About Strangers

"Strangers" is a song written by Dave Davies and performed by British rock group the Kinks. It was released in November 1970 on the Kinks' LP record album Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One, which is best known for producing the hit single "Lola". "Strangers" is one of two tracks written by Dave Davies on the album, the other being "Rats". He has said that the song is about an old school friend who died of a drug overdose. Although never released as a single, it has remained popular with fans to this day, especially after it was used in the 2007 Wes Anderson film The Darjeeling Limited (along with two other album tracks written by Ray Davies, "This Time Tomorrow" and "Powerman"). A cover of the song recorded live by Norah Jones was included as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of her 2009 album The Fall. A cover by Feist was released on the CD included with the DVD of her documentary Look at What the Light Did Now. Indie folk rock duo Wye Oak performed a version of the song in May 2010 for The A. V. Club's A. V. Undercover series. It has also been covered by alternative rock supergroup Golden Smog on their album Another Fine Day, Indie rock band Piebald, folk band Crooked Fingers, punk singer Ben Weasel on his first solo album Fidatevi, and folk pop band Lucius on the extended edition of their 2016 album Good Grief.

Where you going? I don't know.
I've killed my world, and I've killed my time.
So where do I go? What do i see?
I see many people coming after me.
Well, here you going to? Well, I don't mind.
If I live too long, I'm afraid I'll die.
So I will follow you wherever you go,
If your offered hand is still open to me.

Strangers on this road we are on.
We are not two, we are one.

So you been where I just come
From---the land that brings losers on.
And we will share this road we walk.
And mind our mouths, and beware of our talk.
Till peace we find
Tell you what I'll do.
All the things I own I'll share with you.
And if I feel tomorrow like I feel today,
We'll take what we want, give the rest away.

Strangers on this road we are on.
We are not two, we are one.

Holy man and holy priest,
This love of life makes me weak in my knees.
And when we get there, make your play.
Cause soon I fear you're gonna carry us away
With a promised lie. You made us believe
That for many men there is so much grief.
And my mind is proud,
But it aches with rage.

If I live too long I'm afraid I will die.

Strangers on this road we are on.
We are not two we are one.
Strangers on this road we are on,
We are not two we are one.
