Airborne Toxic Event, The - Strange Girl Lyrics

It was an old song from,
"Kiss me, Kiss me, Kiss me" that she sang
It was an old line
I kept it with me, with me, with me when she rang

You're such a strange girl
You're such a strange, strange girl
You're such a strange girl

It's all been erased
Everyone is telling me
It's slightly deranged
Everyone is telling me

We traded blindness for wisdom
And some lines around our eyes
But you just act like it was a fact of life
It didn't come as a surprise

You're such a strange girl
You're such a strange, strange girl
You're such a strange girl

And no you can't ever go home
Everything has changed and people are gone
Some close your eyes
You try to summon a song
And you feel your life falling under you like a slide,
Like a slide

It was an old song
I once knew every note and every line
It was a long night
When I carried you and you carried me for a time

You're such a strange girl
You're such a strange, strange girl
You're such a strange girl

It's all been erased,
Everyone is telling me
It's slightly deranged,
Everyone is telling me

I dreamt of your face
And what the song was telling me
Time has made it all obscene
And trapped us in our dreams

  2. maxwellis4

    She is strange if she is sleeping while a whole band is playing in her bedroom.

  3. dizzotizzo69

    She was a strange girl. I walked into the bedroom and she told me to lick her dogs paws and take the liquid chocolate off the dresser and drizzle it on her cat's head while she put glitter in her butthole, howled and tapped her feet to Elvis on the record player.

  4. Julie TRAVERS

    Are you a strange girl? Yes, sir, ammm. What of it?

    I would cry probably forever if I woke up to find that Airborne sang to me in the middle of the night and I wasn't awake to listen.

    Roll on Tuesday at Manchester Uni

  56. HalogenDrum

    This is unreal. Best band ever!! April 9th, Dublin i shall be front row x)

  57. WashingtonSYRA

    The fun bit is that you did it in the dark - "by feel" is easy to do on strings and drums, but... keyboard?

  58. Deborah Dimond

    The song is genus, shooting an entire music video without a single piece of cumbersome lighting equipment… also genius.

  59. XxBlackxXFaithXx

    addicted on so many levels

  60. Don Ender

    Fun music video I liked the green night goggle affect along with everybody playing while she sleeps undisturbed in her room.
