"Friend to a Stranger" as written by and Emerson Hart....
From a friend to a stranger
How's your life
In your current situation
Did they hold you hostage
Did they tell you lies
Just to add to your frustration
Oh, my heart

So you drown the whole day in your troubled heart
On the road to change your life
Not to give it all away
But to sing your song
'Cause in the end that's where you arrive

Oh, my heart it breaks me
When I hear them calling me
Oh, to see inside myself
A guy can see that no one else could ever know
The way we'd end up please

So, from a friend to a stranger
How's your life
In your current situation
Wish you happiness and freedom
And I wish you life
When you reach your destination
Your destination
Your destination

    General CommentI believe these lyrics are incorrect. Here is what I believe they are.

    From a friend to a stranger, how's your life in your current situation
    Did they hold you hostage?
    Did they tell you lies?
    Just to add to your frustration
    Oh my heart...

    So you travel holy and you travel high
    On a road to change your life
    Not to give it all the way but to sing your song
    'Cause in the end that's when you arrive

    Oh my heart it brings me pain
    When I hear them call your name

    Oh to see inside myself
    Like I can see--But no one else
    could ever know the way we'd end up here

    So from a friend to a stranger how's your life in your current situation?
    Wish you happiness and freedom and I wish you life
    When you reach your destination
    Your destination (x3)

    ** By the way....Can anyone interpret the meaning of this song?

    General Commentto me, it's about someone that separated from a good friend, cause they wanted different things in life..
    and she left her friend all alone and "heartbroken"..
    then, they meet again, and the one that got left "heartbroken" ask her former friend how she's in life, 'cause he's now better, and don't think about all the sadness she sometime caused her

    that's the story i see everytime i hear this song..
    so touching..
    really wraps up my life right now.. =(

    General CommentI feel as though it's simply about two people who have grown apart. From a friend to a stranger... It's almost as though one wanted new and great things for their live so they move forward with their life.

    General CommentThis guy is trying to find himself. He is his own friend, yet he is a stranger to himself; he doesn't know who he is. That is where I am in my life, and that's how I see the song. It's a rough patch that we must all overcome. We must be happy with ourselves and recognize ourselves before we can move forward.

    My InterpretationThis song is absolutely haunting and beautiful. I have a good friend who I have had a long friendship with, and we have been through a lot together. She and I are both now married to other people, and she and her husband live in a different state now. This song always makes me think of her.

    My interpretation of this song is something similar to what I have been through with my friend. We were friends, then at least one of us wondered if maybe we should be more than friends, then we didn't talk for awhile due to the emotions revealed when one of us told the other about our thoughts and feelings. Now, these friends are separated by distance and time and neither of them could have ever forseen where time would have taken them. However, there is still a deep bond between the two that will always exist regardless of where they are and what their lives have in store for them.

    Just my interpretation, of course.
