Lyrics

Happy Stranger

It was not every day I came down this way
But lately it seems I’m surrounded
I knew it was wrong and I never stayed long
Besides which he’d never allow it
But now he’s gone away and I can’t help but stray
To this place with its outlook so clouded
Can’t find my way back, that’s what he was good at
But he’s not here to lead me around it
Yes he’s gone, he’s gone
And I don’t know when I will see him again, he’s gone

Chorus:
And I can’t see the wood for the trees
I can’t see the flowers for the weeds
Oh happy stranger that’s me
Where are you now?

Oh well he’d say that things were the best that they’d been
What with all of the things I’ve been gifted
But since he’s gone away, if I lived the best day of my life it wouldn’t leave my mood lifted
He’d have the answering line to my every whine
He’d see magnificence in all this desolation
And I’d laugh once again, even though nothing changed
Oh but I’ve not seen him in ages
Yes he’s gone, he’s gone
He’s deserted his post when I need him the most, he’s gone
(Repeat chorus)
