The Stranger
lyrics & music by carrie clark

There’s a stranger that watches from the foot of the stairs
And he hides in the dark so you won’t notice him there
But his presence is darker than any despair you could dream

He walks with a cane, but without a limp
And he’ll darken your doorway without coming in
While you wonder why hairs stand straight on your neck just the same

Cold is the feeling you get when you grow old forgetting just what it was
Feeling safe waking up to the sound of rain

Another dark night and you feel him move in
May be just down the hall, but he’s crawled under your skin
And the tap of his cane on the floor is like walls caving in

There are monsters that walk among us all through the day
And they dress in plain clothes but their eyes give them away
Cause their darkness is deep and your eyes say they must look away

Night is the part of the day when your mind starts wasting away
Through the lost minutes unraveling like a scarf made of clay.

There’s a stranger that watches from the foot of the stairs
And he hides in the dark so you won’t notice him there
But his presence is darker than any despair you could dream
