STRANGER: by © Reuben Y. ODOI


Ooh Stranger what ‘re you going to do
When the authorities come for you?
Sad tears in your dream
While you thought all was fine with you
The world got you wrong, yeah
And the world got me wrong
So we step back our lives
To look through the past

Global economic crises time
Had affect social stability
When two million people go to bed
With a heavy hunger every night

Tell me why you ‘re still here
When they refuse to register
Your regulation’s right?
As a refugee, like a refugee

Ooh Stranger what ‘re you going to do
When the authorities come for you?
Ooh Stranger where ‘re you going to run
When they come for you?
Ooh Stranger what ‘re you going to say
When they come for you?

You said home sweet home
While you’re born in a frontier town
Sons of immigrants got the chances of making laws (Obama)
Daughters of nomads have the destiny of finding homes

Tell me why you ‘re still here
When they refuse to register
Your regulation’s right?
As a refugee, like a refugee

Receive the spirit of humble hearts
On the mountains of smooth stones
Stop deserting a green tree (repeat: green green tree)
In the valley of cliff rocks (repeat: cliff rocks)
Setting behind is your symbol (ooh ooh)
For the merciless struggle of the wilderness

Ooh Stranger where ‘re you going to run
When they come for you?
Ooh Stranger where ‘re you going to hide
When they come for you?
Ooh Stranger what ‘re you going to do
When the authorities come for you?
Ooh Stranger what ‘re you going to do
When they come for you?
Ooh Stranger what ‘re you going to do
When they come for you?
