Billy Squier — Stranger To Myself lyrics

Stranger, stranger...

I... Don't know where I'm goin'
But what I'm leavin' behind... I already know
Run... The streets have no ending
But what I'm hopin' to find... I just can't ignore

I live to be strong... I want to be king
But I act so unwise--look how foolish I've been
When time after time... I try to be me
But I look down inside--it's the stranger I see

Stranger, stranger... Stranger to myself
I was born on the other side of life
I'm just a stranger... Stranger to myself
Never thought I'd ever cry
Never thought we'd ever be denied

Stranger to myself...

Why... Are my thoughts so uncertain
Will I ever unwind... This damage I've done
Love--it's a fight--it's your life--it's not over
Can you look at me now... And show me I'm wrong

For once in my life... I want to be good
But I'm playin' the bad boy... Much more than I should
When time after time... I try to explain
Those voices inside... They're callin' out again

Stranger, stranger... Stranger to myself
I was born on the other side of life
I'm just a stranger... Stranger to myself
Who'd have thought we'd ever hide
Who'd have thought we'd ever be denied

Now don't ask me why... I don't really know
But sure as I'm breathin' I've got to let it go
The eyes of a man... See the world of a child
The door it lies open--won't you step inside and see the

Stranger... Stranger to myself
I was born on the other side of life
I'm just a stranger... Stranger to myself
Who's to fall if you won't try
Who's to fall if you won't try... You won't try... You don't wanna try

Stranger to myself
