Every breath you t..

As if I'd sing that song to you,
you probably think you deserve it at the present time
But if only you knew how you treated me
when we were together then you might understand.

Remember the time you made me wait for a month when you had exams, which I was cool about
but then the night you finished you barred me from all your plans
and you went out with other people.

Now I'll always give you the benefit of the doubt
and I think there's enough natural maturity floating around for the tension and release time to even out between two people like you and me.

And I've been thinking and since we've broken up
I've realised things were mostly in your favour
and a normal person wouldn't put up with this
but for some stupid reason I don't wanna move on.

And now I'm stuck in a moment
It's bad for my health
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself

Now I gotta say that all of this is coming down on me like a tonne of bricks at this present time,
I don't have much cash,
I'm just trying to figure out the rest of my life.

But I think a lot of people would agree that all you need is a feeling of freedom
and when you're in emotional limbo, everything think about and do is filtered through that.

But I don't wanna make you unhappy or jealous in any way
because ultimately in life it's your own choice who you surround yourself with,
and I'm responsible for those things too.

And I've treated people badly at times in relationships
and maybe what you're doing is some kind of payback for all those past lives,
but that also doesn't change the fact that

Now I'm stuck in a moment
It's bad for my health
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself
There's no spirit to find me
And no wishing well
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself

Set me free
Alright
I've gotta get myself out of this thing
If its the last thing i ever do

So whatcha gonna do now?
What you gonna keep me hanging on or something are you?
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on
You gonna keep me hanging on

'Cos I have a feeling it's all in my own mind and if i have anything to do with it
knowing me I enjoy putting myself through this kind of trauma to a degree, How 'bout you?
Thought so

Maybe you shouldn't call me anymore because I need some time to get to know myself again,
then once again we say it's final then I'm gonna miss you even more, even the most.

I don't want you to know that I'm missing you,
yeah let's establish even more communication breakdown and then wonder why later on
all the honesty and trust is gone between us.

Now I'm stuck in a moment
It's bad for my health
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself
There's no spirit to find me
And no wishing well
Well I'm gone
If I don't emancipate myself

Got to get out

Well this things been going on for too long baby

And i've got to do something for myself for a while

Cos you've been treating me so bad for so long
And it just can't go on, it can't go on.

Well I dont want you calling me oon the telephone,
and i dont wanna see your face no more
Yeah thats right
