Strangers When We Meet - David Bowie

All our friends now seem
so thin and frail
Slinky secrets, hotter
than the sun.
No peachy prayers,
no trendy rechauffe
I'm with you so I can't go on
All my violence raining
tears upon the sheets
I'm bewildered for we're
strangers when we meet.

Blank screen TV preening
ourselves in snow
Forget my name, but I'm over you.
Blended sunrise,
and it's a dying world
Humming rheingold,
we scavenge up our clothes.

All my violence raining
tears upon the sheets
I'm resentful for we're
strangers when we meet.

Cold tired fingers tapping
out your memories
Halfway sadness,
dazzled by the new.

Your embrace was all
that I feared
That whirling room,
we trade by vendu

Steely resolve is
falling from me
My poor soul all
bruised passivity
All your regrets ride
rough-shod over me
I'm so glad that we're
strangers when we meet

I'm so thankful that we're
strangers when we meet.
I'm in clover for we're
strangers when we meet.
Heel head over that we're
strangers when we meet.

Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
Strangers when we meet.
