"Stranger" as written by and John Vesely....
Turn Around
Turn Around and fix your eye in my direction
So there is a connection
I can't speak
I can't make a sound to somehow capture your attention
I'm staring at perfection
Take a look at me so you can see
How beautiful you are

You call me a stranger
You say I'm a danger
But all these thoughts are leaving you tonight
I'm broke and abandoned
You are an angel
Making all my dreams come true tonight

I'm confident
But I can't pretend I wasn't terrified to meet you
I knew you could see right through me
I saw my life flash right before my very eyes
And I knew just what we'd turn into
I was hoping that you could see
Take a look at me so you can see

You call me a stranger
You say I'm a danger
But all these thoughts are leaving you tonight
I'm broke and abandoned
You are an angel
Making all my dreams come true tonight

You are an angel
Making all my dreams come true tonight

Take a look at me so you can see
How beautiful you are

Your beauty seems so far away
I'd have to write a thousand songs to make you comprehend how beautiful you are

I know that I can't make you stay
But I would give my final breathe to make you understand how beautiful you are
Understand how beautiful you are

You call me a stranger
You say I'm a danger
But all these thoughts are leaving you tonight
I'm broke and abandoned
You are an angel
Making all my dreams come true tonight

You call me a stranger
You say I'm a danger
You call me a stranger

    General CommentThis song is about letting people in
    In this song there are two people who deeply care about each other. One won't let the other in to help them. Something bad has happened to them but they won't let the other help, like a stranger. The hurt person is afraid to let the other person in because they think it will make the other think of them diffrently once they truly know each other "You call me a stranger, you say I'm a danger" The other person won't give up and eventually they are let in (figurativly of course) "But all these thoughts are leaving you tonight" They are afraid at first when the start to learn about the person's past and how it affected them "I'm confident, But I can't pretend I wasn't terrified to meet you" The person now truely knows them they want to help them through the hard times "Take a look at me so you can see..." They want the person to see everyting they need to see in them. "I know that I can't make you stay But I would give my final breath To make you understand how beautiful you are" The person knows they might not allways be together so befroe they part ways they want to show how much they care and understand.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. It's just about being with someone who's super scared to let you into their life, and you feel like they mean the world to you...but they still feel like you're a stranger.

    General Comment"And any chance what we turn into
    I was hoping that you could see"

    I think this may have multiple meanings to different people but to me, it's my favorite line of possibly the whole new album, (back to the subject)
    it means to me that i have already 'fantasized' of what we could be in the future (lovers) and i wonder if you have had any thoughts on that subject, or have seen my own fantasy in your own mind.
    It reminds me of this BEAUTIFUL girl that sat just next to me, absouletly stunning. I just wondered what it could be (it'd be quite foolish to believe that hope, or want would come true) but i just wondered what she was thinking; about me, or if she was even thinking of me or what she had to do when she got home...
    I hope i stayed on subject. Sorry for any incorrect spelling

    General Commenthm, smith, that makes sense
    that puts it in a different perspective

    i think its just about someone you love who is scared to open up and its the only thing you want them to do
    and you jsut love them so much but nothing will change how they can't open up

    this song kills me

    General CommentThis is the song that caught my attention when i listened to the cd for the first time. and i really think it can have different meanings for everyone but to me its all about seeing someone for the first time. seeing something that catches your eye and just wondering what could happen if you talked to them or met them.
    But i can also see it as two people together and he just wants her to know how beautiful he thinks she is.

    either way its a great song :D
