Stranger In A Strange Land Lyrics

by U2

Stranger, stranger in a strange land
He looked at me like I was the one who should run

We asked him to smile for a photograph
Waited awhile to see if we could make him laugh
A soldier asked for a cigarette, his smiling face I can't forget
He looked like me across the street, but that's a long way here

And I wish you were here
And I wish you were here

Stranger, a stranger in a strange land
He looked at me like I was the one who should run

I watched as he watched us get back on the bus
I watched the way it was
The way it was when he was with us
And I really don't mind sleeping on the floor
But I couldn't sleep after what I saw
I wrote this letter to tell you the way I feel

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
To see what I could see
To hear and I wish you were here
