1. Stranger by Emily Rockarts

 

Hey stranger

What makes you think

That anybody cares

What you have to say to me

The things that you say to me

 

Hey  stranger

You just speak

before you think about

The words that you say to me

I don’t find them funny

 

And I’m scared to go out late at night

And I’m frightened of the dark

And you put this fear into my mind

Where nobody has the right

 

Walking through people

Looking down

Instead of into your eyes

Keep quiet, pass by

 

Hey  stranger

You just sit there soaking up

All of the beauty that you see

And you make it ugly

 

And I’m scared to go out late at night

And I’m frightened of the dark

And you put this fear into my mind

Where nobody has the right

 

And it’s not a joke I think you misspoke // You were a stranger to me

I won’t smile and you won’t pick me up// You were a stranger to me

And it’s not a joke I think you misspoke// You were a stranger to me

Tell me why you try to push me down // You were a stranger to me

And it’s not a joke take back what you spoke// You were a stranger to me

I won’t cry and you won’t push me down // You were a stranger to me

And I’m tired of feeling threatened out// You were a stranger to me
