Inside Music Therapy: “Outsider” by Kayla

by Wade on January 3, 2011

The inspiration for this song came from Kayla’s admiration for superheroes! Our songwriting session led to a discussion about how superheroes often feel like outsiders in society.  Kayla really resonated with this concept.  She composed the lyrics and selected an accompaniment style for the piece.

OUTSIDER

by Kayla & Wade

Verse 1:

Unaccepted.

For who I am.

They don’t realize,

What’s inside of me.

Pushed away.

Sometimes I wonder why I turned out this way.

Chorus:

Like an outsider.

Pushed away.

Like an outsider.

Struggling.

Why can’t they see who I am?

Verse 2:

Behind every hero

You will find an outsider just like me,

Just like me.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:

Heroes give me strength

To carry on day to day.

Why can’t they see who I am?

Bridge:

Don’t you see I struggle?

Each and every day.

But I am human just like you,

I live a different way.

Repeat Chorus

Why can’t you see who I am?
