Lyrics

Outside Ourselves
Parker/Lougen ©2017

The door of our heart can often be closed
Shades drawn, windows down
Inside broken chairs, they cover the floor
Lock on the handle, keeping feelers out

*Chorus
Outside ourselves
The whole world is fighting
Dividing itself all over again
Outside ourselves
A whole world is losing
Sight of the love, that has the power to change

Hatred and fear, sound their battle cry
Happened before, it's no different this time
Violent and arrogant light up the sky
What will it take to raise the blind

*Chorus

**2nd Chorus
The whole world is changing
To be set free, free from the pain
The whole world is trying to overcome
We must be the change
