Electric Light Orchestra - Stranger On A Quiet Street Lyrics




When all the thrills have been forgotten
The chill of night can call them home
And all the dreams that you left stranded
Will slowly start to come along

I felt it as she slipped away, slipped away
I didn't have the words to say
When I saw the stranger
A stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street

You can go straight as an arrow
You can go straight as you dare
Walkin' the old straight and narrow
Don't always get you there

The sun was shining when I saw it all
She was moving to a different beat
When I met a stranger
A stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street

It came to me out of the blue, out of the blue
There came the moment that I really knew
When I met a stranger
A stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street

Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street, on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street
Stranger on a quiet street

    There can be no doubt that Rosie Vela was a tremendous inspiration to Jeff Lynne and it's easy to see it as you watch them perform together in the 2001 Comeback Tour.She really loved him and boosted him with her charm and beauty.
