lyrics

It’s much easier to fall in love with a stranger than a person. A thousand words are lost to a picture and volumes to a conversation and I, I would set pen to paper and keep you in stasis. And I, I would sketch me a portrait, but I know that I would not do you justice.

Maybe, just maybe, John, he was right after all. The Baptist or the Beatle, the poet or the evangelist. And by this time of year, my dear, I ‘m not sure it matters which is which.

I don’t have the ambition to capture all that I have seen. I ‘m not an artist, dear I’m a writer, and I’m sorry for the words you’ll read. Strangers are easier to love than people, like you’ll vote for death you will never see. The first stone, it is one light load when it’s aimed at a man you will never meet.

And I don’t mean to preach at you, but maybe, just maybe, love is all that we need. It’s such a goddamn cliché, but by this time of year it’s one I’m glad to see.

It’s much easier to fall in love with a stranger than a person. A thousand words lost to a picture and volumes to a conversation ten minutes long, a secret smile in the dark. I could write forever, but I’ll leave it at a shared cigarette and a spark.
