Lyrics

You don’t talk like me
You don’t act like me
You don’t think like me
You do things differently
Some won’t let you be their friend
Make it tough for you to fit in
They only like what they know
They’re just blind
To a beautiful mind

You’re a stranger on the earth
Making your way
In an unfamiliar world
Feeling things differently
Living by your perspective
And your creativity
You’re a visionary man
Standing alone since birth
Thank God for the
Strangers on the earth

Newton was a man of high intellect
Einstein was a genius
Great music from masters
We respect
While unknown strangers
Breathe among us
Doing other than
What’s expected of them
They walk alone
They dare to be different
Some rise to glory
While others fall in shame
Let them shine
All the beautiful minds

You’re a stranger on the earth
Thinking your way
In an unfamiliar world
Seeing things differently
Living by your observations
And your originality
You’re a visionary man
Standing alone since birth
Thank God for the
Strangers on the earth

Always someone’s got
Something to say
Trying to persuade
Your thinking their way
Don’t they know
The harm they say
You can't confine
A beautiful, beautiful mind

You’re a stranger on the earth
Finding your way
In an unfamiliar world
Doing things differently
Living by your perceptions
And your individuality
You’re a visionary man
Standing alone since birth
Thank God for the
Strangers on the earth
