"Strangers" as written by and Dave Davies....
Where are you going I don't mind
I've killed my world and I've killed my time
So where do I go what do I see
I see many people coming after me
So where are you going to I don't mind
If I live too long I'm afraid I'll die
So I will follow you wherever you go
If your offered hand is still open to me
Strangers on this road we are on
We are not two we are one
So you've been where I've just come
From the land that brings losers on
So we will share this road we walk
And mind our mouths and beware our talk
'Till peace we find tell you what I'll do
All the things I own I will share with you
If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
We'll take what we want and give the rest away
Strangers on this road we are on
We are not two we are one
Holy man and holy priest
This love of life makes me weak at my knees
And when we get there make your play
'cause soon I feel you're gonna carry us away
In a promised lie you made us believe
For many men there is so much grief
And my mind is proud but it aches with rage
And if I live too long I'm afraid I'll die
Strangers on this road we are on
We are not two we are one
Strangers on this road we are on
We are not two we are one

    General CommentI'd say Oklahoma USA is their most delicate. This may be their most heart-felt and sincere

    General CommentI know this has nothing to do with the song's "meaning," but I've thought for years that this song sounds like it belongs in a Wes Anderson film and now it's in Darjeeling. I feel psychic.

    General Commentthe fear of dying will never fade but the love for a life where everythings possible is never going to go away

    i've not seen darjeeling ltd but when ray's voice starts breaking it makes me want to lie on ground and never get up

    General CommentI shed some tears during TDL when Adrien Brody emerged from the river with his boy to save. That entire sequence just kills me.
    I don't usually shed tears at songs or music or anything.

    Anyways, I just thing this song captures a lot of the struggle we all go through, but it has the optimism we all need. It really is touching.

    General CommentI don't think the song was a perfect fit, it tells such a story itself, and to me the moods don't match. I loved the movie by the way, but I love the song more.
