Chris Whitley – Alien lyrics

Everybody knows
I can tell how you fill your clothes
I can see it at the edge of your smile
So strange about the dormant desire

But everybody knows the alien
I can tell how you try to pretend
You can see now, I got a foreign friend
Everybody knows the alien

Everybody knows
I can feel it as the tension grows
I can see it at the edge of your eyes
So strange how it lights up the sky

But everybody knows the alien
I can tell how you try to pretend
You can see now, I got a foreign friend
Everybody knows the alien

Everybody knows the alien
I can tell how you try to pretend
You can see now, I got a foreign friend
Everybody knows the alien

Everyone come out
Got shades for the shadows of doubt
Get blind, it's most too clear
Could get killed by beauty and fear

Porcelain face on a steel device
Mind of glass and a mask of ice
Someone is a million years from home
Someone is a stranger and is never alone

Because everybody knows the alien
I can tell how you try to pretend
You can see now, I got a foreign friend
Everybody knows the alien

Everybody knows the alien
I can tell how you try to pretend
You can see now, I got a foreign friend
Everybody knows the alien

But everybody knows the alien
But everybody knows the alien
But everybody knows the alien
