Lesse – Stranger

Lesse - StrangerIn the first seconds of the song 'Stranger' by Dutch artist 'Lesse', I am drawn to the rather dark and sad moments in 'Miami Vice (TV series)'. The 80s syn­thwave vibe is par­tic­u­larly evid­ent in the intro. With the intro­duc­tion of the vocals, we jump to the present in an instant. The crisp bass­line defines the clear sound and massively sup­ports the sound construct.

My only cri­ti­cism is the gen­er­ic elec­tric gui­tar solo includ­ing the unin­spired fade out at the end of the song. That could be bet­ter (espe­cially without gui­tar)! Nevertheless, a song abso­lutely worth listen­ing to. This song is part of our Spotify playl­ist ‘New Synth Pop Songs 2022‘.

Lyrics of 'Lesse – Stranger'

Talk to me
Sensed you in my dreams again
I recog­nized your voice
Talk to me
Distract me from reality
I’d rather hear your voice
Talk to me

Spy my admir­a­tion by your sky­ward invitation
Have mercy, this is no place for me
No rules of engage­ment, fill me up with stimulation
Wanna see, what you have in mind for me

Pleading you, beam me up and pull me through
Across the stars, a world brand-new
Makes my con­scious­ness go blind
Burning out, take me for anoth­er round
Bend the rules, I’m beg­ging you
Let the galaxy run wild

Talk to me
Depending on your pres­ence, dear
It’s all I’m crav­ing now
Talk to me
I know they won’t approve of us
A stranger, is all they’ll ever fear

Spy my admir­a­tion by your sky­ward invitation
Have mercy, this is no place for me
What’s our des­tin­a­tion? Fill me up with stimulation
Wanna see, what you have in mind for me

Pleading you, beam me up and pull me through
Across the stars, a world brand-new
Makes my con­scious­ness go blind
Burning out, take me for anoth­er round
Bend the rules, I’m beg­ging you
Let the galaxy run wild

Burning out, take me for anoth­er round
Bend the rules, I’m beg­ging you
Let the galaxy run wild

Pleading you, beam me up and pull me through
Across the stars, a world brand-new
Makes my con­scious­ness go blind
Burning out, take me for anoth­er round
Bend the rules, I’m beg­ging you
Let the galaxy run wild

Pleading you, beam me up and pull me through
Across the stars, a world brand-new
Makes my con­scious­ness go blind
Burning out, take me for anoth­er round
Bend the rules, I’m beg­ging you
Let the galaxy run wild
