THE STRANGER
Melissa Ferrick


waiting wanting

to see you in my eyes

finding feelings

that I thought were buried inside



because I never though that I

could ever love like this

but you have

proven me wrong



you the stranger who took a chance

held me at a distance so I could see myself

so thank you for everything you gave without knowing

and thank you for letting me fall in love

without withholding

without withholding



so let me in now

I am ready to move

and here comes fear and resistance from you

and for once I am willing and now what i've got to wait?



these lessons are everywhere in my life

you know I never waited for anyone and I was always right

but ya now I give up I surrender

I would wait for you...forever



you the stranger who took a chance

held me at a distance so I could see myself

so thank you for everything you gave without knowing

and thank you for letting me fall in love with you

without withholding

without withholding



so come on and test me

go on and try it

because I know that I fit perfectly inside you

and to deny this love would be to deny your heart

and you're going be the one who breaks it

baby if you choose to walk



you the stranger who took a chance

held me at a distance so I could see myself

so thank you for everything you gave without knowing

and thank you for letting me fall in love

you the stranger who took a chance

held me at a distance so I could see myself

so thank you for everything you gave without knowing

and thank you for letting me fall in love

without withholding

without withholding

Ferrick began singing in coffeehouses after dropping out of college, eventually winding up in Boston. Her major breakthrough arrived one night when she replaced Morrissey's opening act less than an hour before showtime. Ferrick's performance impressed Morrissey and he invited her to open for him during the rest of the tour. ... Read More
