Benjamin Brown at the top of the stairs
Apartment 201
Ketchup and beer in a small Frigidaire
Falls asleep to the hum

Lauren Elaine with the sensible shoes
First floor on the right
Woulda’ rented out 202
But she’s afraid of heights

Soul mates and strangers live parallel lives
They cross or they don’t it’s a roll of the dice
We all do our time both sides of the line
Bare as a thread straight as a razor
Soul mates and strangers

She doesn’t like crowds bars are too loud
Wishes someone would just ask her out
He’s saving up for a night on the town
But it never comes around

Soul mates and strangers live parallel lives
They cross or they don’t it’s a roll of the dice
We all do our time both sides of the line
Bare as a thread straight as a razor
Soul mates and strangers

If they meet on the street would the world stand still
Might never happen or maybe it will
