Elvis Costello Elvis Costello , George Jones with Clover & Elvis Costello Bill Kirchen Stranger in the House Lyrics

This never was one of the great romances
But I thought you`d always have those young girl`s eyes
But now they look in tired and bitter glances
At the ghost of a man who walks `round in my disguise

I get the feeling that I don`t belong here
But there`s no welcome in the window anyway
And I look down for a number on my key chain
`Cause it feels more like a hotel everyday

There`s a stranger in the house; nobody`s seen his face
But everybody says he`s taken my place
There`s a stranger in the house no one will ever see
But everybody says he looks like me

And now you say you've got no expectations
But I know you also miss those carefree days
And for all the angry words that passed between us
You still don`t understand me when I say

There`s a stranger in the house; nobody`s seen his face
But everybody says he`s taken my place
There`s a stranger in the house no one will ever see
But everybody says he looks like me
