Perfect Stranger
©1978, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Some time ago when I was lonely
Before I came across you
Back then I always was mistreated
I didn’t know what to do

Where can I go in the big city
Alone in streets so dark and cold

And when the sun comes up and hits me
I get up and go home

Round here I’m called the Perfect Stranger
Just trying to get by
Round here I’m called the Perfect Stranger
Living for loving I cry

I look at you, you smile at me
I’ve seen that look before
You seem enchanted and you trust me
I laugh and close the door

And then you tell me that you love me
You say it out of the blue

Whatever made you want to tell me
It better not be true
Don’t try and guess my little secret
Until I lay it on you

I’m a Perfect Stranger
I’m the Perfect Stranger
