Shawn Phillips – Lookin' Up Lookin' Down lyrics

I keep lookin' down out of my windows at the people below
So slow
I keep lookin' down out of my windows at the people below
Lordy, go slow

Sure would like to know what you been thinkin'
But I don't want to know when you been sinkin'
Go slow
Yeah, sure would like to know what you been thinkin'
But I don't want to know when you been sinkin'
Go slow

You see yourself in a coffee cup
But you cannot stimulate the future up
Go slow
You see yourself in a coffee cup
But you cannot stimulate the future up
Go slow

Every time I'm doin' a number
I'm thinkin' that I see your eyes
I keep crossing over borderlines
Seein' little babies die

And even though I'm economizing
I can't keep your high livin' style child
It takes so long to believe it Charlie
But what have you done to your smile

I keep lookin' down out of my windows at the people below
So slow
I keep lookin' down out of my windows at the people below
Lordy, so slow

The alternative to truth is hypocrisy
If you want to choose the latter you won't never be free
Go slow
The alternative to truth is hypocrisy
If you want to choose the latter you won't never be free
Go slow

Ain't no such thing as revolution
It's got another name
It's called evolution
Go slow

Ain't no such thing as revolution
It's got another name
It's called evolution
Go slow

Part of being free is a state of mind
You just got to learn to leave it all behind
Go slow
Part of being free is a state of mind
You just got to learn to leave it all behind
Go slow
