"Strange Things Will Happen" as written by and Johan Duncanson....
Today was a pretty day
No disappointments
No expectations on your whereabouts
And oh, did I let you go?
Did it finally show
That strange things will happen if you let them?

Today I didn't even try to hide
I'll stay here and never push things to the side
You can't reach me 'cause I'm way beyond you today

Today was a pretty day
Autumn comes with
These slight surprises where your life might twist and turn
Hope to unlearn
Strange things will happen
If you let them come around and stick around

Today I didn't even try to hide
I'll stay here and never push things to the side
You can't reach me 'cause I'm way beyond you today

Today I didn't even try to hide
I'll stay here and never push things to the side
Today I didn't even look to find
Something to put me in that peace of mind
You can't touch me 'cause I'm way beyond you today

    My Interpretation"Today was a pretty day
    No disappointments
    No expectations on your whereabouts
    And oh, did I let you go?
    Did it finally show that strange things will happen if you let
    them?"
    This song is great. To me it's about the first day when the singer truly begins to move on after failed relationship.
    She had been trapped by the post-break up obsession, where she "accidentally" bumping into him (hence the expectations about his whereabouts), and then is always disappointed when he doesn't respond the way she wants him too. She hadn't truly allowed herself to let the relationship go, but now she has, and it's liberating. Break-ups often feel devastating and it's hard to have perspective on them, and so she is surprised when she finds that she actually can allow herself to move on with her life. "Strange things will happen if you let them"

    So good!

    General Commentthis song is like finally deciding to put down your weapons and stop fighting. and the strange calm that comes with discovering you can't be touched, and maybe you didn't really want what you thought you wanted all this time.

    General Commentmy best friend made me know this song almost one year ago...
    a comforting song that talks about some little steps you try to make to stop hiding.
    I like how the soft music matches with the lyrics.

    Today I didn't even try to hide
    I'll stay here and never push things to the side

    General CommentIts about a failed relationship, where she has moved on and is happy, but he still is miserable, but .. Not any more. Not today.

    Song MeaningThis song, to me, is saying how we should break this regular cycle of life.
    Great and strange things will happen if you let them
    There's always some people from the other side that persuade us, but we are too scared to act.

    My InterpretationI know that the common interpretation is that this song is about the dynamic between two ex-lovers, and while I understand that this was probably the writer's intention, the song has always been a very different story to me. To me, the artist is singing about life and death. Let me explain:

    In the song, the term "day" is used as a metaphor for a lifetime, particularly, that of the singer (or lyricist.) The entire song is a beautiful story of a life filled with strange occurrences and no regrets, and it playfully encourages the listener (the living) to live their lives to the fullest. 'Strange things will happen' throughout your life, and you choose how they affect you (these slight surprises when your life might twist and turn.)

    The ending of the song almost made me cry the first few times I heard it, because the metaphor and message were so clear and so beautiful to me:

    "Today I didn't even try to hide
    I'll stay here and never push things to the side
    Today I didn't even look to find
    Something to put me in that peace of mind
    You can't touch me cause I'm way beyond you today"

    Amazing song, no matter how you interpret it.
