Standing On The Outside

This song is by Leo Kottke and appears on the album Chewing Pine (1996).

I've been on the outside loving you
Seen from far away
Every day that I live for you
All I do or say

Like the song of the whippoorwill
Beneath a cloudy sky
Your love stands in front of me
While I go floating by

People talk about how they feel
But I never hear
You know they only want to get along
I only want you near

So standing on the outside loving you
Can't be so terribly bad
It's awful easy to get along
With what you've never had
