​Life On The Outside

This song is by Bleu Edmondson and appears on the album The Future Ain't What It Used To Be (2010).

When it hurts so bad
I think my heart will explode
Mad at the clock
'Cause it moves so slow

They say to stand up tall
But I'm all out of pride
It's another day
Life on the outside

The forgotten man
With the wasted voice
I go to work each day
'Cause I ain't got no choice

I have so much to give
I feel weak and crucified
It's my cross to bear
Life on the outside

Now, I live where the fragile dreamers go
And I'm screamin' as the raging river flows
'Til the barefoot angel comes
With glory on her tongue

I walk this town
In another man's skin
Battered, bruised
And torn, sufferin'

And the people on the street
Won't look me in the eyes
There's a bitter wind
Life on the outside

Now, I live where the fragile dreamers go
And I'm screamin' as the raging river flows
'Til the barefoot angel comes
With glory on her tongue

Stranded, branded
A warm heart turned to stone
Gettin' wasted all alone

So tell me someday it won't be this way
Ramblers, tramps and thieves
Walkin' wounded dressed like me, yeah

Now, I live where the fragile dreamers go
And I'm screamin' as the raging river flows
'Til the barefoot angel comes
With glory on her tongue

On the broken nights
I walk the railroad tracks
And maybe someday
I just won't turn back
