Lyrics

Just a cast away an island lost at sea-o
Another lonely day, no one here but me-o
More loneliness than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair-o

BEST SONG EVER!!!! and i am only 11!!!! LOVE classic rock :) follow me please!! My fav. band is Led Zeppilin.... cant stop myself from singing with this song!!!! :)
Bruno Mars was inspired by the sound of this song when he did the song Locked Out Of heaven. Sting even liked it himself.
Follow mes!!!
One of their best......
LOVE IT :D
MY SONG!!
i love playing this song on guitar hero!

Funny how everyone of us know casts our bottle into the waves of the Internet hoping to find a response, looking for answers, searching for understandin g . We all send out SOS
This is their best song. Along with King of Pain in my opinion
Seems I'm not alone in being alone

This was their first song I heard. I was seven or eight and I still love them
Great song. I'm lovin it.
LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!
'Better songs'!!?? This is one of the best pop songs ever written. Shakespearea n lyrics, monster riff, back beat to die for, stadium style chant - man, this is on a par with the Beatles at their best.

For anyone who says they were born too late because they wish they were around when a certain band was should really stop complaining. Ur listening to it now Aren't u?

So is the police a good band? I only know this song and "every breathe you take" and "every little thing she does" do they have better songs?
I grew up on this music
"Thumbs up" to far_past_mid n i g h t . . . . . . a l s o , i have a feeling that long before pony express and the USPS, pirates long ago possibly used message in a bottle/parro t s to send "mail" ....lol *smiling*
I've always liked this song
I thought this was Bruno Mars?? Ok, just kidding....
@hitequila - hopefully something more positive than the 1 guy who had his message in a bottle answered by an irate jerk who sent him a reply about how he was polluting the oceans, etc. :-P
I wonder if anyone got it??? And who did??? What did the " finder" do about my sos-message? ? ? ? ? ?
I honestly DID send out a message in a Coke plastic bottle in the ocean while i was on a boat in Maui in 2005.....
Great song!!
fossa98
He has such a unique voice. It's great!
@crunchtheal l i g a t o r -- It's a metaphor. The singer is lonely so he likens himself to being a castaway sending out an 'SOS.' Then he later realizes that there are tons of other people who more or less feel the same way.
Great little tune. What about Stewart's drumming and Andy's angular guitar riff?
Hundred billion bottles? Everyone on the face of the earth is stranded on a desert island?
Ok
Sting is a terrific singer
Awesome band/song!!! ! ! ! ! '
This song is so chill , i almost wish i could enjoy it completely
Where's the lyrics
I hope someone gets my message!!!!! ! :)
