Lyrical poem about danger lurking for a lonely woman

A chapter in the book Reflections Of Color

The Stranger

by Brett Matthew West

The Stranger

There's a stranger on the back roads driving slowly into town.
He's a hundred miles from nowhere and the sun is going down.
You'd better run for cover. Stay out of his way.
He's a danger to you darling, and, he's wanting you today.

You fancy him a hero in a troubled sort of way.
You'll give your heart and soul to him, but, you can't make him stay.
He'll leave you in the shadows somewhere down the line.
When you wake up in the morning you'll be the last thing on his mind.

Like notches on his pistol you're a love casualty.
Don't think that you're the only one he's made a memory.
There's a lot of other women who have fallen by his side.
He's just the latest reason for the tears that you cried.

He's a gambler, and a loser, and he's bet it all before.
He's dealing off the bottom and he's looking for a score.
The cards are stacked against him and he's gonna have to draw.
Before this night is over another heart will fall.

There's a stranger on the back roads driving slowly into town.
He's a hundred miles from nowhere and the sun is going down.
