Stranger in Paradise

composer: Александр Порфирьевич Бородин, George Forrest, Robert Wright
lyricist: Robert Wright, George Forrest

Take my hand I'm a stranger in paradise
All lost in a wonderland
A stranger in paradise
If I stand starry-eyed
That's a danger in paradise
For mortals who stand beside an angel like her

I saw her face and I ascended
Out of the commonplace into the rare
Somewhere in space I hang suspended
Until I know there's a chance that she cares

Won't you answer this fervent prayer
Of a stranger in paradise?
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for

But open your angel's arms
To the strangers in paradise
And tell us that we need be
Strangers no more

I saw her face and I ascended
Out of the commonplace into the rare
Somewhere in space I hang suspended
Until I know there's a chance that she cares

Won't you answer this fervent prayer
Of a stranger in paradise?
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for

But open your angel's arms
To the strangers in paradise
And tell us that we need be
Strangers no more

Why Does It Have to Be Me?
