"Break Me Shake Me" as written by Daniel Jones and Darren Hayes....
I never thought I'd change my
Opinion again
But you moved me in a way that I've
Never known
You moved me in a way that I've
Never known

But straight away you just moved
Into position again
You abused me in a way that I've
Never known
You abused me in a way that I've
Never known

So break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone

So you're the kind that deals with the
Games in the mind
Well you confuse me in a way that
I've never known
You confuse me in a way that I've
Never known

So break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone
So won't you break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone

She says, " I can help you, but what
Do you say?"
Cause it's not free baby, you'll have
To pay
You just keep me contemplating, that
Your soul is slowly fading

God, don't you know that I live with a ton
Of regret?
Cause I used to move you in a way
That you've never known
But then I accused you in a way that
You've never known
But you've hurt me in a way that I've
Never known

Break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone
So won't you break me shake me
Hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone

Listen, baby
You'll be, you'll be alone

Break me shake me hate me take
Me make me
Fake me break me shake me hate
Me take me
Break me

    General CommentLike Jules_6514 said, this does mean along those lines. 'Screw with me all you want, I will br strong, and I will be the one standing in the end' is what I always thought about, really. Which is about the same as she put.

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG. Geez. It's basically saying, "go on and use me, I don't care." The irony is, most of the time, people who agree to be used are actually using the other person to fulfill one of their own needs. Hence, "when the madness stops, you will be alone" because once the second person's needs are fulfilled, they'll realize they don't need to be treated like crap and leave. Hah. That's all I got.

    General CommentI liked the previous reviews, and admire so much the way that SG displayed the fact of being mistreated, even when they were still so young. And I think that the same anguish is reflected in Darren's second solo work, in songs like "Unloveable"or "I Forgive You".

    General Commentthis song is basically about a girl screwing with her man (the narrator) and him saying, well, next time you will be alone, cause no one will put up with this, least of all me. not quite what the other entries say, but along the same lines.

    General CommentWell...I love this song very much. It really speaks out to me, you know?
    You see. I was kinda messed up in the head at one point, and my "friends" were like, "i can help you, what do you say?" kinda thing,
    Hmm...and well...I accused them, 2in a way that theyed never known" and they hurt me in a way that ive never known.
    They broke me, they shook me, they hated me, they took me over.
    And now "when the madness" has stopped, im the one whos okay.
    And they are so alone...

    General CommentThis song is very clear. She's toying with him, playing with him, using him, abusing him, and messing with his mind. He's telling her, go ahead and do it, and then when you're done, you'll be alone because I'm going to leave. It's about the harms of a love-and-hate relationship.
