lyrics

BETTER STRANGERS

Strings and knots around my thumbs
All my fingers feel so numb
Through all the hurts I've found the sum
The pain was good but now you've had your fun

What sayeth you to me
Get thee to a nunnery
Don't you bite your thumb at me when
Love is blind and lovers cannot see

Still, I forget
all of the things I should regret
Of all the blood that I have let
The sum of all that I have left

I do not wonder where you go
I do not wonder if you're home
I must remind myself that
knowing you is so much harder
I wish I couldn't see your face
I wish I couldn't say your name
I think I find myself as
wishing we were better strangers still

Remember when you said to me
I wear my heart upon my sleeve
If you prick us do we not bleed
But for my part it was Greek to me

This is our journey's end
Tempt us not us desperate men
Two sure ways to lose a friend when
One is to borrow the other to lend

Still, I forget
all of the things I should regret
Of all the blood that I have let
The sum of all that I have left

I do not wonder where you go
I do not wonder if you're home
I must remind myself that
knowing you is so much harder
I wish I couldn't see your face
I wish I couldn't say your name
I think I find myself as
wishing we were better strangers
Still, I forget
all of the things I should regret

I do not wonder where you go
I do not wonder if you're home
I must remind myself that
knowing you is so much harder
I wish I couldn't see your face
I wish I couldn't say your name
I think I find myself as
wishing we were better strangers
I do not wonder where you go
I do not wonder if you're home
I must remind myself that
knowing you is so much harder
I wish I couldn't see your face
I wish I couldn't say your name
I think I find myself as
wishing we were better strangers
still
