Lonely Stranger - Eric Clapton

Lonely Stranger

I must be
invisible
No one knows me
I have crawled
down dead end streets
On my hands and knees

I was born
with a ragin' thirst
A hunger to be free
But what I've learned
through the years
Don't encourage me

'Cause I'm a Lonely Stranger here
Well beyond my day
And I don't know what's goin' on
So I'll be on my way

When I walk
stay behind
Don't get to close to me
'Cause it's sure
to end in tears
So just let me be

Some will say
that I'm no good
Maybe I agree
Take a look
then walk away
That's all right with me

'Cause I'm a Lonely Stranger here
Well beyond my day
And I don't know what's goin' on
So I'll be on my way
