"Strange Relationship" as written by and Greg/hayes Bieck....
Do you love me? Or am I just another trip? In this strange relationship You push and pull me 'Till I'm about to lose my mind Is this just a waste of time?

Keep acting like you own me I keep running watch me walkin' out that door I hear you behind me

Gimme that strange relationship Never felt pleasure and pain like this Something so right but it feels so terribly wrong

I keep holding on

Gimme that strange relationship One of us gotta let go of this I keep pushing and you keep holding on

I'm already gone

Do you love me? We break up and back together And I swear to myself never But oh how you do me You strip me of my honor And I don't ever think I'm gonna

Break free of these mind games All I'm tryin' to do is modify my plan Cause I can't contain you....

Gimme that strange relationship Never felt pleasure and pain like this Something so right but it feels so terribly wrong

I keep holding on

Gimme that strange relationship One of us gotta let go of this I keep pushing and you keep holding on

I'm already gone

You keep acting like you own me Like you control me You said you never really wanted me back Well maybe that's a fact May I suggest a brand new plan of attack And in defense of that You're hard to crack You're way off track I want you back I want you gone Maybe I'm sick of holding on

Do you love me? Or am I just another trip in this strange relationship?

Gimme that strange relationship Never felt pleasure and pain like this Something so right but it feels so terribly wrong

I keep holding on

Gimme that strange relationship One of us gotta let go of this I keep pushing and you keep holding on

I'm already gone

    General Commentwell i have to say, i may be an indie girl at heart but i can't deny that i am a secret darren hayes fan, this isn't one of his best, but the lyrics describe a relationship where the woman doesn't know what she wants perfectly xxxxxx

    General CommentYes, I can relate to it too...And I remember saying that it was about a friend of his that was single as himself and they got confused, you know what it's like...
    And it hurts a lot, to be pulled but then to be pushed again...you know it's not good, it's denigrating the way that person uses you...but still feels so good...you know the only way is the way out, but it's so hard to say goodbye to it. Darren does, he's already "gone" in SR. But myself, I am still kind of caught up, trying to find the way out.

    General CommentIt's strange, we can all relate to this song in some degree. I'm just recently getting over a relationship of the same kind. One where, it wasn't ever really a relatonship, more of a dysfuntional unspoken agreement to get together physically every once in a while. And I wanted more, he didn't, and he stopped calling me, possibly because he felt like, "Keep acting like you own me, I keep running". And now I'm having a hard time getting over him, and I think I hate him and want nothing to do with him, but I know that if he ever wanted me back, I'd be there in a second.
    A very strange state of mind to be in, so this song really outlines the emotions that I'm going through, and I feel he's probably going through as well.

    General CommentI know Miss...it sucks...I always tried to convince myself that I was "on the game" and in control as well...but how can you separate within yourself feelings from physicallity?...It would be great if you could do it, but if you don't then you are going to hurt. I was also (and I guess I'm still there) at that kind of dysfuntional relationship that was once a VERY strong friendship that I guess went to hell when we got together for the first time. I pretended to be cool for ages but deep inside it felt like a slap everytime he would just handle me the way he wanted : he had me when he wanted but he would come and go. He had someone else but I was left here on my own. And for ages I tried to convince myself to be nice because of how good as a friend he had been to me once.
    I'm trying and trying to shake him off my life, he's been there for too long (5 years and a half) and I'm so scared to never move on. But then he shows up asking me to go for a trip with him and I find it hard to say "No". He has a girlfriend but ask ME what I did over the weekend.
    I'm sorry for telling you all this, guys, it's just something that I need to get over, but this song has always being the one that describes his confusing and mixing behaviour towards me, the way he misuses me the way he pleases. :(

    General CommentWow girl, I really really really am so sorry that you've had to go through something like this, and still are! You are such a strong person, even if you think you aren't because you'd run back to him if he'd only have you. I feel the exact same way, it is one of the strangest things in the entire world acctually that we have found each other on this site, and are in almost the exact same postition.
    Please don't be sorry for getting this off your chest. I'm happy to help in any way that I can, or even just listen and relate. You are definately not alone in this situation. We just both seem to be completely passionate people who give their all when they are in any sort of relationship. Any guy would be so lucky to have either of us I feel.
    Let's try our best to move on girl...I know it'll be hard. I really have faith though. We can do this! I'll be thinking of you!

    General CommentThank you Miss!! We do seem to feel the same...And I'm so glad you came here!.
    We'll try to move on...It's best if we set our minds into it, and it's easier if we're not alone :)
    I might sound bitter, but inside I am really hopeful as well...I believe the best is yet to come for us. It's just a (LONG lol) stage we had to go...and after that, everything will be better, and we'll be ready to be fully reciprocated and love and being loved more than ever!.
    I'll be thinking about you too!!. Thank you so much!. :)
