Lyrics

Stranger In The Dark

I wondered for so long why even great love dies
Someone new can come along and bring joy to an empty life
Whispering dreams, in the middle of the night
A notion so surreal, even when it feels so right

Now - desperation in my voice, I am breaking
No sound in there at all noone can hear me
How could I have known the stillness in your heart
I wanted so much more and you thought everything was fine

Now I see it was wrong
But you know IÂ?m not that strong

Maybe if I set you free
YouÂ?d miss my love and come back to me
Then I wouldnÂ?t need to be the one
To find love with a stranger in the dark

I loved you more than anything now IÂ?m so lost
I believed in every word you said how could I not
I should have known weÂ?d be down this road again
And IÂ?d be all alone and wounded in the end

Now I see I was wrong
I should have never gone along

I believed you wanted me
And you pulled away so easily
Now IÂ?m losing ground, here where I am
God knows I canÂ?t understand

Maybe if I set you free
YouÂ?d miss my love and come back to me
Then I wouldnÂ?t need to be the one
To accept the love of my stranger in the dark
stranger in the darkÂ?.

In my mind I see you, I want you, I need you
And my heart just hopes you feel the same

In my mind I see you, I know you, I feel you
YouÂ?re more than just my stranger in the dark
stranger in the darkÂ?.
