Kind Stranger

Words and Music: Koshka (Ekaterina Zvyozdosamtseva) (mka Maya Heath)
MIDI NWC

Won't you speak to me, stranger, for strangers we are not
We have journeyed together in lands we've both forgot.
But though time separates us, the kinship still remains.
Won't you take a moment, stranger to talk to me again?

I have seen you in the forest, sunlight on your face
Felt the love in your touching, time cannot erase
Heard the strength in your laughter, joy in your song,
Won't you tarry, kind stranger, before you hurry on?

When the long night of waiting is finally past,
And you see by your window the dawn has come at last
We will sit down together and share a pot of tea
For my heart's resting with you as yours is with me.

Now that we have spoken it's time for you to go.
We're both bound on a journey by roads we do not know.
But though time may come between us in ways we can't forsee
We will meet again, kind stranger, and share our company.

When the long night of waiting is finally past,
And you see by your mirror you've found the truth at last,
We will sit down together and share a tale or two,
For your heart it stays with me, as mine goes with you.
