​Stranger

This song is by Boy & Bear and appears on the album Harlequin Dream (2013).

Old man was it worth it?
Was it all that it seemed
Did you ever find the carcass of your dreams?

Oh, you must know I was young
The fear I had not yet outrun
Though I was never meant to hurt you but I do
I do

It's got a hold of me and it keeps coming away
And you are always looking at me from afar
I can't change
I'm a stranger to my nature
Would you love me anyway
If my head don't talk right
Don't let me down old man

Through the swollen eyes of your Ritalin
It's like a stranger's standing over me
Some kind of faceless beast that watches as I sleep

Now there's a hard lump in my throat
And all the best times that you've ever known
Are all just fading off the back of my sanity
Oh please,
I made you weep

It's got a hold of me and it keeps coming away
But you are always looking at me from afar,
I didn't change
I'm a stranger to my nature
Would you love me anyway
If my head don't talk right
Don't let me down, old man

I want it back
I left the seeds of a memory
And I wondered if I've come too far
