"Beautiful Stranger" as written by and William Orbit . Madonna....
Haven't we met?
Some kind of beautiful stranger
You could be good for me
I've had the taste for danger

If I'm smart then I'll run away
But I'm not so I guess I'll stay
Heaven forbid
I'll take my chance on a beautiful stranger

I looked into your eyes
And my world came tumbling down
You're the devil in disguise
That's why I'm singing this song

To know you
Is to love you
You're everywhere I go
And everybody knows
To love you
Is to be part of you
I paid for you with my tears
And swallowed my pride

Beautiful stranger
Beautiful stranger

If I'm smart then I'll run away
But I'm not so I guess I'll stay
Haven't you heard?
I fell in love with a beautiful stranger

I looked into your face
My heart was dancing all over the place
I'd like to change my point of view
If I could just forget about you

To know you
Is to love you
You're everywhere I go
And everybody knows

I looked into your eyes
And my world came tumbling down
You're the devil in disguise
That's why I'm singing this song to you

To know you
Is to love you
You're everywhere I go
And everybody knows

I paid for you with my tears
And swallowed my pride

Beautiful stranger
Beautiful stranger

    General CommentI have no idea what the guy's name is-but she had like a triangle(no not threesome shocking I know).
    Betwixt herself,him and Guy Ritchie. She was preggers by this guy and he actually treated her bad!
    *GASP*. Guy Ritchie apparently knock the guy out @ a party even.
    The song is about him...it's one of favorites of hers.

    MemoryI Love Beautiful Stranger. That's what Madonna truly is-a Beautiful Stranger who is a True Friend to us all. She is Touched by Magic, that Lady Evita Madge Ciccone!

    General CommentThis is the only Madonna song I've truly loved since "Vogue," although I am a big fan of almost everything from her first three albums. I think "Beautiful Stranger" has a unique sound in Madonna's catalog.

    General CommentThis is a very "groovy", Austin Powers, 60-ish song, and it puts me in this happy, hippy mood, for some reason. i love the lyrics. They are so cute.. and her voice sounds amazing!! It's very real, too. I can feel that "Beautiful Stranger" s--t, like when you had those couple of crushes in high school... it justs kinda puts this song in your head. Phat-ass song!
