Don't Be A Stranger - Lyrics

We were 17, first time away from home
You lived down the hall
Went to school in Oshawa
Days would go by, you'd never leave your room
I'd ask what was wrong
You just laughed and said c'mon

It's easy for me to say:
I'm not alone with those conversations
That you have with yourself all day
Man I get it when you need escaping
When it gets too much
I love you like my own blood
So don't be a stranger

No one ever knew how you two could ever be related
You were always delicate
Despite a father with no patience
I returned his call, I tried to say, it's nobody's fault

It's easy for me to say
I'm not alone with those conversations
That you have with yourself all day
Man I get it when you need escaping
When it gets too much
I love you like my own blood
So don't be a stranger

It's 10 pm, you've been drinking
You're holding court and putting on a show
All the talent, but its a balance
I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't predict the next time it'll hit
And the urge comes on strong
To pack it in and dissolve

It's easy for me to say:
I'm not alone with those conversations
That you have with yourself all day
Man I get it when you need escaping
When it gets too much
When it gets too much
I know it gets too much
What have you been taking?
I love you like my own blood
So don't be a stranger
Don't be a stranger
Don't be a stranger
Don't be a stranger
