Stranger Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

Maybe she was smilin' in the mirror
Maybe I was too, 'cause I was stoned
Singin' every sad song on the juke-box one more time
Honey, they were hittin' close to home

And I said, "Maybe this'll make you think I'm crazy
Honey, don't feel lonesome if you do
If you wanna make a young man happy one more time
I'd sure like to spend the night with you"

And she said, "Stranger, shut out the light and lead me
Somewhere, shut out the shadows, too
And while we lay there, makin' believe you love me
Stranger, could I believe in you"

Maybe you got all you got together
Maybe you keep rollin' like a stone
Maybe some old lonesome song'll take you by surprise
And you just say, "Little more alone"

Singing, "Stranger, shut out the light and lead me
Somewhere, shut out the shadows, too
And while we lay there, makin' believe you love me
Stranger, could I believe in you"

Keep singing, "Stranger, shut out the light and lead me
Somewhere, shut out the shadows, too
And while we lay there, makin' believe you love me
Stranger, could I believe in you"

Singing, "Stranger, shut out the light and lead me"
