Take my hand
I'm a stranger in paradise
All lost in a wonderland
A stranger in paradise
If I stand starry-eyed
That's the danger in paradise
For mortals who stand beside an angel like you

I saw your face and I ascended
Out of the commonplace into the rare
Somewhere in space I hang suspended
Until I know there's a chance that you care

Won't you answer this fervent prayer
Of a stranger in paradise?
Don't send me in dark despair
>From all that I hunger for

But open your angel's arms
To this stranger in paradise
And tell him that he need be
A stranger no more

ESCUCHÉ ÉSTA CANCION HACE 55 AÑOS, POR TONY BENNETT, BUT I THINK IS BETTER PERFORM BY J. MATHIS. THANK YOU.

La interpretación es magnífica...pero la letra es magistral, salida del alma de un hombre enamorado. Sin duda!

La version de Johny Mathis es muy buena pero la de Tony Bennett es anterior, hay una pelicula del mismo nombre que vi cuando chiquita y era realmente linda con esa cancion de tema musical ;)
