THE OUTSIDER

(Guy Thomas)  1976

Fading in and out tonight
It's the outsider
He'll hold you closely by his side
And then he walks away
He sees the world as just an illusion
He says each word is just a game 
Nobody knows him or his lonely mind
Take him or leave him
He's the stranger

He sends his heat-seeking missiles
Up into the sky
He's gonna leave you a vapor trail  
That says good-bye
He'll insist it was just an accident
It's just his way of being kind
He couldn't be more desperately
In search of what he can't find 
And without a reason
He's a stranger

Counting his points before he hits the mark
Sizing his goal before his gain
Running the minutes down in blinding speed
He can afford to lose them
He's a stranger
The outsider
