stranger lyrics – noah and the whale

“stranger”

last night i slept with a stranger
for the first time, since you’ve gone
regretfully lying naked, i reflect on what i’ve done
her leg still forced inbetween mine, sticking to my skin
stroking my chest and my hair, head resting below my chin
i’m a fox trapped in the headlights
and i’m waiting, for the tyres to spin over me

cos everything i love has gone away
oh, cos everything i love has gone away

oh the dark night is moving slower, and sleep wont rescue me
leaving me here to suffer, this shameful misery
so i long for a taste of freedom, or at least freedom from this bed
silently picking up my clothes, i turn on my heels and i fled
and the dark of the street is no solace to me
oh and i don’t believe my conscience, will ever be clear again

cos everything i love has gone away
oh, cos everything i love has gone away

you know in a year, it’s gonna be better
you know in a year, i’m gonna be happy
