The Neighbourhood – Sting lyrics

I tried to be someone,
I’ lied to be someone else for you.
If I had done something a little bit differently
We would’'ve moved in a better direction than this, baby.
If you were human, if you were who I'd assume you were
You wouldn’'t have done this
I thought I did something,
But she would do anything to bring me down
And she brought me down

You say that you love me
But you act like you don’'t
You used to adore me, laughed at all of my jokes
Don’'t take this the wrong way
You put me harm’s way
When we had our first kiss, it was your favorite thing
And you weren't lying when you said it would sting
Don’'t take this the wrong way
You put me harm’s way
Imagine our children, how fucked would they be?
Mommy'’s a psycho, daddy lives in a dream
Don’'t take this the wrong way

I told you I'’m sorry, can’'t thank you enough
I thought that I loved you, but we weren't’ in love
We weren’'t in love
You were my drug
The way we would fuck
You like to think, we would push through the bad
Ignoring them problems just to hold what we had.
Don’'t take this the wrong way
Don't take this the wrong way
