Ron Pope – Strangers Lyrics

Strangers Lyrics – Ron Pope

Said goodbye to Los Angeles then I boarded the plane,
Searching for a version of myself before the pain,
And the players in my story, they still look much the same,
But the boys I used to laugh with, I am watching as they change.

We grow up, we grow old, we move on and we grow cold.
We’re afraid, so we stay, feeling things we just can’t say.
It is hard enough when you are standing out there all alone,
And the ones you love are changing into strangers.

The ritual we play at is so simple and so pure,
With a hint of desperation in my voice, cause I’m unsure.
Aching for a simpler time but needing so much more,
Remembering those nights that seemed so endless long before…

We grow up, we grow old, we move on and we grow cold.
We’re afraid, so we stay, feeling things we just can’t say.
It is hard enough when you are standing out there all alone,
And the ones you love are changing into strangers.

All my failures at redemption overshadowed by success
I do not think I have earned and so I’m fraying at the edges,
And my seams have come undone,
So I wonder when enough is enough…

Think about that dancer, in her rapture in the dark,
And my longing for her answer, for some beauty, or a spark,
And that never ending hunger as she laid there in my arms,
Moving forwards, looking backwards, still unsure of what we are…
