i'm in love with a stranger

who was i when you last saw me? 

i’ve been 20 people since then 

who am i to introduce me 

when i don’t yet know who i am today 


i need the world to stay paused 


cause i’m in love with a stranger 

and she looks a lot like me 

i wanna be her later but i’m still tryna break free from me  


she keeps lavender in an empty glass bottle 

and sings songs bout running away

she keeps cutting her own hair and it’s funny 

she looks like someone else each day 


and she seems to make the world pause  


i’m in love with a stranger 

and she looks a lot like me 

i wanna be her later but i’m still tryna break free

i’m in love with a stranger 

and she’s the one that got away 

in a world of construction paper

i know i can’t stay 


she lives in a world she made up 


i’m in love with a stranger 

and she looks a lot like me 

i wanna be her later but i’m still tryna break free

i’m in love with a stranger 

and she’s the one that got away 

in a world of construction paper

i know i can’t stay
