​Perfect Stranger

This song is by Patti Rothberg and appears on the album Between the 1 and the 9 (1996).

The first time you appeared there as a shadow on the wall
The second time I barely even saw you there at all
And all the dreams and fantasies that put you to the test -
I take the faintest outline, and my mind fills in the rest

Will I need you like a brand new morning sun?
Or will I grow to hate you like all the other ones?
But what I think you are is all I see
And as long as you're a stranger
As long as you're a stranger you'll stay perfect to me

Every night a lonely fight for something to be clear
I turn the page of dreary days and that's where you appear
So I build you up in little clay constructions in my head
And I like what I see

Will I need you like a brand new morning sun?
Or will I grow to hate you like all the other ones?
But what I think you are is all I see
And as long as you're a stranger
As long as you're a stranger you'll stay perfect to me

I used to seek within the crowd a place for me to hide
Or look in every eye and try to find myself inside
But in all this confusion I have finally seen the light
I'll never know a person like the you I know tonight

Will I need you like a brand new morning sun?
Or will I grow to hate you like all the other ones?
But what I think you are is all I see
And as long as you're a stranger
As long as you're a stranger you'll stay perfect to me
