I am a stranger

 

I am not your bird

I am not your sea

 

I am not your inspiration

I am not your tree

 

I am not your ear ear

I am not your flirt

 

I am not your overseer

I am not your dirt

 

I am not your Ledbetter

I am not your Freud

 

I am not your fairy tale

I am not your every wish for

 

I am not your Prophet

I am not your favor and favor and favor

 

I am a

stranger
