03. Stranger Ways

Lowborn
by Anberlin



 

locking eyes a waning glance

mistook chance of adding meaning to the words forever

broken silence defiance, misspoke turn

will i see you again if ever

c'mon and leave me here on a vagabond throne

wondering the night alone

right now youíre over there in a social club state

pondering the why, why are we alone

a little bit closer to finding the real you

little bit closer to finding the truth

stranger things have happened

stronger men have answered

a little bit closer to loving you

depth defying iím lying

if I didnít tell you, you keep me up awake at night

is it alright if I call you lover even though we donít know

each other, and probably never will

would you stay with me

here in my dreams if I promised you this heaven

would you take a chance

on a make believe dance

close my eyes and we're together


stranger things have happened

stronger men have answered

a little bit closer defining the real you

little bit closer defining the truth

a little bit closer to holding you

a little bit closer to knowing you

a little bit closer to touching you



Behind the Song:
One of the guys in the band didnít like this song, he wanted me to rewrite the lyrics and melodies, I just couldnít do it. The song was so subconsciously ideal, I felt it matched the mood of the music that was given to me.

I imagined someone who simply watched someone from afar, never confident enough to approach the person and simply have a conversation. Instead of dreaming with the person, they simply resign to dream of the person.

The title will only be known to those at AP.NET

'right now you're over there in a social club state' was supposed to be Right now you're over there in a Pinewood Social Club state (because its one of my favorite places in Nashville) but when I tried to sing it it was way too wordy.

The video for this song was done by Daniel Davidson, and is perhaps my favorite video we have ever done. The meaning behind the video is so perfect as a last video. Good job Nathan. - Stephen Christian
