Lyrics

THE ARMS OF A STRANGER

Written By: Shannon Pelletier Swanson

The day we met
You took me by surprise
In just one glance, you saw my soul
Through those misty blue-grey eyes.

When you took my hand
And said goodbye
There was something about you
That I just could not deny

CHORUS:
How do you explain, feeling safe,
In the arms of a stranger?
Why do I feel the way I do
Why do I love the danger?

Have we met somewhere before?
Because it’s so unreal
Each time I see your face,
To feel the way I feel

Then one day, you pulled me close
One gentle kiss, you were not afraid
You held me close, a stranger
And in your arms I stayed.

THEY SAY

Written By: Shannon Pelletier Swanson

She’s unapproachable, they say
So they stay away
She’ll turn you down, they say
So nobody asks her for a date

She’s fragile, nobody wants to touch her
Afraid she’ll break or shatter
She thinks,
She just doesn’t matter

CHORUS:
She wants to feel the strength
Of arms that are not afraid
To pull her close and show her passion
To tell her it’s okay.

She just wants to be to be wanted
She believes that she is strong,
She thinks she’s unbreakable
She knows what they are wrong.

She the marrying kind, they’ve always said
The one you keep forever
Build a life with her, they say
She’s the one you let go of never

CHORUS:
But she wants to feel the strength
Of arms that are not afraid
To pull her close and show her passion
To tell her it’s okay.

She wants to feel that heat
Of a heart that are on fire.
She yearns to be the one
The object of a stranger’s desire.

WITH YOU

Written By: Shannon Pelletier Swanson

I changed my mind,
If the offer still stands,
I’ll take you up on that ride.
Just give me a minute,
To run in and say goodbye.

Don’t tell me where you’re going
Tell me a little about where you’ve been
Just keep on driving
‘Til we can be alone again

Will you take me to that place?
Where the world seems faraway?
Just take my hand and lead me
With you I’m not afraid

CHORUS:
You’re the stranger from my dreams
I find my lips are kissing
You’re the one it always it always seems
Whose arms that I am missing

With you, I find it hard to breathe
You take my breath away
In just one glance you saw my soul
With you, I want to stay

Your eyes tell me
All I need to know
That’s why since we met
I just can’t seem to let go

CHORUS:
You’re the stranger from my dreams
I find my lips are kissing
You’re the one it always it always seems
Whose arms that I am missing
