Strangers in the night exchanging glances

Wond`ring in the night what were the chances

We`d be sharing love before the night was through

Something in your eyes was so inviting

Something in you smile was so exciting

Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night

Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night

Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know

Love was just a glance away, warm embracing dance away


Ever since that night we`ve been together

Lovers at first sight, in love forever

It turned out so right for strangers in the night

Love was just a glance away, warm embracing dance away

Ever since that night we`ve been together

Lovers at first sight, in love forever

It turned out so right for strangers in the night
