lyrics

You ate Mishkaki down in Dar es Salaam
while I learned to say "fuck it" from the 14th Lama
I was so young and so unprotected
You were so hip and so unexpected
You spent your days with right-wing baristas
I was radicalized by the Sandinistas
You thought "I love you" meant that I would change
I thought "forever" meant you'd stay the same

Chorus:
We can't connect, our frequency's tuned out
What's it all about?
It's harder than we know, It's harder than we know
We're older now, the wisdom's running out
Such a turnabout!
We're stronger than we know, we're stronger than we know

I fell in love with a girl north of Houston
I never could tell her I was too tongue tied then
An once with a bookworm I was primed and ready
I think that she loved me but I was unsteady
Then there was the girl from the restaurant
we shared secrets and cigs in a dark corner lot
Alone in her room playing Mad Libs and hoping
but we were too scared so many lines unspoken

Chorus

Life is a series of small random moments
you either embrace or prepare to be broken
Will you know love when it looks in your face?
Will you take the leap or run for the gate?
Flashbacks of past lives all bound up together
slip in and out like the snow fallen weather
Ours is a fate of competing emotions
the feast of the flesh or undying devotion

Chorus

We're strong, we're strong
We're stronger than we know
We're stronger than we know
We're strong, we're strong
We're stronger than we know
We're stronger than we know
