Genesis – Looking For Someone lyrics

Looking for someone, I guess Im doing that,
Trying to find a memry in a dark room.
Dirty man, youre looking like a buddha,
I know you well - yeah.

Keep on a straight line, I dont believe I can,
Trying to find a needle in a haystack.
Chilly wind youre piercing like a dagger,
It hurts me so - yeah.

Nobody needs to discover me,
Im back again.
You see the sunlight through the
Trees to keep you warm,
In peaceful shades of green.
Yet in the darkness of my mind
Damascus wasnt far behind.

Lost in a subway, I guess Im losing time,
Theres a man looking at a magazine.
Youre such a fool, your mumbo-jumbo
Never tells me anything - yeah.

Nobody needs to discover me,
Im back again.
You feel the ashes from the
Fire that kept you warm.
Its comfort disappears,
But still the only friend I know
Would never tell me where I go.

Looking for someone,
And now Ive found myself a name.
Come away, leave me,
All that I have I will give.
Leave me, leave me,
All that I am I will give.
