Cliff Richard – Outsider lyrics

Someone else is in your arms tonight
While I'm all alone and blue
Someone else would kiss and hold you tight
Just the way I used to do

I used to be your love
And now I'm your used-to-be
Outsider, that's me

You'll be dancing cheek to cheek with him
To our favourite melody
And the tender words you speak to him
Would be words you spoke to me

Once I was in your heart
Now some else holds the key
Outsider, that's me

I want you so much (so much)
I can look (you can look)
But mustn't touch

I keep waiting for the phone to ring
But I know it's all in vain
When you left me you took everything
Just the memory and the pain

I used to be your love
And now I'm your used-to-be
Outsider, that's me
Outsider, er that's me
