Can't Stand Losing You
The Police [nitrofiles.blogspot.com] Lyrics


I called you so many times today
And I guess it's all true what your girlfriends say
That you don't ever want to see me again
And your brother's gonna kill me and he's six feet ten
I guess you'd call it cowardice
But I'm not prepared to go on like this

I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing you
I can't stand losing you
I can't stand losing you
I can't stand losing you

I see you've sent my letters back
And my L.P. records and they're all scratched
I can't see the point in another day
When nobody listens to a word I say
You can call it lack of confidence
But to carry on living doesn't make no sense

I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,

I guess this is our last goodbye
And you don't care, so I won't cry
And you'll be sorry when I'm dead
When all this guilt will be on your head
I guess you'd call it suicide
But I'm too full, to swallow my pride

I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing.
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing,
I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing you

Their sound is just so original. Even 30 years later it sounds original.

It'll still sound original the day the Sun finally goes supernova..

@Keith Nelson exactly. Plus they fit the Post-Punk genre more than anything.

Psyche

@Err0r it’s post-punk you tard. Yeah they have a Ragge influence, but mostly they have post-punk/Ska sound.

One small detail I really like is that when they sing "I can't stand losin' " multiple times during the chorus, it emphazises that he cares more about the concept of him losing than the actual person he's lost.

Adrian Pietkiewicz

@Keith Nelson I don't know where you got that from. What I said in my original comment was that clearly this girl wants Sting out of her life and I speculated that may have been because Sting cheated on her. Whatever the reason she's clearly angry/upset with him

Keith Nelson

@Adrian Pietkiewicz so...you're saying that you can't hate someone you've been in a relationship with????
WTF are you talking about?

Anold Toulon

Highly motivated people tend to think like that.
