Track Name: Stranger Love
Well I don't think you're wondering what I've been up to
I'm trying not to rush to the show
I've been trying real hard
to slow down this one time
'Cause time has been feeling
so precious in my changing mind

And how I wish there was something I could find
to hate about you
to disqualify what I'm feeling
But I don't know you well enough
to know an ugly side
and it's looking like I probably never will

'Cause you're at a standstill and I refuse to run around you
so I'll run circles in my head
and I'll bring people to my bed
who I don't really like to distract myself

Your slightly crooked eyes just made me like you more
I want to see them contort with all the feelings
you said you want to feel but aren't feeling
It's beautiful you want to know the full range of being
but for me that's very real and it's what I'm running from

And how I wish there was something I could find
to hate about you
to disqualify what I'm feeling
But I don't know you well enough
to know an ugly side
and it's looking like I probably never will

'Cause you're at a standstill and I refuse to run around you
so I'll run circles in my head
and I'll bring people to my bed
who I don't really like to distract myself
but that's not helping me this time
Track Name: Take Me to Orlando
I love how you play with illusion
cause you know how badly we need them
to live our silly lives
But honey you’re so real
and you dance around fear
and you tell me you love the way that I make you feel

And I’ll call you Orlando
We don’t have to play roles
unless it’s just for fun
Cause darlin’ you are
just who you are
and you don’t make me feel like I’m the woman I am not

Do you mind if I call you Orlando?
We haven’t even met yet but I know
that you’re the one I want
And you can find me here
I’ll be singing in your ear
and we will see each other as a mirror through the years

And I’ll call you Orlando
We don’t have to play roles
unless it’s just for fun
Cause darlin’ you are
just who you are
and you don’t make me feel like I’m the woman I am not
Oh, hi Orlando
