THE STRANGER

I’ve come too far upon the road
to stop and linger
I know that times relentless march
will still go on
Inside the fire I still can see
a glowing ember
The flame that’s burned inside of me
so very long

I think back to a time that
I can still remember
Back in the days when I was young
and I was strong
And every day I knew was filled up
with the wonder
And the nights could never, ever
last too long

So here I am again a stranger
on the journey
Upon a road I pray will someday
lead me home
For I’ve grown weary of this world
I see around me
And a peace too long that
I have never known
