Inside Out lyrics

Inside Out

PHOEBE:
An oyster shell itself is unassuming
But look inside
You'll find a pearl
The man who otherwise is unpresuming
May share the same blood
As an earl

Do not dismiss so of an off position
She can be tenderhearted
I've no doubt
The world would be in awfully good condition
If we could all live
Inside out

Though belladonna is my favourite flower
I love its shape
And its perfume
You'd likely join the angels in an hour
Should you ingest
Its rather deadly bloom

The man who seems a paragon of virtue
May be a scoundrel
Better versed in sin
There may be many fewer who could hurt you
If we could all live
Outside in

And everyone you'd meet
On any London street
If they be sweet or horrid
It would show
I would be overjoyed
The hearty guide avoid
If I could look at you
And know

And when I meet the man for whom I'm fated
I'll know the one I've waited for is he
For he will find these wealthy trappings overrated
And he will see what no one sees in me
A girl who reads the classics a(aaaaaaaa)nd the sonnets
Who needs no folderol, it'll fill her cup
A girl who thinks a bit beyond her bonnets
He'll be of gentle heart
And good renown
He'll be the most admired man in town
He'll take a world that's mostly upside down
And turn it right side up

If we lived inside out

MONTY:
Or even outside in

BOTH:
The change in how we see would be immense

PHOEBE:
If we lived right side left

MONTY:
Or even left side right

PHOEBE:
Back side front

MONTY:
Or front side back

BOTH:
Would shed a better light
Black might just be white
Day might just be night
If we knew the truth about each other on sight

PHOEBE:
The world might just make sense
