On a cold and windy morning
Said goodbye to my old friends 
They were hangin' around the corner 
They were stayin' till the end

On the other side of midnight, 
I was lookin' for a place to stay 
And one thing's sure for certain
I ain't never goin' back again

The streetlights looked so pretty 
As they spread into a town 
I was lookin' for another sundown 
And my head was spinning round and round

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger 
Lookin' through the eyes of danger 
Lookin' at the all-night dancer 
Never takin' all the chances

As I walked into the main street
Saw a crowd across the square 
And I heard a guitar playin' 
And I saw you standing there

Lookin' through the eyes of a stranger 
Lookin' through the eyes of danger 
Lookin' at the all-night dancer 
Never takin' all the chances

Distant bells they started ringing
Somewhere far off in the night 
And the place was full of loneliness 
That disappeared from sight
