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 the danger in paradise For mortals who stand beside an angel like you I saw your face and I ascended Out of the commonplace into the rare Somewhere in space I hang suspended Until I know there's a chance that you care Won't you answer this fervent prayer Of a stranger in paradise? Don't send me in dark despair From all that I hunger for But open your angel's arms To this stranger in paradise And tell him that he need be A stranger no more ************** STRANGER IN PARADISE (Ann Blyth & Vic Damone) from "Kismet" 1955 film Ann Blyth & Vic Damone w Percy Faith's Orchestra & Chorus (film soundtrack) Oh why do the leaves of that mulberry tree Whisper differently now? And why is the nightingale singing at noon On a mulberry bough? For some most mysterious reason, This isn't the garden I know; No, it's paradise now that was only a garden A moment ago! 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 commonplace, into the rare. Somewhere in space I hang suspended, Until I know there's a chance that you care. Won't you answer the fervent prayer Of a stranger in paradise? Don't send me in dark despair From all that I hunger for; But open your angel's arms To the stranger in paradise, And tell him that he need be A stranger no more. I saw your face and I ascended Out of the commonplace, into the rare. Somewhere in space I hang suspended, Until I know (till the moment I know) There's a chance that you care. (there's a chance that you care) Won't you answer the fervent prayer Of a stranger in paradise? Don't send me in dark despair From all that I hunger for; But open your angel's arms To the stranger in paradise, And tell me that I need be A stranger no more.
