"Inside Out" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
In fairness I was an easy sell
Though I'm embarrassed
To admit it to myself
And the worst part is
You know it all too well
So don't take advantage
Of my transparent shell, no

But I think you know what I need
Impossible as it may seem
And I think it's easy to see

I am awake, it's getting late
I'm in no state to be alone now
Yeah, I'm alone now
Come light the fire in my room
I think I'm losing all control now
I don't even know how
But I'm in your rip tide
And now I'm inside out

I'm in the corner of the street cafe
And my heart is warmer
Since I heard from you today

Like a shallow creek I am gleaming
No chance of keeping any secrets
Have I lost enough security yet?

I tried to hide it, I can't deny it
Now I'm inside out
Say you love me, yeah, all or nothing (oh)
Now I'm inside out

I am awake, it's getting late
I'm in no state to be alone now
Yeah, I'm alone now
Come light the fire in my room
I think I'm losing all control now
I don't even know how

I tried to hide it, I can't deny it
Now I'm inside out
Say you love me, yeah, all or nothing (oh)
Now I'm inside out

    General CommentI feel like the feeling of the entire song can be summed up in 3 lines:

    "I am awake, it's getting late
    I'm in no state to be alone now
    Yeah, I'm alone now"

    It's about being crazy about someone, and that feeling you get at night when you're trying to fall asleep, but can't because all you can think about is that person, and how much you wish they were lying next to you. They make you crazy, flip you around, turn you inside out. And you absolutely ache for them to be there with you. It's the time when it's worst for you to be alone, because you're so aware of you're aloneness, when everyone else is sleeping, and you're lying awake next to an empty space.

    Love this song.

    My InterpretationMight I also add that this person she is pining for, is someone that she never wanted to or expect to fall for. She seems to have had her guard blown away by this person.
