"Sleeping With a Stranger" as written by and Matthew Perryman Jones....
Caught in a wildfire
Choking on the flames
Of a strange pyre
The ashes of a dream
Feed the fantasy

Locked on the inside
Tangled up in chains
And the crazy lies
Terrified and lame
In silence we escape

[Chorus:]
Oh, kiss my heart awake
We're so far away
I'm sleeping with a stranger

Lonely and tongue-tied,
All is out of place
And the words you hide
Are written on your face
I'm lifting up the lace

[Chorus:]
Oh, kiss my heart awake
We're so far away
I'm sleeping with a stranger

Come back to me
Stop whispering
Have we fallen far too deep?

[Chorus:]
Oh, kiss my heart awake
We're so far away
I'm sleeping with a stranger
Oh, kiss my heart awake
We're so far away
I'm sleeping with a stranger
