Looking From The Outside - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

There is something that i can see
Every time that you talk to me
And it feels like i'm gonna be
Looking from the outside
There is something i've got to say
And it's making me feel this way
Does it mean that i'm gonna stay
Looking from the outside

I might as well fall
I might as well drift away
I might as well fall
It seems there is no other way
Looking from the outside
Looking from the outside
Looking for the inside of you


If i say that i like your song
Will you say that you played it wrong
Or that maybe i stayed too long
Looking from the outside
If i say that you're out of line
Will you say that i'm wasting time
'cos it's making me feel that i'm
Looking from the outside


I might as well fall
I might as well drift away
I might as well fall
It seems there is no other way
Looking from the outside
Looking from the outside
Looking for the inside of you
