Outside Looking In
You are on the outside looking in.
And I am on the inside looking out.
You tell me how to feel without second thought or even a doubt.
How you live your life is the way I should live mine.
And if I have an opinion then I am way out of line.
If I cry you say that I am weak.
If I'm upset you scold me when I speak.
What I wonder is how do you know?
How do you think you can control me like a puppet in a show?
How I feel is something you don't know about.
Because you are on the outside looking in.
And I'm on the inside looking out.
