Bob Seger - Lookin Back (Studio) Lyrics


You hit the street, you feel them staring
You know they hate you you can feel their eyes a glarin'
Because you're different, because you're free
Because you're everything deep down they wish they could be
You're lookin back (lookin back) they're lookin back (lookin back)
Too many people lookin back
You're lookin back (lookin back) they're lookin back (lookin back)
Too many people lookin back
They watch the news, see young men dying
They watch them bleedin' and listen to them lyin'

And if they're normal if they can see
They just reach out and change the channel on the TV
When they could vote, and end the war
They're much too busy fittin' locks upon the back door
Give you a foxhole, a place to hide
Cause when the war come the cops'll be on their side
