The Lyrics

Hey!
Living life,
someone calls you on the phone.
Te-le-marketers
really make you mad.
You
pick it up,
ready to tell 'em where to go.
Hey!
Big surprise,
it's your long lost dad.

Like a dream,
but it's real.
And you're not sure how to feel.
You're surprised at what's revealed.
Strange but true.
Like a dream
gone astray.
These things happen everyday.
All the little games we play.
You know it's strange but true.
Strange but true!

Through,
through the air.
Statues fly into the walls.
Do,
do not break.
Don't break when they fall.
This
poltergeist,
caused by teenage emotions.
There's
nothing more,
nothing else at all.

Like a dream,
but it's real.
And you're not sure how to feel.
You're surprised at what's revealed.
Strange but true.
Like a dream
gone astray.
These things happen everyday.
All the little games we play.
You know it's strange but true.
Strange but true!

(Guitar Solo)

Like a dream.
But it's real.
You're surprised.
Like a dream.
But it's real.
Gone astray.
Strange but true.

Man
loses sight,
and replaced his cor-neas.
He
came out fine,
but his sight had changed.
Saw
some wierd things,
things that soon would happen.
They,
they were stopped,
lives were rearranged.

like a dream,
but it's real.
And you're not sure how to feel.
You're surprised at what's revealed.
Strange but true.
It's the truth,
not a lie.
Couldn't fake this if I tried.
Makes you open up your eyes.
It's wierd!

Strange but true!
