Friday Lyrics Mash: Somebody That I Used to Know Is Watching Me

Tell me who’s watching!
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number?!
I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
I’m afraid to wash my hair
          and find someone standing there!
People say I’m crazy
          reading into every word you say!

I’m just an average man, with an average life!

But you didn’t have to cut me off.
I don’t know anymore . . . are the neighbors watching
          or am I just paranoid?
I guess that I don’t need that though
          and I don’t even need your love
          and I have no privacy.
‘Cause I might open my eyes,
          like resignation to the end, always the end,
          but felt so lonely in your company.
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know.
I guess that I don’t need that though…
          somebody…

Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
I always feel like somebody’s watching me!

So when we found that we could not make sense.
You said that you could let it go.

I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!

Who’s watching?!
And I have no privacy.
No, you didn’t have to stoop so low.
People call me on the phone I’m trying to avoid.
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die –
          psycho too much?
I want my privacy!
But you didn’t have to cut me off!
I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Who’s watching me?!

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
          (that I used to know)
          but had me believing it was always something that I’d done
          but maybe showers remind me of…
          somebody…
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough.
Well, can the people on T.V. see me?
Who’s watching me?!
That’s why
          I bolt the door real tight.
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know –
          tell me who’s watching!
(I used to know…)
Somebody!

I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
And I don’t even need your love!

And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know.
No, you didn’t have to stoop so low.
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know.
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing.

I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Just a little touched!
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number?!
Stop playing tricks on me!

Told myself that you were right for me
          when I come home at night.
Oh, what a mess! I wonder who’s watching me now,
          I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over.
I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over;
          well, it’s the mailman watching me and I don’t feel safe anymore.
And I have no privacy.
Who’s playing tricks on me?
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know.
Who’s playing tricks on me
          when I’m in the shower
          and I have no privacy?

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
          but why do I always feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone, and
          (now you’re just somebody that I used to know)
          now and then I think of when we were together
          but I don’t wanna live that way.
(I used to know)
I work from nine to five; hey, hell, I pay the price,
          but you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough.
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember.

I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Who’s watching?!
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
All I want is to be left alone in my average home!
I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Well, you said that we would still be friends…
          I can’t enjoy my tea…

Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me!
Tell me is it just a dream?!
(I used to know…)
