outside lyrics – the red jumpsuit apparatus

(originally by staind)

and you, you can bring me to my knees-again
all the times that i could beg you please-in vain
all the times that i felt insecure-for you
and i leave my burdens at the door

[chorus]
i’m on the outside and i’m lookin’ in
i can see through you, see your true colors
’cause inside you’re ugly, you’re ugly like me
and i can see through you, see to the real you
all the times that i’ve felt like this won’t end-it’s for you
and i taste what i could never have-it was from you
all the times that i’ve cried, my intentions were full of pride
but i waste more time than anyone

[chorus]
but i’m on the outside and i’m looking in

i can see through you, see your true colors
’cause inside you’re ugly, you’re ugly like me
and i can see through you, see to the real you

all the times that i’ve cried
all this wastin’, it’s all inside
and i feel all this pain
i stuffed it down, it’s back again
and i lie here in bed
all alone, i can’t mend
but i feel tomorrow will be okay

[chorus]
but i’m on the outside and i’m lookin’ in
i can see through you, see your true colors
’cause inside you’re ugly, you’re ugly like me
i can see through you, see to the real you
