"Outsider" as written by Dennis Joseph Matkosky, Ricky Jackson and Randy Jackson....
la la la la. . .

Standing on the edge of a beginning and an end
Oh, so this is what it feels like.
87th floor of a high-rise in New York
Ah, there's something new this time.
And I've known it since I was young
And I feel it in my bones
This is how it's always meant to go.

Right here upon the street
Watching the city spin beneath
I couldn't help but feel like an outsider.
Lifted up off the ground
Seeing for the first time now
This is where I became an outsider.

I couldn't help but stare
When I caught them standing there
Oh, I could see it in their eyes
Yeah, I saw it in their eyes.
And I can hear the song
Since it's been playing all along
Ah, can you hear the singing?
And I've known it since I was young
And I feel it in my bones
This is how it's always meant to go.

Right here upon the street
Watching the city spin beneath
I couldn't help but feel like an outsider.
Lifted up off the ground
Seeing for the first time now
This is where I became an outsider.

oh, this is how it's always meant to go.

Oh, right here upon the street
Watching the city spin beneath
I couldn't help but feel like an outsider.
Lifted up off the ground
Seeing for the first time now
This is where I became an outsider.

la la la la. . .

    I think everyone feels like an outsider once in awhile. Specially in puberty in stuff lol...So I don't think this song is hard to understand:-).
