    Lyrics »

I'm sitting on the outside.
Hope you're satisfied.
Don't know what you're thinking -
Your tricky eyes are winking.
All of the trails that you put me through.
Times that I cried - I didn't know what to do!
Tried to ignore the lovers that you had
I tried to fool myself it wasn't all too bad.
Now I'm on the outside
Looking for the inside.
Looked to you for something
And now you give me nothing.

I been checking round -
So listen what I found!
Someone in my back door -
Can't take any more!
All of the places you said you would be
All of the stories you're telling to me
Got me believing excuses were true.
I find out you've got somebody new.
I'm sitting on the ourside
Looking at the inside,
Nothing I can say -
You got to go your way.
Take me a plane - Get back on my feet -
Make a new life - I want no repeat -
Cheating around - You drove me away -
It's over now - Got no more to say -
Cheating around - Always on the make -
Going away - It's more than I can take.

Sitting on the outside
Taking me a ride.
Sick of your deceiving,
You had me all believing.
All of your loving behind my back -
Running around to someone else's shack.
Now I discover things i didn't know -
You made me a fool and now I got to go.
It's time i got to moving
In a new direction -
Want to find the inside,
Come on in from outside.
