Strangers
Halsey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She doesn't kiss me on the mouth anymore
'Cause it's more intimate, than she thinks we should get
She doesn't look me in the eyes anymore
Too scared of what she'll see, somebody holding me

When I wake up all alone
And I'm thinking of your skin
I remember, I remember what you told me

Said that we're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all
We're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all

She doesn't call me on the phone anymore
She's never listening, she says it's innocent
She doesn't let me have control anymore
I must've crossed a line, I must've lost my mind

When I wake up all alone
And I'm thinking of your skin
I remember, I remember what you told me

Said that we're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all
We're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all

I miss the mornings with you laying in my bed
I miss the memories replaying in my head
I miss the thought of a forever, you and me
But all you're missing is my body, oh

Said we're not lovers (we're not lovers)
'Cause we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all

We're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all (anything)

To feel anything at all
To feel anything at all
(You lost it)




(You lost it)
(You lost it)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Halsey's song Strangers express the pain of a relationship that is no longer intimate. The singer of the song misses the physical and emotional connection that she used to have with her partner, but the partner now sees their relationship as a mere physical one with no emotional component. The intimacy is gone, and their relationship is now reduced to that of strangers, who share a common desire to be touched and loved. However, the partner is not willing to take the relationship to the next level of intimacy, which leaves the singer feeling lonely and misunderstood. The song is an expression of the pain of a relationship that is stagnant and no longer fulfilling.
