Stranger
On a cold and windy morning, said goodbye to my old friends
They were hangin' around the corner,
They were stayin' till the end - till the end.

On the other side of midnight, I was lookin' for a place to stay
And one thing's sure for certain,
I ain't never goin' back again, no, no.

(The stranger...)

The streetlights looked so pretty as they spread into a town
I was lookin' for another sundown
And my head was spinning round and round - going around.

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
(I'm looking through the air)
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
(I'm looking through the air)
Never takin' all the chances
(I was stranger).

As I walked into the main street, saw a crowd across the square
And I heard a guitar playin'
And I saw you standing there - standing there.

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
(I'm looking through the air)
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
(I'm looking through the air)
Never takin' all the chances
(I was stranger).

Distant bells, they started groovin' somewhere far off in the night
And the place was full of loneliness
That disappeared from sight.

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
(I'm looking through the air)
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
(I'm looking through the air)
Never takin' all the chances
(I was stranger).
Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger...

I ain't never goin' back
Never goin' back
Never goin' back
Never goin' back
Never goin' back
Never goin' back
Never goin' back
Never goin' back...
