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.

    Whitney. You turned to him through song for help and I truely feel he answered you. I'm not a believer myself but listing to this song and admiring your voice for so long, listening to your words. He truely answered the hidden messages you wrote for him within this song. What an amazing contribution you made to music. A truely inspiration woman. I will never forget you. May you rest in peace.

    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 went through so much trying to find the peieces to feel whole for years and I finally found my faith and that is the only thing that kept me going and ultimately it made me feel complete when I began an intimate relationship with god, in this song I believe it's saying that, you can't take on the world alone so trust god to lead you, specifically when you feel you have nothing left of your self to give, open your heart, let go and let god.

    Cissy should have used ' I look at you' as ms. Houston casket was taken out to the heavens, instead of ' I will aways love you 'i feel this was whitney's true feelings and love. However, cissy still needs what would be in her own interst, if you know what I mean. And I just want to add, god bless ms. Crawford. You are and always be a true friend!
