Dance, Stranger, Dance
(Christoph Endres)

It's been a while, maybe been years
But now is now, and now I'm here
There is no story, there's no song
I once was old but now I'm young.

There is no name for what I am
And you don't care, so call me Sam.
The night is young, the day is far
Alive at last - that's what we are.

Dance, stranger, dance
It's not too late, you might still get a chance
Run, stranger, run
You can't come back to where it begun
Dance, stranger, dance
It's not too late, you might still get a chance
dance, stranger, dance

We're getting drunk, that's just what it is
this is not sex, this is not even a kiss.
It's cruel for me to say that you
have no idea what I could do.

There is no end, it's just a road
I might break hearts, I'll leave no note
Young is the night, far is the day
Cause nights like this can never stay.

Dance, stranger, dance
It's not too late, you might still get a chance
Run, stranger, run
You can't come back to where it begun
Dance, stranger, dance
It's not too late, you might still get a chance
dance, stranger, dance

Remember what your brother said
you better leave, or you forget
the things you never will regret
oh no, you never will regret.

Be careful when the floor is wet
You never had a safety net
you know, you're never going back
oh no, you're never going back

It's been a while, even been years
The way things are I could not lose my fears
I know that I just treat you mean
It's not my fault, just how it's been.

There is no pain, I just feel cold.
And I don't care, maybe I'm old
My name is Sam, and dawn is far
It's not a dream, it's what we are.

Dance, stranger, dance
It's not too late, you might still get a chance
Run, stranger, run
You can't come back to where it begun
Dance, stranger, dance
It's not too late, you might still get a chance
dance, stranger, dance
