The Stalker Song

I’m just sitting here this morning, putting together a reading packet for next spring’s PHIL 110 (trying to organize a course in a new way and by making  reader that will cost students far less than any textbook would). (By the way, this is a laborious process!)

Anyhow, this song comes up on my LaunchCast. And I think, hey! How apropos to my life right now. Though I’m certain I’m not the first one to catch this (nor, now I think on’t is it the first time I thought this). Add oddity to irony, and I must admit I do like this song nonetheless. Though it’s got a twinge of the creep factor. Here are the 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
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 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 breath 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
I’ll be watching you
I’ll be watching you
I’ll be watching you…
