Standing on the outside looking in
Don't feel any different it's the way it's always been
In the world of headless well dressed mannequins
You're always standing on the outside looking in

I remember when you taught me how to bathe
In the roadside motel bathtub
I watched you shave your legs
You swore that we would take this to our graves
I remember when you taught me how to bathe

You said only I can make you happy
But I'm not gonna tell you how
I don't want this to last forever
Only now, only now

There's a place she longs to be she'll never go
Took a picture at the window with the camera on her phone
Got off one more time, then put back on her clothes
There's a place she longs to be she'll never go

Now I'm standing on the outside looking in
In a world of paper tigers and imaginary friends
It's a shame I can't be bothered to pretend
When I'm standing at the outside looking in

I told you how I planned on dying
But you know I always joke around
I'm up for never saying never
At least for now, at least for now

Because I could never make you happy
But I know just how to calm you down
We don't have to see the future
Only now, only now
