Leo Kottke – Standing On The Outside lyrics

Standing On The Outside
by Leo Kottke, Mary Kottke
Copyright 1975 Overdrive Music/ASCAP
recorded by Leo Kottke on:
1975 "Chewing Pine" (Capitol)
1978 "Leo Kottke The Best" (Capitol)
I've been on the outside loving you
Seen from far away
Every day that I live for you
All I do or say
Like the song of the whippoorwill
Beneath a cloudy sky
Your love stands in front of me
While I go floating by
People talk about how they feel
But I never hear
You know they only want to get along
I only want you near
So standing on the outside loving you
Can't be so terribly bad
It's awful easy to get along
With what you've never had
