EmWell we all have a face
Am EmThat we hide away forever
Am C7And we take them out and show ourselves
D B7When everyone has gone
Em Some are satin some are steel
Am EmSome are silk and some are leather
Am DThey're the faces of the stranger
Bm Em C7 Em C7But we love to try them on
EmWell we all fall in love
Am EmBut we disregard the danger
Am C7Though we share so many secrets
D B7There are some we never tell
Em Why were you so surprised
Am EmThat you never saw the stranger
Am DDid you ever let your lover see
Bm EmThe stranger in yourself?
Bm* Bb#5 D*Don't be afraid to try again
D7 Bm* Bb D* D D7 Everyone goes south every now and then, oh oh
Bm* Bb#5 D*You've done it, why can't someone else?
D7 Bm* Bb#5 D BmYou should know by now you've been there yourself
EmOnce I used to believe
Am EmI was such a great romancer
Am C7Then I came home to a woman
D B7That I could not recognize
EmWhen I pressed her for a reason
Am EmShe refused to even answer
Am DIt was then I felt the stranger
Bm Em C7 Em C7Kick me right between the eyes
EmWell we all fall in love
Am EmBut we disregard the danger
Am C7Though we share so many secrets
D B7There are some we never tell
Em Why were you so surprised
Am EmThat you never saw the stranger
Am DDid you ever let your lover see
Bm EmThe stranger in yourself?
Bm* Bb#5 D*Don't be afraid to try again
D7 Bm* Bb D* D D7 Everyone goes south every now and then, oh oh
Bm* Bb#5 D*You've done it, why can't someone else?
D7 Bm* Bb#5 D BmYou should know by now you've been there yourself
EmYou may never understand
Am EmHow the stranger is inspired
Am C7But he isn't always evil
D B7And he is not always wrong
EmThough you drown in good intentions
Am EmYou will never quench the fire
Am DYou'll give in to your desire
Bm Em C7 Em C7 Em C7 EmWhen the stranger comes along
