"Unusual You" as written by Christian Karlsson, Pontus Johan Winnberg, Kasia Livingston and Henrik Jonback....
Nothing about you is typical
Nothing about you is predictable
You've got me all twisted and confused
(It's all new)
Up til now, I thought I knew love
Nothing to loose and its damaged cause
Patterns will fall as quick as I do, but now

Bridges are burning
Baby I'm learning, a new way of thinking now
Love I can see, nothing will be, just like it was
Is that because?

Baby you're so unusual
Didn't anyone tell you, you're supposed to, break my heart?
I expect you do, so why haven't you?
Maybe you're not even human cause
Only an angel can be so unusual
Sweet surprise, I could get used to
Unusual You

Been so many things when I was someone else
Boxer in the ring trying to defend myself
In the private eye to see what's going on
(That's long gone)
When I'm with you, I can just be myself
You're always where you said you will be
Shocking cause I never knew love like this could exist

Tables are turning
My heart is soaring, You'll never let me down
Answer my call, here after all
Never met anyone like you

Baby you're so unusual
Didn't anyone tell you, you're supposed to, break my heart?
I expect you do, so why haven't you?
Maybe you're not even human cause
Only an angel can be so unusual
Sweet surprise, I could get used to
Unusual You

Can't believe that I almost didn't try
When you call my name
Now everything has changed

Baby you're so unusual
Didn't anyone tell you, you're supposed to, break my heart?
I expect you do, so why haven't you?
Maybe you're not even human cause
Only an angel can be so unusual
Sweet surprise, I could get used to
Unusual You

    General CommentThis song is truly amazing.

    It's about being in love with someone who is so different, so random, so puzzling, so mysterious. You're truly devoted to the person, realizing that past "loves" don't compare to the feeling and the love now. THIS is what love is about. It's also about not believing in a way, being jaded from past experiences, so expecting the worst - but of course you hang on!

    I truly adore the intro of this song. The beat is nostalgic, in a way. You know what I mean? It's bittersweet. I love it.

    My favorite line:
    Nothing about you is typical/Nothing about you is predictable/You got me all twisted and confused/(It's all new).

    General Commentpoor brit brit.
    its basically her saying that she's found someone who she loves and who loves her back just the same but it's very unusual to her and shes shocked because her past relationships have ended with her heart being broken, and shes expecting just the same here.

    General CommentWow this is the most beautiful and mature Britney Spears song I've heard so far... Of course, it was not written by Britney Spears and probably has got nothing to do with her. :P

    General Comment"bridges are burning, baby I'm learning"

    probably the best line of the song. i don't know if she wrote it, but it seems a bit of a response to jt's "cry me a river". i'm not a big fan of britney's, but this song is really very sweet. and sad, in a way.

    great tune. hope it's a single.

    General Commenti dont see this as being in love with someone you dont understand.. more of falling in love with someone who truly loves you back for the first time and after failed and bad relationships.

    the chorus with her saying "didnt anyone tell you you're supposed to break my heart, i expect you to..." goes with the idea of not trusting because of past relationships. now shes found someone who doesnt let her down and isnt breaking her heart like all the other times in the past and shes confused but happy that maybe this is a different kind of love.

    "Been so many things when I was someone else,
    Boxer in the ring, trynna defend myself, (maybe refering to an abusive relationship physical/controlling)
    And the private eye to see whats going on, (a guy cheating so shes always has to spy)
    (That's long gone)
    When I'm with you, I can just be myself,
    You're always where you say you will be,
    Shocking 'cause I never knew love like this,
    Could exist"

    so basically this verse is saying how in the past her relationships were always based on her being something shes not (a boxer, private eye) and both of those position indicate negative relationships and shes saying shes finally able to be herself in the new relationship...and shes also being treated right for the first time by the guy. its unusual to her but she likes it...


    i dont know.. i may be putting my own experiences into the song. i've been in an abusive relationship, physically and emotionally, and i've had pretty awful experiences with guys in general. i've finally met a guy though that makes me, the first time, think that love does exist and doesnt have to be painful and hard.
    speaking from someone whos come from a really bad relationship and terribl experiences with guys, learning to trust and believe in anyone and especially men, is the hardest and scariest thing to do again. its like the trama/abuse becomes your norm, so when you find someone who doesnt hit/yell/cheat/etc its hard to believe and a very unusual experience. this goes without saying but i adore this song.

    General Comment"Didn't anyone tell you, you're supposed to break my heart..."

    Maybe it's because she broke his heart instead?

    Who knows?
