Stranger

I’m tired of fighting

For no war can be won

There’s two sides in each battle

And both sides are outgunned

We can dance while we want to

We can dance away the nights

Calling three AM taxis drinking cheap bags of wine

And I’ll dance while I have you

But all dances do end

For a war, I can’t win

Is just ‘round the bend

But your love wasn’t easy

It surely weren’t free

I sold all that I had

Til there weren’t much of me

Now you’re gone and on the mend

But all good things must end

From a stranger to a lover

To a stranger again

My mind built those cities

All those castles and trains

All the roads with no signs

That rolled ‘mongst the plains

Where the silver line hiding

Comes out to stay

Where I’d love you my dear

And you’d love me the same

But your love wasn’t easy

It surely weren’t free

I sold all that I had

Til there weren’t much of me

Now you’re gone and on the mend

But all good things must end

From a stranger to a lover

To a stranger again
