If the night turned cold and the stars looked down
And you 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's watched for me
My only friend, who could it be
It's...

    If this song isnt about Christ then I dont know what it could be! "Its only one voice that comes to your defense!If there's one guy who'd lay down his life for you and I it's probably me.

    It's Probably Me by Sting is a very deep meaning too. Yeah, kinda agree with the latest comment yesterday.

    I couldn’t imagine a greater expression of unconditional and complete love - despite the possibility of such affection potentially being ‘one way traffic’ than the sentiments perceived within this script.

    In trouble with a narcissistic personality disorder woman I used to love, this song just seems to me the perfect transcription of our former relation.

    Sting's interpretation does not match lyrics. When they say "My only friend, who could it be [..] It's probably me", then the crual truth is : "Don't trust/count/rely on none but yourself"

    Sting]: It's Probably Me (1992) is co-written by Eric Clapton and Michael Kamen. They'd done a bit of music and they asked me to turn it into the theme tune to 'Lethal Weapon 5' or whatever it was (it was 'Lethal Weapon 3'). I wondered what the hell I could write that would suit 'Lethal Weapon' and I finally chose the buddy movie theme. I figured that the Mel Gibson and Danny Glover characters were big macho guys who'd have some reticence about expressing their love for each other, so they'd say, if you need someone to stop you getting killed, it'll probably be me. I think Eric was quite bemused to see what I'd done to his music
