Think the song “Every Breath You Take” is a love song? Think again!

(press pause)

I grew up in the 80’s and quite frankly, I loved every year of it. The music, the era, the girls, everything!!

After all the years listening to this song (currently playing in my Spotify 80’s playlist) I have realized that “Every Breath You Take” by The Police (Sting) is not a love song or even a heartbreak song, but none other than a stalker song. Yes, I said it. I love the song as much as you do, and possibly the most. I might have considered getting a tattoo of the lyrics back in the day. Ok, maybe not, but I really like it.

If you super-duper pay attention to the lyrics, you will see he is dangerously obsessed with the woman. See below;

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

I’ll be watching you  (stalker)

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

I’ll be watching you  (stalker)

Oh can’t you see
You belong to me  (possessive ex, deranged stalker)


Cheese and Crackers Man!!!  If you sent an ex or a person you love – a letter, email, Instagram DM slide, or text like this today? You will probably get arrested or served with an order of protection. Right?
