The Outside Lyrics

I didn't know what I would find
When I went looking for a reason, I know
I didn't read between the lines
And, baby, I've got nowhere to go

I tried to take the road less traveled by
But nothing seems to work the first few times
Am I right?

So how can I ever try to be better?
Nobody ever lets me in
I can still see you, this ain't the best view
On the outside looking in

I've been a lot of lonely places
I've never been on the outside

You saw me there, but never knew
That I would give it all up to be
A part of this, a part of you
And now it's all too late so you see

You could've helped if you had wanted to
But no one notices until it's too
Late to do anything

How can I ever try to be better?
Nobody ever lets me in
I can still see you, this ain't the best view
On the outside looking in

I've been a lot of lonely places
I've never been on the outside

Oh, yeah

How can I ever try to be better?
Nobody ever lets me in
And I can still see you, this ain't the best view
On the outside looking in

I've been a lot of lonely places
I've never been on the outside

Taylor, I heart ALL of your lyrics, but my fave lyrics are from the song Invisible. I can totally relate when you totally KNOW that you're made for someone and they don't.

Taylor, I'm so glad I got to see you in concert last year. You and your songs showed me that just because you are a quiet person who uses their brain it doesn't mean you are unloveable. Thank you!
