Rosanne Cash — On The Inside lyrics

We crawled night and day through the tears and debries
Now I'm reaching out to you but I'm keeping my hands clean
The tables are turning the tempo slows down
And we're gettin' off this misery-go-round
It's a brand new world baby now things have changed
A brand new picture in a brand new frame
A turn of the page with a blink of your eye
Our two steps in rhythm our hearts beatin' time
On the inside it all happened on the inside it all went down on the inside

A critical moment I know you'd agree both of us separate but neither one free
We traded our papers for new walking shoes
But I had no idea how I'd feel without you
We watched it unravel we heard it unwind imprisoned by anger embittered by time
No one could tell me we'd be standing here today
Steeled by the fire and sealed by the pain
On the inside it all happened on the inside it all went down on the inside

I'm holding on to you and I know you're holding on to me too
We gave it one more chance and found the key to romance
Now none of it happens like we think it should be
Hey it'd all be disaster if left up to me
By the power of love and protection divine
We found we hold hands through the darkness and then there was light
On the inside it all happened on the inside it all went down on the inside
On the inside it all happened on the inside it all went down on the inside
