staring down lyrics – collective soul

“staring down”

loosened from my pride
oh, that monster, he kept me so tight
i threw my aces down
just to face the here and the now

so here i go again, i want to please
yeah, here i go again, 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 want
and all that i adore

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
