"Strangers" as written by and David Gates....
See the couple walking by
You can tell they've lost the twinkle in their eye
There's no smiling when they laugh and there's no tears when they cry

Now the magic is all gone
It makes you wonder what their lives are living on
They can hardly even make it through 'till dawn

Strangers! Strangers! Strangers in the night!
Hoping ev'rything will turn out right
There's danger! Danger in the night!
You've got to move in closer to the light.

See the father and his son
From a distance don't it seem they're having fun
But just a little closer look reveals that they're having none

Neither tries to understand
Both ashamed to give or get a helping hand
And so concerned the other thinks that he's a man

Strangers! Strangers! Strangers in the night!
They're hoping ev'rything will turn out right
There's danger! Danger in the night!
You've got to move in closer to the light
Oh please help all the strangers in the night.

Though the answer may seem clear
It's still a ways to go to get from there to here
Just remember we're all strangers now to someone who's near

Choose your words they're all like keys
That open doors that stand between the you's and me's
Today is not too late to start so if you please

Strangers! Strangers! Strangers in the night!
Hopin' ev'rything will turn out right
They're strangers! Strangers to the light!
Ya got to move in closer to the light
Oh please help all the strangers in the night.
