"Comfort of Strangers" as written by and Matt Ward Beth Orton....
I know the stars that shine on me
Are brighter than you and I may ever be
I know there's an answer to your question
But I don't know that I could word it right

Say what you mean don't tell it like it could be
I'm not sure, should I just say it out loud?
Say what you mean don't tell it like it could be
Alright this time I'm gonna keep that in mind

One love is better than not enough
I'd rather have no love
Than messing with the wrong stuff
It's just the comfort of strangers
Always the comfort of strangers...yeah yeah yeah

I know the sun that shines on me
On better terms than you and I may ever be
I know there's an answer to the question
But I'm not sure that I should word it right

Say what you mean don't tell it like it could be
Every time you're gonna set me free
Say what you mean don't tell it like it could be
Alright this time let's take it right home to see

One love is better than not enough
I'd rather have no love
Than messing with the wrong stuff
It's just the comfort of strangers
Always the comfort of strangers

Well some of those are like best friends
Best friends!
Ones that keep you coming round again

    Memoryfor me this song is about one-night stands or having friends with benefits when we're in love with someone else. and how we look for the "comfort of strangers" when we're feeling lonely and missing an impossible love.

    the comfort of strangers instead of the comfort of the one we really love... how it's better not to be in love than to be messing with someone that we love but is wrong for us ('wrong stuff'). one night stands = the comfort of strangers.

    been there, done that, it can hurt a lot to be with someone but thinking about someone else :/ and this song always reminds me of that.

    General Commenti think it's about looking for meaning in many different places, but you're not satisfied, you can't find the truth. the people you think hold the answers won't be straight with you, so you settle with the more superficial situations, people you don't know are lying to you.
