Take my hand,
I'm a stranger in Paradise
All lost in a wonderland
A stranger in paradise
If I stand starry eyed,
That's a danger in Paradise
For mortals who stand beside
An angel like you

I saw her face,
And I ascended
Out of the common place
Into the rare
Somewhere in space
I hang suspended
Until I know
There's a chance that she cares

Won't you answer this fervent prayer?
Of a stranger in paradise
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for
But open your angel's arms
To the strangers in paradise
And tell us that we need be
Strangers no more

I saw her face,
And I ascended
Out of the common place
Into the rare
Somewhere in space
I hang suspended
Until I know
There's a chance that she cares

Won't you answer this fervent prayer?
Of a stranger in paradise
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for
But open your angel's arms
To the strangers in paradise
And tell us that we need be
Strangers no more
