I wanna be on the sidelines looking in
I wanna be the quiet one in the group
When I have something to say everyone listens
Cause I'll hardly speak at all
I wanna be on the outside of the looking glass
Always looking in, Cause I'll never say a word

Let me out, let me in
Gotta get out, I'm getting in

I wanna be in the center of attention
People laugh at things I say
My voice is louder than everybodys in the room
So they dont, have a choice anyway

Let me out, let me in
Gotta get out, I'm getting in

I don't know where I am on the attention status
But I'm happy where I am

    General Commentthis kinda reminds me of what i want to be sometimes....quiet one time, then when everybody is listening to me and i'm cool and all that. then i realize when it says.."i dont know where i am on the attention status, but i'm happy where i am"..reminds me that i am happy where i am.
