Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Strangers When We Meet  David Bowie

[A]All my friends

Now seem so thin and frail
Slinky secr[E]ets
Hotter than the [D/F#]sun
No peachy prayers  [A]

No trendy rechauffe
I'm with you    [E]
So I can't go on    [D/F#]

All my violence [E]
Raining tea[D]rs upon the sheet    [A]
I'm bewilder[E]ed/resentful
For we're strang[D]ers when we meet        [A]

Blank screen TV [A]

Preening ourselves in the snow
Forget my name  [E]
But I'm over you   [D/F#]
Blended [A]sunrise

And it's a dying world
Humming Rheingold      [E]
We scavenge up our clothes  [D/F#]
Cold tired fi[E]ngers    [D/F#]
D(no third)
Tapping out your memories
Halfway sadne[E]ss   [D/F#]
D(no third)
Dazzled by the new
Your embrace     [A]

Was all that I feared
That whirling [E]room
We trade by ven[D/F#]du

Steely resolv[E]e
Is fallin[D]g from [A]me
My poor soul[E]
All brui[D]sed passivity    [A]
All your regrets[E]
Ride ro[D]ugh-shod over [A]me
I'm so [E]glad
That we're s[D]trangers when we [A]meet
I'm so t[E]hankful
That we're s[D]trangers when we [A]meet
I'm in c[E]lover
That we're stran[D]gers when we meet   [A]
Heel head o[E]ver
And we're str[D]angers when we [A]meet
