The Stranger Song Lyrics

It's true that all the men you knew were dealers
who said they were through with dealing
Every time you gave them shelter
I know that kind of man
It's hard to hold the hand of anyone
who is reaching for the sky just to surrender
who is...

    A beautiful in search of song of LEONARD CHOEN, about a man that is going through mid life crisis and is willing to stop being the dealer that doesn't need to be in control anymore. Getting a little needy now and is looking for some ''shelter from the storm'' in a woman to rest his head on. But she also knows it's not easy to hold on to him who's afraid to surrender his feelings to her. When he's really ''reaching for the sky just to surrender'' to the Higher Power. Where the woman knows she's not the one for him, but is willing to tell him like she did to the many other jokers, with love of the Higher Power to ''sit down young stranger'' and tell me where you've been'', to tell him also that gave him comfort and love to where to go from here.
