LOOKING FOR SOMETHING
Paolo Nutini


Now the dirt is washed away
And all alibis are out
And the hands that used to heal me only curse me now
The echoes of a woman so kind
Rain like waterfalls and ice-cream on my worried mind
I lay there in the puddle of myself
Fishing for a brand new wish from that bucket down the well
And in her colours I find my faith
Cause I remember every word that lady used to say

She said hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something leaving with nothing
But souls can save themselves
Learning to fly sweet mother of mine!
Be a long way home without you
It's such a long way home without you
Yeah yeah

Miss my mother like no other
Made me human made me brother
Hands would swell and they would blister for my sake and my sisters
The guardian of my karma keep my feet on terra firma
And then release me like a scion to the sky!

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something leaving with nothing
But souls can save themselves
Learning to fly sweet mother of mine!
This heart can tell sometime

Sister you have some hungry eyes
Can bite back you're hypnotized
Smiling faces in disguise
Can bite back you're hypnotized
Keep going against the grain
And soon that's all soon that's all you'll know
And soon that's all you'll know
And let's get this straight
Sometimes you'll rise and there's times you'll fall
After all you're just blood and bones
And you don't owe no one nothing
No you don't owe no one
So don't live like one price is right
Cause there's some things in your life that you can fight!

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something wind up with nothing
But souls can save themselves
Learning to fly sweet mother of mine!
Of mine

She said hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something leaving with nothing
But souls can save themselves
Learning to fly learning to fly
She said that souls can save themselves
Learning to fly learning to fly
Oh souls can save themselves
Learning to fly learning to fly
Oh momma how I love you!
Learning to fly learning to fly
No momma how I love you
Learning to fly sweet mother of mine!

We're a long way home without you
