Looking For Something
Paolo Nutini Lyrics


Another day is washed away
And all alibis are out
And the hand that used to heal me only cursed 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 from a brand new wish from that bucket down the well
And in her colors I find my faith
Cause I remember every word that lady used to say
She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something, leaving with nothing
But souls can't save themselves
Learning to fly, sweet mother of mine!
Be a long home without you
It's just a long way home without you
Yeah, yeah!

That's my mother, like no other
Made me human, made me brother
And it's swelling with blister for my sake and my sisters
The guardian of my karma, keep my feet on terrain firmer
And then release me like a scient to the sky!

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something, leaving with nothing
But souls can't save themselves
Learning to fly, sweet mother of mine!
It's just a long way home

Sister, you have some hungry eyes
And by back you're hypnotized
Smiling faces in disguise
By 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 time you'll fall
After all, you're just blood and bones
And you don't owe no one, oh
No, you don't owe no one
So don't live like one price is right
Cause there is some things in your life that you can't fight!

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

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something, leaving with nothing
But souls can't save themselves
Learning to fly, learning to fly
She said that souls can't save themselves
Learning to fly, learning to fly
Oh souls can't 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

Yesterday I had never heard of Paolo, as of today he made my list of favorite artists

1.) Matt Corby
2.) Josh Garrels
3.) Jeff Buckley
4.) Paolo Nutino
5.) Jack Johnson

List consists of my favorite "solo" artists not bands, although Matt Corby would still be #1 no doubt, if you like Paolo, look up Matt and don't miss out. Also Josh Garrels is a great unique artist that does not fall along the lines of a stereotypical Christian artist (originality).

It has been 5 years Paolo. Keeping with your track record, you should give us an album this year. Love.

Peter Parish

Write your own album bro get to Amsterdam and just blaze and write

I saw an interview talking about iron sky where he said he intentionally had two albums worth at the time of releasing iron sky so that he could release a quick follow up. What a tease.

@Francis Hughes
Is this some wild conspiracy theory?

In 2014 in was working in London.
I got a call telling me to get home to Glasgow asap, as I mother had taken seriously ill.
When I was in Euston station my brother called me to tell me my mother had passed.
I then got on the train for the 400 mile journey home.
I had 5000 tracks on my phone.
As i boarded the train and via my earphones, I pressed shuffle.... this played.
It was a long way home without you Mum.
Thanks Paulo.x.

My mom died last year, my dad in 2012. I moved to Glasgow in 2013 but somehow only discovered Paolo this year. Nevertheless, this song and Autumn are all about my mother and father to me. I listen to them every day since I found them.

It was very sad reading this. I wish you power, strenght!
