​Stranger on a Quiet Street

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Zoom (2001).

When all the thrills have been forgotten
The chill of night can call them home
And all the dreams that you left stranded
Will slowly start to come along.

I felt it as she slipped away (slipped away)
I didn't have the words to say
When I saw the stranger
A stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street.

You can go straight as an arrow
You can go straight as you dare
Walkin' the old straight and narrow
Don't always get you there.

The sun was shining when I saw it all (saw it all)
She was moving to a different beat
When I met a stranger
A stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street.

It came to me out of the blue (out of the blue)
There came the moment that I really knew
When I met a stranger
A stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street.

Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street, on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street...
