“"I wanted to explore the relationship between the present and memory. All of us sleep with ghosts from the past, we carry them with us and they have a permanent effect on our daily lives. These ghosts embody all the people we loved, who have been important in our lives, who have changed us. While a lot of people spend their lives in therapy to manage them, I have the chance to carry them through music.“ - Brian Molko, Les Inrockuptibles, 2003
“The album title’s about carrying the ghosts of your relationships with you, to the point where sometimes a smell or a situation or an item of clothing they bought brings a person back. For me it’s about the relationship that you have with your memories. They inhabit your dreams sometimes. There can be a lot in the future that’s gonna remind you of the ghost of relationships past. So I see the album as a collection of short stories about a handful of relationships. Most of them mine. In a way writing the songs helps me to get a lot of the nasty feelings off my chest and put them in a box, and therefore have a bit more of an objective discourse with those emotions because you’ve done something positive with them, you’ve rid yourself of them.” - Brian Molko, Guest Programmers and Specials, 2003
“Inspired by a crazy American psychologist who believes in the cliché of eternal love. He thought two of his patients were soulmates who’d been reincarnated through many previous lives.” - Brian Molko, Rock Sound, 2003

Summary: Based of the song “strangers in the night - Frank Sinatra
Strangers in the
Wondering in the
night What were the
You sat in the beautiful restaurant with
your best friend, BF/N. The place was warm and full of people dancing and
laughing. The band was keeping the cold night happy with melodies and fun. You
sat there in your red dress, with a grin on your face as you scanned the place.
“Y/N, there’s been a boy staring at you for quite some time now”, she told you
as she nodded towards the guy sitting across from your table. As your glance
slowly landed on the mysterious boy in front of you he gave you a small smile,
you smiling back, with a wink. As the night went on you kept exchanging
You decided to go to the toilet you told
your best friend as she answered with a, “okay, then I can ask the dark haired
boy dancing out there, for a dance too”, she laughed and stood up. You went to
the toilet and fixed on your makeup and curled hair. On your way back you
bumped into a tall figure your high heels being a little too tall so you lost
your balance only to feel some strong arms around you. You looked up at the stranger
in front of you with sparks in his eyes. You got out of his grip “thank you”
you giggled looking down on your feet. “No problem, love”, he said, his eyes
still focused on the features of your face.
We’d be sharing love
Before the night was through?
Something in your eyes
Was so inviting
look beautiful”, he suddenly said as you looked up at him pink rushing up to
your cheeks. ”Thanks again, you look good yourself” you said as confidence
slowly hit you. His eyes were bright and inviting as he chuckled looking down
on the floor before his eyes meet yours again.
in your smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you
His smile was bright, you felt butterflies in
your stomach as you knew his smile was meant for you. He held out his hand “would
you like a dance, my lady?” He asked, your smile growing bigger. “I would love
to, sir”, you chuckled as you placed your hand in his.
in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello
You thought this excitement was because he was
handsome and you hadn’t been with a man since forever, little did you know it
was so much more. You followed after him, on your way over to the dance floor.
The song slowed down as you found your spot.
did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing
You placed your left hand on his shoulder, your
right hand in his. You felt his warm skin on yours with his right arm on your
back. Your eyes never left his thinking it was only for one night, making sure
to remember his face.
ever since that night
We’ve been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
are you thinking about?” You felt strong familiar arms around your waist. “Nothing”,
you said with a smile on your face putting the picture from that late summer
night down. He chuckled giving u a peck on your cheek, feeling his head on your
shoulder and his breath on your neck. “What do you think your parents will say
when we tell them the big news?” Your husband of two years asked placing his
hands on your stomach. “That you’re gonna be a great father”, you chuckled
turning around to give him a kiss. “I love you”, he smiled his bright box smile
before giving you another one. “I love you too, Taehyung”, you smiled at the
man in front of you, your eyes never leaving his.
turned out so right
For strangers in the night
Note: Thank you so much to the person who requested this! I’m sorry it’s short and it’s my first time writing something based of a song, but it was interesting :)
