The Police - Every Breath You Take

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take

I ll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay

I ll be watching you

O can t you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake

I ll be watching you

Since you ve been gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it s you I can t replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please

O can t you see
You belong to me
My poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I ll be watching you

Every move you make
Every step you take
I ll be watching you

"Every Breath You Take" is a song written by Sting and originally performed by The Police. It was released on their 1983 album Synchronicity. The song is about stalking yet a lot of people think of it as a love song. Sting insists it is about the obsession with a lost lover, and the jealousy and surveillance that follow. He said “I think the song is very, very sinister and ugly and people have actually misinterpreted it as being a gentle little love song, when it’s quite the opposite.” The single was one of the biggest of 1983, topping the UK charts for four weeks and the Billboard Music Charts (North America) for eight weeks. Sting won Song of the Year and The Police won Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the Grammy Awards of 1984 for "Every Breath You Take". The song ranks #84 on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
