Kellie Coffey (Duet With Richie McDonald) – Outside Looking In lyrics

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 somethin' 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
And love you too, that's what we talk about
We just settle in and 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 and missing you so much

From the inside looking out, I'm watchin' 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
(From the outside looking in)
You know I really love you
(You know I really love you)
I wish that you would see
(I wish that you would 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 savin'
Let's find each other now before we throw it all away
Oh, I still believe we can go back again
(I still believe, go back again)
Be the lovers we see, from the outside looking in
