Lyrics: Outside Looking In

Been here so long, my beautiful friend
Hate to let you go
But now it seems we’ve come to the end
Here’s the last to know

You stood between, I fell behind
Reaching from the outside
Behind the scenes, you turned out my mind
Dancing in the twilight

All that you got from me, I gave up so easily
But you don’t let me play my hand

You pull the string that holds me tight
Knocked me down when I looked right
Laid to waste another night
Waiting to begin

Come out my love wherever you are
Darling, can you hear me
Find out find out we’ve come so far
Still you’re nowhere near me

Say what you want to say
Step inside or drift away
I’ll never make you understand\

You pull the string that holds me tight
Laid to waste another night
Waiting to begin

Dig out what we both denied
Buried under wasted pride
Searching from the other side
The outside looking in

And it’s alright, even as you fail me now, I’ll be waiting anyhow
I will see it through
Seems I’ve waited for a thousand years, held on to the souveniers
They take me back to you

And it’s alright, even as you fail me now, I’ll be waiting anyhow
I will see it through
Seems I’ve waited for a thousand years, pack up all the souveniers
Take them back to you

You pull the string …
