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 seemed kinda queer
The roar turned into whispers
Everyone stood there

When the sounds fit the night
Like it hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Strangers in the night

Well, I didn't see those shotguns
And I didn't see no knife
But I saw this crazy black guy
With a demon in his eyes

And I heard him say, "White man"
I've seen that silver cue
You don't remember me well
But I remember you

When the sounds fit the night
Like it hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Strangers in the night

Well, the knife just left his fingers
As the black guy took his aim
White guy's head exploded
My God, how he pained

And then everybody scattered
I heard some woman scream
"God damn you old black bastard
Well, you've blown away my dreams"

When the sound just fits the night
Like it hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night
Strangers in the night
Strangers in the night
Strangers in the night
