By eric clapton

I must be invisible;
No one knows me.
I have crawled down dead-end streets
On my hands and knees.

I was born with a ragin thirst,
A hunger to be free,
But Ive learned through the years.
Don't encourage me.

Cause Im a lonely stranger here,
Well beyond my day.
And I don't know what's goin on,
So I'll be on my way.

When I walk, stay behind;
Don't get close to me,
Cause it's sure to end in tears,
So just let me be.

Some will say that Im no good;
Maybe I agree.
Take a look then walk away.
That's all right with me.

Chorus

    Walking the earth with a yearning to be free from the troubles found in the flesh, finding redemption knowing it is a lonely road that few find, and with the knowledge that the days are short not wanting any disruption to a new found freedom.
