The Stranger (Live) by Billy Joel

Well we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out
And show ourselves
When everyone has gone
Some are satin some are steel
Some are silk and some are leather
They're the faces of the stranger
But we love to try them on

Well we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we (1)__________ tell

When I (3)______________ her for a reason

Well we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we (5)__________ so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then

You've (6)________ it why can't someone else?
You (7)____________ know by now
You've been there yourself
You may (8)__________ understand
How the stranger is inspired
But he isn't always evil
And he is not always wrong
Though you drown in good intentions
You will never quench the fire
You'll give in to your desire
When the (9)________________ comes along
