My Outlook Is New — Original Lyrics


Verse I

There was a time, where you’d always remember me.

Now, I have to work harder to jog your memory.

You used to smile every time I  saw your face.

Now, your smile’s a rare occurrence and it’s out of place.

The distance is growing and this might be my final plea.

Chorus

And now you know,

That the spotlights are blinding you, baby.

It just goes to show,

Fame’s the poison that turned your yes into a maybe.

Well, I can’t wait any longer.

I won’t let you put me down like you used to do.

Ohhh, no-ohh. cause my outlook is new.

Verse II

Now you live a life where things come easily.

You’ve forgotten everything about humility.

You ignored your roots, and the home you came from.

The fast lane took the reigns, and took away who you used to be.

The distance is growing and this might be my final plea.

Chorus

And now you know,

That the spotlights are blinding you, baby.

It just goes to show,

Fame’s the poison that turned your yes into a maybe.

Well, I can’t wait any longer.

I won’t let you put me down like you used to do.

Ohhh, no-ohh. cause my outlook is new.

Bridge

Now, I hope you realize

and that this doesn’t come as a surprise.

But money can’t buy your character.

Now you’re left alone with your vanity.

You look in the mirror… and I have to ask…

Do you like what you see?

Chorus

And now you know,

That the spotlights are blinding you, baby.

It just goes to show,

Fame’s the poison that turned your yes into a maybe.

Well, I can’t wait any longer.

I won’t let you put me down like you used to do.

Ohhh, no-ohh. cause my outlook is new.
