Every Breath You Take, written by Sting (of The Police)
first recorded by The Police in 1983

This great song was a very big hit for The Police but Its lyric phrases 'You belong to me' and 'I'll be watching you' maybe makes it something of a creepy stalker's men-rule song more than the love song that many took it as being,
At least the first of these lyric phrases, if not maybe both, would be better replaced with 'You belong with me' for an actual love song a bit more like The Hollies excellent Sorry Suzanne below ?

Every Breath You Take.

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

Sorry Suzanne, The Hollies 1969

I can't make it if you leave me
I'm sorry Suzanne believe me
I was wrong
And I knew I was all along
Forgive me.

I still love you more than ever
I'm sorry Suzanne for ever
Hurting you.
You know I never wanted to
I'm truly sorry Suzanne

Well I could never ever justify
All the tears I made you cry
But I do regret it, my Suzanne
You gotta believe me

I was looking round for someone new
What a foolish thing to do
All the time I knew it
Heaven knows what made me do it
Girl !

I can't make it if you leave me
I'm sorry Suzanne believe me
I was wrong
And I knew I was all along
All along.

I'm truly sorry Suzanne.

If you would only take me back again
Things would be so different then
What I wouldn't give for
One more chance to live for
you Suzanne

I can't make it if you leave me
I'm sorry Suzanne believe me
I was wrong
And I knew I was all along
Forgive me.

I still love you more than ever
I'm sorry Suzanne for ever
Hurting you.
You know I never wanted to
I'm truly sorry Suzanne
