Still On The Outside Looking In (Root Division) by Mountain Songs published on 2014/07/31 10:43:36 +0000 Still On The Outside Looking In Written by Terry Reeves, 1981 Recorded in my living room, Jersey Road, Hounslow, 1982 My two brothers had been musicians and involved in bands for longer than I could remember and I was desperate to be part of their world. This song is about my quest to be part of their 'crowd' and how once I started writing my songs, Root Division was born and I was given my biggest dream of playing in a band with them. Having lost Bri two years ago, I feel privileged to have been so close to the two of them and, on refection, feel it was right for me to be on the outside looking in. (Terry Reeves) The other remaining, living member of Root Division wishes it to be known that the composer's final statement is only his opinion. (Gary Reeves) Terry Reeves: Vocals / Guitar Brian Reeves: Lead Guitar Gary Reeves: Drums John Palmer: Bass LYRICS: Time has passed, life has changed Path to take, rearrange Some I've trod in the past Path I want, fading fast Chorus: Still on the outside looking in Still on the outside looking in He says yes, you say no In the end, agree to go I sit here looking on Wondering why I sing my song Chorus Tied by birth, much the same Differences, age to blame Why do I feel so sad? Love for me aint that bad Chorus Beaten both at my game Triumph theirs, just the same Made my choice, got it wrong Far behind, follow on Still on the outside looking in Still on the outside looking in.
