I'm Just Looking

This song is by Dexys Midnight Runners and appears on the album Searching for the Young Soul Rebels (1980).

You're looking to win it
And not taking it in
Uppers give heart impotence but don't
Tell anything
People are saying
You're losing your feel
Pretend you don't hear

Holed up in white Harlem
Your conscience and you
You might need sympathy but that's not
What I'd tell you
Your winning day's long ago
Don't let it show
Pretend you don't know

You're walking on marble
It's scorching your feet
How can this small-town big-shot boy get
Enough to eat?
People are saying
You're losing your feel
Pretend you don't hear

Holed up in white Harlem
Your conscience and you
You might need sympathy but that's not
What I'd tell you
Your winning day's long ago
Don't let it show
Pretend you don't know

Don't come any closer
Don't come any closer
Don't come any closer

You're looking to win it
Can't quite take it in
Penthouse celebrity, yes but
Watch what you eat
People are saying
You're losing your feel
Pretend you don't hear

Holed up in white Harlem
Your conscience and you
You might need sympathy but that's not
What I'd tell you
Your winning day's long ago
Don't let it show
Pretend you don't know

You're looking to win it
Why not take it in?
