歌詞

The Stranger (陌生人) - Billy Joel (比利·喬)

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

 

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 recognise

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

 

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 isn't 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
