Outside Yourself

Words & Music by David Willersdorf

Verse 1:

I was lost in all my pain
I was caught up on the inside
I didn’t know who knew my name I was trying to survive
Trying to survive

Verse 2:

I caught a glimpse of a man like me
He was struggling with a burden
I’d walked that road, I’d climbed that hill
And I knew that I could help him, still
Knew that I could help him

Pre-Chorus 1:

No man’s an island to himself
You gotta live for something else

Chorus:

You gotta live outside yourself
Outside yourself, outside yourself

Verse 3:

There’s so much more on the other side
The grass is waiting to be watered
Don’t hold it in, just let it ride
Be the change you wanna make outside
Change you wanna make, yeah

Pre-Chorus 2:

No man’s an island on his own
You gotta live for what you know

Ending:

No man’s an island to himself
You gotta live for something
