Every Breath You Take Lyrics

The Police’s 1983 hit “Every Breath You Take” held the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks, earned a Grammy for Song of the Year, and remains one of the band’s most covered songs. Penned by lead singer Sting, it tells of an intensely possessive love, emphasizing the themes of love and obsession. Sting was inspired to write it while observing a past love interest, initially titling it “Every Move You Make” before opting for the current title.

Every Breath You Take Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you

[Verse 2]

Every single day
And every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I’ll be watching you

[Chorus]

Oh, can’t you see
You belong to me?
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

[Verse 3]

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

[Bridge]

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

[Middle-Eight]

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm

[Chorus]

Oh, can’t you see
You belong to me?
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

[Verse 4]

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

[Refrain]

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

[Outro]

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
(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 move you make)
(Every bond you break)
(Every step you take)
I’ll be watching you
