No Such Thing as Strangers

(Pat Robinson, Brad Coleman)



Underneath the overpass, a river takes a life
A drifter comes from nowhere, when he hears a baby's cries
Rapids roll, out of control, as the baby slips away
A mother stands beside herself and prays

A sacrifice to save a life, is a thing you don't forget
A mother holds her child, thanks to a man she's never met
You know you've heard the calling, when you answer someone's prayers
Life is something everybody shares

CHORUS
Cause there's no such thing as strangers
Only friends who haven't met
We're in this thing together
Only we don't know it yet

The message "Love thy neighbor "
Is so easy to forget
There's no such thing as strangers
Only friends we haven't met

BRIDGE
And just as that old river, will one day join the sea
There also lies between us, a thread called harmony

Cause there's a little good in everyone, just waiting to come out
There are souls we've never met, that we don't know about
My daddy was that drowning child, in the winter of '53
He's the one who passed this lesson on to me

CHORUS

The message "Love thy neighbor "
Is so easy to forget
There's no such thing as strangers
Only friends we haven't met
