Electric Light Orchestra Stranger Lyrics

sponsored links
On a cold and windy morning
Said goodbye to my old friends
They were hangin' around the corner
They were stayin' till the end

On the other side of midnight,
I was lookin' for a place to stay
And one thing's sure for certain
I ain't never goin' back again

The streetlights looked so pretty
As they spread into a town
I was lookin' for another sundown
And my head was spinning round and round

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
Never takin' all the chances

As I walked into the main street
Saw a crowd across the square
And I heard a guitar playin'
And I saw you standing there

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger
Lookin' through the eyes of danger
Lookin' at the all-night dancer
Never takin' all the chances

Distant bells they started ringing
Somewhere far off in the night
And the place was full of loneliness
That disappeared from sight
