Wrapped Around Your Finger Lyrics

You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charibdes
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at that ring around your finger
I have only come here seeking knowledge,
Things they would not teach me of in...

    The music video furthers the ethereal feeling the song gives off, by having footage of the band performing in a candle-lit, gloomy room, interspersed with scenes of Sting running among tall candlesticks arranged in a sort of maze. Andy Summers is shown playing an acoustic guitar, an instrument never used in any of the Police's recordings.

    The video was directed by Godley & Creme.

    a young man is hitting on a married and older woman (You consider me a young apprentice) (staring at the ring around your finger)

    Everything that she does he follows (wrapped around her finger)

    The roles flip and she becomes in love with him (when the servent becomes your master)

    She becomes obsessed with him (and now your wrapped around my finger)
