. I needed real friends-not forced ones. That's when it became really hard. NO one understand each other anymore. Somehow between then and now, we've grown up a little bit. I've realized it's not bad that I'm an individual. We all have our own thing and now that we got it, "I can't beleive we almost hung it up, we're just getting started"

    My InterpretationListening to a song like this just brings a smile on your face. Not only is it a true story but there's a lot of hope and triumph, you can just HEAR it.
