Outside Looking In Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter

Everywhere I see the signs pointing one direction
No more twists or crooked turns leaving room for doubt
Where I used to take the time for quiet and reflection
Now I only hear the noise of what I am without
I see the walking hand in hand and my eyes just want to linger
On those golden wedding bands wrapped around their fingers
By the time I turn away I feel it once again
I'm back in this familiar place, outside looking in

Baby all the tears between us couldn't fill the spaces
And all the words we grasped at, they just fell away
I kept waiting on forgiveness to fix the broken places
But nothing even like it ever came my way
And tonight I drove around and the street came up before me
I took a turn and then I found this old house coming toward me
I heard the sound a heart must make when a memory's caving in
Oh baby what a hungry place, outside looking in

It's the hardest kind of need that never knows a reason
Are we such a lonely breed or just born in a lonely season
Baby it's all in the eyes; it's where the reckoning begins
It's where we linger like a sigh; it's where we long to be pulled in
It's where we learn to say goodbye without saying anything
Just standing on the borderlines, outside looking in
