"Strange Love" as written by John Rzeznik and Robbie Takac....
You're likin' what I say
Guess I was afraid you'd run away now
I'm loyal like a stray
Never gonna turn and run away now
A passion junkie's fix is never satisfied
You're never gonna break his heart so have some fun abuse it

Strange love
You're a strange one

You washed away your yesterday
I saw you cleanin' up
A bucket full of doubts
And a little bit of power grabbin'
When it's all done
What are you gonna do
With you

A passion junkie's dog ain't got a collar on
He's never gonna break so go ahead and shake him

Strange love
Breaks us down
Strange love
Though nothing's gonna break us now

And you're actin' surprised
Oh, all of the time
Into your charms
Slips my life

Strange love
Breaks us down
Strange love
Though nothing's gonna break us now

    General CommentI never thought a Robby song could be my favorite on a Goo Goo Dolls album, but when he's singing "Straaaange Loooove" with that piano on the chorus, I get chills.

    General CommentI think this song is about a woman who has a drug addiction and pays much more attention to the drugs she uses than her boyfriend.
    "A passion junkie's fix is never satisfied
    You're never gonna break his heart so have some fun abuse it"

    it's a pretty sad song, but very interesting

    General CommentThis and Let Love In are probably my favourite songs on the album.. His voice is definitly more harsh than Johnny's, but this song is awesome.

    General CommentRobby sings this one! Yeah, when I first got their new album, this was one of my favorites. Still kind of is. I like the way he sings it. It's different.

    General CommentI don't think it's about a woman who's a junkie at all.

    I think it's about a guy who's addicted to affection/passion ("A passion junkie's fix is never satisfied"), and can't get enough with it. The girl he's with realizes this, and knows she can't do anything he won't forgive her for. So, she abuses him emotionally because she knows he won't get rid of her.

    The song is entitled "Strang Love" because even though they have an almost abusive relationship, it works and will never stop working, which is very strange.

    Yep.
