Not far from the rigors of the city
There is a paved road that unwinds
If you go there you will find me sitting
On a broken bench breathing the night

So hard for you to tell me what you're thinking
Always a stranger, always a stranger
So far for you to see me now you're blinking
I think you're amazing, girl, I think you're amazing

I turn my hands, my palms are libraries
And now the evening swallowed me
If you go there you will find me sitting (we are snowflakes driving cars, together two of us alike)
On a broken bench breathing the night (our temperatures the same we melt, this night, this night, this night)

So hard for you to tell me what you're thinking
Always a stranger, always a stranger
So far for you to see me now you're blinking
I think you're amazing, girl, I think you're amazing
Yehhh
Girl I think you're amazing

I'm waiting here alone
I'm waiting here alone
So hard for you to tell me what you're thinking
Always a stranger, always a stranger
So far for you to see me now you're blinking
I think you're amazing, girl, I think you're amazing
Yehhh

    My InterpretationAlways a stranger - Well, this is a good one! As are all the others, but hey! (Shelby)
    In this song I like the lyrics ;- So hard for you to tell me what your thinking, Always a stranger, always a stranger, I like these lyrics cause, it says, you think you know someone, but yet, you can't always tell what's wrong, or something like that, like the person you know has another side to them, which you've never known before, and even though you have known them for so long, they're still a stranger in your mind, if that makes sense to anyone out there.

    I also like, 'I turn my hands my palms are libaries, and now the evening's swallowed me'
    It's hard for me to explain why I like this, but I'll have a go, It's like you know someone who generally knows everything, and can never admit that they are wrong, and they are so wrapped up in their own thoughts, that they don't think about anything else (and now the evening's swallowed me)


    Admitidly, people may think that it's a weird explanation to how I see the song, but oh well ;)

    Song MeaningI have to say i really do love this song i know am going to say that alot about all of the songs ;).But I just love how this song get me in a good mood of I'm feeling low it put a smile on my face :). The lyrics that mean something to me is:"So hard for you to tell me what you're thinking Always a stranger, always a stranger So far for you to see me now you're blinking" I have to say this lyrics mean you know some one but you really don't know them like you think you do so then are really a stranger of you think about it of you guys know what i mean. and this lyrics "I turn my hands, my palms are libraries And now the evening swallowed me" To me it means you have so much on your mend and you don't know what to do with it all so it get to you. i don't know of that it does mean that but to me it does. :)It is a really good song and I love how Roy song it and ever than about it. I have to say to I really love the music video to this song to.
