[Intro]
  C F C F

[Verse 1]
C
Stranger
    F
I'm feeling stranger
               C
Than I've ever felt before
    F
And so much more
C
Different
     F
Like something old has joined
               Cmaj7
With something new
            F
But still feels true
    Am7           Am       C      F   F6
I'm passing through a rite that every parent does
    Csus2        G         D4      F       Fsus2   C
I'm walking on some shared familiar ground
Csus2    Am
  Yet every step I take
Am7        F6             F
  Is not a step that was
F6         Bb2
  And I've found
           Bb2
I like the sound of

[Verse 2]
C
Stranger
  F
A child I've yet to meet
           Cmaj7
Becomes my everything
   F
My song to sing
C
Father
    F
And suddenly the weight of it is real
Cmaj7       F
  What do I feel?
  Am7     Am     C       Fsus2      F6
I feel connected in a way I've never known
  Csus2          G      D4      F    Fsus2    C
A line from Dad to me to new-born son
   Am
So from today
                  C4
I'll never make a choice alone
        Bb2
One for all
        Bb2
All for one

[Bridge]
    Am
And when he's born
     Fsus4               Fsus2       C
I'll teach him how to use his common sense
      Bb6                   F             Csus2   G
He'll listen and he'll learn and he'll excel
     Am
I'll tell my son
     F                Fsus2             C
That life is lived in clear and present tense
      Bb6          F      F6     Csus2    G
Not only in the stories we can tell
   D
My father told me stories
        F             F6
I could never comprehend
   D                                 F    F6
In every tale he'd claim to be the hero
     Bb            F
I've tried to understand him
      F#sus2         D#sus2
But I wonder if I can
        D#    C#     D#     C#
Because after almost thirty years
  Dm7                  Dsus4    Dm7
I still don't know the man
F                 Dm    Asus4
I wish I knew the man

[Verse 3]
Dm    G      C
  But he's a stranger
   F                           Cmaj7
My father is a stranger I know very well
  F
A puzzling shell
C
Hopeful
       F                               Cmaj7
What's on its way may help us both to grow
        Fsus2
But I don't know
  Am                   C         Fsus2 Dm7
I don't know when I'll understand what made him wild
  Csus2         G      Csus4        C
I don't know why he has the urge to fly
  Am                              F6
I want to face him like a man and not a child
        Bb2
So I'll try
            Bb2
I'll really try

[Outro]
       C               Csus2   G
And in time, my boy is sure to see
Dsus4            C#maj7
Brighter days for dad and me
Dm7              Am          C(b5)    Am
We can do things better than before
        Dm7  Fsus2  Dm7 Bdim   F   Dm   Am   F   Csus4   F   Fsus2
So that strangers   we  will   be
   C   G#6   F   Bb2   C
no more
