From the Outside Looking In

My heart is cold, my soul is empty
Alone I sit and watch with envy
This world I struggle to fit in
No idea where to begin

I glance at hope, it looks away
No one really cares anyway
If next week I disappear
You’d forget that I’d been here

Out here on the street
Loneliness so deep
Never thought I’d fall this far
Each of us was where you are
We face our deepest fears within
From the outside looking in

A helping hand, a kind exchange
Start to ease the inner pain
Yet still I feel those judging eyes
Is this the truth that we despise?

Out here on the street
Loneliness so deep
Never thought I’d fall this far
Each of us was where you are
We face our deepest fears within
From the outside looking in

One mistake a twist of fate
Now it seems there’s no escape
You don’t know you just can’t see
It could be you instead of me

A hint of mercy in your eyes
But aren’t we all the same inside

Out here on the street
Loneliness so deep
Never thought I’d fall this far
Each of us was where you are
We face our deepest fears within
From the outside looking in
We face our deepest fears within
From the outside looking in
