The Police - Every Breath You Take

The Police - Every Breath You Take





This is a song by the English rock band the Police from their album Synchronicity (1983). Written by Sting, the single was the biggest US and UK hit of 1983, topping the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for eight weeks (the band's only No. 1 hit on that chart), and the UK Singles Chart for four weeks. It also topped the Billboard Top Tracks chart for nine weeks.

The song is considered to be both the Police's and Sting's signature song, and in 2010 was estimated to generate between a quarter and a third of Sting's music publishing income.

Sting wrote the song in 1982 in the aftermath of his separation from Frances Tomelty and the beginning of his relationship with Trudie Styler. Their split was controversial.










Lyrics


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 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 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 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 (Every single day, every word you say, every game you play, every night you stay) I'll be watching you
