    "Lookin' In" Lyrics

    Bobbie Gentry

    Can't seem to settle down
    Maybe I'll just hang around
    But every time you pick me up
    I guess I take you down
    But here I am again
    You'll take me back and then
    It won't be long till I'll be gone
    Upon my way again

    So I spend my days thinkin' up new ways
    To do the same old thing
    Seasons come and go without a name

    And I spend my nights in the bright spotlights
    Wishin' I could let the people know
    Can't win or lose unless you play the game

    Sittin' in the airport, awaitin' on my plane
    Nothin' to do for an hour or two
    So I try to find a message in a picture I drew
    In the corner of a letter from a boy I knew

    Off the plane and through the rain into a limousine
    The traffic's slow so I miss my show
    But lookin' out the window somehow I know
    That they're about to play my record
    On the radio

    So I write another song as I go along
    To let you know just where I been
    Don't want to meet myself at the masquerade

    You can tell in the verse if I get worse
    By the chorus I may be fine
    A line, my friend, can end the kind charade

    Layin' in my hotel room, wantin' to be alone
    Needin' the time to rest my mind
    But they bring in another stack of papers to sign
    And L.A.'s awaitin' on the other line

    So I'm packin' up and I'm checking out
    I'm on the road again
    Feeling like I'm bringing pen to mind
    But the words will come to me in their own time
    Tumbling and stumbling over in rhyme

    And the ugliest word that I ever heard
    My friends, is sacrifice
    It's an easy out for all you should have been
    And if there's one thing
    That I just can't bring myself to compromise
    It's blamin' somebody else for the state I'm in
    Oh, but then again
    Daddy never loved his baby girl, no how
    Ah, what's the difference now
