lyrics

OUTSIDE Ian Roland 28/08/2014

VERSE 1
FATHER CAN I GO OUTSIDE?
I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR CHILD
BUT I WANT TO SEE BEYOND OUR WALLS
AND LEAVE THESE DARKENED CORRIDORS.
I HAVE GROWN BEFORE YOUR EYES
SINCE LAST I ASKED I'M TWICE THE SIZE.
FATHER CAN I GO OUTSIDE?

CHORUS
I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR, I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR CHILD.

VERSE 2
CHILD YOU CANNOT GO OUT THERE.
THE WOLVES WILL BITE, THE WOLVES DON'T CARE.
THEY'LL TEAR YOUR SOUL AND RIP APART
STAND BY ME, WE SHALL NOT PART.
FOR FEAR IS IN ME AND IN YOU
IT'S SHADOWS WE ARE DESTINED TO.
SHADOW LIVES BETWEEN THESE WALLS.

CHORUS
CHILD YOU MUST HEED MY, CHILD YOU MUST HEED MY CALL.

VERSE 3
WOLF I SEE YOU STANDING THERE
HOWLING FREE IN THE MIDNIGHT AIR
IF YOU KILL ME MAKE IT QUICK
UNLOCK THE DOOR AND TAKE YOUR PICK

CHORUS (x4)
GET TO SEE THE SUNLIGHT, GOT TO SEE THE SUNLIGHT
HOW DO I, HOW DO I, HOW DO I, HOW DO I?
END VERSE
FATHER CAN I GO OUTSIDE?
I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR CHILD
