"Stranger" as written by and Charles Fink....
Nobody believes me when I tell them that you're out of your mind
Nobody believes me when I tell them that there's so much you hide
You treat me like a queen when we go out
Wanna show everyone what our love's about
All wrapped up in me whenever there is a crowd
But when no ones around

There's no kindness in your eyes
The way you look at me, it's just not right
I can tell what's going on this time
There's a stranger in my life
You're not the person that I once knew
Are you scared to let them know it's you?
If they could only see you like I do
Then they would see a stranger too

Did I ever do anything that was this cruel to you?
Did I ever make you wonder who was standing in the room?
You made yourself look perfect in every way
So, when this goes down, I'm the one that will be blamed
Your plan is working, so you can just walk away
Baby, your secret's safe

There's no kindness in your eyes
The way you look at me, it's just not right
I can tell what's going on this time
There's a stranger in my life
You're not the person that I once knew
Are you scared to let them know it's you?
If they could only see you like I do
Then they would see a stranger too

Such a long way back from this place we are at
When I think of all the time I've wasted, I could cry

There's no kindness in your eyes
The way you look at me, it's just not right
I can tell what's going on this time
There's a stranger in my life
You're not the person that I once knew
Are you scared to let them know it's you?
If they could only see you like I do
Then they would see a stranger too

There's no kindness in your eyes
The way you look at me, it's just not right
I can tell what's going on this time
There's a stranger in my life
You're not the person that I once knew
Are you scared to let them know it's you?
If they could only see you like I do
Then they would see a stranger too

    General CommentShe said this was about her parents? Please. It's obviously about Joel.

    "You treat me like a queen when we go out,
    wanna show everyone what our love's about
    All wrapped up in me whenever there is a crowd"

    "Baby your secret's safe"

    "Such a long way back, from this place we arrived
    When I think of all the time I've wasted, I could cry"

    This song is obviously about a love relationship, not a parents/child relationship.

    General CommentMaybe it's supposed to be from her mother's perspective.
    And they ("If they could only see you like I do") could be their kids.

    General CommentSomewhere between Hilary recording new material for last CD and her new CD, her parents got divorced.
    Hilary is quoted several times in magazines that this is about her parents split, through her mother's perspective. Her Dad was having an affair.

    General CommentPardon me for saying this, but this song can be really deep for a Hilary Duff song! At first I was like, a song about a boy, big woop. But now, looking at it as if she's singing through her mothers prospective; not only does it make perfect sense, it's totally moving. The video is smokin' hot but at the same time makes me want to cry. :p

    General CommentI don't think that belly dancing thing is really working for her.

    Oh, and the lyrics make absolutely no sense.
