Meat Loaf - Standing On The Outside Lyrics

I ain't livin' here no more
I ain't even keepin' score
It's too late to change, it's over
I'm drowned in a sea of tears

Nothin' I can say to you makes any difference
There ain't nothin' I can do
None of it's makin' sense

Standing on the outside
Lookin' in at you
Standing on the outside
I'm running out of time

I'm so tired of being alone
In a world that feels so cold
There's got to be a light that I can find
There's got to be a soul somewhere that shines for me

Now I don't want to live without love anymore
I just wanna live my life
Love's gonna open up the door
Show me it's light again


Nothin' I can say to you makes any difference
There ain't nothin' I can do
None of it's makin' sense

  5. Miller Heileife

    He looks the barrell dead
    Leans to the hood of the 240z
    Does his cross
    Accepts his fate

    This hit from Meat Loaf was heard on the Miami Vice episode, Forgive Us Our Debts, which aired on December 12, 1986. Miami Vice was one of my favorite shows. It was the first to combine MTV with police action drama.

  7. arthurspooner

    we're all here because of the superb miami vice episode "forgive us our debts".

  8. Sergio Melis

    fantastic song, I remember all the scene of the episode where this song was, one of the most beautiful scenes of all miami vice series, greath athmosfere, very guessed song by meatloaf

  9. rich allen

  10. Julien Brene


  11. Leigh Burne

    Surely one of the best episodes Vice ever did. Such a crushing, unexpected ending.

  12. einsqad

    Same here,pal.


    Getting an 80's convertible and slowly cruising down city streets at night while blasting some synth tunes might not be a perfect recreation, but it's good enough for me.

  13. Dewayne White

    Best episode, I thought at first they show how cruel death penality is, but then bam!

  17. MrGaryo78

    In 1986 this song was played a starring role in a Miami Vice episode, an outstanding story line in the episode with this song was just amazing!!!


    Agreed. I just rewatched the other day the episode and it is haunting. I have been remembering this episode since the 80's and trying to find the song, it stuck with me . Ah sweet Netflix, Shazam and Internet :0


    @labeep Yes, it really meshes well with the story line of that episode.


    I've just watched that Miami Vice episode from 1986 via DVD. The song is certainly a powerful piece to compliment the story line.


    Miami Vice, Season 3 episode 11 Forgive us our debts.

    Bellissima !

  19. Galadín Nimcelithil

  21. marcelo suarez

  22. Денис Архипов

    The song which help me all years in army. Very best. Love this song.

  23. sundet81

    Written by Richard Page and Steve George of Mr. Mister. Their demo is out there somewhere and sounds amazing too. I think it took a Meat Loaf to copy Page's vocals. What a voice.


    Can you share the link please?

  24. manny ramiz

    This song was played throughout one of the best ever Miami Vice episodes. For those who haven't seen it... Find it and watch..!
