lyrics

We wake up and then I leave
You never make a cup of tea
And though we touch we never speak
We’re Intimate Strangers
We make love and then forget
The daylight brings us regret
Though we’ll do it all again
Like Intimate Strangers

Now I don’t fall in love coz someone is attractive
I don’t overreact all enthusiastic
Yeah she’s beautiful and that’s fantastic
But she’s been told by every person in here that has a dick
Imagine how boring a guy I would seem
If I walked up, thinking I was the guy of her dreams
Can I buy you a drink? I like your earrings, that type of corny shit
Instead I order drinks next to her but ignore the chick
And then I tap her on the shoulder and say
Excuse me, could you get out of my way
Now she’s thinking who’s this rude prick and how he’s got nerve
But she remembers me, don’t ask me how that all works
I just know an hour later, she’s hanging around where I’m at
Asking if it’s cool to take a picture wearing my hat
Now she’s saying I’m her brand new friend
And we both know exactly where this is going to end

We wake up and then I leave
You never make a cup of tea
And though we touch we never speak
We’re Intimate Strangers
We make love and then forget
The daylight brings us regret
Though we’ll do it all again
Like Intimate Strangers

And my love has never been for sale
But I’m, I’m setting up a stall I don’t care if I fall or if I fail
This intimate stranger might mean
Imminent danger
But it’s always worth the risk for her
It’s always worth the risk

Then in the heat of the moment she screams Flash
Then she asks
What’s my name? And I say pass
And she says fail, but then we laugh
Coz details like what her name is remain a mystery
But I’ll remember that she was shaven like Mr T
The game’s anonymity and we play it religiously
We don’t say if we’re single, we are the same it’s like symmetry
So don’t make the mistake of thinking that I’m the player
This is two sided
Two strangers temporarily united
For a night of passion that we’ll both remember
Or at least the next time I see her, we’ll both pretend to
Don’t enter, hanging from her door handle
Karma Sutra, 124 angles
Every liquor bottle at the bar all sampled
People trying to ring my phone but it’s call cancelled
‘til

We wake up and then I leave
You never make a cup of tea
And though we touch we never speak
We’re Intimate Strangers
We make love and then forget
The daylight brings us regret
Though we’ll do it all again
Like Intimate Strangers
