It's Probably Me by Sting

Album: Ten Summoner's TalesReleased: 1993Charted:

  • 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'd watch for me
    My only friend, who could it be
    It's hard to say it

    I hate to say it, but it's probably me
    When your belly's empty and the hunger's so real
    And you're too proud to beg and too dumb to steal
    You search the city for your only friend

    No one would you see
    You ask yourself, who could it be
    A solitary voice to speak out and set me free

    I hate to say it
    I hate to say it, but it's probably me
    You're not the easiest person I ever got to know
    And it's hard for us both to let our feelings show
    Some would say I should let you go your way

    You'll only make me cry
    If there's one guy, just one guy
    Who'd lay down his life for you and die

    It's hard to say it
    I hate to say it, but it's probably me
    When the world's gone crazy and it makes no sense
    There's only one voice that comes to your defense
    The jury's out and your eyes search the room
    And one friendly face is all you need to see
    If there's one guy, just one guy
    Who'd lay down his life for you and die

    It's hard to say it
    I hate to say it, but it's probably me
    I hate to say it
    I hate to say it, but it's probably meWriter/s: ERIC PATRICK CLAPTON, MICHAEL ARNOLD KAMEN, GORDON MATTHEW SUMNER

The song was used to cinematically detail friendship, but if you read closely, it's likely about solitude. About how the only one who will truly have the author's support is himself. Amid moments where the ebbs & flows of life forward me into some extensive me time, this song meditates & contemplates well. I hope to create some art like this, in some kinda way at least...:)Private - Globe
I really like this song. It really fits the burnt out psycho cop Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson). I have the cd version and while it is slightly different than the version used in the movie both are major cool. Sting is one bloody brilliant performer.Joel - Cape Town, South Africa
The version of this song that appears in LW3 (during the opening credits) is a much different and more sparse arrangement than the version on "Ten Summoner's Tales". The LW3 version sounds almost like it's being performed by a couple of street musicians.Joshua - Twin Cities, Mn
This is actually on the soundtrack to "Lethal Weapon 3" and not "Lethal Weapon 4"Mac - Milwaukee, Wi
When the song was being aired at the beginning of the 90's, I heard that Clapton not only played guitar, but that he lit so many cigarettes during the recording sessions, that the producer sampled the sound of his Zippo opening and being lit and added it onto the final edit.Jay - Geneva, Switzerland
The music video for It's Probably Me was attached to the movie "Lethal Weapon 4". The duet version of FONTsong appears on the LW4 soundtrack.Chris - Garner, Nc
