The Police

Can't Stand Losing You (6:40)

According to Songfacts, this song is about a teenager who commits suicide when he loses his girlfriend. It took Sting only a few minutes to write the lyrics. They are not supposed to be deep and meaningful, but more of a joke.

This was the first Police song to chart. It hit #42 in England when it was released in 1978. A year later, after The Police became widely known, it was re-released and went to #2.

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
