Eyes of a Stranger

open up and let me in
looks like I fell again
thought I had it right this time

just feel that cold wind blow
set a chill right through my bones
think I'll head on down the line

now turn that page and then
I'm losing my head again
over something I thought I'd find

chorus:

in the eyes of a stranger
build me up just to watch me fall
destiny is just some fable
designed to catch you when you
fall from those graces,
those delicate places
baby, give me a call

so it's so, so long for good
just like you said I would
when I went stepping around the back

it ain't hard to move this slow
when you got nowhere to go
and no one keeping track

chorus:

but the eyes of some stranger
stand by haunting every fall
destiny is just some fable
designed to catch you when you
fall from those graces,
those delicate places
baby, give me a call
