Wherever I Go

OneRepublic has a new single out and I like it. Lead singer Ryan Tedder says the song is about obsession maybe even “almost an unnatural, unhealthy level of obsession, is what the song is about. But it feels very, to me – like we were looking for..”

Even beyond the direct reference to praying for this feeling, I wonder if the song speaks of deeper redemptive realities… hear for yourself

I know I could lie but I’m telling the truth
(Wherever I go there’s a shadow of you…)
I know I could try looking for something new
But wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you…

Some people lie but they’re looking for magic
Others are quietly going insane
I feel alive when I’m close to the madness
No easy love could ever make me feel the same

I know I could lie, but I won’t lie to you
Wherever I go, you’re the ghost in the room
I don’t even try looking for something new
Cause wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you

Some people try but they can’t find the magic
Others get down on their knees and they pray
I come alive when I’m close to the madness

(No easy love could ever make me feel the same…)
Make me feel the same
Make me feel the same, same, same

I know I could lie but I’m telling the truth
Wherever I go there’s a shadow of you
I know I could try looking for something new
But wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you
Wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you, you

Some people pray to their God for some magic
Cause no easy love could ever make them feel the same
No easy love could ever make me feel the same
Make me feel the same, same, same

I know I could lie but I’m telling the truth
Wherever I go there’s a shadow of you
I know I could try looking for something new
But wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you

You think it’s a lie when I’m telling the truth
Wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you
Wherever I go, I’ll be looking for you
Looking for you, looking for you, ah
