I might not make it home
So don't set a plate for me
Our department's been getting slammed
Since the comebacks in marketing
Put your pictures on my desk
I'm wearing the sweater you made
So give the girls a kiss for me
Tell them daddy's working late

The worst thing that she ever said to me
Was the first thing that she ever said to me
I was all alone at happy hour
She thought I could use some company
It's strange we're strangers

I might not make it home
I guess I've used than line before
My excuses are wearing thin
And you patience is getting worse
You're always fast asleep
When I sneak into be at night
Or at least that's how it seems, It seems
We'll do anything to hide the lie

The worst thing you could ever say to me
Could be the last thing that you'll ever say to me
I can see you boxing up the kitchen
With the girls beside you wrapping dishes
Don't be a stranger

You don't have to say a word
You don't have to make excuses
You don't have to change for me
We'll continue on as strangers

You don't have to say a word
(The worst thing that she ever said to me)
You don't have to make excuses
(Was the first thing that she ever said to me)
You don't have to change for me
(I was all alone at happy hour)
We'll continue on as strangers
(She thought I could use some company)
Stranger than strangers

    General CommentSome of these lyrics are really really incorrect. Beautiful song nonetheless. Tim Kasher is indeed my favorite songwriter!

    I might not make it home
    So don’t set a plate for me
    Our department’s been getting slammed
    Since the comebacks in marketing
    Put your pictures on my desk
    I’m wearing the sweater you made
    So give the girls a kiss for me
    Tell them daddy’s working late

    The worst thing that she ever said to me
    Was the first thing that she ever said to me
    I was all alone at happy hour
    She thought I could use some company
    It’s strange we’re strangers

    I might not make it home
    I guess I’ve used than line before
    My excuses are wearing thin
    And you patience is getting worse
    You’re always fast asleep
    When I sneak into be at night
    Or at least that’s how it seems, It seems
    we’ll do anything to hide the lie

    The worst thing you could ever say to me
    Could be the last thing that you’ll ever say to me
    I can see you boxing up the kitchen
    With the girls beside you wrapping dishes
    Don’t be a stranger

    You don’t have to say a word
    You don’t have to make excuses
    You don’t have to change for me
    We’ll continue on as strangers

    You don’t have to say a word
    (The worst thing that she ever said to me)
    You don’t have to make excuses
    (Was the first thing that she ever said to me)
    You don’t have to change for me

    We’ll continue on as strangers

    Stranger than strangers…
