"Stranger" as written by James Tamborello and Meredith Landman....
I still remember the first time I saw you
In the library lift up to the twenty-fourth floor
From where I stood you looked like an angel
So I didn't move until you walked out the door

The metro
The bus stops
The market
The disco

Blank CD's
In strip malls
In restaurants
In juice bars

In hallways
In parties
The salon
The airport

In the rain
In the streets
In sunshine
In short sleeves

In makeup
At night clubs
On the dance floor
All around

In the evening
At sunrise
At lunchtime
At midnight

Through windows
Of taxis
Classrooms
Highrises

I fell in love the first time I saw you
Even though we never met
And I still see you at the clubs and in cafes
And every night you're in my dreams

It's true, you might be a stranger
But you're not that strange to me
To you, I know I'm a stranger
But please don't run away from me
Away from me

I can always rely on you to be there
Looking up behind the cash register
If we met, if we rang all our good times
I can't disappoint you with only my eyes

It's true, you might be a stranger
But you're not that strange to me
To you, I know I'm a stranger
And that's the way I want it to be

The metro
The bus stop
The market
The disco

On CD's
In strip malls
In restaurants
In juice bars

At night clubs
At parties
A salon
An airport

Through windows
Of taxis
Apartments
Highrises

    General CommentAgreed... I love it. Special meaning cause I like this guy who comes into the place I work all the time, but I would never say anything to him. It's probably better that I don't. This song is perfect for it. Plus I feel less creepy, knowing it can be seen as sweet... what with there being a song about it and all.

    General Commentthis song makes me smile because it reminds me of how I used to feel about someone. I think a lot of other people can relate to it... because I know that there's been at least one person (in our lives) that we've "loved" from afar.

    theres not a person alive that doesnt know that feeling and remember a time when it happened or at least the feeling they got from it.

    amazing song. i love the list of places this could happen.

    i really like it flips and they admire each other from a distance. at first listen i didnt expect that.

    love it

    General Commentwhoeee..i love all figurine song, and personally "stranger" is the best one to me. Kinda remind me of movie "closer", how a stranger is mysteriously attractive..

    i think, there's somekind of secure feeling if you feel in love with a stranger, the excitement is high, and you may fantasize endlessly about this stranger..
    it's like having only the phisical appearance, then you could imagine and put whatsoever behaviour that you wish-or think he is. --voila, you got a perfect man --

    the reason the want to stay being stranger is too keep this feeling..if you get to know better, you may realize, he/she is not the way you thought he was..and it bring dissapointment.

    just my oppinion...such a sweet song, wrapped in electronic way...NICE

    General CommentWow!
    If there was one song that could sum up my current mentality it's defiantly this.

    Kinda makes me want to do something, because you truly don't know what the other person is thinking. And who knows she might be thinking the same thing as you are, as this song amazingly puts it. - In other words take a chance.
