Notes: The verse part might not be spot on, but it 
sounds close. Catchy song - hopefully it'll do well 
for the band. Comments & corrections welcome.

Lyrics: (courtesy of http://blondeinside.diaryland.com/index.html) 
 
 
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 cos 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 release time to even out between two people like you and me 
 
But I've been thinking and since we broke up I 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 
 
Now I'm stuck in a moment 
It's bad for my health 
Now 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 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 you do is filtered through that 
 
Now I don't wanna punish or make you unhappy or jealous in any way or hurt you because  
ultimately in time 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 
Now 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 
 
So whatcha gonna do now 
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 mself 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, and  
once again we say it's final then I'm gonna miss you even more, even the most, yeah, 
 
But I don't want you to know that I'm missing you yeah let's establish even more communication  
breakdown and 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
