My Stranger
EGZOD Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Call me young and call me reckless
Let a stranger close to me
Just one look and I knew better
Promised sights I’ve never seen

Once a mistake, twice just foolish
Comes to you, I’m so naïve
Whatever you say I’ll do it
Moth to flame, you take the lead

I know my mama taught me better
Cracked beneath your gentle pressure
Made me beg like I have never
You’re no good for me, my stranger

Neon lights and sticky counters
In a haze we disappear
I disregard the ringing warnings
While you whisper in my ear

Fly across the world in secret
Made a paradise with me
But reality keeps rolling
Counting down ‘til when you leave

Once a mistake, twice just foolish
Comes to you, I’m so naïve
Whatever you say I’ll do it
Moth to flame, you take the lead

I know my mama taught me better
Cracked beneath your gentle pressure
Made me beg like I have never
You’re no good for me, my stranger

You’re no good for me, my stranger
You’re no good for me, my stranger
You’re no good for me, my stranger




You’re no good
You’re no good for me, my stranger

Overall Meaning

The song "My Stranger" by Egzod & RIELL is a tale of youthful naivety and recklessness in the face of desire. The singer of the song admits that they know they are making a mistake by allowing a stranger into their life, but they cannot help themselves. The stranger promised them things they have never seen and the singer is willing to risk it all to experience it. They know their mother taught them better, but they still succumb to the stranger's gentle pressure and find themselves pleading for things they never thought they would.


As the song progresses, the singer describes the neon lights and sticky counters of their encounters with the stranger. They disappear into a haze and disregard the warnings of their better judgment as the stranger whispers in their ear. They travel across the world to create a paradise with the stranger, but there is a sense of impending doom as reality keeps rolling. The countdown to when the stranger will leave is always present, and the singer knows that they may be foolish to keep giving in to the stranger's lead.


The chorus reinforces the idea that the stranger is no good for the singer. They know it, but they cannot seem to resist. The repetition of "You're no good for me, my stranger" drives home the point that the singer is fully aware of the danger they are in, but they cannot seem to leave it behind.

Lyrics :
Call me young and call me reckless
Let a stranger close to me
Just one look and I knew better
Promised sights I've never seen

Once a mistake, twice just foolish
Comes to you I'm so naive
Whatever you say I'll do it
Moth to flame, you take the lead
I know my mama taught me better
Cracked beneath your gentle pressure
Made me beg like I have never
You're no good for me my stranger

(My stranger)

Neon lights and sticky counters
In a haze we disappear
I disregard the ringing warnings
While you whisper in my ear

Fly across the world in secret
Made a paradise with me
But reality keeps rolling
Counting down 'till when you leave

Once a mistake, twice just foolish
Comes to you I'm so naive
Whatever you say I'll do it
Moth to flame you take the lead
I know my mama taught me better
Cracked beneath your gentle pressure
Made me beg like I have never
You're no good for me my stranger

(You're no good for me my stranger
You're no good for me my stranger
You're no good for me my stranger)

Tw. But please read.

I had a friend once I met online. I thought she was perfect. We wrote every night and day. But at a specific point she started to write sucidal shit. I was 3 years younger than her, had panic everytime she wrote that, offered her my help the best way I could do, told her how amazing she was, had hope to keep her alive by my words. Still. She didn't stop texting me this shit. Even a friend of mine wrote a long message to her, telling her to stop texting me all these things. I have to say that I looked terrible back then.
She never stopped. At the same time, she always told me that she loves me so so much, keeping me close to her.

At some point, I was numb to the messages and stopped caring about her. She texted me day and night, still telling me all that. I was just tired, if not even depressed and fcked up myself. My best friend (now) gave me the confidence to break the contact with her.

This song reminds me of her but helped me to recover. Thank you.
Take care and realise, if someone is using and manipulating you.
You are amazing.

Valiant, thank you for uploading tracks like this.

Thanks again for sharing this kind of gold with others.
