The Stranger

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

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
ooh ooh

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
ooh hoo

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 is not
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

ooh ooh hoo
ooh ooh
