Strangered In The Night Lyrics

Well it was dark at midnight
There was hardly any moon
And no one really saw much
No one was really sure
But something didn't seem right
Something was kinda queer
A roar turned into whispers
Everyone stood there

As the sound split the ngiht
They ran hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Like strangers in the night

Well I didn't see no shotgun
I didn't see no knife
But I saw this crazy black guy
With the demon in his eye
And I heard him say "white man"
I've seen that silver cue
You don't remember me well
But I remember you

As the sound split the night
They ran hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Like strangers in the night

Well the knife just left his fingers
As the black guy took his aim
White guy's head exploded
The black gut howled in pain
Then everybody scattered
I heard some woman scream
God damn you old black bastard
You've blown away my dreams

As the sound split the night
They ran hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Like strangers in the night
