Don't You Belive Me Baby
Words and music by Sting
From the album demo tape of Ghost In The Machine

 

 

I reached our rendezvous at eight
Relieved to find I wasn't late
I saw you standing in the shadows

It's hard to tell what happened then
I took you in my arms again
I realized I'd kissed a stranger

Don't you believe me, baby
All that I've said to you is true
Don't you believe me, baby
It's just that she looked the same as you

Still I mistook her for a friend
She must have thought me 'round the bend
And I was covered in embarrassment

I made her see I was no punk
No rapist druggie full of junk
And I was sorry for her harassment

Don't you believe me, baby
All that I've said to you is true
Don't you believe me, baby
It's just that she looked the same as you

A whole full hour smoking some
Respective partners had not come
Such disappointment we both tasted

Nine o'clock had brought the rain
She walked away to catch her train
I said "Why should this night be wasted?"

Don't you believe me, baby
All that I've said to you is true
Don't you believe me, baby
It's just that she looked the same as you

Don't you believe me, baby
All that I've said to you is true
Don't you believe me, baby
It's just that she looked the same as you
Looked the same as you
Looked the same as youuuuuuu
(The same as you)

We had some dinner and then some wine
And everything was going fine
'Til you came in and threw the soup at me

I didn't mind the broken arm
The blow has done no lasting harm
I need you here, won't you come back to me?

Don't you believe me, baby
All that I've said to you is true
Don't you believe me, baby
It's just that she looked the same as you
