Mm, mm oh

I don't understand
You look just like the man
In the picture by our bed
The suspense is pounding and clouding up my head
I'm checking your clothes
And you wear the same size shoe
You sleep in his spot and you're driving his car
But I don't know just who you are

There's a stranger in my house
It took a while to figure out
There's no way you could be who you say you are
You got to be someone else
'Cause he wouldn't touch me like that
And he wouldn't treat me like you do (you do)
He would adore me, he wouldn't ignore me
So I'm convinced there's a stranger in my house

Not sure who you are
Don't see your shadow around when you walk
You're leaving no kisses
Goodbye with no words
If these walls could talk
They would have nothing to tell

So what could it be
Is there someone imitating me
Could she be taking my place
Look me in the face
And tell me that I'm wrong when I say

There's a stranger in my house
It took a while to figure out
There's no way you could be who you say you are
You got to be someone else
'Cause he wouldn't touch me like that
And he wouldn't treat me like you do (you do)
He would adore me, he wouldn't ignore me
So I'm convinced there's a
Stranger in my house

Pop quiz
Tell me where we first kissed
Tell me where my spot is
Tell me if I like it, love it
Or could it be
That the stranger is me
Have I changed so drastically
Is it I want more for me
And you remain the same

There's a stranger in my house
It took a while to figure out
(It took a while to figure out)
You can't be who you say you are
You gotta be someone else
'Cause he wouldn't touch me like that
And he wouldn't treat me like you do
He would adore me, he wouldn't ignore me
So I am convinced there's a stranger in my house

There's a stranger in my house (woo)
It took a while to figure out
(It took a while to figure out)
You can't be who you say you are
You gotta be someone else
'Cause he wouldn't touch me like that
And he wouldn't treat me like you do
He would adore me, he wouldn't ignore me
I am convinced there's a stranger in my house

Oh, oh
Oh yeah

    General CommentShe's singing about how her guy is acting differently towards her. He doesn't treat her lovingly like he once did so she's trying to get to the bottom of the situation. I love how she is talking to him as if he's a stranger. Very nicely written.

    General CommentLOL!
    When I first heard the song as a child I was really scared... I thought it was actually a stranger, like an evil twin or so. :D

    Great song though!
