Not identical

The Police—Every Breath You Take:
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Madonna—Push:
Every race I win
Every mood I’m in
Everything I do
I owe it all to you

Every move I make
Every step I take
Everything I do
It’s all because you push me


What do you mean they're really similar? Sting's version has 33% more "everies," and Madonna's new version has a new tune. Also, notice how she heard "every move you make" and "every step you take" and totally changed them into "every move I make" and "every step I take," and changed the order of the lines!

Hey, I wonder if Sting was singing about Madonna. Then that would tie up all the little loose ends.
