Greyson Chance – Waiting Outside The Lines lyrics

You'll never enjoy your life,
Living inside the box
You're so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?

Rules and regulations,
Force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
It's time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
And looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
The time is now

I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I'm waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
Even if it's just tonight
How you gonnna walk ahead
If you keep living blind

Stuck in the same position,
You deserve so much more
There's a whole world around us,
Just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
And looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
The time is now, just let it go

The world will force you to smile
I'm here to help you notice the rainbow
Cause I know,
What's in you is out there

I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I'm waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I'm trying to be patient (I'm trying to be patient)
The first step is the hardest (the hardest)
I know you can make it,
Go ahead and take it

I'm Waiting, waiting, just waiting I'm waiting
I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting
I'm waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

You'll never enjoy your life
Living inside the box
You're so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?

    Step outside of the box. Be the your self. Show others how you feel. Believe in yourself and love. Don't be afraid to speak up. Lift your head up and put a smile on your face and be happy about your life. Don't thinking you are not worth it, that you aren't the special person that everyone has wait for. Be your self being ourselfs is the one what deep down in your heart says. Explore what you want in life in a good choice :)

    Don't be afraid to be who you are, to take chances, to follow your dreams. It might be difficult at first, but once you've taken that first step, you'll be glad you've stepped out of the box. When he says he's "waiting outside the lines" I think he's saying he's waiting for you to come with him outside of the box and take a chance cuz ur still inside the lines.

    I think the song is about those people who are feeling down, unconfident to their selves, then oneday theres a one person who came to that person and tell them that they are free and realize how life is fun, and the line"im here to help you notice the rainbow" is the guy is helping the poor person to realize that after all the sad moments that he been crossing theirs a good and beatiful things that are in outside. So the message here in the sone is, don't be afraid of anything, live like its the fullest, your goal is just waiting for you :)

    Well it means that a lot of people out there could be famous there talents are extraordinary but they're to shy are scared to try and get known. It tells people to "have no regrets," and that "theres a whole world around us, waiting to be explored" the song is saying go for your dreams, don't be afraid, just go for it and that's exactly what greyson did with his talent. He performed at a school talent show and now look at him. He has his own album and he's been on the ellen show and on so random. He went for his dreams and now hes telling others that they should too. This is an amazing song that has a very deep meaning to it and I love it!

    Grey grey's exact words: waiting outside the lines is a song about getting over your troubles, fears, and anxieties. The main theme of the song is just to be confident and free! I remember when I first heard the song I instantly loved it. I really liked it 'cause it was very universal and big. I love performing this song at my live show because all the kids wave their hands back and forth. And there's always the one person with a lighter! This is one of my favorite records from the album.
