Vampire Weekend - Stranger Lyrics




I-I-I-I
Things have never been stranger
I-I-I-I
Things are gonna stay strange
I-I-I-I
I remember life as a stranger
But things change

Another night indoors
Another sign of life
Wobbling up through the floor

You and Kidada
Ooh, I might get low, low, low
But now I'm too high to know

The sound of you and your sister
I couldn't face these days alone
You got the right light, candles burning
We don't need the moon anymore

I used to look for an answer
I used to knock on every door
But you got the wave on, music playing
Don't need to look anymore

You and Kidada
Ooh, the lights get low, low, low
And I've got nowhere to go

I used to freeze on the dance floor
I watched the icebergs from the shore
But you got the heat on, kettle screaming
Don't need to freeze anymore

You and Kidada
Ooh, the lights get low, low, low
And I've got nowhere to go

Who knows the reason
That kindness lost its hold?
Those better angels
Confined to minor roles

I left the wilding, wilding, wilding days of old
Your house is warmer
The wilderness is cold

You and Kidada
Ooh, the lights get low, low, low
And I've got nowhere to go

Vampire Weekend Stranger Comments
  1. Ben

    should've used the prismizer smh

  2. Jeremy Deutch

    The best part is that fart at 1:18

  3. Jenny and The Betts

    Paul Simon vibes ☀️

  4. Lil’ Fetus

    The first verse sounds like Bowie with the instrumentation

  5. lino_1000

    Does anyone else hear their songs in old navy?

  6. Amanda Louise

    Love this song....

  7. Guy Vandermire

    Mmmmmmm....... part Vampire Weekend, part Joanna Newsome, part Grateful Dead, with a dash of what made Springsteen's Born To Run album so great. The new vampire weekend album is a celebration of living in the end of the second decade of the new millenium, as the song Thunder Road was a celebration of living in the eighties.

  8. nickpharvey

    Anyone else's favorite song on the album?

  9. Alice Landy

    Not only my favourite Vampire Weekend song, but possibly one of my favourite songs ever. Nothing better than country vibes like this. Thanks for making music which always makes me happy!

  10. Bradley Marquette

    My favorite off the new album.

  11. alatasam

    super cool

  12. Michael Walsh

    Wicked playlist! Thank you.

  13. Sundeep Wanniarachchi

    Soundtrack for Stranger Things.

    PhoenixRise 1337

    Wrong time period

  14. Dan J

    As soon as the beat comes in, I keep hearing "When the Morning Comes" by Hall & Oates, which is a compliment!!

  15. Renaldo Matadeen

    I was waiting for the Jackson 5 to come on, and for Ezra to marry Haim

  16. pallerdog

    VW came through.

    🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  19. Ryan Lucas

    why was this band forgotten?

    Simulacreage

    In my experience they weren't forgotten at all? Probably depends on your social circle

  20. Mario Barrios

    Feels like a Bill Wurtz song!

  21. Erik Thorne

    this is the best song on the album - no doubt about it

    Gustavo Cruz Zamora

    Honestly

  22. Cristian Ortiz

    Fucking great álbum. Love it.

  23. banannieable

    My absolute favourite from the album. Top notch stuff

  24. Ricky Tucker

    This song is the sound of two halves of a heart mending.
    So sweet.
    And when I found out it was about Rashida Jones, I died, was born, then died again. <3

  25. 0=Axel=0

    As someone who got out of 6+year relationship 10 hours ago, this song is affecting me on an indescribable level.

  26. Luke Summers

    NEED a live version.

  27. Elena Páez

    FUNKY!!!!!

  28. Tim Heckerd

    This whole album makes me feel so nostalgic, and idk why it doesn't bring back any specific memories. It just weirdly makes me feel nostalgic about nothing. But I love it

  29. Sergej Lovrekovic

    1:43 is like a reincarnation, pure bliss, turns sadness into hope and kindness and happiness

  30. Joe Corbett

    This album is the Tits... well worth the 6 year wait... I keep thinking I've found my fav song and it keeps changing but I might have listened to this 50x already....

    Joe Corbett

    @masturball yeah definitely not a hipster but prep I could get away with 😂😂

    danny moulton

    @masturball Step

    masturball

    @danny moulton dude mine too, that song is insane

    Erik Thorne

    masturball

    @Erik Thorne fingerback is one of the worst songs and makes me doubt whether that guy is a real fan

  31. Simi Bro

    My favourite with "Sympathy" and "Sunflower" and "This life" ! :)

  32. Alukards Castle

    This album is officially Graceland 2!!!

  33. Peter Manzer

    Fans of Vampire Weekend should be called Vampbites

  34. Adrian Morgan

    Can anyone tell me who does the choirs?

    João Couto

    It's Danielle Haim you damn potatoes with eyes, of course it's her

    Adrian Morgan

    @João Couto hey dude it's not necessary to be rude.
    Could be her or could be not. I was just telling they possibility of being Greta Morgan because I saw her singing the choirs in some of the last live videos of VW and because Haim is not featured in the title. But sure could still be her although there's no reason for you to answer me like that.

    João Couto

    @Adrian Morgan ahaha sorry man didn't want to come off as rude xd i never call people potatoes unless i'm fully kidding

    João Couto

    i mean "potatoes" is an objectively funny word

    UdyanAionoVids

    Adrian Morgan Danielle is all over the album, not just the 3 duets so yes it’s her.

  35. Trin bee

  37. Pedro Henrique Lima
