"Stranger By The Day" as written by and Ed/lynch Brown....
Snow is falling from the sky, in the middle of July
Sun was shining in my eyes again last night
Alarm goes off without a sound, the silence is so loud
Something isn't right

Footsteps echo down the hall, no one's there at all
Dial your number but your voice says "I'm not home"
Everything is inside out, I don't know what it's about

It keeps getting stranger by the day
Stranger by the day
It keeps getting stranger by the day
Stranger by the day

Going for a walk outside, to see what I can find
No reflections in the windows I pass by
It feels hotter in the shade, water runs up from the drain
Something's going on

Conversations with a mime, stared at by the blind
Imagination must be working overtime
The world is upside down, everything is turned around

It keeps getting stranger by the day
Stranger by the day
It keeps getting stranger by the day
Stranger by the day, yeah

By the time I reach your door, I can't take anymore
I just happened to be in your neighborhood
I'm the one who gets surprised, I don't believe my eyes
Your alibi's no good

Whatever happened to the world
Whatever happened to the girl I thought I knew
It just can't be true, I guess I'm losing you

Stranger by the day
Stranger by the day
It keeps getting stranger by the day
Stranger by the day

Oh, stranger by the day

    General Commentat the part where u put "No reflection(s) in the windows I pass by" its about him not being able to c his reflection meaning somehting isnt rite or maybe he has (in referrence to ghosts and such) uve lost ur soul ro r dead, so its "no reflection is in, (or reflection's) the windows i pass by"

    General Commentdamn all of you!! this song is about lies and excuses! this is a song about falling in love with a girl that is kinda close to him. when he he started to show his feelings, it became uncomfortable for him because the girl is not intersted with him. it became strange for him everyday bacause he thought this girl was the girl he always wanted. the girl that he knew that would realyy care for him before they really knew each other wneh they are stiil friends

    General Commenti agree w tommib it sounds like hes been cheated on and now everything is backward hes so confused because the grl was so right only to find she lied to him the whole time... in essense making him doubt everything else that he once saw as true

    General CommentI've always thought this song was about how something was really wrong: i.e. the girl was cheating on him, but because it mattered so much it caused everything else to go wrong. He feels like everything's turned upside down and messed up.
    Some of the lyrcis are especially clever: instead of saying one thing, like it's snowing in summer, he sings a much longer, more descriptive line. Possibly helps that it rhymes better! ANyway, great song, I love listening to it loud when I'm on my own.
