Looking Into You  Jackson Browne

Looking into you ? Jackson Browne (CD: Saturate Before Using)
Time: 6/8
|D |G |D |Bm A |
|G |D A |G |G/A |
Well I [D]looked into a house I once [G]lived in
Around the [D]time I first went on my [Bm]own
When the [A]roads were as [G]many as the places I had [D]dreamed of
And my [A]friends and I were [G]one
Now the [D]distance is [A/C#]done and the [C]search has be[G/B]gun
I've come to [D]see where my be[G]ginnings have [D]gone[A]
Oh the [D]walls and the windows were still [G]standing
And the [D]music could be heard at the [Bm]door
Where the [A]people who [G]kindly endured my odd [D]questions
Asked if [A]I came very [G]far
And when my [D]silence re[A/C#]plied they [C]took me [G/B]inside
Where their [D]children sat [G]playing on the [D]floor[D7]
Well we [G]spoke of the [D]changes that would [G]find us farther [D]on
And it [G]left me so [D]warm and so [A]high
But as I [G]stepped back out[D]side to the [G]grey morning [D]sun
I heard that [F#m]highway [Bm]whisper and [Em/A]sigh
Are you [G]ready to [G/A]fly?
And I [D]looked into the faces all [G]passing by
It's an [D]ocean that will never be [Bm]filled
And the [A]house that grows [G]older and finally [D]crumbles
That even [A]love cannot re[G]build
It's a [D]hotel at [A/C#]best, you're [C]here as a [G/B]guest
You oughta [D]make yourself at home while you're [A]waiting for the rest
Well I [G]looked into dream of the [D]millions
That [G]one day the search will be [D]through
[Bm]Now here I stand at the [F#m]edge of my embattled ill[Em/A]usions
Looking into [G]you[G/A]
|D |G |D |G |
|Bm |F#m |Em/A |G/A |
The [D]great song traveler passed [G]through here
And he o[D]pened my eyes to the [Bm]view
And [A]I was am[G]ong those who called him a [D]prophet
And [A]I asked him what was [G]true
Until the [D]distance had [A/C#]shown how the [C]road remains a[G/B]lone
Now I'm [D]looking in my life for a [A]truth that is my own
Well I [G]looked into the sky for my [D]anthem
And the [G]words and the music came [D]through
[Bm]But words and music can [F#m]never touch the beauty that [Em/A]I've seen
Looking into you[G] - and that?s true
|D |G |D A |G Em/A |D |
