On the Outside Looking In
by Alison Krauss



You close the door in front of me, I wait patiently outside
And as the minutes tick away I feel my anger rise
And who's the object of my rage, and who's not being fair?
Is it you for your indifference or me for just standing there?

'Cause in my mind the room beyond is bathed in golden light
I dream about you through the day and I toss and turn at night
Sometimes it's hard to understand, when they say that pride's a sin
Should I go or should I stay on the outside looking in

Well I didn't make the grade today and I'm not the only one
But my heart, it won't stop hurting and feeling all alone
Maybe we'll trade places in some not so distant year
I'll hear your voice calling out, and I'll cover up my ears

'Cause in my mind the room beyond is bathed in golden light
I dream about you through the day and I toss and turn at night
Sometimes it's hard to understand, when they say that pride's a sin
Should I go or should I stay on the outside looking in

Well I could brag on the things I've done or the places I have been
But I never found a cure for on the outside looking in
Sometimes it's hard to understand, when they say that pride's a sin
Should I go or should I stay on the outside looking in
