lonely stranger lyrics – eric clapton

i must be invisible
no one knows me
i have crawled down dead-end streets
on my hands and knees

i was born with a ragin’ thirst
a hunger to be free
but i’ve learned through the years
don’t encourage me

’cause i’m a lonely stranger here
well, beyond my day
and i don’t know what’s goin’ on
i’ll be on my way

yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)
yes, i will
yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)

when i walk, stay behind
don’t get close to me
’cause it’s sure to end in tears
so just let me be

some will say that i’m no good
maybe i agree
take a look then walk away
that’s all right with me

’cause i’m a lonely stranger here
well beyond my day
and i don’t know what’s goin’ on
i’ll be on my way

yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)
yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)

yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)
yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)

yes, i will
(i’ll be on my way)
(i’ll be on my way)
