Stranger in Paradise

The Four Aces
Música y Letra: Robert Wright y George Forrest


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 the danger in paradise
for mortals who stand beside
an angel like you.

I saw your face and I ascended
out of the commonplace into the rare.
Somewhere in space I hang suspended
until I know there's a chance that you care.

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 this stranger in paradise
and tell him that he need be
a stranger no more.

Take my hand.
