In the line from the song ‘Million reasons’ by Lady Gaga, what does look off mean?

Head stuck in a cycle, I look off and I stare.

I searched an English dictionary. There’s no specific definition which I can understand. Can you explain with some examples how to use this term?

1 Answer 1


I found it under off:

  1. away from a place: to run off; to look off toward the west.


In the lyrics you quoted, "I look off and I stare" means:

I stare into the distance and I space out.

The way you might look out of a city bus window in a quasi-hypnotic state.
