About Outlaw

"Outlaw" is a song written by Tim Kellett and Robin Taylor-Firth and performed by Olive on their 1996 album Extra Virgin. It was released as the follow-up to the group's number one single You're Not Alone. The single charted at number fourteen in the UK Singles Chart. The lyric concerns a woman's discovery that her boyfriend has been sleeping with another man. The main chorus couplet - "Couldn't you have told me before? / I would have loved you so much more" - suggests that her problem is not so much that her boyfriend is gay or bisexual, but simply that he lied to her about himself, and that under other circumstances they could have been good friends.

[Verse 1 ]
Two faces 
Playing with my trust in you 
You cover all your traces 
And watch me relax with you 
Insidious 
Creep away and do your deal 
Return what you think is you 
It couldn't be further from the truth 

[Bridge:]
(So) cruel, 
Keeping this a secret 
Fool, you surely are 
It's so You, 
Blind to all the damage done 
You go too far 

Chorus:
Couldn't you have told me before 
I would have loved you, So much more 
Couldn't you have told me before 
Feeling like an outlaw 

Verse 2 
So you got some 
You brought another person 
Uncanny how he looks like you 
Except there is too much he cannot do 
It's not the problem 
But the way you shut your mouth was real low 
My reputation tainted 
I will not accept being the last to know 

[Repeat Bridge&Chorus * 2]
