Lyrics

HELLO STRANGER


hello stranger
in my mind's eye
pictures of you flicker

I haven't forgotten
what we used to share and love
and all our conversations lingering on

how could we ever fall this low
and not even feel shame or sorrow ?

hang on to your halo
before it's swept away

will I ever know
why darkness came to stay ?

goodbye stranger
I knew your cold blue eyes
would not surrender

the walls you've built are strong
and mine are paper-thin

we played it out to perfection
then you led me on

how could we ever fall this low
and not even feel shame or sorrow ?

hang on to your halo
before it's swept away

will I ever know
why darkness came to stay ?
