Looking For God Lyrics By Blessing Offor

Look at these castles

Look at these walls around

Look as these shackles

Golden chains hold us down

And the party’s so fun now, why would we leave?

The money don’t run out but what does it mean?

Look at these questions, who’s gonna answer me now?

I’ve been looking for God in the strangest places

Looking for God in the back streets

It’s like we forgot who’s friends with the wasted

Left behind in the alleys

I’ve been looking for God ’cause He’s out there

Close to the pain and He’s not scared

It’s “hold back your hair” love

“Show you I care” love

It’s everywhere that they said it’s not

I’ve been looking for God

Looking, looking, looking

Looking, looking, looking

Look at our hearts break

Just trying to hide ourselves

It’s a been a hard rain

And we’re trying to dry ourselves

Everybody’s so chic, shoes in style

Wonder if they’ve walked somebody else’s mile

The answer’s not far away, if we could only try ourselves

I’ve been looking for God in the strangest places

Looking for God in the back streets

It’s like we forgot who’s friends with the wasted

Left behind in the alleys

I’ve been looking for God ’cause He’s out there

Close to the pain and He’s not scared

It’s “hold back your hair” love

“Show you I care” love

It’s everywhere that they said it’s not

I’ve been looking for God

Looking, looking, looking

Looking, looking, looking

I’ve been looking for God

Looking, looking, looking

Looking, looking, looking

A soul scream, a soul scream

You can’t hear the sound of a soul scream

I’ve been looking for God in the strangest places

Looking for God in the back streets

It’s like we forgot who’s friends with the wasted

Left behind in the alleys

I’ve been looking for God ’cause He’s out there

Close to the pain and He’s not scared

It’s “hold back your hair” love

“Show you I care” love

It’s everywhere that they said it’s not

I’ve been looking for God

Looking, looking, looking

Looking, looking, looking

I’ve been looking for God

Looking, looking, looking

Looking, looking, looking
