Stranger in The House - Elvis Costello

This never was one of the great romances
But I thought you always had those young girl's eyes
But now they look in tired and bitter glances
At the ghost of the man who walks 'round in my disguise

I get the feelin' that I don't belong here
But there's no welcome in the window anyway
And I look down for a number on my key chain
'Cause it feels more like a hotel everyday

Chorus:
There's a stranger in the house, nobody's seen his face
But everybody says he's taken my place
There's a stranger in the house no one will ever see
But everybody says he looks like me

And now you say you got no expectations
But I know you also miss those carefree days
And for all the angry words that pass between us
You still don't understand me when I say

-chorus-

But everybody says he looks like me
