"Every Breath You Take"
(please note - this is only my interpretation of the song)

This song was requested a number of times from subscribers all over the world, so I decided to make it available to you in this weeks edition.

As usual, I've broken it down into bite size pieces and added the final piece down the bottom! Enjoy this song and be awesome!
