Collective Soul - Staring Down Lyrics




Loosened from my pride
Oh, that monster, he kept me so tight
I threw my aces down
Just to face the here and the now

So here I go again, I want to please
Yeah, here I go again, sweet I sleep
Sweeter I dream

I've been looking, I've been staring down
I've been searching, I've been staring down
And your love is what I found

As cautious as a thief
Oh, but restless with all of my needs
Now I stand before all I want
And all that I adore

So here I go again, I need to please
Yeah, here I go again, sweet you sleep
Sweeter I dream

I've been looking, I've been staring down
I've been searching, I've been staring down
And your love is what I

Long days, long nights
Just blinded by what was already in sight
Now I've found, I've found my way home
Yeah, I found my way home

I've been looking, I've been staring down
I've been searching, I've been staring down

I've been looking, I've been staring down
I've been searching, I've been staring down
And your love is what I found

    Mother [email protected]#ker! This is so dam goooood! Rips it right out of me. The real. Real life I think it's put away, but it's the very thing that's paralyzed me. I miss my father, not by choice he was gone 25 years until  I found him. I was 5 and my brother 10. He gave us 50 bucks and said he's got something to take care of in Jersey/New York. Last I remember was the profile of my father and my eyes looking back at me with the first time tears. in his eyes, and watched the red Austin 3000 get smaller as it turned and was gone. 25 years later, in a High security, high rise condo in Lauderdale. I knocked on the locked screen door. The mans voice I haven't heard since that day. Deep and firm, with authority! WHO'S CALLING? Then that profile appeared and turned. My eyes were looking back at me again. I prayed and hoped to see him again, I was 30, but that moment, I was 5. It's your son Papa. Marko?  No, Juliano. I asked him for 10 minutes of his time and if he wanted nothing to do with my brother and I. He'd never see me again. He grabbed me and hugged and kissed my cheek. I thank you Son, You need to know, I'm sorry. For the next 10 years, I got to know the truth, the man, my father who after those ten years became my dad. God bless you Pa Pa. I love you.  I strive to be the man he is . You know what people? I'm in a McDonald's in Newport Beach, I'm walking in my fathers foot steps. I'm getting fucked over by child support, The twisted system. This shit caused me a stroke and a quadruple bypass. I have no help. For those who get angry at the parent mostly fathers. give them a chance. Why? There's not two sides to every story. NO! There's the story, which is what you hear. Then there's the TRUTH! and talk to that parent, ask them. What happened. Then be there for them. It's your parent . Wow. Heavy shit.. God bless

  5. Myingthungo Tungoe

    makes me miss my younger days.

  6. ctmike1 - cell phone concert videos

  7. Taw Nima

    Loosened from my pride
    Oh that monster kept me so tight
    Threw my aces down
    Just to face the here and the now

    So here I'll go again
    I want to please
    Here I'll go again
    A sweet I sleep
    Sweeter I dream

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down
    And your love is what I found

    As cautious as a thief
    Oh but restless with all of my needs
    Now I stand before all I wanted
    And all that I've adored

    So here I go again
    I need to please
    Yeah here I go again
    Sweet you sleep
    Sweeter I dream

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down
    And your love is what I

    Long days, long nights
    Just blinded by what was already in sight
    Now I've found, I've found my way home
    Yeah I found my way home

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down

    I've been looking
    I've been staring down
    I've been searching
    I've been staring down
    And your love is what I found

    For those of you that didn't know this song was released right before Ed'a son Lennon was born.

    I first heard Collective Soul on the Howard Stern show many years ago. I have been a fan since that day and buy all of their cds. This video always makes my eyes tear up. Little boy watching Dad, adulthood, and passing the legacy on to your own child. Plus I am a sucker for rooftop performances!! Collective Soul are an awesome band!!

  10. August McManus

    This band has saved my life over the past 20 years. I Saw them live in Tucson in 96 and have seen them several times since up until the summer of 2016 when I finally met Ed Roland and thanked him in person for many years of soulful music. I received only a smile and a huge/ picture, but it was worth the wait....God Bless this exceptional band and all its patrons

  16. Bill Harrison

    My son played the little kid in the video. So odd seeing him then, and now, at 20.

    Retro Reginald

    Wait if this song came out in 2009 then how would he be 20 in 2017? More like 8... I was born in 1999 and I'm 20 now (in 2019)

  17. GXD Leon

  18. omkar tendulkar

    Best song feeling past meories...!!!

  19. Michael Hart

    Don't get me wrong I like collective soul but the heavier side such as welcome all again better now and there's a way. Can someone point me on the way to the songs that sound like theses i mentioned

    Brian Scowcroft

    check out heavy on dosage, and listen to discipline breakdown and why part 2

    Michael Hart

    Ya I heard heavy I like it hey um if you ever need a real tearjerker for whatever fucking reason look up lzzy hale amy Lee duet

    Jayce Plays

    Why Pt. 2 is one of their best heavier songs. Heavy rocks, Where the River Flows is similarly heavy. See What You Started By Continuing has a great blend of heavy and light, like Contagious and one of my personal favorites, Hurricane (though it’s a bit lighter)

  20. John Marsh

    Great feel good song!

  21. darkness904

    Burton Cummings "Stand Tall" brought me here. Similar.

    mmullen67

    @darkness904 Indeed it is - very much so!

    AD Smith23

    Do you mean lyrically ??

  22. TSIKA

    TSIKA

    @***** realize it's not actually it, but it's pretty damn close

  23. TSIKA

  27. The God of Hentai - Guy Fieri

    one of the sickest bands of the 90s, 00s, and now!

  28. Andre Sihotang

    Man, I thank you very much from this side. I share this experience too. I lost my father last year (I was 28) and I never succeeded in understanding his love and sacrifice to me. As a single son, I was obsessed to make him happy by achieving success in my career and marriage, but I yet to reach what it takes for both of them. That is my greatest regret. Right now I am pursuing Master Degree, to get as high as I can, and hope to get married next year beside my mother, to make him smile in heaven

  29. glitchfan

    Video and sound quality = shit.

  30. R L
