Stranger In My House
Lyrics
There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
And I'm feeling all alone, yeah
There's a stranger in my house

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
And she doesn't seem to know, no
There's a stranger in my house

Go through my old front door
Dog basket by the fireside, kids' bedroom
And the kitchen on the right
Everything's still the same
The old brown leather sofa
And the ever-broken light

But everything has changed
Don't know it'll ever be the same

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
And I'm feeling all alone, yeah
There's a stranger in my house

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
And she doesn't seem to know, no
There's a stranger in my house

We used to laugh and joke and fool around,
Make pancakes in the mornings
And love in the afternoons
And Christmas with her family
Though she's always right here with me
She left me all too soon

I used to brush her long black hair
Now does she even know I'm there

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
And I'm feeling all alone, yeah
There's a stranger in my house

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
And she doesn't seem to know, no
There's a stranger in my house

I'm still here and living with the memories
And still looking or clues
Somewhere behind her eyes
And maybe some recognition
To reboot all her systems
And spring her back to life

She's traveling on through her own mind
While she's been with me all this time

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
Don't think she's ever coming home, no
There's a stranger in my house

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
It's like I'm living on my own, yeah
There's a stranger in my house

There's a stranger in my house
There's a stranger in my house
Sometimes I think I can't go on, no
There's a stranger in my house
