Stranger in Paradise

This song is by Saint Etienne and appears on the compilation Ruby Trax (1992).

Take my hand, / I'm a stranger in paradise.
All lost in a wonderland, / a stranger in paradise.
If I stand starry-eyed / that's a danger in paradise
For mortals who stand / beside an angel like you.


I saw your face / and I ascended,
Out of the common place / into the rare.
Somewhere in space / I hang suspended
Until I know / there's a chance that you care.


Oh, won't you answer this loving prayer
Of a stranger in paradise?
Don't send me in dark despair / for all that I hunger for.
But open your angel arms / to the stranger in paradise,
And tell him that he need be / a stranger no more.


Take my hand, / I'm a stranger in paradise.
All lost in a wonderland, / a stranger in paradise.
If I stand starry-eyed / that's a danger in paradise
For mortals who stand / beside an angel like you.


Touch me, / I'm a stranger in paradise.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la.
Touch me, / I'm a stranger in paradise.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la.
Touch me, / I'm sick.
