Strangers is a song recorded by American singer and songwriter Halsey featuring Lauren Jauregui for her second studio album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.

BackgroundEdit

"I was thinking to myself, if I want this song to be believable, it needs to be real, so I'm not going to put a girl on the song to sing who's straight. I'm just not going to do it. So I reached out to Lauren and she came in and she cut the vocal and it sounds awesome. Our voices sound really cool together because we both have really raspy voices, mine's a little more delicate than hers. Hers is like really powerful and big and raspy, and mine is kind of like light and raspy. But it's really cool. I just love that Lauren and I are two women who have a mainstream pop presence doing a love song for the LGBT community, it's unheard of. It's very rare to see it from a female perspective.", according to Halsey.

Halsey:
She doesn't kiss me on the mouth anymore
'Cause it's more intimate, than she thinks we should get
She doesn't look me in the eyes anymore
Too scared of what she'll see, somebody holding me

When I wake up all alone
And I'm thinking of your skin
I remember, I remember what you told me

Halsey & Lauren:
Said that we're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all
We're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all

Lauren:
She doesn't call me on the phone anymore
She's never listening, she says it's innocent
She doesn't let me have control anymore
I must've crossed a line, I must've lost my mind

Halsey:
When I wake up all alone
And I'm thinking of your skin
I remember, I remember what you told me

Halsey & Lauren:
Said that we're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all
We're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all

Halsey:
I miss the mornings with you laying in my bed

Lauren:
I miss the memories replaying in my head

Halsey:
I miss the thought of a forever, you and me

Halsey & Lauren:
But all you're missing is my body, oh

So we're not lovers (Lauren: we're not lovers)
'Cause we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all
We're not lovers, we're just strangers
With the same damn hunger
To be touched, to be loved, to feel anything at all (Lauren: anything)
To feel anything at all
To feel anything at all
(You lost it)
(You lost it)
(You lost it)
