"Something That We're Not" is a song by Demi Lovato which appears as the tenth track on their fourth album, DEMI. The song is rumored to be about Demi's brief relationship with Alex Gaskarth.

Critical Reception

On May 9, 2013 in a track-by-track Billboard review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "Lovato takes the melody for a stroll and then lets it sprint on the hook, cramming every syllable of this nimble kiss-off with unadulterated joy. Everything about the song works: the sun-stroked guitar lick, the bratty "Hey!" interjections, the revved-up incredulity of the line "You wanna be more than just friends!," and of course, Lovato's delirious engaging delivery. Brace for blissful ubiquity if this thing hits radio." [1]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I shoulda known when I got you alone
That you were way too into me to know
This isn't love boy, this ain't even close
But you always think we're something that we're not
And now you call me every single night
I only answer cause I'm too polite
We happened once, or maybe it was twice
Yeah you always make it hard for me to stop
But you always think we're something that we're not

Hey!

[Chorus 1]
You wanna be more than just friends
I can't go through this again
Stop trying to get inside my head
Don't wanna do more than hookup
It's getting stupid, cause I shoulda known but I forgot
That you think we're something that we're not

Hey!

[Verse 2]
I hear you're telling every one you know
That I'm the one like you can't let me go
And you just keep on blowing up my phone
Cause you never seem to know when you should stop
Don't introduce me to any of your friends
Delete my number, don't call me again
We had some fun, but now it's gonna end
But you always made it hard for me to stop
Now you always think we're something that we're not

Hey!

[Chorus 2]
You wanna be more than just friends
I can't go through this again
Stop trying to get inside my head
Don't wanna do more than hookup
It's getting stupid, cause I shoulda known but I forgot
That you think we're something that we're not

Hey!

[Post-Chorus]
Something that we're not, hey!
You think we're something that we're not
Yeah, you think we're something that we're-

Not gonna happen dude

[Chorus 3]
You wanna be more than just friends
I can't go through this again
Stop trying to get inside my head
Don't wanna do more than hookup
It's getting stupid, cause I shoulda known but I forgot
That you think we're something that we're not, hey!

You think we're something that we're not
Something that we're not
Something
You think we're something that we're not
But you think we're something that we're not
