TDC Lyrics- 06 Beautiful Stranger- Ogre and Briana Evigan/Twin and Merrywood
M=Ogre. F=Briana. B=Both. This was hard. I do not own these songs. I only love them, and wanted to work out what the hell they were saying.
Reckless creatures always one another find
Stealing features, each a diamond to be mined.
There are facets to stake
And crooks in our neck, we’re like moths to a flame
Get ready and set
Now tarry no longer, let’s burn one another
We’re one and we’re twain, now
Let’s play a game
Hello, hello, hello beautiful stranger
How familiar the danger
Slipping into the shadows
Tis true, tis true, tis true
Celebrities always do
Us and our shadows too
Us and our shadows
Triple the wager
Three clicks in the chamber
Three chances to claim her
And by the book, by hook, by rook, shadow takes all, my pet
My, you’re a strange duet
Shadow takes all
Cunning creatures, slither front and slither back
Double dealers, double up for their attack
I could say that I’m hurt
But it wouldn’t be true
The knife in my back
It reminds me of you
You’re my beautiful stranger
The game is afoot
It’s the shadow’s domain, so don’t pussyfoot
