Whitney Houston – I Look To You lyrics

As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
I'm lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I've been through
Who on earth can I turn to

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

Yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

After losing my breath
There's no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door

And every road that I've taken
Lead to my regret
And I don't know if I'm gonna make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

I look to you
I look to you

Yeah

And when all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

Oh yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

(my levee's have broken, my walls have come)

Coming down on me

(crumbling down on me)

All the rain is falling

(the rain is falling, defeat is calling)

Set me free

(i need you to set me free)

Take me far away from the battle
I need you
Shine on me

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength has gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you

Yeah

I look to you
Oooooooh
I look to you

    I lost my Mother about 2 years ago, and lately I have been going through a very hard time. Thank God that she taught me about God and his son Jesus, but I really felt like I had no one on Earth that I could trust since she was gone. Last night I dreamth that I was sionging this song to my Mother, and I sang it to her with such force, admiration and love. My Mother listened with intensity, and when I had finished singing to her she ran to me and held me in her arms with such intense that I woke up in tears. After I had wiped the tears from my eyes; I felt a new sense of strength, and love. I know now that my Mother is looking over me, and is with me in spirit. Thank you are Kelly for creating a medium in which my Mother was able to communicate with me.

    I truly believe that this song is a true testiment to whitney's mindset at the time; while her lefe and career were both once again on the mends. Through these lyrics she becomes transparent to the rest of the world; displaying all the emotional turmoil that she was experiencing. She let us know that inspite of everything, she never gave up on her faith and the fact the god had not foresaken her. Truly, she loved the lord!

    I bought whitney's album when it first surfaced. Because of her untimely demise, this song is even more close to the heart. I found myself weeping because the song seems so prophetic concerning her life, her struggles, her battles and finally her death. God help us to live our lives that would bring you glory and would testify to a life of righteous legacy. She left her mark on the universe. What are we leaving behind?

    Feeling hurt and pain can sometimes take you to a place that only you can go. In order to get out, we cry out for the intimate help from our god. This song simply sums it up, she had given it to god and she was telling him that she wasn't strong enough to endure life without him. I wish she could have kept hanging on. Lisa rip whitney - we will never forget the sound of your voice.
