Goddamn this dusty room
This hazy afternoon
I'm breathing in this silence like never before
This feeling that I get
This one last cigarette
As I lay awake and wait for you to come through that door
Oh maybe, maybe, maybe I can share it with you
I behave, I'll behave, I behave so I can share it with you

You are not alone, dear loneliness
You forgot but I remember this
Oh stranger, stranger, stranger things have happened I know
I'm not alone, dear loneliness
I forgot that I remember this
Oh stranger, stranger, stranger things have happened I know, oh ohh, oh ohhh

We'll dream about somewhere, our smoke will fill the air
As I lay awake and wait for you to walk out that door

I can change, I can change, I can change
But who do you want me to be?
I'm the same, I'm the same, I'm the same, oh do you want me to be?

You are not alone, dear loneliness
You forgot but I remember this
Oh stranger, stranger, stranger things have happened I know, oh ohh, oh ohh

I am not alone dear loneliness
I forgot that I remember this
You are not alone dear loneliness
You forgot but I remember this
Oh stranger, stranger, stranger things have happened I know

I am not alone, dear loneliness
I forgot that I remember this
Oh stranger, stranger, stranger things have happened I know, oh ohh, oh ohh

    I guess the character in this lyrics talking to himself in silence and different feelings going through his mind. Maybe he is in dillema.

    I love this song, it's been stuck in my head all day. I think that it could definitely have some Nirvana-era influence to it, but overall I think it's just about loneliness and the repeating cycle of life. He's not alone, but he feels alone. This song has really good imagery nearer to the starting that makes me think of an aftermath of a high. "One last cigarette" is a perfect lyric for this song because it shows weakness.
