"Outside Of You" as written by Alecia B Moore, Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk....
I can't get your attention
And I'm so sick of it
I've got something to say to you
So shut up and listen
I don't want you to look past me
I want you to know who I am
I hate it when you ignore me
You just don't understand
See the funny thing is
You're just as useless as me
I can make you better
If you would just let me in

[Chorus]
I'm outside of you
And I can't get through
No more looking for beauty that's dying inside me
Can't you see?
I'm outside of you
And I'm so confused
You keep missing the small things
The safety that love brings
Can't you see?

I'm outside of you

You're only plan to survive
It needs love and light to grow
I could be something beautiful
I guess you'll never know
See, the funny thing is
You're just as lonely as me
We could be so much better
If you would just let me in

[Chorus]

And as you walk by me
I'm silently screaming to set me free
I look in the mirror
And I see your future
You look good with me
And as you walk by me
I'm silently screaming to set me free
I look in the mirror
And I see your future
You look good with me
Oh!

[Chorus]

That I'm outside of you
I'm outside of you

    General CommentThis song is really catchy, I always find myself singing it. The meaning is pretty obvious, shes trying to tell a guy that she wants to be with him but he isnt 'letting down his walls' and isnt willing to committ to a meaningful relationship. Fave line: "I look in the mirror and I see your future, you look good with me"!

    General CommentThe album definitely gave her back some dignity (no pun intended). This is actually one nice song she's sung; goes with her voice.

    General CommentI love this song. I always listen to it when I'm trying to befriend someone who's being totally judgmental and bitchy. People always overlook my inner beauty. Sad world.

    But this song is really great. :P
