Oh, strangers.


He gets this feeling.
It's there within, each time he wakes.
This empty feeling.
Before too long, he'll start to shake.


You see him after midnight
On the city streets.
He turns away
To hide his eyes from those he meets.


Strangers in the darkness.
You see them everywhere.


She's just a young girl.
She's left her home for better times.
She's made the wrong friends.
She's turning to a life of crime.


She sells her fading beauty
To the passers by.
She tries to hide
That faroff look.
It's in her eyes.


Strangers in the darkness.
You see them everywhere.
So many strangers in the darkness.
Why is it no one seems to care?


Ooh, strangers in the darkness.
Strangers in the darkness.


They found him after midnight
On a city street.
A young man with a problem
That he couldn't beat.


Strangers in the darkness.
You see them everywhere.
So many strangers in the darkness.
Why is it no one seems to care?
