  • Stranger than the sunrise
    Darker than the night
    Fiercer than a rainstorm
    This is man's delight
    This is man's delight

    Weaker than a moment
    And hot as any fire
    Blinder than the blind eye
    This is man's desire
    This is man's desire

    I ran to a place in the open sea
    Where I pledged
    My life to the sun
    It was good for a while
    I could laugh, I could smile
    But when I woke up one day
    The sun had gone

    So what of my meaning
    What am I trying to say
    What of my caution
    I'm a man anyway
    I'm a man anyway Writer/s: KEN HENSLEY
