Citações Sting

„Faço uma hora e meia de ioga todo dia e faço amor durante oito horas toda noite.“

—  Sting

Em entrevista a The Oprah show http://www.sting.com/news/interview.php?uid=1653, outubro de 2003, quando questionado da veracidade desta afirmação, disse o seguinte:
"Mas não é só ter relações sexuais durante oito horas. Quer dizer, isso seria ridículo. Não, há níveis mais profundos de conexão que você pode ter. Você ..."
But it's not just having sex for eight hours. I mean, that would be ridiculous. No, there are deeper levels of connection you can have. You...

„Many miles away something crawls from the slime
At the bottom of a dark Scottish lake“

"Synchronicity II"
Synchronicity (1983)
Contexto: Mother chants her litany of boredom and frustration
But we know all her suicides are fake
Daddy only stares into the distance
There's only so much more that he can take
Many miles away something crawls from the slime
At the bottom of a dark Scottish lake

„Jung believed there was a large pattern to life, that it wasn't just chaos.“

—  Sting

On the song Synchronicity II, as quoted in "Official Police business" by Jay Cocks, in TIME magazine (15 August 1983), p. 50
Contexto: Jung believed there was a large pattern to life, that it wasn't just chaos. Our song Synchronicity II is about two parallel events that aren't connected logically or causally, but symbolically.

„A connecting principle
Linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible
Something inexpressible“

—  Sting

"Synchronicity I"
Synchronicity (1983)
Contexto: 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

„Many miles away there's a shadow on the door
Of a cottage on the shore
Of a dark Scottish lake“

—  Sting

"Synchronicity II"
Synchronicity (1983)
Contexto: Daddy grips the wheel and stares alone into the distance
He knows that something somewhere has to break
He sees the family home now, looming in his headlights
The pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs ache
Many miles away there's a shadow on the door
Of a cottage on the shore
Of a dark Scottish lake

„With one breath, with one flow
You will know
Synchronicity“

—  Sting

"Synchronicity I"
Synchronicity (1983)
Contexto: 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
