"The Stranger" as written by and Marc Roberge Sabelle Breer"....
Crossing this country, I'm stalling
I'm coming down
Over my head, I'm falling
Will I be found?
I've had to be a million places at once
That's not me

I'm a stranger
On the outside
When I'm not right next to you
I remember
How to get there
Will you be there when I'm coming through

Crossing this room to my lovely
My saving grace
Promise that time hasn't lost me
And don't turn away
I've had to be a million faces at once
That's not me
That's not me

I'm a stranger
On the outside
When I'm not right next to you
I remember
How to get there
Will you be there when I'm coming through

Take me back into your arms where I belong
There I'm no stranger to you

The mirror has broken
What do you see?
A million of you and a million me
The future's unspoken
Who do you see?
The one on the outside
That's not me

I'm a stranger
On the outside
When I'm not right next to you
I remember
How to get there
Will you be there when I'm coming through?

I'm a stranger (I'm a stranger)
On the outside (On the outside)
When I'm not right (When I'm not right)
Next to you
I'm a stranger (I'm a stranger)
On the outside (On the outside)
When I'm not right (When I'm not right)
Next to you

I'm a lonely man walking
Searching for my home
Been a thousand year
And here I am, I'm all alone
I'm out looking for my lovely
One to save the day
Here I come, I'm no stranger today

    General Commenti think this song is about how a guy feels so alone and unloved in the world but when he is next to that special girl, she makes everything different and he actually feels like he is real. awesome song, i cant stop listening to it.

    General CommentYo Brah (or gal) i totally believe you are right. But i believe that he has finally found that person, and he is just sooo happy to not be "on the outside" anymore. It is just a great song about being with the person that makes you feel as good as this song makes you feel.

    General Commenti'm really surprised that this song wasnt more popular than Love and Memories.....everyone seems to hate it....i mean, i'm defiantely a bigger fan of Souls Aflame and The Wanderer as albums in general, but i think this is one of their stronger songs on SoAS
