Verse:        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

Verse(B):    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?

Chorus:       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

Verse:         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
	  That was then I felt the stranger 
	  Kick me right between the eyes
Verse B


Verse:        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
