An afternoon of sad affairs
Shared in the hope of mending broken dreams
The constant struggle after simple pleasures
Finds us perfect strangers you and I

You know I hate to see you cry
And through the tears that fall like winter rain
You say you're tired of merely just surviving
We've so much in common that we're

Chorus
Perfect strangers singing perfectly in tune
From seperate corners of the room
Held together by our hunger to get by
Perfect strangers you and I

Let's make a toast to no regrets
Wet down the painful sting of sweet love lost
Let evening find us whispering in our whiskey
Come and sit beside me for a while

You know I love to see you smile
And if perhaps you're only passing through
At least we tried to reach an understanding
And for just one moment we were

Perfect strangers singing perfectly in tune
From seperate corners of the room
Held together by our hunger to get by
Perfect strangers you and I

Music

Perfect strangers singing perfectly in tune
From seperate corners of the room
Held together by our hunger to get by
Perfect strangers you and I

    The only woman i ever loved came back into my life after 47 years,but only for a lunch or coffee date. She is my perfect stranger. That is my personal meaning.
