Kellie Coffey – Outside Looking In lyrics

(Kellie Coffey/Billy Kirsch)

From the outside looking in
I see two lovers on the boardwalk
On the first warm day of spring holding hands
But when I look again
There is something missing from this picture
That I don't understand
From the outside looking in everybody sees
A couple so in love, yeah that's you and me.

But from the inside looking out
Everything is different baby
And I can't figure out
If you can even see it maybe
You still believe what everybody sees
From the outside looking in

Nothing's new; I had a good day
Love you too. that's what we talk about
We just settle in
Here inside my head this voice is screaming
But no words are coming out
From the outside looking in you're close enough to touch
I'm sitting right beside you, baby, missing you so much

From the inside looking out
I'm watching our love slip away
And I can't figure out
How to reach you. what to say
Oh it's killing me
What nobody sees
From the outside looking in

You know I really love you
I wish that you could see
Love ain't just a habit, baby
This isn't how it has to be

'Cause from the inside looking out
We've still got a lot worth saving
Let's find each other now
Before we throw it all away
Oh, I still believe we can go back again
Be the lovers we see
From the outside looking in
