lyrics

Friends out of Strangers

I don't know your name
but I've seen your face before
I don't share your language
yet we walk through the same door
we stand beside each other drinking memories
we nod in recognition then we look away
there are secrets there are stories
there is black and white and grey
And only people that you love can bring you to your knees

Making friends out of strangers
downstairs from my little room
where I sleep with my clothes on
just to keep warm
I stare at the world
through the prism of this fading light
water falling from the sky
like the tears I refuse to cry
now it’s over

I bought a ticket for the train underneath a cold grey sky
I'm flying through this land til l remember who I am
as the ground beneath my feet refuses to stand still
I'm guilty of desire to be what I have never been
I'm hungry for this world, I cannot get my fill.
breathing life into the heart of this broken hopeful time

Making friends out of strangers
downstairs from my little room
where I sleep with my clothes on
just to keep warm
I stare at the world
through the prism of this fading light
water falling from the sky
like the tears I refuse to cry
now it’s over

I've got a record I can't play
and a pair of dirty jeans
a toothbrush and 2 shirts
that’s all I need
