the stranger i love lyrics – 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
but if you wanna make a young man happy one more time
i’d sure like to spend the night with you

chorus:
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 leave you just a little more alone

chorus:
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

chorus:
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
