The stranger

Billy Joel

Chords: Principal (acoustic and electric guitars)
tone: G
Well we all have a face 
        Am         Em 
That we hide away forever 
       Am                 C7 
And we take them out, and show ourselves 
     D                B7 
When everyone has gone 
Some are satin, some are steel 
         Am                Em 
Some are silk and some are leather 
            Am         D        Em7    Em 
They're the faces of a stranger but we love 
Bm7        Em 
To try them on 

Well we all fall in love 
       Am            Em 
But we disregard the danger 
          Am            C7                   
Though we share so many secrets, there are 
D                 B7 
Some we never tell 
Why were you so surprised 
         Am             Em 
That you never saw the stranger 
        Am             D             Em 
Did you ever let your lover see the stranger 
Bm   Em 
in yourself 
Bm        Bb+             Bm7 
Don't be afraid to try again 
D              Bm 
Everyone goes south 
Bb            Bm7    D 
Every now and then 
Bm              Bb+               Bm7 
You've done it, why can't someone else 
D                  Bm 
You should know by now, 
Bb+                    D     Bm 
You've been there yourself 
1st time:  Once I   used  to believe 
2nd time:  You will never understand 
        Am              Em 
I   was such a great romancer 
How the stranger is inspired 
        Am            C7 
Then I came home to a woman 
But  he   isn't always evil 
       D                  B7 
That I could not recognize 
And he is not always wrong 
When I pressed her for a reason 
Though you drown in good intentions 
     Am                Em 
She refused to give an answer 
You will never quench the fire 
       Am              D        Em7 
It was then I felt the stranger kick me 
You'll give into your desire when the 
Em       Bm7      Em 
Right between the eyes 
Stranger comes along
