Strangers When We Meet
By 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
