Lyrics



I-I-I-I

Things have never been stranger

I-I-I-I

Things are gonna stay strange

I-I-I-I

I remember life as a stranger

But things change



Another night indoors

Another sign of life

Wobbling up through the floor



You and Kidada

Ooh, I might get low, low, low

But now I'm too high to know



The sound of you and your sister

I couldn't face these days alone

You got the right light, candles burning

We don't need the moon anymore



I used to look for an answer

I used to knock on every door

But you got the wave on, music playing

Don't need to look anymore



You and Kidada

Ooh, the lights get low, low, low

And I've got nowhere to go



I used to freeze on the dance floor

I watched the icebergs from the shore

But you got the heat on, kettle screaming

Don't need to freeze anymore



You and Kidada

Ooh, the lights get low, low, low

And I've got nowhere to go



Who knows the reason

That kindness lost its hold?

Those better angels

Confined to minor roles



I left the wilding, wilding, wilding days of old

Your house is warmer

The wilderness is cold



You and Kidada

Ooh, the lights get low, low, low

And I've got nowhere to go
