People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look when you'reWomen seem when you're unwanted
Streets arewhen you're
When you're strange
Faces of the rain
When you're
No one remembers your name
When you're strange

Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down
