lyrics

Borne to a stranger's land
Live any way I can
I'm at your mercy like a flower in the sand

Do you know what it's like to be
Without friend or family,
To rely on a stranger's charity?
I never chose this life for me

Well I have a lot to learn
In the fire praying I won't burn
Stranger won't you teach me like only you could,
Stranger won't you love me like a neighbor should?

My folks, they are long gone
Sent back to where they belong
Nobody asked me if it's right or wrong
Now I've got to make it on my own

Well I am the same as you
Believe what I say is true
I'd never bring any harm to you
I just want a chance at a good life too

Well I have a lot to see
In the land of my destiny
Stranger won't you show me like only you could,
Stranger won't you love me like a neighbor should?

Stranger won't you love me like only you could,
Stranger won't you love me like a neighbor should?
