Anne Murray - A Stranger In My Place Lyrics

I see the town where we were born
I see the place we were raised
I see all the things you wanted that I never gave
I see sadness, I see sorrow, I see pain on your face
But I just can't see a stranger in my place.

I can see now where we quarreled
I can see now I was wrong
I can see where you might weaken when I wasn't strong
I see memories of a love gone bad that time can't erase
But I just can't see a stranger in my place.

No one seems to know you quite like I do
No one knows the things that make you cry
Looking back it seems I never showed you
And now I lie alone and wonder why.

I can see now where you might grow tired
Of dreams that don't come true
I can see where I have fallen short
Of the things I promised you
I can see now through my tear filled eyes
No love on your face
But I just can't see a stranger in my place.
