Staring Down

Album: Collective Soul (Rabbit) (2009)
  • Loosened from my pride
    Oh that monster kept me so tight
    Threw my aces down
    Just to face the here and the now

    So here I'll go again
    I want to please
    Here I'll go again
    A sweet I sleep
    Sweeter I dream

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down
    And your love is what I found

    As cautious as a thief
    Oh but restless with all of my needs
    Now I stand before all I wanted
    And all that I've adored

    So here I go again
    I need to please
    Yeah here I go again
    Sweet you sleep
    Sweeter I dream

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down
    And your love is what I

    Long days, long nights
    Just blinded by what was already in sight
    Now I've found, I've found my way home
    Yeah I found my way home

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down
    And your love is what I found Writer/s: ED ROLAND
