Comfort Of Strangers

(Beth Orton / Jim O'Rourke / Matt Ward)

Lyrics

I know the stars that shine on me
Are brighter than you or I may ever be
I know there's an answer to your question
But I don't know that I could word it right

Say what you mean
Don't tell it like it could be
I'm not sure should I just say it out loud
Say what you mean
Don't tell it like it could be
Or at this time I'm gonna keep that in mind

One love is better than not enough
I'd rather have no love than messing with the wrong stuff

It's just the comfort of strangers
Always the comfort of strangers
Yeah Yeah Yeah

I know the sun that shines on me
From better times than you or I may ever be
I know there's an answer to the question
But I'm not sure that I should word it right

Say what you mean
Don't tell it like it could be
Every time your gonna set me free
Say what you mean
Don't tell it like it could be
Or this time let's take it right home to see

One love is better than not enough
I'd rather have no love than messing with the wrong stuff
It's just the comfort of strangers
Always the comfort of strangers

Why some of those are like best friends best friends
Ones that keep coming round again

#9 Mix Lyrics

I know the stars that shine on me
Are brighter than you or I may ever be
I know the answer to your question
Don't know that I could word it right

Come on and say what you mean
Don't say it like it should be
This time I could keep it in mind
Come on and say what you mean
Don't say it like it could be
This time I'm running right out of time

One love is better than not enough
I'd rather have no love than messing with the wrong stuff

Like the comfort of strangers
It's just the comfort of strangers

I know the sun that shines on me
From better times than you or I could ever be
I know the reason to the question
I don't know how I would word it right

Come on and say what you mean
Don't say it like it should be
This time I'm gonna keep it in mind
Say what you mean
Don't say it like it could be
This time I've run right out of time

One love is better than not enough
I'd rather have no love than messing with the wrong stuff
Like the comfort of strangers
Always the comfort of strangers

Like best friends best friends
Keep coming round again
Yeah yeah yeah
Just the comfort of strangers
