He Was On The Outside
    He is Now On The Inside

He believed in Jesus
But he was not a Christian
He believed in God
But he did not follow a religion
He was not a strong man
But strong enough not to let that bother him
He wasn't good at English, math or science
But he could feel
And he knew what those feelings were about
Practicing the love without strings
A pure love without the security of ownership
He dreamed of teaching everyone
No one would be lonely
No onlys

He found a need
Everybody saw it
But only he noticed
Could not understand
Why nobody was doing anything about it

He was on the outside
Now he's forever on the inside
How did he do it
And you can't help but hear what he has said
