Perfect Strangers Lyrics

by Anne Murray

Perfect strangers - both of us know the dangers
Sharing secrets - in each other-ers arms

Time is passing (I am all but frozen)
One chance is all we're asking (Put your arms around me)
Somehow, somewhere (Don't know why you've chosen)
Love will find a way (Someone like me)
Gently, slowly, let me, fall in love wi-ith you

Far across the ocean in the darkest night
I was sailing on the ship of fools
But looking in your eyes I see the harbour lights
Now I just want to stay with you

So take my hand, follow me
Understand what I need
And love me as if you've always loved me
'Till the mor-ornin' light - and it's alright
You're the perfect stranger tonight

My love, for you, fills my heart
The more you, hold me, gently
In your loving arms

Open hearted (I am just a shadow)
I love the love we've started (Shine your light upon me)
Sharing, dreaming (You're the only answer)
In this place and time (I've been waiting for)
Once in a lifetime, you find love, let it be tonight

Far across the ocean in the darkest night
I was sailing on the ship of fools
But looking in your eyes I see the harbour lights
Now I just want to stay with you

So take my hand, follow me
Understand what I need
And love me as if you've always loved me
'Till the mornin' light - and it's alright
You're the perfect stranger tonight
