Kris Kristofferson — The Stranger I Love lyrics

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 lean 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
