ALL WE ARE ARE "STRANGERS"

Dating new people is weird, uncomfortable, and... exciting

Song 2: Strangers
 

You haven't quit the journey and gone back home yet huh? I love it. Speaking of love, the second stop on our journey is one of romance. Gulp...

As I said in the "Goodbye" explanation, before I left home, I broke up with my girlfriend of 8 years. That's a long time. The idea of going on a date with a different girl was very weird and... exciting! When I got to the new city of Columbus Ohio, I jumped on the good ole dating apps and quickly found myself having drinks with a girl I hadn't known for more than a day. It was obvious both people felt like lost souls who were guarded, but at the same time were intrigued by the situation. We both understood the dangers of jumping back into "love" with someone we didn't know at all, but we did it anyways. Right or wrong, I felt so alive for the first time in a long time.

"We both know that all we are are strangers and I'm ok if you're ok with danger"

- Strangers

Meaning Behind the Song

"Strangers" is about quickly and aggressively jumping back into love with someone you barely know. You know that the situation is risky, and you are in a vulnerable state. You know the dangers, but decide that it's worth the wager, and jump in anyways 💙

Lyrics:

Slow down, baby slow down
A fall from here will kill me
So high above the city
Strangers, we're just strangers
A couple thieves stealing
A nighttime full of feelings

Let go, it's too late
Smeared the lipstick on your face
I can't let you know that it's killing, it's killing me
Two shots, take em down
Not too fast or we might drown
I can't let you know that it's killing, it's killing me

We both know that all we are is strangers and
I'm ok if you're ok with danger so
Tell me now, is it worth the wager?
If all we are
All we are is strangers

All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers

Slow down, baby slow down
If we don't stop to listen
Then I think we might miss it
Strangers, we're just strangers
A couple thieves stealing
A nighttime full of healing

Let go, or should I stay?
Smeared the lipstick on your face
I can't let you know that it's killing, it's killing me
Two shots, take em down
Not too fast or we might drown
I can't let you know that it's killing, it's killing me

We both know that all we are is strangers and
I'm ok if you're ok with danger so
Tell me now, is it worth the wager?
If all we are
All we are is strangers

All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers

Baby slow down,
All we, all we are
All we are is strangers
Baby slow down
All we, all we are
All we are is strangers

All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we, all we are is strangers
All we, all we
All we are is strangers

Slow down, baby slow down
All we are is strangers
All we are
Slow down, baby slow down
Strangers
All we are is strangers
