"Gentle Stranger" lyrics - CAPTAIN AND TENNILLE

"Gentle Stranger"

Gentle Stranger,
You came into my life when I was feeling sad
And I looked up that day to see your face
Shining in the sun, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

Your eyes were kind
And you spoke softly to me,
You were just passing through
Tomorrow you would be gone
But we shared conversation and wine
And talked of many things

And on that night,
I slept softly in your arms
And you kept me warm,
You kept me from harm
You gave me love, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

Yes, I knew you'd be leaving in the morning,
By the dawn, You'd be going on your way
But we can never know about tomorrow
And I know you made me beautiful,
Beautiful today

Gentle Stranger,
I'm now returned again to lonely days and nights
But now I can not feel the pain so much
For a memory of you
Comes and wraps itself around me in the dark
And in my dream, I sleep softly in your arms

And I am warm, I am safe from harm
I am loved

I am loved, I am loved
I am loved, I am loved
I am loved, I am loved
