Neil Diamond – On The Outside Lookin' In lyrics

I see lovers passing by
But no matter how I try
I can't greet them with a grin
'Cause I'm standing
On the outside lookin' in

Friends have told me all along
I've been playing my cards all wrong
But I just can't seem to win
And I'm always
On the outside lookin' in

Oh, how it hurts
To see others enjoy love
I've never known
And I'm afraid
That I'll spend all my night
In my room all alone

Maybe someday I will find someone
That I can call mine
On that day my life'll begin
And I won't be
On the outside lookin' in
