Outside Lyrics - Staind

Review The Song (26)

And you, can bring me to my knees
All the times,
That I could beg you please-
In vain
All the times
When I felt insecure
For you
And I leave
My burdens at the door

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
sponsored links
and I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times
That I felt like this won't end
It was for you
And I taste
What I could never have
It was from you
All the times
That I've cried
My intentions
Were full of pride
But I waste
More time than anyone

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times
That I've cried
All this wasted
It's all inside
And I feel
All this pain
Stuffed it down
It's back again
And I lie
Here in bed
All alone
I can't mend
But I feel
Tomorrow I'll be okay

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

This song hits home with me. Ive been through a lot of deep depression and this song helps remind me that it will all be ok. No matter how much you go through there will always be soneone you can talk to. Even if that person isnt someone you know. I heard a sad story about this song that just makes me sad every time I hear it. A boy heard this song and learned how to play it and one day his mother found him dead with a recording of him playing the song as his sort of suicide note. Just remember it only takes one friend or one person that cares to prevent suicide

My Take On This | Reviewer: Adam Rock | 6/15/14

The ability to see through people for who they are and realize when they dump on you that you're not any better.

Aren't we all on the "outside" at times?

my ex cheated on me and i caught her | Reviewer: Michael | 3/7/14

Three years ago my ex and I joined the military and we going through basic training together at two different bases but we kept in touch like any couple would do. She was sent to fort Jackson in south Carolina for her basic training. After 6weeks of brutal basic training I graduated. I drove up to fort Jackson to her graduate rented a hotel room for the weekend went to pick her up from the base and brought her back to my hotel room. She said she was hungry I went out and bought some food and came back to see her having sex with another guy. That's what this song reminds me of.

hurt somuch for being honest and true | Reviewer: far | 8/13/11

it reminds me to my past life kinda religious what i been trough to be honest its sad... my ex dumped me cause i being honest for what i do.. but its not like i cheat on her.. even we also in the long distance relationship i will never ever do that to her.. for her that will never happen. shes like angel that God sent to me.. there is no way ill cheat on her not even think of that.. the mistake i did i just can't remove my habit.. i'm a heavy stoner at that time.. stupid me cause i promise her the moon.. but she really really wanna changed me to be a good better person, i know what she mean is a good thing for me even that's not right.. people will never can't change other people. but i just feel agreed with what she wanna do to me that time, because im really2 not good person.. not even close to that.. close to evil you can say that.. but everything have to be in process to success.. but she wants to be instant.. n that is the things that i really really can't give to her.. n that really really makes her so disappointed so bad and makes our relationship end. it really really broke me for sure.. specialy when she said God tell her that i'm the man for her.. and she really really convince me about that n makes me really2 believe in that finally.. back at the first time when the love's between us shows up... disappointed , sad , mad , angry , n all those bad, sucks, down, heartbreaking, all that hurting feeling. it just like all of that in one and straight me at once.. i get hurt a lot before psychically n mentally even now sometime i still get that.. its life, its makes me keep moving on.. but for that one.. that one is really really special for me.. the other you can throw it away and leave it n its gone.. but this one just gonna leave a deep mark in my life.. and makes me realize maybe there is something that God wanna show me about relationship, about being honest and true, its takes time for me to forgive my self and to forgive her.. now finally i can.. and i hope she will forgive for what i can't do for her.. this is what i feel about every time i listening to this song.. its a good song:)

the truth | Reviewer: Kaity | 2/24/11

this song hits home with me.. the guy i love recently moved to be with another girl.. he says he can trust me even though he loves me and i still really love him.. i messed up and ended our relationship.. not by cheating or anything.. but the ending was the same as if i had.. now were both miserable.. him with her and me by myself.. we message everyday and keep in contact and are strictly friends but i miss him so very much.. i want him back but it doesnt seem possible.. every time i listen to this song it makes me cry because we both listened to staind together and loved it...

Perfect | Reviewer: nghts1lk3r | 1/14/11

Every time I hear this song, I think about this girl I've known for going on 10 years... I'm in love with her, but I don't think she sees it, and I know that she and I both rely on each other for almost everything. However, she goes from bad relationship to bad relationship, and all I can do is just watch "from the outside, looking in" and try to help her when she gets hurt.

I know I'm not the perfect guy. I'm very far from the perfect guy. I'm the closest thing to evil that she's seen. Granted I'm nonviolent towards people, I'm just a loathsome person with a twisted personality that almost nobody can stand. Still, she and I need each other, yin and yang, black and white, good and evil. We're opposites, but that almost draws us closer together.

Where the song talks about seeing through the other person, seeing their true colors, I know exactly what he means, since that's how I feel. I know exactly what she thinks and how she feels, but I don't know... I try to show her that maybe she needs to look a little closer to home for "Mr. Right," but I know I'll never get that chance to be him.

After all, a judge isn't usually allowed into a contest.

2010... | Reviewer: Vamped | 12/23/10

This song reminds me of this year.... Well, most of my life actually, but this year. And the depression. The friends I lost, my ex who promised to marry me, cheated on me and went to marry the girl. The relationship I have with my parents... and all the pain that just goes through me most days. But somehow, things always turn out ok. This song to me says, "I'm looking into the lives of the people who rejected me; and funny... we're just the same.... and my head is pounding with this headache that never goes away, but the pain will go. I'll be ok..."

not just for the bf/gf | Reviewer: Jordan | 11/27/10

When I heard this song it just moved me to tears because it made me think of my dad. He's in prison and won't be out until he's sixty-seven- minimum. He's currently 37. It made me think of how much he hasn't been in my life and how much pain was because of him. Kind of ironic: the whole "on the outside looking in" cause its literal for me.

thank you guys | Reviewer: Lady D | 7/3/10

All these comments about the complicated relationships really made my day, but not in the bad meaning. You see, I just broke up with my boyfriend few days ago, I got drunk and very sick so I almost fainted and just wanted him to hold me, when he did I started to laugh because I was sure life is great, after all are fights and all the shit he sufferd from me he is still here, holding me in his arms, telling me It will be okay.. and We were supose to celebrate a year next week. In the moment I started to laugh he left, he said it's because he was sure I was pranking him, but I'm in a big doubt that's the hole reason (as I said before we were fighting alot). Anyway, he left me alone in a huge city far away from home at 4 AM crying like a baby from the physical and moral pain, he was the only guy I've ever trusted, and it was the first time someone did something like this to me. Of course I got mad and dumped him. The next day I tried to come back, I don't know why, I guess it's because he was still importent to me. And he said horrible things to me, not insults, but it hurted ten times as bad. Now he doesen't want to see me again for some reason, and I found out his true colours. All of my friends have perfectly healthy relationships, so they just won't understand and hearing your stories makes me feel like I'm not alone and it gives me the feeling that tomorrow WILL be okay. I love you guys, and I'm sorry for the fucked up englidh. I just had to write it somewhere and I was really upset. ^^"

Hits the nail on the head | Reviewer: Grady | 4/27/10

Man, if anyone has ever been a very complicated relationship, this one cuts right to the bone. The music really matches the lyrics well. Great to crank up, and drink away some of the pain when things are starting to suck.

Well..thats life.. | Reviewer: Soelbeck | 4/5/10

I was dating this girl.
She was like almost perfect, and always kind to me and stuff..
One day she was going to this party wich I couldn't make.
I came anyways and when I got there this song was playing and I saw her doing another guy in a sideroom...
thats what this song reminds me of.

sad | Reviewer: Emily | 3/4/10

i love this song. It ois my favorite song. It sometimes makes me cry because my boyfriend, well ex now used to sing this to me while playing his guitar and he cheated on me so it brings back memorys

Girlfriend cheated | Reviewer: Yank | 2/25/10

My girlfriend cheated on me.. not that the song was written for the same kind of thing.. But the song fits my situation perfectly. Her true colours: how she really is - a cheater and she can lie to my face without hesitation. She's ugly like me: I 'ruined' her life when I found out and I lied a lot to a previous girlfriend. Therefore I feel that i'm ugly too. I still taste what I could never had because my feelings for here aren't over... And today, she made contact with me again so all the feelings that were stuffed down are all back again now... I'm crying at the moment listening to this song.. Great song really.
