about

I wrote this song about looking to God to validate who you are as a person

lyrics

Why do I look to you for my validation?
Why do I search in your face and I hold on every word just like it's
A life raft in the middle of the sea
I look to you but never to me
Why do I look to you for my validation?
Why do I look to you?
Oh oh oh

Why do I look to you when I know that I'm alright the way I am?
Why do I search in your face?
Why do I let you tell me how to feel?
Why do I look to you to my, for my validation
Why do I look to you to find out who I am?
Why do I look to you? Oh oh oh

Heard a voice in the middle of my soul
Checked a couple times to see that I'm in control
It isn't madness, but he said to me
That it is love that defines who I am
Oh it is love that defines who I am

And so I look to you to get what I need
And I will search in your face and I'll hold on every word
Because you're my life raft in the middle of the sea
I'll look to you but never to me
I will look to you for my validation

And the ones who try to bring me down will have to come against
The one who put me, put me here in the first place
And I wish you joy I wish you luck
I wish you all the best,
But hey, I get what I need from the best of the very best
And so I look to you to get what I need

And I will search in your face
And I'll hold on every word because you're my life raft
In the middle of the sea
Oh yeah to find out who I am
Oh yeah to find out who I am
I will look to you
