lyrics

I couldn't dream how many times you hear
Your eyes, they made pupils out of mine. So clear
They're the teacher of the year

I don't mind and might never stop explaining
What I would or wouldn't do just to get you in my arms
And I won't be monster, left to rot inside a brain cell
Today, I learn to love a stranger

Back from the record store, a rack marked clear
Oh my, need to get my fix and find a needle here
for the album of the year

I don't mind and might never stop explaining
What I would or wouldn't do just to get you in my arms
And I won't be a coward, thrown to hide inside a waveform
Today, I learn to love a stranger

Somewhere on a couch
Ron and Frankie sprawling out
In the blue hour of the morning
Somewhere I'm heavy-shouldered, headlong dreaming

Would you mind filling out the dotted line right here?
Did you find me irresistibly refined and all sincere
As I slouched away in fear?

I don't mind and might never stop explaining
What I would or wouldn't do just to get you in my arms
And I'll breathe like a baby if I'm ever born in your eyes
Today, I learn to love a stranger
Can you love a stranger?
