The Stranger Inside Me

Written by: Donna Jones

There's a stranger that lives deep inside of me
Who always shows up most unexpectedly
Usually with no one else around to see
Or demand me to be different than I want to be

This stranger hides far away from sight
To avoid causing yet another fight
Of its own opinion it has no right
Maybe I'll meet this stranger here tonight

I'll have candles and a bubble bath
Close the door to avoid confronting the wrath
Invite it in, go somewhere far away
Dream of my life, of another day

A bang on the door, it's clear to me
It's time to go back to reality
The stranger goes back inside where you can't see
Waiting to appear again at its next opportunity
