Travelling the road, last known is where I want to be
My compass directing, electing, an open road with golden trees
But there's an old man in need on the ground, I try not to make a sound
He holds out his hand as I walk away, I hear him say

Please don't be a stranger in my place

Travelling come to a tavern for a momentary rest
I see the old man that I passed on the road in his distress
As I turned to go I can hear him say, "Son, stay. Have a drink, I'll pay."
Let bygones be gone, it's all in the past, we raise a glass

Please don't be a stranger in my place

What if I could be what you wanted me to be
What if I could see what you wanted me to see
Come on and show me

Please don't be a stranger in my place

    General CommentI love this song! So freaking much!

    I found it one day in English class when I on YouTube. I don't even know how I found it but I'm so glad I did. As soon as I got home I downloaded the song.
    I love their sound, its so different. Kind of reminds you of The Beatles, no? (Whom I also have a huge infautation with)

    Its just a very happy song, I think. Representing the random daily things that can happen, and what a small world we live in. How you can meet someone in a park, and then later on, in a bar. (As seen in the video).
