Passing Stranger (Matthews Scott)

See the sign up ahead, it calls out your name It's a meaningful sign but it makes no sense They saw you pass on through with only one shoe And a mystified mind with an angel for a guide There's a destiny song that's meant for me But I'm weary of the soles of my innocent feet Like a single site you know it's all you've got So be sure to aim true with your eyes on full view There's nobody you can accuse The mirror reflects upon truth and from inside I feel bruised The mask that I wear is unsure Unable to find a known cure so I hide forevermore I was passing stranger with a name I can't remember I am going blind from the dust in my eyes But the ground back home seems so far away And I'm coughing up my lungs, but I know I've gotta stay I'm moving slow with nowhere to go I stumble on a sign 'One Mile To Dine' It takes a little time and I'm barely alive But I make it nonetheless with a shortage of breath The coffee you poured me is cold The paper I'm reading is old And that smile is not your own The clothes that I wear are soaked through I'm all out of luck for you And there's a million things I can't do Can't do, I can't do Something strangely familiar about the way I am I'm sitting next to the man with the unsteady hands He says, "How are you, son, where you been all week?" I recognize his voice even in my sleep Lord only knows what I got up to Maybe it's best for me if I just found my shoes And confirm my suspicions for heaven's sake And pick up my trail from my front gate There's nobody you can accuse The mirror portrays a bold truth And from inside it's what you do Start digging around and you'll find Missing for years your own life You're better off trying not to hide Not to hide, trying not to hide
