Outside Lyrics

And you bring me to my knees, again
All this time that I could beg you please, in vain
All the times that I felt insecure, for you
And I leave my burdens at the door

I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
Ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All this time that I felt like this won't end
It's for you
And I taste what I could never have
Was from you
All those times that I tried
My intentions
Full of pride
And I waste more time than anyone

I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
Cause inside you're ugly
Ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times that I cried
All this wastin
It's all inside
And I feel all this pain
Stuffed it down
It's back again
And I lie here in bed
All alone
I cant mend but I feel
Tomorrow will be okay

I'm on the outside
I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
Inside you're ugly
Ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

I think this song is about an abusive relationship...how the abuser makes you act out in return to their abusive behavior....how they hold you down emotionally and to keep from totally giving up.. you always think maybe tomorrow will be better

This song to me is saying if your outside of a certain group you want to be in, and you can't make it over the barrier that isn't letting you in, just forget about it and live your life like you did.

feeling alone and tainted and then realizing that everyone else is ugly too... very depressing but extremely true. this song just sums up a lot of problems. it's one of favorites.

There are many ways to look at this song but the apparent one defines who all of us are we lie and cheat our way.

They ask us to cry , to bleed, to open our eyes in this song. I cry. I bleed. i open my eyes. Thank you, Staind.
