Magic In Tunes: 08/20/2015 – Every Breathe You Take

Whenever I listen to this song, one thought comes unbidden to my mind, “OMG! That guy is a stalker”. I would never never want a guy to watch me like that. That is bordering on obsession and very very close to stalking. And yet, this song has managed to the biggest hit in 1983 topping the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. This, however, is the only no.1 hit for this English rock band, The Police, since then. The band consisted of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. It was written by Sting (yes, the famous one. J) for their album Synchronicity.  Sting himself agrees that people are taking it the meaning for what it is not. He considered it a song about jealousy and possession while people took it foar a soft romantic song. Well, there you go, my sentiments exactly. **Sigh**



Lyrics in English:

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.

Oh 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 Gone I've 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...

Oh 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.

Every Move You Make, Every Step You Take
I'll Be Watching You...I'll Be Watching You

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.

Every Move You Make, Every Vow You Break
Every Smile You Fake, Every Claim You Stake
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

Every Breath You Take, Every Move You Make
Every Bond You Break, Every Step You Take
I'll Be Watching You.
