Lyrics

Living all my life as a shepherd's son
I knew naught of the world
With the rain washing down on me
I saw a man approach

A stranger came visit us
He knew all the stories
The stranger was no bard at loss
'Cause he knew all the stories

He stayed in our house for a whole long week
Entertaining us all
As the life went on and on
I remembered what he told me

A stranger came visit us
He knew all the stories
The stranger was no bard at loss
'Cause he knew all the stories

He told me:
"You could have been saved
Living in freedom
Instead they sent you 'way
To a life lost to the feeding of home"

I had no idea what he meant with that
Though I didn't really care
I would live like I wanted to
No matter what they told me

A stranger came visit us
He knew all the stories
The stranger was no bard at loss
'Cause he knew all the stories

A stranger came to visit us
He knew all the stories
The stranger was no bard at loss
'Cause he knew all the stories of life
