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 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 you care.

Won't you answer the fervent prayer
Of a stranger in paradise?
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for,
But open your angel arms
To this stranger in paradise
And tell him that he need be
A stranger no more.
