STRANGER

A/N: I'm not a Lizzie fan, but I think this song suites her.

Song: Stranger – Hillary Duff

Nobody believes me

When I tell them you're out of you're mind

Nobody believes me

When I tell them that there's so much you hide

"Nigel really actually hides so much."

Mary-Ann gapes at her best friend as if she just saw a ghost. "What do you mean, Lizzie? He's all for you." Lizzie shook her head thinking: "Only when you're around."

You treat me like a queen when we go out

Wanna show everyone what our love is about

All wrapped up in me whenever there's a crowd

But when there's no one around

"Did anyone see Nigel?" Lizzie asked (more like yelled over the music) her friends as she approached them. She was wearing a beautiful red dress.

"No."

"NIGEL UNO!"

There's no kindness in your eyes

The way you look at me, it's just not right

I can tell what's goin' on this time

There's a stranger in my live

"It's like he's a stranger." Lizzie thought out loud. "What?" Mary-Ann asked her friend.

"It's like he's a stranger." Lizzie said, louder this time. "I know he has this romantic air around him when he takes me out, but when we're alone…It's like I barely know him!"

You're not the person I once knew

Are you scared to let 'em know it's you

If they could only see you the way I do

Then they would see a stranger too

"Nigel, please, you promised."

Nigel looked at his girlfriend with a silent 'sorry' in his eyes. "I'm really sorry, Lizzie." And just like that he was gone.

Lizzie stared after him. "If only they could see the total stranger I see."

Did I ever do anything that was this cruel to you?

Did I ever make you wonder who was standing in this room?

"I wonder if it was me, and not him." Lizzie sat up on her bed. "Did I ever do something like what he's doing to me?"

You made yourself look prefect in every way

So when this goes down, I'll be the one blamed

Your plan is working so you can just walk away

Baby, your secret's safe

Nigel just so happened to be prefect. He was one of the more popular kids at their school. If this ever came out, Lizzie would be the one to blame.

There's no kindness in your eyes

The way you look at me, it's just not right

I can tell what's goin' on this time

There's a stranger in my live

"I feel like I never knew him."

"What?" Abby turned to face her leader's girlfriend. "You heard me right." Lizzie said. "He's…changed. The way he looks at me most of the time, it's just not right."

"Well, this is your problem, why tell Abby about it?" The dark skinned girl said. "It's just that…you're one of those who know him best." Lizzie said. "That doesn't sound like Nigel at all." Abby said.

Lizzie watched Abby leave with a sigh. Of course Nigel would win this round.

You're not the person I once knew

Are you scared to let 'em know it's you

If they could only see you the way I do

Then they would see a stranger too

Talking with Nigel about it wasn't an option. Lizzie knew that. The problem was that nobody saw the way trough his act. He was as cold as ice to her, and the cool kid to others.

Such a long way back

Form this place where we're at

When I think of all the time I've wasted

I could cry

Why does only she get to see this Nigel that nobody knew?

There's no kindness in your eyes

The way you look at me, it's just not right

I can tell what's goin' on this time

There's a stranger in my live

You're not the person I once knew

Are you scared to let 'em know it's you

If they could only see you the way I do

Then they would see a stranger too

There's no kindness in your eyes

The way you look at me, it's just not right

I can tell what's goin' on this time

There's a stranger in my live

You're not the person I once knew

Are you scared to let 'em know it's you

If they could only see you the way I do

Then they would see a stranger too
