lyrics

Hello distant stranger, I've been wonderin' where you've been
I missin', I'm kissin', your arms as they draw so near
Your shadow has me guessin', is what I see a façade
To dance with, romance with, my gut's tellin' me that it's too hard

I've been quite mistaken, of what I have been chasin'
The silly things, the careless dreams of you

Welcome back my darlin', I've been dreamin' of you so long,
Driftin', reminiscin', the time when I heard our song
The door way was wide open, for you to come back and play
You tease me, believe me, I've got a few things I've got to say

I've been quite mistakin', of what I have been chasin'
The silly things, the careless dreams of you

You knock at my door, do I really want more?
I've got to stop and think, maybe I need a drink
Was I wastin' my time, thinkin' I was first in line?
I didn't see the truth, even with all this proof
Your news ain't so good, I don't think I should
So please I release your disease

Goodbye distant stranger, you're not wanted here anymore
You're twisted, you've persisted now I think you better head toward the door
Freedom brings me pleasure, no more reason for you to stay
Look out now, I'm sayin', "Ciao"
Lookin' forward to a brand new day

I've been quite mistakin, of what I have been chasin
The silly things, the careles dreams of you....are over

about

Strangelove Labs Oakland, California

For almost a year, ominous rumors have been privately circulating among high-level Western leaders that a trio of musicians were at work on the ultimate musical weapon: A crossbreed of vintage keyboard sounds with oddball stringed instruments, built on vocal harmonies and pop grooves as pure and natural as our precious bodily fluids. ... more
