I can't get your attention
And I'm so sick of it
I've got something to say to you
So shut up, and listen

I don't want you to look past me
I want you to know who I am
I hate it when you ignore me
You just don't understand

BRIDGE :
See the funny thing is
You're just as useless as me
I can make you better
If you would just let me in

CHORUS :
I'm outside of you
And I can't get through
Overlooking the beauty that's dying inside me
Can you see?
I'm outside of you
And I'm so confused
You keep missing the small things
The safety that love brings

Can you see?
I'm outside of you

You're living to survive
It needs love and light to grow
I could be something beautiful
I guess you'll never know

BRIDGE :
See the funny thing is
You're just as lonely as me
We can be so much better
If you would just let me in

CHORUS :
I'm outside of you
And I can't get through
Overlooking the beauty that's dying inside me
Can you see?
I'm outside of you
And I'm so confused
You keep missing the small things
The safety that love brings

Can you see?

And as you walk by me I'm silently screaming to set me free
I look in the mirror and I see your future
You look good with me

And as you walk by me I'm silently screaming to set me free
I look in the mirror and I see your future
You look good with me, ohh

CHORUS :
I'm outside of you
And I can't get through
Overlooking the beauty that's dying inside me
Can you see? (Can you see?)
I'm outside of you
And I'm so confused
You keep missing the small things
The safety that love brings

Can you see? (Can you see?)
I'm outside of you (x2)
