Composed & arranged by Anthony Jones, inspired by
”A Good Thing" by Monica Richards (InfraWarrior 2006)
Lyrics by Monica Richards

lyrics

There's something strange about you
But that's a good thing
What they don't know about you
I can see
And when no one is around
I know you're magic
You speak to animals
And they understand
I I was you
I was there
It feels like lifetimes ago
When there was music in my head that no one else could hear

There's something strange about you
But that's a good thing
What they don't know about you
Is their loss
And when they laugh at you
Make you feel worthless in your own skin
They don't know you're going to do some amazing things
You are me
You are here
It feels like ages from now
When your strangeness turns to strength
And it all becomes so clear

Everyone is lost until their heart is found
Everyone feels weak
Everyone breaks down
Everyone needs love and a place to call their own
Everyone is tired
Everyone feels totally alone

They say we're the Strange Ones but we are the lucky ones
We grew up stronger
We grew up knowing what the others take their lifetimes to understand
There's nothing strange about us at all
