"Outside (feat. Ellie Goulding)" as written by and Calvin Harris Ellie Goulding....
Look at what you've done
Stand still, falling away from me
When it takes so long
For I desire, what do you want to be?
I'm holding on
Yourself was never enough for me
Gotta be so strong
There's a power in what you do
Now every other day I've been watching you

Oh oh, oh oh I'll show you what it feels like
Now I'm on the outside, oh oh
We did everything right
Now I'm on the outside, oh oh
I'll show you what it feels like
Now I'm on the outside, oh oh
We did everything right
Now I'm on the outside

So you give me no reason
For me to stay close to you
Tell me what lovers do
How are we still breathing
It's never for us to choose
I'll be the strength in you

Now I'm holding on
Yourself was never enough for me
Gotta be so strong
There's a power in what you do
Now every other day I've been watching you, oh oh oh oh

I'll show you what it feels like
Now I'm on the outside, oh oh
We did everything right
Now I'm on the outside, oh oh
I'll show you what it feels like
Now I'm on the outside, oh oh
We did everything right
Now I'm on the outside

I'll show you what it feels like
Now I'm on the outside
I'll show you what it feels like

I'll show you what it feels like
Now I'm on the outside
We did everything right
Now I'm on the outside

    Song MeaningI think the song is sung from a woman stuck in a relation. Her husband did something she doesn't like (Look at what you've done) and doesn't give her much attention (so you give me no reason, for me to stay close to you, tell me what lovers do). Her husband might not now the consequences of his actions (there's a power in what you do), making her having to watch him (now every other day I'll be watching you). There are hints of that this wasn't always the case (we did everything right), but something happened that left her out of it, not wanting it anymore (now I'm on the outside)

    She's noticeably tired of this (myself was never enough). She wants to take the right in her own hands (i'll be the strength in you), to show her husband what he did.

    On an unrelated note, the music fits [S] Enter.
