Michael Ball – With One Look lyrics

With one look I can break your heart
With one look I play every part
I can make your sad heart sing
With one look you'll know all you need to know

With one smile I'm the guy next door
All the love that you've hungered for
When I speak, it's with my soul
I can play any role

No words can tell the stories my eyes tell
Watch me when I frown, you can't write that down
You know I'm right, it's there, black and white
When I look your way, y'all hear what I say

Yes, with one look I put words to shame
Just one look sets the screen aflame
Silent music starts to play
One tear in my eye makes the whole world cry

With one look they'll forgive the past
They'll rejoice, I returned at last
To my people in the dark
Still out there in the dark

Silent music starts to play
With one look you'll know all you need to know
With one look I'll ignite the blaze
I'll return to my glory days

They'll say, "Look, who's back at last"
This time I'm staying, I'm staying for good
And I'll be back where I was born to be
With one look I'll be me

    He is saying that if somebody were to look at a person once then they can see any thing in them. They know nothing about them so therefore they could be anything that someone could imagine them to be therefore meaning that they can be what that person wants them to be.
