lyrics

there are forty pairs of shoes in the front door, I’m having trouble finding my left
she finds it in the corner, I say, ‘thanks’ she says, ‘don’t mention it’
we slip out onto the front porch, it’s another Friday night
she’s got the cigarettes and I’ve got the light
and our feet are hanging over the edge as we watch people come and go
some are friends and friends of friends and friends of those we know
and some are strangers to us now but none more strange than me
the look in their eyes reminds me of the man I used to be

strangers become new lovers
new lovers become old
and old lovers become strange

the living room is crowded and the music is too loud
I can’t hear the words that slip her tongue and fall gently to the ground
the n3k trio is banging out bangers for the kids
deans on bass, ross on keys and Connor’s stoned on the kit
big bens in the basement and he’s dealing with a broken heart
I say, ‘benjamin whats wrong my friend’ he says, ‘tell me where to start
she just does not love me in quite the same way that I love her
I suppose that’s just how it goes, ain’t it funny how love works

strangers become new lovers
new lovers become old
and old lovers become strange

clara’s blackout wasted, she passed out in the bathroom sink
you never know just where you’ll end up after one too many drinks
Jasper’s in the corner, he’s sipping on a bottle of wine
it doesn’t happen so often but we all gotta let a little loose sometimes
and I feel her standing next to me and whisper into her ear
‘what do you say, we steal away, I think it’s time to get out of here’
she says, ‘let me get my coat and say goodbye to a few friends
I can see and I’m sure you’d agree that this thing may never end’

strangers become new lovers
new lovers become old
and old lovers become strange
