"strange" as written by Desmond Child, Andreas Michael Carlsson, Patrick Benzner, David Jost, Dave Roth, Bill Kaulitz and Tom Kaulitz....
A freak of nature
Stuck in reality
I don't fit the picture
I'm not what you want me to be
Sorry

Under the radar
Out of the system
Caught in the spotlight
That's my existence

You want me to change but all I feel is
Strange
Strange
In your perfect world so
Strange
Strange
I feel so absurd in this life
Don't come closer in my arms forever you'll be
Strange
Strange

You want to fix me
Push me
Into your fantasy
You try to give me
Sell me
A new personality

You try to lift me
I don't get better
What's making you happy
Is making me sadder

In your golden cage all I feel is
Strange
Strange
In your perfect world so
Strange
Strange
I feel so absurd in this life
Don't come closer in my arms forever you'll be
Strange
Strange
Like me
Strange

When you touch me
Strange
When you kill me
Strange
All I feel is
Strange

In my dreams too
Together we'll be
Strange
Strange
In a perfect world

Strange
I am so strange
Strange
I am so strange
Strange
Strange
In your perfect world so
Strange
Strange
I feel so absurd in this life
Don't come closer you'll die slowly,
In my arms forever you'll be
Strange
Strange
Like me

    General CommentThis is about feeling like a complete freak in a "perfect" world. I can imagine the person who felt like a freak and having someone reach out their hands to help and the person who felt like a freak loves that person so much that they don't want to corrupt them.

    General CommentIt's about how by living in this world, you're forced to become what others want, or face the pain of being shunned by them, even though you only feel happy being yourself.
    It also brushes upon the fact that love puts this kind of pressure onto the person who bears it, and the fact that because you love that person, you don't want them to feel that pressure.

    It saddens me to see how many people have traded the pain and pleasure of being yourself, for the happiness of being a "normal" person who fits in.
