Greyson Chance - Waiting Outside the Lines Lyrics and Video

Waiting Outside the Lines by Greyson Chance, Music Lyrics and Video

Waiting Outside the Lines is the debut single of 13-year-old singer Greyson Chance.
Six months ago, YouTube sensation Greyson Chance made a splash singing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” (it has 32,300,000 page views and counting).
Big-time supporter DeGeneres took Chance under the wing of her record label, eleveneleven Records, last spring when he first appeared on the show, and the transformation of the young performer is impressive.
On Tuesday, October 26, Greyson Chance debuted his first single on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Greyson Chance - Waiting Outside the Lines Lyrics

You’ll never enjoy your life,
living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
how you gonna reach the top?

Rules and regulations,
force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
it’s time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
even if it’s just tonight
How you gonna walk ahead
if you keep living blind?

Stuck in my same position,
you deserve so much more
There’s a whole world around us,
just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now, just let it go

The world will force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
Cause I know,
What’s in you is out there

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I’m trying to be patient (I’m trying to be patient)
the first step is the hardest (the hardest)
I know you can make it,
go ahead and take it

I’m Waiting, waiting, just waiting I’m waiting
I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

You’ll never enjoy your life
Living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?

    who cares if he wrote it or not? He sings it beautifully.

  14. T.D Says:

  15. Rookie90 Says:

    Is Greyson Chance gay? Everyone is saying he’s gay that’s why ellen is obsessing over him i mean it doesn t really matter coz he is still talented if he’s gay or not!!!

  16. Billy Says:

    Greyson Chance. You are my idol…..not. You are just another kid fake Justin Beiber. And all you little annoying girls have Chance fever (like Beiber fever). Listen to some real talent like Eminem, Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, Lupe Fiasco, 36 Mafia, T-Pain, Snoppe Dog, Juicy J, Drake and the rest of Young Money, Cash Money, and Wiz Khalfia!
