A Stranger in My Place
I see the town where we were born,
I see the place we were raised,
I see all the things you wanted
That I never gave.

I see sadness, I see sorrow,
I see pain in your face,
But I just can't see
A stranger in my place.

I can see now where we quarrelled,
I can see now I was wrong,
I can see where you might weaken
When I wasn't strong.

I see mem'ries of a love gone bad
That time cannot erase,
But I just can't see
A stranger in my place.

No one seems to know you quite like I do,
No one knows the thigs that make you cry.
Looking back it seems I never showed you,
And now I lay alone and wonder why.

I can see now where you might grow tired
Of dreams that don't come true,
I can see where I have fallen short
Of the things I promised you.

I can see now through my tear filled eyes
No love on your face,
I must get used to seein'
Strangers in my place...
