The Statler Brothers — Stranger In My Place lyrics

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 on your face
But I just can't see a stranger in my place

I can see where we quarreled
I can see 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 things that make you cry
And looking back it seems I never showed you
And now I lay alone and wonder why

I can see where you might grow tired of dreams
That don't come true
I can see where I have fallen short
Of things I promised you
I can see through my tear-filled eyes
No love on your face
I must get used to seein' strangers in my place

I must get used to seein' strangers in my place
