Looking for Someone

This song is by Genesis and appears on the album Trespass (1970).

Looking for someone
I guess I'm doing that
Trying to find a memory in a dark room
Dirty man, you're looking like a Buddha
I know you well

Keep on a straight line
I don't believe I can
Trying to find a needle in a haystack
Chilly wind, you're piercing like a dagger
It hurts me so

Nobody needs to discover me - I'm back again
You see the sunlight through the trees to keep you warm
In peaceful shades of green
Yet in the darkness of my mind
Damascus wasn't far behind

Lost in a subway
I guess I'm losing time
There's a man looking at a magazine
You're such a fool, your mumbo-jumbo never tells me anything

Nobody needs to discover me - I'm back again
You feel the ashes from the fire that kept you warm
Its comfort disappears
But still the only friend I know
Would never tell me where I go

Looking for someone
And now I've found myself a name
Come away, leave me
All that I have I will give
Leave me, leave me
All that I am I will give
