Another topic he deals with very honestly in "Broken Music". As for the "you" in the last stanza, I agree with vittau's interpretation: It is himself - the man he has become because of all the good and bad "chapters" in his life and is now. Of course, "all that's left is you" could easily be interpreted as a declaration of love to a woman, but I don't think it makes sense here as the whole song is about Sting and his life, not in any way is it a love song.

Anoushka Shankar's sitar summons an atmosphere of mystery at the song's beginning, like the unsettling feeling of encountering yourself in a dream, as song's main character reluctantly digs in the dirt of his buried memories.

Its elements of introspection and self-examination encourage the listener - willingly or not - to come up against some of the events of their own life. In the period before I started writing this record I was engaged in writing an autobiography about the early part of my life - from my childhood through young adulthood up to the eve of success.

I didn't really want to write about success or fame or celebrity or having dinner with Elton and all sorts of celebrity nonsense.

It did bring up a lot of stuff I probably would have preferred to bury and leave in the sediment. I remember being very depressed at the end of writing that book, because all of this stuff was welling up.
