Caroline Polachek - Look At Me Now Lyrics

Wrote myself a letter
Just a single question
When you finally get this
Where will you be?
Will you be a shipwreck or a star
Falling for a boy who doesn't play guitar?
Now rewind the tape back to the start
Said I'd never leave you, but here we are

And you can't look at me now
I haven't changed, I'm still the same
But you can't look at me now
A hand grenade to throw away

Now my friends all tell me
"Girl, you're getting skinny
Have you not been sleeping?"
How could I be?
Trying to find the lightswitch in the dark
Burying the good girl I know I'm not
Now rewind the tape back to the start
Said I'd never leave you, but here we are

And you can't look at me now
I haven't changed, I'm still the same
But you can't look at me now
A hand grenade to throw away

I can't run anymore
Gotta stay right here and face the storm
I can't run anymore
Where the wakeup call is all I know
I can't run anymore
(I can't run anymore)
Gotta stay right here and face the storm
I can't run anymore
(I can't run anymore)

You can't look at me now
I haven't changed, I'm still the same
But you can't look at me now
A hand grenade to throw away
Look at me now
(I can't run anymore)
You can't look at me now
(I can't run anymore)

Caroline Polachek Look At Me Now Comments
  1. Damian Hernandez

    I’m astonished by her vocals!!

  2. Talya Cold

    modern elven music <3

  3. Chris Joosten

    Yea, this girl here is the real deal. The pre-chorus takes me somewhere. Definitely somewhere, and its good.

  4. Rae Quinn

    Reminds me of Imogen Heap but still your own style for sure, great work thinking about seeing the show in DTX

  5. Patrick-P _Gibson-G

    0:54 just the way she hits that note genuinely makes my life feel that much more fulfilled. What a voice!

  6. Nikos Bohème

    What is this instrument she holds in the picture?

    Chris Joosten

    It's a Martin Backpacker. It's the same as a regular guitar (6 strings, same tuning), but I dont think it has an official worldly name, like a eukalele or mandolin. It looks like it does because it's meant for travelling (hence the name). ;) Hope this helps!

  7. Amanda M.

    Why does this song make me so emotional 😭😭

  8. Tim Slattery

    This aint Chris Brown...

  9. Oliver Smit

    This song is like a warm hug and in fact the entire album of Pang is! Easily became one of my favorite artists in a really long time .

  10. Michael Chukinas

    If you are not just a dream... then here take this.. I am now a shadow.

  11. Michael Chukinas

    See what I see , fingers \/ birds are our friends. Love you my cle.

  12. day6creation breathing

    Compared to others they look "obtuse"
    While your form alone makes a grandure impression that idealy "something something word word"
    Cant exspain it
    A no bullshit impression maybe is what im thinking for now.

  13. Michael Chukinas You better get ready while your panties drip, or go play with your coloring book.

  14. Michael Chukinas

    PatrickReza - Take Me Away (ft. Jilian)

  17. Michael Chukinas

  18. Michael Chukinas

    mind going faster , burying the good girl in my heart. is what I am signing.

  19. Michael Chukinas

    skinny is smaller

  20. Michael Chukinas

    Can and can switching around.

  21. Michael Chukinas

    Look at me now but I am singing look at us now. when doing this with anyone slow down and speak what they say at there pace even though the words do not make sense.

  22. Michael Chukinas

    Who am I... I am Kyluke, I am Kencade, I am Charoum... If dos seeks me with evil in your eyes then expect a fight... I am naut Ryuke, not, not yet.

  67. Kaimac95

    wow this is gorgeous! love the odd time signature

  68. Jim Penola

    It sometimes takes me years to hear or look up lyrics – my brain is kinda hardwired to take in the sonic totality of a song, and that means missing the words quite often. With that said, some of the lyrics in "Look At Me Now" struck me instantly before even watching this video.

    Caroline's words have helped me get through some of my worst times and will clearly continue to. <3

  69. brainwashboi123

    I found you about a week ago and I’m impressed by the skill you have as a musician and artist in general.
