A Company Of Strangers

You felt the magnetism
You got the longing inside you
Don't give nothing for your prospects
You broke the cord that kept you
From drifting right away
You ain't nothing if you're not honest

Far from being over
This problem seems to run and run
Much longer than you want it

Sustained by pragmatism
Confront the longing inside you
The night you spent exploring
Must understand those feelings
Take care and don't mistake
The familiar for the boring

Far from being over
This problem seems to run and run
Much longer than you want it

Couldn't help but show her
A side that should not be revealed
In the company of strangers

Only a cultured palate
Could appreciate the taste of you
You give me food for thought
You need courage, you've got convictions
Be like a phoenix risen and set alight
The darkest night

Far from being over
This problem seems to run and run
Much longer than we want it
Far from being over
This saga's only just begun
Again

Couldn't help but show her
A side that should not be revealed
In the company of strangers

Now she's an institution
You have been insitutionalised
