Strangers

  • I pressed my ear to your chest and heard something personal
    A whisper that knew my name
    Is this how your heart treats all strangers,
    With love and affection?
    Then I feel cold and empty

    I've got a sense of urgency
    I've gotta make this happen
    No stone unturned
    I've got a sense of urgency
    I've gotta make something happen
    No stone unturned

    I held your hand while you were sleeping
    The whole night you gripped to mine
    A grip that begged me to stay
    Is this how your limbs treat all strangers,
    With love and affection?
    Then I feel weak and empty

    I've got a sense of urgency
    I've gotta make this happen
    No stone unturned
    I've got a sense of urgency
    I've gotta make something happen
    No stone unturned

    Strangers don't hide
    The morning hunts you down
    But there's nothing stranger than to love someone

    I heard the water beat on your skin a shower of discipline
    As heavy as iron
    And I imagined the hand that gripped mine
    Now gripping the gaps in the tile
    Just holding on tight

    I've got a sense of urgency
    I've gotta make this happen
    No stone unturned
    I've got a sense of urgency
    I've gotta make something happen
    No stone unturned

    Strangers don't hide
    The morning hunts you down
    But there's nothing stranger than to love someone. Writer/s: HARRY MCVEIGH, CHARLES CAVE, JACK BROWN
