Stranger lyrics


(Will Bloom)


I’m feeling stranger

Than I’ve ever felt before

And so much more


Like something old has joined

With something new

But still feels true

I’m passing through a rite that every parent does

I’m walking on some shared familiar ground

Yet every step I take

Is not a step that was

And I’ve found

I like the sound of


A child I’ve yet to meet

Becomes my everything

My song to sing


And suddenly the weight of it is real

What do I feel’

I feel connected

In a way I’ve never known

A line from dad to me to new-born son

So from today

I’ll never make a choice alone

One for all

All for one

And when he’s born

I’ll teach him how to use his common sense

He’ll listen and he’ll learn and he’ll excel

I’ll tell my son

That life is lived in clear and present tense

Not only in the stories we can tell

My father told me stories

I could never comprehend

In every tale he’d claim to be the hero

I’ve tried to understand him

But I wonder if I can

Because after almost thirty years

I still don’t know the man

I wish I knew the man

But he’s a stranger

My father is a stranger I know very well

A puzzling shell


What’s on its way may help us both to grow

But I don’t know

I don’t know when I’ll understand

What made him wild

I don’t know why he has the urge to fly

I want to face him like a man and not a child

So I’ll try

I’ll really try

And in time, my boy is sure to see

Brighter days for dad and me

We can do things better than before

So that strangers we will be no more
