"Strange" as written by Daniel Giles Sells, Richard Peter Jones, Kevin Francis Jeremiah, Paul Ronald Stewart and Ciaran David Jeremiah....
Don't you dig this life
They call the meek
You whose feet are on the ground
And if you get too high
What goes around comes around
And brings you down
'Cause people gonna see you
How they wanna see you
People gonna rate you
People gonna hate you
People gonna shove you
People gonna love you
People gonna do whatever
Makes them feel they own you better

'Cause everyone knows we're strange
(Ah)
So why do you feel ashamed
(Oh) Baby
Everyone knows we're different
(Ah)
So why do you feel ashamed
We love you all the same

That's why
'Cause if you feel it
And if you mean it
Don't apologize
And you'll be just fine
Cause all they ever need is what you'll give them
Is what you're given
They only put you down if you give them permission

'Cause people gonna see you
How they wanna see you
People gonna rate you
People gonna hate you
People gonna shove you
People gonna love you
People gonna do whatever
Makes them feel they own you better

'Cause everyone knows we're strange
(Ah)
So why do you feel ashamed
(Oh) Baby
Everyone knows we're different
(Ah)
So why do you feel ashamed
(Oh)
We love you all the same
We love you all the same
We love you all the same, yeah

    General CommentThis song inspires you to really blossom and be yourself and cut off all the crap from the so called friends who can actually smother you with their opinions. If people slate you, push you, hate you etc, take it as a compilment - they are just jealous and see something in you that they want but can't be. We are all different so respect the other "strange" people around you, cos to them you are just as "strange" We love you all the same!!!

    General CommentI simply love this song. I think it's about people who are different, who don't do what the soceity tells them.

    General CommentAHH. i LOVE this song :]]

    i think it's saying that no matter who you are, where you come from and what you've done, everyone will see you differently so you should just be proud of yourself and let people think what they think.

    General CommentThis song is wondrous. It's like, it's okay, be who you are. People might hate you, people might love you, but that's life. Be true to yourself.

    General CommentLovely, and so, so real. As a transsexual woman, self acceptance and being confident about who I am is THE most important thing. If you lack confidence people jump on you, on the other hand if you are strong and proud people are far less interested in giving you grief. The verse "‘Cause if you feel it And if you mean it Don’t apologize And you’ll be just fine Cause all they ever need is what you’ll give them Is what you’re given They only put you down if you give them permission" just perfectly sums it up.
