“back when i was young
couldn’t wait to grow up
get away and get out on my own
and looking back now
ain’t it funny how
i’ve been trying to get back home, yeah

when my low self esteem
needs a man loving me
and i find me a perfect catch
then i see my friends
having wild weekends
then i don’t wanna get quite so attached
just as soon as i get what i want
i get unsatisfied
good is good but could be better

i keep looking, i keep looking for
i keep looking for something more
i always wonder what’s on the other side
of the number two door
i keep looking
looking for something more

well, the straight haired girls
they all want curls
and the brunettes wanna be blonde
it’s your typical thing
you got ying you want yang
it just goes on and on
they say, hey, it’s only human
to never be satisfied
well i guess that I’m as human as the next one

oh, i keep looking
i keep looking for
i keep looking for something more
i always wonder what’s on the other side
of the number two door
yeah, i keep looking
looking for something more

just as soon as i get what i want
i get unsatisfied
hey, good is good but could be better

i keep looking
i keep looking for
i keep looking for something more
i always wonder what’s on the other side
of the number two door
i keep looking
looking for something more
oh, looking for something more..”

I wonder why we’re so lacking in the area of contentment… always wanting whatever it is we don’t have. And when we do get whatever it is we think we want.. then suddenly comes a desire for the opposite. I guess it’s just the nature of being human, but all that knowledge does is remind me of why I think every person has that issue, at least at one time or another. It doesn’t make it right. 

Seems likes it’s almost a game. To have more, better, different, etc. Just because it’s not what we’ve already got. 

It all really comes down to a heart issue. Having peace in your heart about where you are and what you have and who you are. Those all are a part of who God created in each of us.

Having that peace inside is important.. but even more than that, the heart issue is all about what we do with Him. Whether we choose to delight in Him above everything else. When that delight is there.. everything else will fall into place.
