Standin' on the outside, lookin' in
You know it's been a long time, I don't know where to begin
So much I wanna say-ay, so much I wanna do-oo
Friends are tellin' me, it's time that you broke through
I've been through the hard times, of searchin' soul
You know it's been a hard climb, from rock'n'roll
Now I feel a need in me, so har-ard to explai-ai-ai-ain
Now I've seen the joy of light and I wanna remai-ai-ain
Standing on the insi-ide, I finally broke that line
Ring around the circle-le, don't you know that it feels so fi-i-ine
Every waking moment I just wanna sing the new-ews

All the backsla-appers know my name this time
Now that I've turned the lo-ock
Now that I've opened the door-oor
I won't be on the outside, no, anymore-ore-ore-ore
Standing on the insi-ide, I finally broke that line
Ring around the circle-le, don't you know that it feels so fine
Every waking moment I just wanna sing the new-ews
That I'm standin' on the inside, kicked away them blues
Now that I've turned the lock
Now that I've opened the door-oor-oor-oor
I won't be on the outside, no, anymore
Sing it out
Standing on the insi-ide, I finally broke that line
Ring around the circle-le, don't you know that it feels so fine
Every waking moment I just wanna sing the new-ews
That I'm standin' on the inside, kicked away them blues
Standin' on the inside (standing on the inside)
Standin' on the i-insi-ide (standing on the inside)
I kicked, I kicked, I kicked, I kicked (standing on the inside)
Sta-andin' on the inside (standin
