The Look Of Love



Lyrics

Should have left you standing right where you stood
Should have let you go
Should have had the sense to know
Like a train you'd come
And I'd lose my place
Now I'm on this trip
I took a fall from grace

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
From the eyes of pride
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone

I've had a map laid out
From the day I was born
But the roads are blocked
And the paper is worn
And all the books I've read
And the things I know
Never taught me to laugh
Never taught to let go

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
From the eyes of pride
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone

My conscience is clear, I know right from wrong
That's a lie, I know nothing except that you're gone
But there's more to learn from the look in your eyes
That trip round this world, the stars in the sky

Now all the books I've read
And the things I know
Never taught me to live
Never taught me to let go

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
From the eyes of pride
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
Lord knows I've tried
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone

(Nowhere to hide)
(No place to run)
(Nowhere to hide)
(No place to run)
(Nowhere to hide)

Tour

This song brought a great intimate moment to the Who's That Girl Tour. Madonna is all alone in the spotlight. As she's walking around on stage, she seems completely lost, like Niki when she strolls alone through the city (in the movie). At the end she's struggling against the conveyor belt that in the end takes her along.
