Little Joy – With Strangers lyrics

I bet you're wondering how I knew
That this would come to an end
He stole your heart from you
So you tossed me out to the wind

I keep pretending not to care
Oh the winter scent in her hair
Compels my hands to do
The things my heart wouldn't dare

I'll keep holding on to you
See no use perfecting lives with strangers
If only you, if only now

And in the twilight of this hour
When fools are mistaken for men
This shadow suits me well
My regrets are faced in the end

I'll keep holding on to you
See no use perfecting lives with strangers
If only you, if only now (x2)

    Yeah good points here.
    1st verse - the inevitable. Not being able to control smething as its happening right n=in front of you.
    2nd verse- the "i keep pretending not to care" to me, means these things he's doing with his hands arent with the one he's supposed to be doing them with in his mind at least.
    1st chorus- not being able to let something go
    not wanting to be with someone else.
    3rd verse- he realize he made a big mistake because now he has lost both people. Same people thing happen to me. Fab is a great musician and a brilliant lyricist and amazing drummer! This song hits so close to home for me. Megan, if you ever see this. I will always love you.

    Yes, I think so too. Its a really melancholy song. I like it so much. Not because I could identify with this, but I know this mood so much. The sound an this beatiful voice go just into my soul. When I hear it I feel a little understood. You know what I mean? It seems like it's written from heard with much emotions. Not just for fun. This is what I like.
