"Stranger Side" as written by Iain Denis Archer and Gabrielle Ann Aplin....
A funny little heart, in a funny little box
Never take it out, 'cause it might get dropped
Bottle up and hide
Tell a little lie if you must, if you must

See the crooked man trying to walk the crooked mile
See the crooked lady with her crooked little smile
They see us as they pass and they don't know what they make of us,
To make of us

'Cause you and I, you and I, you and I
We see a stranger side of things
You and I, you and I, you and I
We dream a stranger kind of dream
We walk a weirder side of the street

Get an education, get a job, get a life
A little white fence and the feeling you've arrived
Sit yourself down,
Take a look around and give up, and give up

Save up all the pennies and then spend them in the shops
Everybody's trekking 'til the day they're gonna drop
They're from another planet and they don't know what they make of us,
To make of us

You and I, you and I, you and I
We see a stranger side of things
You and I, you and I, you and I
We dream a stranger kind of dream
We walk a weirder side of the street, of the street

Stop what you're doing, take your eyes off the screen
You've always got a feeling, but you don't know what it means
Step across a line
With an open mind and let go, and let go

You and I, you and I, you and I
We see a stranger side of things
You and I, you and I, you and I
We dream a stranger kind of dream
We walk a weirder side of the street

    My InterpretationI believe that this song is about a couple who sees how everyone else is living their boring lives, but they know that what the others are doing is so typical, and they don't want to be like them. They want to live life like they want, not like how they're expected to.
