she feels like a stranger has come in the night and stolen her life and left her with this and boughs break on ebony toothaches
she is a flask trapped inside a fall
i know you need to find what you thought you left behind in a past life
i won't question why the only light that you have you give away
i know you need to find what you thought you left behind in a past life
i won't question why the only light that you have you give away
she feels like a stranger has come in the night and stolen her life and left her with this

    General CommentIt's not about a suicide, per se. It's more like, she doesnt know who she is anymore. The "stranger" that came "in the night," is what she's become. She opened her eyes one day and didn't know who she was or how she got there.

    It could also be about betrayal. Someone broke her... not her heart (it's not a sappy love song...) but broke her spirit. Changed who she was. Someone she didnt like. To the point where it's hard to see the purpose of living.

    .... At least that's what it means to me when I listen to it. With the exception of maybe "I, Manface" this is probably my favorite Man Man song. It's so simple and rythmic and dark. I just LOVE it.
