Stranger in the Staircase

32 steps
From my floor to yours
That I’d climb each day
Just to stand by your door

I’ve heard you crying
And I know its cause of him
I’ve wanted to knock
Time and time again

I’m the stranger in the staircase
You pass each day
Stranger in the staircase
That smiles and walks on by
Just take my hand
I’ll be your man
I’m the stranger in the staircase

I never use the elevator
It just wouldn’t be fair
‘Cause when I see your face
My thoughts erase

I want you to see me
And let me in
We’ll talk for hours
And I’ll be your friend
I’m the stranger in the staircase
You pass each day
Stranger in the staircase
That smiles and walks on by
Just take my hand
I’ll be your man
I’m the stranger in the staircase
(Guitar solo)

I’m the stranger in the staircase
You pass each day
Stranger in the staircase
That smiles and walks on by
Just take my hand
I’ll be your man
I’m the stranger in the staircase
