Outside Looking In - Jordan Pruitt.
Now, I don’t give two shits that this is a “disney channel” song, or that it’s totally outdated and old. It’s such a relatable song; it honestly perfectly describes my life and probably many other peoples’ right now pretty much. And it’s overall actually a really good song.
That’s one of the most beautiful things about music. It can be something awesome that you can dance to and have fun with, or it can be something you can cry yourself to sleep to. It’s one of the best ways to know that if you find a song that describes your situation, that you’re never alone. There will always be other people listening to it that go through the same struggles you deal with every day.
If you could read my mind
You might see more of me than meets the eye
And you’ve been all wrong
Not who you think I am
You’ve never given me a chance.
You don’t know how it feels
To be outside the crowd
You don’t know what it’s like
To be left out
And you don’t know how it feels
To be your own best friend
On the outside looking in
Well, I’m tired of staying at home
I’m bored and all alone
I’m sick of wasting all my time.
