​Stranger in the Mirror

This song is by Tarnation and appears on the album Gentle Creatures (1995).

Keep your arms open wide love,
'Cause I'm coming home,
I don't know where I am but I don't care,
'Cause I know where I'm going.
I'm going where the voices,
In my head tell me to
I'd walk a thousand crooked miles,
To try to get back to you

Well I'm weary to the bone,
As I wake here alone,
With a pain that won't let me be
And there's a stranger in the mirror,
Staring back at me,
(Oh Lord, could it be, is that me ?)

These hands are shaking in the shadows,
Of the old morning sun
That's dripping through the window pane,
Lord, this feeling is second to none

I can almost see your smile,
And I can almost hear your voice
Rising high up above,
The flat land of Illinois
