Stranger in a Foreign Land

I came back to say hi
You gave me the cold shoulder
I spent the rest of the night drunk

My buddy asks what's wrong
"I only want to hold her"
He helps me forget about my funk

Be careful
For what you wish
You may get it

If things are wrong
Just be strong
Keep yourself alive

And now I wait for her
To awaken from her slumber
My heart and chest are on fire

I've got so much to say
But I know there's no salvation
I'm going to have to start again

And rumors have got around
I've lost the town I called home
I am more lost than I've ever been

Pull the shades
Cold rolls in
My room is frozen

Nowhere's safe
Nothing's sacred
What is left for me?
