Jinks, Cody - Stranger Lyrics

Who's this stranger in the mirror
The one that's lookin' back at me?
He ain't familiar, I don't know this guy
Who in the world could it be?

It ain't me, there ain't no way
And the stranger is gettin' stranger everyday

The guy I'm lookin' for, he's a young man
He ain't scarred-up and gettin' old
He's a good kid from the country
Your eyes are big-city-cold

It ain't me, there ain't no way
And the stranger is gettin' stranger everyday

Maybe I'm goin' crazy
Could be losin' my mind
Lookin' for someone familiar
That I knew one time

Stranger, hear me talkin'
Listen up to what I have to say

Waitin' for an answer... silence
Oh and the stranger is gettin' stranger every day

Maybe I'm goin' crazy
Could be losin' my mind
Lookin' for someone familiar
That I knew one time

Who's this stranger in the mirror?

Jinks, Cody Stranger Comments
  1. Robert Mccluskey

    Dope is the most evil substance. My life was normal at one point in my life had a family a good family a home and a good job with a good future. It was not until I turned 35 that I knew what crystal meth was. Now I'm 40 no job no family and I'm homeless I tell myself everyday to today is the last time. I hate dope. But I'm going to get past this. Cody's music is real. This is just one of many that really makes me think about what I need to do to get back to we're I came from.

  2. Bobby Lyles

    Oi been goin threw hard times heard this song and made me think to realize I wasn't being my true self and changed me

  3. Oppie Taylor

  5. alta pape

    I felt and spoke every word before you said it. Damn, dude, you are our voice.

  6. Cynthia Dillard

  7. Cynthia Dillard

    One of his very best songs ...love it

  8. mac423

    If your too young, you wont understand this song until your mid 30s. Masterfully written

  9. Chuck Goodale

    I have listened to this song over and over just hits you hard brings life into perspective thank you sir

  10. Zippy Kimball

    Gives me chills!

    Cynthia Dillard

    Zippy Kimball when it gives you chills means it’s a damn good song

  11. Richard Rushing

    This is the sound that Country radio desperately needs!

  12. dozer dog

    Get ready a not so civil war is coming, be ready be smart and be safe

  13. Sara Dick

    I soooooo needed this today

  14. Brian Wade

    I got tix to the show!

  15. DatZortaw

    Had a horrible breakup, grandfather passing away and failed study all in less two weeks. Sometimes life gives you a good reality check. I'm over all three things and I live on (what else can you do) but, damn Cody, the person in the mirror is getting more and more different and stranger with stuff that happens in life. Your songs hit truly home, but I'm glad for all things that happened. It makes you think, drives you out of the comfort zone and makes you you. Perhaps its not a stranger in the mirror, but someone we were all along but refused to see.

  16. Cliff Krauel

    Dam after finding Cody Jinks I want to learn every song he has to put on my gig list

    Reminds me of my dad telling me that your body keeps getting older and older but your always that same person inside. Who you are inside never gets old, you only get wiser. Its the body outside that gets older and withers away.
