Well we all have a face that we hide away forever
And we take them out, and show ourselves when everyone has gone[B+]
Some are satin, some are steel some are silk and some are leather
They're the faces of a 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[B+]
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 a[Gm maj7]fraid to try aga[D/F#]in
Everyone goes south[Gm maj7]Every now and [D/F#]then oohhoo
You've done it, [Gm maj7]why can't someone [D/F#]else
[D/C]You should know by now, [Bb+]You've been there yourself[B+]

Once I used to believe I was such a great romancer
Then I came home to a woman that I could not recognize[B+]
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[B+]
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 a[Gm maj7]fraid to try aga[D/F#]in
Everyone goes south[Gm maj7]Every now and [D/F#]then oohhoo
You've done it, [Gm maj7]why can't someone [D/F#]else
[D/C]You should know by now, [Bb+]You've been there yourself[B+]

You may never understand how the Stranger is inspired
But he isn't always evil and he is not always wrong[B+]
Though you drown in good intentions you will never quench the fire
Don't give into your desire when the Stranger comes along
