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 trying 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
