Don’t Treat Me Like A Stranger

#1

“No”, she says
The sky is not crying…
“No”, he says
The sky is blue…

I remember
Saying that to a friend of mine
Him saying, “yes baby, the sky is blue”
And me saying
“You don’t understand at all what I mean”
The sky is raining…raining…raining
He who needed me…
So much
For so very….long

Don’t treat me like a stranger
That sounds like a song, she says
And I never put you in any danger
And I know you’ve known that
All along
Well, he said “I could come right through your door…any night”
And I don’t ever want to know about
New people in your life
And, let me make one thing
In all your dreams real clear
Now let’s talk about faith

Well, he called me as I walked through the door
And ran down his long hallway
And I turned around for more
No, there is not as much laughter
As there used to be
Things have changed
Not to speak of you and me

Don’t treat me like a stranger
That sounds like a song, she says
And I never put you in that danger
And you’ve known that all along

No, the sky is not crying
Oh yes, the sky was crying
So were you
So were you…

Well, he called me…
As I walked through the door, and I
Ran down his hallway, and I
Turned around for more
I said
No, there is not as much laughter here as there used to be
Things have changed
Not to speak of you and me
That was yesterday
Not to speak of you and me

Now let’s talk about faith…
Now let’s talk about faith
No, he doesn’t understand
And he never will
Well, don’t treat me like a stranger
No, don’t treat me like a stranger
Don’t treat me like a stranger
That sounds like a song
Don’t treat me like a stranger
Don’t treat me like a stranger
Don’t treat me like a stranger
Don’t treat me like a stranger

“No”, she says
The sky is not crying
Ooh..
He says the sky is blue
I remember
Saying that to a friend, and him saying
“Yes, well, the sky was blue’
And she says
“You don’t understand at all”
Well, the sky is raining
And he does not understand at all
He who needed me so much
For so very short of a time
And we both pretend that it never happened
We are…
I am…a good actress

Don’t treat me like a stranger
That sounds like a song, she says
And I would never
Never put you in that danger
And you know that
All along

He says
Well, I could come crashing through your door…any night
And I never want to hear about the
New people in your life
And let me make one thing perfectly clear
In your dreams
And now let’ talk…about faith…

Well, he called me as I walked on through the door…
Ran down his long hallway
And I turned around for more
No, there is not as much laughter as there was before
Things have changed
You have changed
Nothing ever changes
That was yesterday
Nothing ever changes
That was yesterday

No, the sky…the sky is not crying
Oh, the sky….it’s not crying
He said, well, the sky is blue…
I remember saying that to a friend
And him saying
You are crying, baby
It’s you

Don’t treat me like a stranger
That sounds like a song, she says
And I never put you in any danger
And you’ve known that from the first

And he called to me
As I walked on through the door
Ran down the long, long, long hallway
And I turned around for more
I said
No, there is not as much laughter
As there used to be
Not to mention
You and me
Whoa, no…no, baby
The sky is crying
Oh…yes
The sky is crying
Don’t treat me
Like a stranger

And now let’s talk about faith
And now let’s talk about faith

Let me make one thing perfectly clear
I don’t want to ever hear about the new people in your life

Don’t treat me like a stranger
And now let’s talk about faith, baby
Don’t treat me like a stranger
He who needed my so much
Don’t treat me like a stranger
He who cheated me
Just like a stranger…
Now let’s talk about….faith
