It's hard to explain 
Inherently it's just always been strange 
Neither here nor there 
Always somewhat out of place everywhere 
Ambiguous 
Without a sense of belonging to touch 
Somewhere halfway 
Feeling there's no one completely the same 

Standing alone 
Eager to just 
Believe it's good enough to be what 
You really are 
But in your heart 
Uncertainty forever lies 
And you'll always be 
Somewhere on the 
Outside 

Early on, you face 
The realization you don't 
Have a space 
Where you fit in 
And recognize you 
Were born to exist 

Standing alone 
Eager to just 
Believe it's good enough to be what 
You really are 
But in your heart 
Uncertainty forever lies 
And you'll always be 
Somewhere on the 
Outside 

And it's hard 
And it's hard 
And it's hard 

Irreversibly 
Falling in between 
And it's hard
And it's hard
To be understood 
As you are 
As you are

Oh, and God knows 
That you're standing on your own 
Blind and unguided 
Into a world divided 
You're thrown 
Where you're never quite the same 
Although you try, try and try 
To tell yourself 
You really are 
But in your heart uncertainty forever lies 
And you'll always be 
Somewhere on the outside

You'll always be
Somewhere on the outside
Oh
