OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
Lyrics: Dov Hammer (c) 2007–06–24
Music : Andy Watts

I`ve been in exile since I was born
Always preferred it that way
Like an outlaw I travel at night
Avoiding the light of day
Blending into the crowd, watching,
Spreading disinformation
On the far side of the mirror
On the outside looking in

I thought I won her heart that night
But she was playing to win
I stole her from a friend of mine
But it was she who took me from him
She had`nt seen me in some time
Asked me where I`d been
She did not seem too surprised when I said
"On the outside looking in"

Teachers, preachers , rabbis and cops
All want to have their say
Telling me how it really is
And how I should play the game.
Politicians and beauty queens
Flashing prime-time grins
I ain`t really that far away
I`m just outside looking in.

I still see it when I dream, hear it in the southern wind
But when day breaks I'm still out there
on the outside looking in
