Every Breath You Take: The Classics album at
The Police's, "Can't Stand Losing You"
The Lyrics:
You can call it lack of confidence,
but to carry on living doesn't make no sense.
Sting's thinking suicide. Simple as that.

The Police's, "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"
The Lyrics:
I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if shell marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?
Cheerful little number in the chorus, but in this section of the song, Sting reveals quite explicitly that his nerves prevent him from even giving this admired lady a telephone call. Poor, shy Sting! :)
