"A Strange Arrangement" as written by and Andrew M Cohen....
We took the long and steady road
And from the start you had a heart of gold
You broke the mold
I never thought you would decide
The grass was greener on the other side
Of love's divide

You were everything that I wanted and more
Now we can't go back where we started
We'll never be like before

Darling me and you, we had a strange arrangement
But you broke all the rules
And I'm through playing the fool for love
Darling yes it's true, we had a grand engagement
But I can't stand by, while you break my heart in two
Ooh, I've got to be a man
Baby I've got to take a stand, so

So now we've gone our separate ways
But in my heart I feel the burning flames
Of love's remains
I'll have to find somebody new
But all who dare will be compared to you
What can I do

You were everything that I dreamed I would find
Now we can't go back where we started
This is the end of the line

Darling me and you, we had a strange arrangement
But you broke all the rules
And I'm through playing the fool for love
Darling yes it's true, we had a grand engagement
But I can't stand by, while you break my heart in two
Ooh, I've got to be a man
Baby I've got to take a stand, so

Darling me and you, we had a strange arrangement
But you broke all the rules
And I'm through playing the fool for love
Darling yes it's true, we had a grand engagement
But I can't stand by, while you break my heart in two
Ooh, I've got to be a man
Baby I've got to take a stand, so

    My InterpretationI really love the prelude to this song!

    Listening to this on repeat for a while, I would like to hear Mayer sing it as a duet. I don't know who, but I imagine the tone and performance to be just as emotional without another person.
    The duet (to me) adds the fact that the lovers have hurt and pained each other beyond repair of the relationship.
    Thank you Mayer!
