Sting (echte naam Gordon Summer) begint zijn zangcarriëre in de band The Police die tussen 1978 en 1986 enorm populair is. In '85 begint hij een solocarriëre en dat pakt goed uit want hij scoort enorme hits als Russians, Love Is The Seventh Wave, Englishman In New York. Fragile en All This Time. Ook in de jaren daarna scoort hij hit maar minder succesvol. Wel scoort hij samen met Bryan Adams en Rod Stewart een top 3-hit met All For Love. In 2003 heeft hij samen met Craig David een enorme hit met de single Rise And Fall. Hierna scoort Sting geen hits meer maar blijft wel albums maken.

Zijn laatste album 57th And 9th verscheen in 2016.

Songtekst

If the night turned cold and the stars looked down
And you'd hug yourself on the cold cold ground
You wake the morning in a stranger's coat
No one would you see
You ask yourself, who'd watched for me
My only friend, who could it be
It's hard to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me

When your belly's empty and the hunger's so real
And you're too proud to beg and too dumb to steal
You search the city for your only friend
No one would you see
You ask yourself, who'd watched for me
A solitary voice to speak out and set me free
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me

You're not the easiest person I ever got to know
And it's hard for us both to let our feelings show
Some would say I should let you go your way
You'll only make me cry
Well if there's one guy, just one guy
Who'd lay down his life for you and die
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me

(guitar solo)

When the world's gone crazy and it makes no sense
There's only one voice that comes to your defense
And the jury's out and your eyes search the room
And one friendly face is all you need to see
And if there's one guy, just one guy
Who'd lay down his life for you and die
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me

I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me

I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me (echo)

I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me (echo)
I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it's probably me (echo)
