So I’m gonna meet with him tomorrow
Well, I hope that I am not diving in too soon
Still I gotta find some love to borrow
just for the night, and that will be enough for me yeah
oh just for the night

And now I’m waiting at the bar
He introduces himself to me
He tells me I look beautiful
and he asks me what I drink

Sit down, in the corner
I’m trying to think of what to say
and I wish I could tell him
what the hell I’m doing here anyway
Meeting with a stranger
In a strange place

I’m not looking for love
coz loving is much too much for me
You see, I’ve got a lot going on right now
and I don’t need anyone to mess it up for me
And I say, right away to him that
“I like to sleep alone”
and he laughs with a drink in his hand
and he says “baby it’s all good, it's all good"

Take a walk outside
it’s kind of late and its kind of nice
We talk about how our friends are all settling down
He really don't know that much about me
and I really don’t know if there is much to him but
He puts his arms arounds me
and I I give myself to him
To a stranger
in a strange place
