The Stranger I Love

The Stranger I Love

Kris Kristofferson

I've been a simple man and I've been insane
And I've been a vagabond and I've been a king, yeah
But I've been a better man just tryin' to please the stranger I love

Lost in a wilderness, darker than pain, drawn to her loneliness just like a flame
The closer we come the more that I learn, the stranger I love
Bad as I loved her, I ain't afraid we'll be together some lovin' way

I'll be her lover just as long as I can, then when it's over, she'll need a friend
So I'll take her hand-me-downs, I'll take the blame
I'll be a hang-around, I ain't ashamed
'Cause the longer I love her, the more I believe the stranger I love.
