Neal Morse - Outside Looking In

Here I am more or less a man
Second rate
The last in line
One of life's little twists of fate

But here I stand the unaccepted man
At the temple gate...

Sometimes I sit and wonder why
I was born
When everything that I touch
Seems to turn out wrong

Though I'm a mistake
There must be a place I belong

But I'm outside looking in
(Life looks so easy, they all seem so happy)
Yes, I'm outside looking in
(And everyone's pretty but I feel so ugly)
I'm all alone without a friend
‘Cause I'm outside looking in

The plan was laid I guess I was made this way
I've tried before but I just can't seem to change

Still my heart longs to belong
I wish there was a way

But I'm outside looking in
(The beautiful city, they all seem so happy)
Yes, I'm outside looking in
(And everyone's pretty but I feel so ugly)
The celebration will begin
While I'm still outside looking in
Oh, I'm outside looking in
(They make it look easy to love and be happy)
Yes, I'm outside looking in
(I'm cast out and ugly and nobody loves me)
Oh, nobody knows me now
I'm outside looking in
(The beautiful city, they all seem so happy)
Oh, nobody sees the ones
Outside looking in
(And everyone's pretty but I feel so ugly)
Oh, nobody knows me now

As life goes on for them
I will stay here in my sin
‘Cause I'm outside looking in
