about

'Stranger' evokes a longing sigh from a dry desert breeze somewhere in way west Texas.

lyrics

I've got a crush on a Stranger
he lit my cigarettes all night
yeah I know I said I'd try to quit
but at least now because of it
man, something could go right

I've got a crush on a Stranger
I've never seen nobody hold the light
like like he did
like he did right on his fingertips
like he was some big part of it
just breathed it into life
like he stole it from the night

And I never thought Id feel warm again
I figured my chest was pure ice
and I never thought I'd give a shit again
oh no after all I've been broken down
I finally feel alive.

I fell in love with a Stranger
but I went home alone again last night
see there's a man who cares about me
and just couldn't do without me
even though I'll never be his wife

So I write songs now to Strangers
I sing about what could have--no--
what might might might have been
if I hadn't promised this one man
to hold him with my broken hands
and see him through his night
if my timing could ever be right

oh I, I would learn to feel warm again
I'd let this poor chest melt her ice
and I, I would so give a shit again
oh no after all I been broken down
I would finally try try try

oh I, I would learn to feel warm again
I'd let this poor chest melt her ice
and I, I would so give a shit again
oh no after all I been broken down
I would finally try try try
