1995 re-recording

Sometimes I feel I lost something
In gaining everything
But I can't put my finger on what it was
It's just one of those nagging feelings
Like sitting with your back to an open door
Waiting on a favourite stranger
A favourite stranger

I find it hard to talk about
It's not as easy as you might expect
Just sitting here waiting
Trying to accept
That there's something missing
That there's something not quite there
And that's why you're sitting here
Listening to me as I try to explain

You're my favourite stranger
But don't read between the lines
I could say that I love you
At this moment in passing time
I could honestly tell you
I don't know why I'm here
Sharing all my problems with you
When you've already got your own share
From your favourite stranger
Favourite stranger

You're my favourite stranger
But don't read between the lines
I could say that I love you
At this moment in passing time
I could honestly tell you
I don't know why I'm here
Sharing all my problems with you
When you've already got your own share
From your favourite stranger
Favourite stranger

Sometimes I know I lost everything
In gaining something
But I can't put my finger on what it was
It's just a nagging feeling
Like sitting with your back to an open door
Expecting favourite stranger
Favourite stranger
Favourite stranger
You are
You're my favourite stranger
Just a favourite stranger
Favourite stranger
A stranger
One of my favourite strangers
