Stanger, stranger in a strange land
He looked at me like I
Was the one who should run
I watched as he watched us
Get back on the bus
I watched the way it was
The way it was when he was with us
And I really don't mind
Sleeping on the floor
But I can't sleep after what I saw
I wrote this letter to tell you
The way I feel oh...
 AmGD
 I wish you were here    
 AmGD
 I wish you were here

To see what I could see

To hear
