Look Around
Blues Traveler Lyrics


You'll get no answer from me
About what I want of what I get
Brave enough to speak afraid to see
Confuse the issue till you forget

And I've tried
To finally decide
Why
I'm in your face
And if you can't already tell
I am unable to let things go
I'm told I do it very well
But more important you should know

That all the same
You've got no one to blame
But yourself
If you call that a waste

'Cause it ain't me
That's been hurting you inside
And if you've learned
You'll know much more than I

That you're gonna have to go and fine it
You'll have to dig beneath the ground
You'll have to unearth every ugly stone
That kept you on your own
And simply put them down
You're gonna have to look around

You'll get no answer from me
About what I get or what I want
That was enough to make her leave
She's not the first one come and gone

And I don't care
Buyer beware
Of me
Cause it might get rough

If you want peace then live alone
If you want to hide then find a stage
Each a brief but perfect home
To accommodate your rage

And sometimes
In the midst of all my crimes
I feel lost
Or have I lost enough

Remaining friends
Remind me as they say
It's up to you
The things you throw away

And still you're gonna have to go and find it
You'll have to dig beneath the ground
You'll have to unearth every ugly stone
That kept you on your own
And simply put it down
You're gonna have to look around
You're gonna have to look around

You're gonna have to look around

of all the songs I've ever heard, these are my favorite lyrics. As a former performing musician, the line "If you want peace then live alone / if you want to hide then find a stage / each a brief but perfect home / to accommodate your rage" is one of the most intellectual things that has ever been in music. This whole song is worthy of a semester at Cornell. So incredible.

Joshua Kegley

Those lyrics have always had a strong resonance with me.

Easily one of the finest songs yet written. A timeless classic that never fails to pull water from my eyes.

"If you want peace then live alone"... some good stuff right there., John popper is a very underrated song writer

Travis Szudajski

@ryan trout That lyric right there always hits me-

ryan trout

O I agree and I also think he is a phenomenal song writer as well as the very best harmonica player in the world by a long hike...

shadowpony

Underrated song writer and singer, his voice is amazing.

Came here because I was thinking of this lyric today. So many people frustrated by people around them think it'll be better if they move somewhere else, but people will be there too, and you'll have the same problems in a new place. Gotta look inward, people!
