The Police

Sting:
“This was our final studio album. I wrote a lot of these songs in Golden Eye, Ian Fleming’s old home on the north shore of Jamaica. Britain had gone to war with Argentina over the Falklands. Young men were dying in the freezing waters of the South Atlantic, while I was gazing at sunspots on a clifftop overlooking the Caribbean. During this time I read Arthur Koestler, whose work in turn led me to Carl Jung. The title of the album refers to Jung’s concept of meaningful coincidence. ‘Synchronicity’ was recorded on the island of Montserrat in 1983.”

Synchronicity I – The PoliceThe Police Synchronicity

With one breath, with one flow
You will know synchronicity
A sleep trance, a dream dance
A shared romance, synchronicity

A connecting principle linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible, something inexpressible
Science insusceptible, logic so inflexible
Causally connectible, yet nothing is invincible

If we share this nightmare
Then we can dream, spiritus mundi
If you act as you think
The missing link, synchronicity

A connecting principle linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible, something inexpressible
Science insusceptible, logic so inflexible
Causally connectible, nothing is invincible

We know you, they know me
Extrasensory, synchronicity
A star fall, a phone call
It joins all, synchronicity

A connecting principle linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible, something inexpressible
Science insusceptible, logic so inflexible
Causally connectible, nothing is invincible

It’s so deep, it’s so wide
Your inside, synchronicity
Effect without a cause
Sub-atomic laws, scientific pause
Synchronicity, synchronicity, synchronicity….
