"Strangers" as written by and Ed Harcourt....
Deliciously
I drink up all your tears
On a piano out of tune
I sit and persevere

Deliriously
I eat up all your words
And jumble them around
'Til they become absurd

Remember how it was
They said it wouldn't last
You proved them wrong
Took on everyone

Ferociously
We fumble in the dark
Two lovers acting like strangers
Society won't cage

Remember how it was
They said it wouldn't work
You proved them wrong
Took on everyone

Like a clock that can't keep time
Bad thoughts to hide
Or a poem that can't ever rhyme
Now strangers sing, this song for her

Mao mao mao

Oh remember how it was
They said it wouldn't last
You proved them wrong
Took on everyone

Remember how it was
Remember how it was

    General Commentto me, ed harcourt is saying to the person he loves, I can cheer you up, and I can mess things up, and bring you down. We can forget who we are and act like we don't know eachother anymore, but we stay together through those times, where we forget what we are even doing, but we remember why we got together in the first place, and so many have and are going through this path right now.
