If you were on the outside
watching the world from far away,
if you could see the things I saw,
you’d see things my own way.
If you could view the world like me
we’d watch on my T.V.
And maybe, maybe then I’d feel
a little less lonely
If you could walk a mile,
a mile in my shoes,
you’d see the world and understand
I’ve got it all to lose.
If you could see the world without
a filter or a screen
you’d keep your thoughts inside your head
and see just what I mean
to say that I am watching,
I am living and I’m learning,
but all the while these empty thoughts
Sometimes it’s a little lonely being an outsider
