Julia Jacklin – Less of a Stranger Lyrics

Julia Jacklin Less of a Stranger Lyrics

Never gonna know you
The way that I want to
I’ll never see you in the wild
You’re never gonna see me through
The same eyes my friends do
Looking in from the outside

Don’t want her to change
Pick apart or rearrange her
Oh, I just wish my own mother was
Less of a stranger

Ever since I left your body
Been a breathless fast swimmer
Slow on the sand
“Will the race bend back home?”
You said you hate being alone
Did you forget the starting gun was in your hand?

Don’t want her to change
She’s always been the entertainer
Oh, I just wish my own mother was
Less of a stranger

When I look into the mirror
I see my father
When I close my eyes, I see you
When you look into the mirror
Does your father appear?
Eyes closed, do you see your mother too?

Sometimes I wonder
Do I intimidate her?
Do my questions and my pain
Take like skin to the razor?

Oh, don’t want her to change
Or feel bad for life’s remainder
Oh, I just wish my own mother was
Less of a stranger
