This Stranger (my Little Girl) Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Today for her has only been thirteen years of livin'
And for me it's been a wonderful thirteen years of givin'
She grows taller every day and farther from my world
God help me reach this stranger, my little girl

Music, I can't understand replaced her nursery rhymes
No longer can I even guess what's running through her mind
Her long straight hair has forgotten ribbons and soft curls
God, please protect this stranger, my little girl

Can she hear the worried sound in her mom's conversation
Can she see the anguish in my look of desperation
Can she feel my love for her pulling against her world
I love her so this stranger, my little girl

Has she so soon forgotten how close we used to be
And how when something troubled her, she'd always run to me
But mom can't solve her problems, she keeps locked inside her world
God, help me reach this stranger, my little girl

Can she hear the worried sound in her mom's conversation
Can she see the anguish in my look of desperation
Can she feel my love for her pulling against her world
I love her so this stranger, my little girl
