‘Every Breath You Take’-FFF 41

Matt the Book Blogger’s #FlashFictionForay this week…

This week’s edition will be on (drumroll please)… Chase Holfelder’s cover of Every Breath You Take (originally by The Police). Feel free to base responses of anything to do with the song, I always enjoy any different takes!

Now this is a take on a song I knew previously as just the Police original version!

I know if you listen to the lyrics, they are kinda creepy, but Sting singing it made much more of a romantic impression… Chase Holfelder’s version, though very good, had me looking behind my shoulder.. so unsettling!!!

Inspiring, in all sorts of ways!!

I know you don’t want me to know, but I do.
Ever since we split up, you’ve avoided me, blocked me on all social media, not returned my messages or any of my phone calls.
But I still know.
It’s Brett, isn’t it?
I know you said he had nothing to do with it, but I’m not so sure now.
I saw you, leaving his place the other morning at 7 am…  after arriving at 10.43 pm the night before…
Ok, yes, hands up, I‘ve been following you.
Every breath you take, every move you make, I’ll be watching you.

    I’m glad you thought the same as me re this version of the song, to be it’s a little darker and more urgent.
    I love your version, between you and Chase the pair of you have properly freaked me out ffs lol

    OK wow, that is really stalker-y! In a good way! You really grabbed that theme from the song and made it your own, and I think your description of the song as ‘unsettling’ is most apt for your piece too… Thanks for taking part!
    Best wishes, Matt

    At first I thought the Police’s version was a love song (stalking wasn’t in the news as much then)! This one though certainly puts a whole different slant on it, very chilling, as was your story!!!! 🙂

    Yeah, I definitely feel like I’m about to be murdered. Lol. It’s good, though. Clever.

    You are right, I never looked at the song that way. But this version makes it a psycho song… 😰 Great take, I can imagine she writing it on a letter and in the background that song plays!
