THE STRANGER

Well we all have a face

That we hide away forever

And we take them out and show ourselves

When everyone has gone


Some are satin some are steel

Some are silk and some are leather

They're the faces of the stranger

But we love to try them on


Well we all fall in love

But we disregard the danger

Though we share so many secrets

There are some we never tell


Why were you so surprised

That you never saw the stranger

Did you ever let your lover see

The stranger in yourself?


Don't be afraid to try again

Everyone goes south

Every now and then


You've done it, why can't someone else?

You should know by now

You've been there yourself


Once I used to believe

I was such a great romancer

Then I came home to a woman

That I could not recognize


When I pressed her for a reason

She refused to even answer

It was then I felt the stranger

Kick me right between the eyes


Well we all fall in love

But we disregard the danger

Though we share so many secrets

There are some we never tell


Why were you so surprised

That you never saw the stranger

Did you ever let your lover see

The stranger in yourself?


Don't be afraid to try again

Everyone goes south

Every now and then


You've done it, why can't someone else?

You should know by now

You've been there yourself


You may never understand

How the stranger is inspired

But he isn't always evil

And he isn't always wrong


Though you drown in good intentions

You will never quench the fire

You'll give in to your desire

When the stranger comes along
