​On the Outside

This song is by Sandra McCracken and appears on the album Red Balloon (2008).

Out of reach, out of reason
Wheels over water, spin out of control
The sky was falling when I left the scene
My feet they run, my heart it stalls

And I am falling far behind
My own story, my own life
And I watch it pass
As if I am on the outside

Every sorrow laced with springtime
Tell me something beautiful again
Give me sparrow wings and clear eyes
To break the empty silence in my head

'Cause I am falling far behind
My own story, my own life
And I watch it pass
As if I am on the outside

Through the tiny windows of this submarine
I can see our history at the curb
I come up for air I need the space to breathe
Open the cage and set free the bird

And I am falling far behind
My own story, my own life
And I watch it pass
As if I am on the outside
On the outside
On the outside
