Lyrics

<p>I&rsquo;m the universal stranger</p>
<p>Have you seen my face before?</p>
<p>The moment I sense danger</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ve got one foot out the door</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I&rsquo;m a wanted man</p>
<p>I&rsquo;m running from town to town</p>
<p>I&rsquo;m running from the blues</p>
<p>But the blues always track me down</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Each time you take my hand</p>
<p>Child, you make me want to smile</p>
<p>But you must understand</p>
<p>I can only stay a while</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>(Chorus)</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I think the coast is clear</p>
<p>And they take me by surprise</p>
<p>I try to disappear</p>
<p>But they see through my disguise</p>
<p>They&rsquo;re ruthless and they&rsquo;re cunning</p>
<p>And they always get their man</p>
<p>That&rsquo;s why I keep on running</p>
<p>Just as fast as I can</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I&rsquo;m the universal stranger</p>
<p>First you know me then you don&rsquo;t</p>
<p>A shadowy shape-changer</p>
<p>I could stay but I won&rsquo;t</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>(Chorus)</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
